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

500mL can, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours a hazy golden with a big white head. Aroma of piney hops, slight citrus notes and a crackery malt backing that is well-pronounced. Flavour brings out citrusy and piney hops mainly, with a slight herbal quality, with a thin crackery malt backing simply for balance. Easy drinking and refreshing, though nothing overly impressive.

What a great looking, great smelling and great tasting beer. Lots of juicy citrus and peach aromas with some pine too. Sweet, sugary malts with juicy fruits up front. A sharp bitter finish. Just delicious stuff

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Pint ordered at Brother’s Beer Bistro in Ottawa, Ontario on 06/05/2012. Colour: Medium-light yellow with generious white head. Nose: The hops play lead fiddle on this one showing grapefruit, tanins, old barn and herbs. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-heavy bitter, light sour. Lovely basket of Centenniel and Chinook. Citrus comes on late again with grapefruit and lime and there is a deep piney finish. Quite tasty!

473ml can from wilco. Golden pour, lightly hazy. Big white crown of clingy foam on top, frothy and rocky, generous lace. Big citrus nose, pine, oranges, pineapples, very fresh. Big sharp hop flavour shows pine, grapefruit and orange notes. Light malt sweetness beneath, faint fruity character deep in there. Long bitter finish with grapefruit and a bit of pine lingering. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel with relaxed carbonation. A solid IPA with good visuals, big drinkability, and nice hop character and bitterness.

Good, but underwhelming. Had heard that this was amazing, and yes, it is nice and hoppy, but lacks proper balance. Perhaps fro me it just didn’t live up to the hype. All in all it is a good beer, but would not be showcased in my top local favourites.

473ml can, sampled at 9.1 celcius. Modest head, light gold body with small carbonation bubbles. Sweet hops aroma, fresh and sugary. Flavour is standard IPA with a slight dry lager finish. Balanced and average, decent, not exceptional, nor complex.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Draft at the ship in Hamilton. Amber, with a thick, luscious lasting head and gorgeous lace. Bright and assertive hop aroma is leafy, herbal, and kind. On second pint, the mushroom character emerges pleasantly. The palate leaves lots of hops on the tongue, high alpha but nutty and scrumptious. Flavors are sturdy, with big body and great toasty malt backbone that never becomes cloying. Impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

northropfrye (3101) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 22, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 More golden yellow in colour than most IPAs. Vibrant pine aroma. Taste of bitter hops, some honey. A decent IPA.

oakbluff (434) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 20, 2012
12 ounce bottle- hopefully reasonably fresh as lord knows where the mlcc gets their beer from and how long its sat somewhere. Appearance- pale straw, one of the lighter Ontario IPA’s I’ve come across. Nice pillowy white head and sticky lacing. Nose- fresh cut lawn, pineapple and melon. Taste- nice suprise, pine and white grapefruit rind with a cookie dough malt backing. Nice stuff, only complaint is the mouthfeel is a little too creamy and lower in carbonation than my preference in an IPA.

473ml can thanks to grub.
Appearance : Slightly hazy yellow with small white head. Some lacing.
Aroma : Great fruity notes with light resinous and piny notes. Nice floral notes as well.Light malt.
Taste : Fruity and resinous. Finish is rather resinous and piny. Light floral notes. Light malt. Nice bitterness. No trace of alcohol. Slightly sticky on finish. Quite crisp.
Palate : Soft carbonation. Quite soft actually. Nice but maybe a tad too soft.
Overall : Great session IPA. Nice fruity and floral notes. Nice bitter backbone. Nice malt as well. Well balanced and quite drinkable. Really well made and this is a first for Muskoka in my experience. Nothing fancy but just very well made and quite tasty.
