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.

Cask at Pub Italia. Pours a clear amber with rocky, kind of mushy looking beige head. Aroma is a pleasant balance of citrus (lemon peel, orange) and spruce. Flavor is moderately malty, borderline toffee notes, that make way for a sharp sting of pine needles of bitter lemon peel. Hop sting is sharp but fades more quickly than I’d expect. Enjoyable overall.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a clear amber with little white head and some lacing. Aroma is pretty malty, some grassy hops and little citrus. Taste is about the same, little bitterness and some light citrusy and grassy hops. Medium to full body and medium-low carbonation. I'm really not sure about the freshness of this one. Seems like faded hops. Will need to try it again.

Ferris (6587) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle - Grapefruit, orange and sweet malts. Clear copper with a thin white head. Sweet and a subtle pine, with a ton of pine and bitterness. The fish is all bitter and something is making my teeth squeak. Not a fan.

Keg at west 50, Missisugua, Ontario, 3rd May 2013. Half pint with brother on law, who sank a full pint. This is tasty, good beer, slightly sweet for my taste, and unusually I would have preferred slightly more carbonation

Freaky_tiki (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2013
Soft pour with limp one mm cap. A taste that puts the ’u’ in Ontario ipa flavour. Love this brewery: from bottle design to brewing they got it going on.

Beerenberger (1551) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2013
(A trade from Sammy) Grapefruit and pine with notes of malt comprise the nose. Pours a pretty hazy, orangish amber with a foamy mostly lasting tan head and spotty lacing. The taste is hoppy with just the right balance of malty sweetness. Medium body with medium carbonation. Bitter aftertaste present. Overall, a every enjoyable and drinkable IPA. Thanks Sammy!

A pretty good double IPA. Very hoppy, medium bodied and a bit unbalanced. Still, this was one of the better acquisitions in Toronto.
