COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Columbus Tomahawk Zeus is the primary hop variety in War Hammer as well as the inspiration for the name. We use a combination of Pacific Northwest hops to create layers of pungent flavors. A generous malt bill adds biscuit and honey notes while allowing the hops to take center stage. War Hammer pours golden in color with aromas of pineapple, mango, tangerine, resin, & slight earthy notes. Drink fresh!

musinj6 (506) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Pours hazy golden with 1 finger head that lingers, leaving medium to heavy lacing. Toasted malt with grapefruit and tropical fruit mediumbitter hops. Medium body, moderate, pleasant carbonation. Long bitter finish. This is a great imperial IPA.

On draft at the brewery. Apricot aroma, very mild carbonation. Stone fruit and slightly grassy hops, finishes with a touch of yeast. Not as bitter as I expect for an IPA, it is more fruity if anything which is a nice balance for an Imperial IPA.

I had this at 4 Hands. Pours gold with a white head. Taste citrus, mildly sweet, slightly dank/funky. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Shamrocks. Pours a light gold color with a fair head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and pine. Taste of tropical fruits and slight malt sweetness. Nice bitterness lingering into the finish. Medium body, crisp, bit tart with alcohol lurking in the shadows. Tasty

mikeymike (75) - Kansas, USA - APR 6, 2017
22oz bomber. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a one finger white head. Aroma is big citrus, with grapefruit and tangerine leading the way. Taste is a mix of citrus and light pine, with moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium-thin with decent carbonation. Overall, a solid DIPA from four hands. I like it slightly better than Cash Money. It would be phenomenal with a bit more citrus on the tongue and a creamier mouthfeel.

brigg (668) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 11, 2016
(Bottle) Reddish-orange, copper body with a medium cream head with some thin lace. Powerful aroma hits you hard as soon as you open the bottle: very fruity with floral notes, pine needle, and alcohol; notes or orange and papaya. Flavor is sweet, some bubblegum, ripe tropical fruit, hops, moderate alcohol. Light to medium body, oily texture.

BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 12 ounce bottle. Appearance: Clear golden with a ginger of head. Leaves plenty of lacing behind. Aroma: Light citrus, slightly tropical pineapple and mango notes, caramel malt sweetness, honey. Taste: Biscuity and caramel malt sweetness, orange, pineapple, and slightly earthy. Palate: Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, bitter, balanced. Overall: Very hop dominant and just enough complexity to keep things interesting.

gururyan (722) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - APR 22, 2016
Poured into one of those impossibly thin hotel room plastic cups wrapped in even thinner plastic sheeting, the ones next to the ice bucket. Picked up a bomber from the closest booze retail. Smells and looks like a winner IIPA, tastes like one too. I enjoy this one quite a bit, solid A on this one but would need a tweak to get the A+. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reddish-orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity hops, hops that invite you to take that first sip. Taste is easy going down beer, mild carbonation. Tasty as hell beer. Hops and malt marry together in harmony. Little fruity, all tasty. Alcohol hidden, not the flavor. Wow! Great lacing.
