COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Tomahawk is a great American hop variety, high alpha acid content and plenty of floral impression. This Single Hop IPA is a very powerful fellow who will probably scare off more people than he amuses but for a true hop head looking for a bitter experience this is nothing less than heavenly.
Ingredients : Water, malts (pilsner, cara-crystal and munich), hops (tomahawk) and yeast.

Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Aroma is not massive, but is pleasantly hoppy, perhaps with some brick dust and tar/honey. Flavour is hop honey, with some flowers on the finish and piney/resin-y bitterness. This doesn’t feel particularly flavoursome or distinct, but I just find it very nice indeed.

kraddel (2704) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle @ Barely Legal Tasting Room Pours rather dark , amber , clear, with a good to big white head . Very intense , bitter smell , with hints of stonefruit , citrussy aspects, and hoppy earthyness . Taste is - to my big surprise - not nearly as floral as the smell . its bitter, mostly, with some floral tones underneath . nice, not great . The scent is the best part here !

lillmuffin (43) - Haugesund, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2014
1st taste of the Bottlecollection from the mikkeller store. Smells like plant, hops and something that reminds me of the smell of wet pencil. Taste is very bitter. Some citrus in it. Maby orange? Hops and grass.

Klimaet (69) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2014
Shared with pro-homie Rasmusott. Aromas of floral hops, very piney and citrus-like, light earthy and caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, a quite bitter and fruity refreshing taste with some floral and piney notes aswell.

RasmusOtt (1051) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2014
Shared by rookie homie Klimaet. Thanks a lot. Pours copper orange with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, pine-needles nice citrus fruits, weak grapefruit, herbs, weak earthy and weak caramel - notes - but not a turn-off at all. Taste has nice bitter and refreshing hops, blood-orange, peach, pine, lemon peel, floral notes, and some weak earthyness. Very good indeed! Sessionable bigtuim.

Vells (620) - LATVIA - MAY 31, 2014
Pleasant single hop from Mikkeller again. Actually I was quite surprised that tomahawk is so subtle. Some maltiness in background, candy, tropical fresh fruitiness, pine and resin. Drinkable refreshing IPA with interesting hops. Like it

Tap. Dark amber color. Tiny size head, disappears. Hops, faint malts, fruity aroma. Oranges, juicy, hops, herbal, fruity, candy in taste. Light body. Nice juicy bitterness. Long lasting hoppy bitterness in aftertaste.
