Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Columbus Tomahawk Zeus is the primary hop variety in War Hammer as well as the inspiration in 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, and slight earthy notes.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured out a clear, golden amber color with a two-finger head of off-white foam. It left some sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of pine and burnt toast maltiness.

T - It tasted of pine and some nuttiness. Good caramel sweetness with some spicy bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a pretty good Imperial IPA. I enjoyed my first 4 Hands beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - slightly hazy amber color. Light biscuity head with nice lacing.

Smell - very crisp hoppy aroma.

Taste - hoppy upfront with notes of citrus and an earthy character throughout.

Mouthfeel - light crisp, with a nice bitter bite.

Overall - if you like hoppy beers then this one is for you. Terrific aroma starts the experience with a crisp hoppy finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Another solid beer from an up and coming brewery in the heartland.

A: Hazy golden
S: Strong tropical citrus with some yeast behind it
T: Pretty much same as the smell but the piney hop profile takes over for the yeast
M: Crisp and clean up front but the lupulin--oh, the wonderful lupulin--stays around for a long time
O: This is a great tasting/sipping IPA. It's not something you're going to want to drink after you mow the lawn on a 102 degree summer day, but it's something you're going to love sipping on while sitting on the porch or back deck after a long day.
