COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While the legend of Mad Tom is laden with mystery and intrigue, one thing remains clear: Mad Tom did things his own way. Twice as Mad Tom is an aggressively twice-dry-hopped Imperial India Pale Ale, that delivers a definitive hop aroma & unabashedly big bold flavour. We brew this beer with the road less traveled in mind, and in the spirit of old Mad Tom...we make no bones about it.

A very well balanced creation. Sweet citrus, resin and pine notes, solid hops. Well-hidden alcohol content; very drinkable.

HipHopOpotamus (229) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Very good IPA. I think one of the best from Ontario. Good to see Ontario stepping it up a notch with a great Double IPA.

355 ml Bottle. Pours clear amber in colour with little off white head and lacing. Aroma citrus, peppery and grassy hops. A little bit sweet with a bitter aftertaste. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation. A nice beer for its kind..Not my favorite...

Bendrixian (1108) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2013
Clear brew with amber colour and fine bubbled head. Muted aroma, why filter a double IPA? quiet brew with little aroma but showing some citrus, cereal and resinous hoppy notes. again, reduced flavour, sweet brew with a pine cone finish. Extremely disappointing, muted, reduced and lacking any real punch. good beer but as a double IPA it is light.

Atheist_Peace (948) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
355ml bottle. Dark golden highly filtered pour with an average off white head. Lots of cereal grain and caramel with a piney hop presence. Piney on the palate with a reasonable bitterness but nothing outstanding.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2013
In short: A sugary boozy bitter golden IPA. High aggression, low drinkability. Meh.
How: Bottle 341ml, consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase.
The look: Shining clear golden body topped by a medium off-white head with good retention.
In long: The predominantly hoppy nose is grassy+citrusy and also a bit sweet. Not fresh aromatic citrus fruits here, more like dried fruits and candied fruits. In mouth the beer is very clean, polished toasted sugary malts, a bit too much residual sugars for my liking, alcohol is very much apparent (feels more than 8.4%), resinous hops that are part-grassy part-citrusy part-conifero. Brutal bitterness augmented by the alcohol bite. Seems like crystal malts were abused in this one. Feels like intensity was the goal in the creation of this beer, how to make a simple IPA as aggressive as possible while keeping the abv relatively low. Drinkability is unacceptably low for a beer of this style and gravity. I canít give it a very low score because it is so clean and professional but this is pretty much the exact opposite of what Iím looking for in an IPA nowadays. A bottle given to me by my brother because he didnít want it after he saw Muskoka employees pissing in the fermenters, but thatís not true, my brother is a pathological liar, even worse, all this story is not true, my brother never told me that, we are all pathological liars in my family.
