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

Bottled sample. Dark gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, orange, herbs, and minerals. Solid crispy pale malt base in the mouth, backed by more herbal and citrusy hops. Chunky solid bitterness. Nothing over the top, but a really solid and Chinook heavy IPA. Definitely one of the best Ontario IPAís Iíve tried/

Fairly dark cloudy gold with a white creamy lasting bubbly head. Zesty Lemon herbal hop smell. Tart tingle sharp citrus body, thin. Huge grapefruit hop bitterness and light caramel. Sour bitter dry finish. The freshly squeezed pink grapefruit feel. Refreshing with a lasting acidness and bitterness

A very zesty,citrusy offering.Beautiful golden colour. A promising brew but lacking the malt backbone it needs and ultimately,unbalanced.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2013 Fresh, citrus and pine aroma. Very grapefruity taste, perfect level of hop bitterness - a lot of brews go too far. This is a cloudy, blonde beer with a dissipating head. A fairly dry, refreshing finish.

Thanks to both JB84 and pushkinwow for sending me this beer! Pours a hazy golden with a good size head on it. Some grapefruit and orange scent but not overly strong. Tastes a bit grassy with some grapefruit. Quite bitter. Not too bad!

355ml bottle. Aroma is strongly sweet, pink grapefruit citrus hops with undertones of spruce, florals and caramel malt. Pours a light, cloudy amber with some sediment. Good amount of slightly yellow head. Pink grapefruit taste with a little caramel. Tastes a lot of hops, but not as much bitterness as Iíd expect. Lighter body for an IPA. Overall, light and sweet for an IPA; itís good, but not great.

In short: A bottle grapefruity and orangy bitter hops with no malt backbone. Good refresgubg summer hop-fix
How: Bottle 355ml. Consumed fresh a week after purchase
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body, lots of tiny particles, small white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is tangy/grapefruity hops with not sign of malts. Taste is pretty much the same. This beer is cruelly lacking in the malt department with only traces of basic plain crackery malts swimming in a yeast and hop soup. But the lack of malts didnít bother me much because the hop bill is right for that kind of beer. Nothing resinous and not overly dry hopped. Just a good amount of grapefruity hops with notes of freshly squeeze oranges and orange peels. Lemony acidity. Sharp biting bitterness of medium intensity. This beer is just high alpha-acid hops with no malts to balance it off and it works to a certain extent. A refreshing bottle of bittering hops, nothing more, nothing less. I like this beer because it is very inexpensive so I can even give bottles to my imaginary friends that live in my head, because Iím like Ikea furniture in a box, Iím cheap and Iím missing a couple of screws.

Had this months back and like it even thought im not a hop head but ipaís are the better hoppy beerís. Gives a 2-3 finger head looks nice. I attempted to chug this since I had it b4 but ipaís are not easy 2 chugg. Most down 1st attempt but 2 sips 2 do it. Filling and chugging it gives a nice buzz. It smells of citrus mostly and hopís. taste of citrus,pine AND HOPS. Not a hope head but I like it. cheerís.

Pours cloudy dark yellow with thick pillowy head and some floaties. Aroma is big citrus and tropical fruit hops. Taste is a big, hop-led IPA. Some serious dry-hopping here. Pretty intense bitter finish. I like some more malt balance in my IPAs generally, but this is well made for what it is,

Drank on tap (20 oz) at Black Tomato (Ottawa) on November 13, 2011. Reddish pale, thin head. Sweet aroma of grapefruit hops. Grapefruit hop flavor, some notes of herbs, aftertaste of bitter herb. Wow! This is not crap!
