Inspired by late night stories around the fire, Muskoka Mad Tom will instantly grab your attentnion. Dry-hopped with Chinook and Centennial hops, this IPA has a vibrant aroma, depth of flavour and crisp citrusy undertow like no other. So brace yourself, and crack one open for old Mad Tom

Aroma is citrus and herbs. Appearance is clear golden and pale. Taste is a nice bitterness. Palate is a thin texture, medium body and a average carbonation. The finish is long and bitter. Overall a great IPA with great bitterness.

cervmagpt (288) - PORTUGAL - JAN 5, 2015
Review based on BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14B). Bottle 35 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: malty sweet and caramely aroma. some very faint floral hop aromas. APPEARANCE: orangish/amber color and very hazy. thin head of a slight ivory color with average retention. TASTE: faint floral and grassy hop notes with a somewhat malty sweet background. medium bitterness that lingers beyond a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: an IPA that lacks the aromas and flavours of a dry hopped brew (maybe old bottle?).

HopsandBolts (145) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy yellowy orange colour with a finger or so of white head with little retention. The head fades leaving quite a bit of fine lacing.

Aroma: Pine, grapefruit, mandarin oranges, caramel, yeast, light malt.

Flavours: Pine, grapefruit, hops, cereal, hints of yeast.

Mouthfeel: Full and a bit sticky with moderate carbonation.

Overall: I love this IPA and have drank it many times but never rated it before for some reason. This to me is one of the best IPAs going. The aromas are strong with pine and citrus right off the bat. The flavour comes through full bore with pine and grapefruit. Awesome!

HKdIPA (364) - HONG KONG - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle from LCBO at Anton's. Hazy translucent orange copper pour - nice - with thick dense head. Aroma is juicy hops - like Tuatara Double Trouble or De Molen Amarillo - pineapple, citrus, mango. Taste follows - quite heavy malt base with lots of hops on top. Again, like Amarillo but less boozy and more bitter. Lingering bitter finish. Solidly good IPA. Tastes more like the modern European craft IPAs than most North American ones.

codfishh (121) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with a thin fluffy white head, lacing sticks around the glass. Aroma has some pine and grapefruit with some peach in the background. Taste sweet honey like malt balanced with a firm bitterness lots of juicy citrus tangerine grapefruits. Finish is dry the bitterness doesn’t stick around in the aftertaste.

Martinus (3440) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2014
Slightly hazy amber golden colour, slight white head. Aroma of malts, raisins and tropical fruits. Sweet malty flavour, light bitter. Bitter finish, malts, hops and grass. Feels a bit old.

Can version, Piney hops, earthy malt, not much citrus/caramel, sticky bitter finish. OK drink but not my favorite IPA character.

12oz bottle given to me by Pizz5116. Pours a hazy orange color with a small somewhat fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, fermenting peaches, and old citrus fruit. Taste is vinuos, with rotted citrus, pine bitterness, and caramel malt.
