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.

Nectar of the Gods... this goes beyond beer and into the realm of sustainable food product, something the world needs more of. It takes real skill to manage those west coast hops, and these lads not only know how to do it but capitalize on it.... the beer is centered yet aggressive, floral and malty, yet balanced at every turn. And turn it does, presenting itself in the most of intruiging of ways on the nose, opening up into the malt centre on tasting and finishing in a flurry of exotic floral abundance, all in a naturally sweet (not sugary) package. This beer is in the pantheon of Ontario beers. Many have tried to do a Double IPA well. Few have succeeded.

Copper colour with a thin lace. Bitter grapefruit hop aroma. Lovely bitter fruit flavour. Slight oily texture with a sharp citrus bitterness which cuts through it. Very nice.

OntBeerDrinker (389) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2013
smells really bitter and agressive from bottle. Citrus and grapefruit from glass. 3 finger long lasting head and yellowy orange with some carbination. Some sips taste like citrus and grape fruit,some sips have a sticky sryupy feel and pine taste. Medium-heavy bodied. Not my perfered kinda style of beer but I liked it.

neongolden (329) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
(355mL bottle from LCBO) Pours a clear copper with a small bubbly white head, little lace. Aroma grapefruit, orange, tropical fruit, slight pine, caramel malt. Flavour up-front is a mix of malt sugars, guava, orange pop, fading into grass and a bit of biscuit with some lingering orange and drying out towards the finish with fairly restrained bitterness and a bit of pepper, no alcohol. Palate is medium, carbonation fairly high, mouthfeel slightly oily. This is an ok DIPA but not a great one, I find the sweetness up front a bit high, the bitterness quite light and the complexity a bit lacking. Not as refreshing as normal Mad Tom either.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2013
Bouteille 355ml. De couleur cuivrée et claire. Nez de houblon résineux, fruité (agrumes, léger de pêches, petites notes de fruits tropicaux), légèrement herbeux et citrique, de malt sucré, moyen de biscuits et de léger de caramel sucré. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture moyennement huileuse aux notes résineuses et crémeuses. Goût moyen-amer de houblon citrique, fruité (agrumes, notes d’abricots, traces de fruits tropicaux) aux notes résineuses et herbeuses (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt sucré, léger de biscuits et de caramel aux faibles notes rôties et terreuses puis en finale l’amertume de houblon se veut plus asséchante, plus herbeuse et résineuse avec des traces d’alcool. Post-goût long et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon moyennement résineux, citrique, herbeux et légèrement fruité (zeste d’agrumes, traces de pelures d’abricots).

tom10101 (2243) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle (355 ml). Thanks to czar! Clear golden/amber with a small creamy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus and malt with slight fruity notes (strawberries). Taste is moderately sweet with malt/caramel, pine, citrus and slight fruits. Moderate bitterness. Medium body. Mouthfeel is oily. Pretty good, but a bit too heavy on sugar.
