UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle via trade with Andrew - thanks! Slightly hazy orange pour with a soapy white head. Aroma is pine resin and mild caramel malt. Little bit of citrus also creeps in on the taste. The finish could be a little bit more balanced but it’s far from being super bitter. Quite enjoyable.

Quite a good medium bodied medium bitter medium sweet bread bubble gummy ipa. Bit too sweet for me but quite good.

Bottle. Orange-amber pour with a soapy off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma with some toffee malt underneath. Quite a hoppy flavour, lots of citrus and some grapefruit bitterness at the finish. Fairly thick texture, not overly carbonated. A really nice IPA.

Muskoka must know-ka what they’re doing when it comes to brewing an IPA with a lil’ flair. This hazy, unfiltered medium amber tipple is really sessionable and easy to scoot more than a few down the ol’ throatster. Lots of citrus and floral hops balanced by clover honey and light caramel malt flavours. It’s refreshing and the low carbonation and smooth feel make it a breeze to let it please.

TheRatKing (105) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Just finished Muskoka’s Detour, and now diving into this. Mad Tom is a very nice venture down into proper IPA territory; pours a hazy amber colour with minimal head and an excellent hops aroma. Taste hits you hard with delicious hops only slightly tempered with a bit of sweetness. Built for hops lovers, none of whome should be disappointed.

Hidden_Pooch (276) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
This was a nice refresher of an IPA, it seemed to lean more towards floral and grassy, then some old big pine tree IPA. Poured a hazy copper, with a small off white head that was quickly gone. Aroma was of floral hops, citrus, and grass. Tasted of caramel, toffee, citrus and light pine. Had a medium body with low carbonation. It finished with a refreshing bitter aftertaste. I could really session on this brew.

Miksu (4946) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2014
0.473 l can, thanks Sampo! Amber color. Strong aroma of pine, onion, pepper, apricot and lemon. Fairly aggressive piney and lemony taste with cat pee, grapefruit, menthol, pine resins and strong bitterness. Agressive but still drinkable IPA. Not my kind of hop character (pine, cat pee).

Niall73 (1405) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Can from LCBO. Pours amber with a slightly off white head. Aroma is caramel with funky veg. Medium body, medium carbonation. Caramel, light funky veg, pine, resin, wood, light grapefruit bitterness. Sweeter than I remember, good though.

Canned, 473 ml, from a friend. Pours hazy orange with nice white head. Citrus hoppy aroma. Fruit hoppy flavor with pleasant bitterness and dry finish.
