A: golden orange hue, slight lacing with a moderate head

S: hops hops hops, great citrusy floral aroma

T: This is a perfect IPA in my opinion, floral, mighty bitter, astringent

M: dry, smooth and slightly carbonated

D: highly drinkable, but I would savor each glass as long as possible.

If you like hops, buy this beer the instant you see it and buy as much of it as you can afford, then hide it from all of your friends. Or if you are extremely generous share one. Either way get it and put it in a proper glass.

4.97/5  rDev +22.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Hazy amber with thick off white head leaving heavy lace.

Aroma: Lots of floral and tropical fruity hop. Pineapple stands out a little.

Taste: Tropical fruits including pineapple. Sharp, a touch sour with floral notes. Some sweetness from the malt balance, with ABV a little noticeable. Lasting bitter finish introduces some grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full, nice carbonation, dry finish.

Drinkability: This is an intense IPA that really showcases the flavours of the Tomahawk hop variety. Extremely tasty and great for self education about which hops can create which flavours.

Gawd, this is good beer! Poured with a HUGE cream colored foamy frothy sudsy textured head that lasts a long time and loads of lace. Color is an orange amber. Aroma is malt caramel and hop. Flavor is like aroma with a little fruit and more bitter and sweeetness. More earthy (the way I like it) than some of the other IPAs. Excellent body and carbonation. Despite the power and fullness of the flavor the finish is like the flavor but not overly long. Satisfying and yet leaving me with a wish for another swallow. Yummm.

Pours a bright copper with an off-white meringue head with sticky lace.
Gives off a floral and fruity aroma with notes of pine which then flourishes into fruity pineapple, mango skin, apricot, green banana, grapefruit and some lingering grain.
The taste is of pine and bright, tart grapefruit, with some herbal and earthy tones followed up by malt on the back that barrels into a delightfully bitter finish.
Creamy and well carbonated, with a medium body.

Robe orangée, mousse épaisse et persistante. Nez herbacé, on s'attend à ce que l'amertume soit bien présente... et ça ne loupe pas. Bouche ample et très amère (un peu terreuse) mais bien fondu avec le côté malté qui ressort (malt pilsen, cara-crystal et munich). Bonne longueur, très très plaisant et l'amertume bien que très présente passe superbement bien... du grand art. Bravo Mikkeller ;-)

Draft to pint glass. $7.50

A: Served with a big head, most of which was pushed out by the bartender in the interest of serving a full pint. Creamy mousse-like off-white head. Excellent retention. Sticks in sheets and encrusts itself on the glass. The body is a muddy amber and mostly opaque (60%) but very clear in front of light. Excellent lacing.

S: The aroma and flavor are wonderfully hoppy. Orange and pine and bitter. Very little malt character to speak of. Malts that are present are caramel and bread. Dank and slightly musty and faint straw. Tomahawk isn't my favorite variety but it does very well on it's own and my admiration is growing each second. Its a pleasure to appreciate a solitary hop variety standing on it's own merits.

M: Full and thick making the flavor last forever. Very bitter all the way through, dry at every point, but mouthcoating. Absolutely perfect.

D: Excellent on all accounts and highly consumable. With the Tomahawk Single Hop IPA, Mikkeller proves that they can brew an American-style IPA better than many American breweries...with one hand behind it's back...if you chose to view it that way.

Serving type: on-tap

Another beer from the NEPA Beer Club's latest case split.

Appearance: An easy pour into my DFH Off-Centered Ale Glass, this beer erupts with a huge, thick mountain of head. Almost had myself an overflow. Once it settles, which does take some time, there is plenty of sticky lacing clinging to the glass. The beer itself is a rich, slightly cloudy amber color. Coincidently, the glass is sitting next to a clear bottle of iced tea, and the two are virtually identical.

Smell: An uncomplicated singular hop smell, which makes sense considering this is a single hop IPA. The hops remind me of overripe grapefruit, a little sweet but plenty of bitter.

Taste: Straightforward and simple, a decent malt backbone with some grapefruit hops. Pretty tasty.

Mouthfeel: Nice medium body, good texture, good carbonation.

Drinkability: A great tasting, not overly-complex IPA with some great hop flavor. This is my first single hop IPA from Mikkeller, and now I'm really looking forward to trying the rest. Highly recommend.

On tap at the Blind Tiger, NYC.

Poured a hazy copper hue with a one and a half finger foamy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a serious full blown peppery hop.

The taste consisted of a hop forward full pepper with a slight malt detected

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a lingering hop spice.

Overall a very spice single hop.

Here we go again i love these single hop IPA's and keen as to trying this style as i love the tomahawk hop,this brew pours a nice honeydew,apricot hue with really nice carbonation that leaves a creamy dense two finger head and lacing everywhere just like a milkshake,the aroma is really piney,citrusy hops and i mean piney,the piney hops come through on taste with a tinge of stonefruit in there aswell and it finishes a little bitter but very subtle compared to other single hop IPA's and the mouthfeel is very sessionable neither thick nor thin,overall a really nice IPA that isnt as bitter ending as most other IPA's and couldnt really fault it will definately buy again.

This is a simply incredible IPA, full of hop flavour, juicy, complex and delicious.

Smell is full of citrus, and foresty pine, gooey grapefruit and a solid, off-sweet malt.

Taste is more of the same, amazingly balancedx, fruity, piney, very hoppy but with a great malt backbone, and even some unique belgian-like yeast character...finishes nice and dry.

Such a good IPA from a simply incredible brewery.
