tom from my bro tom. Cheers! Chill hazed yellow with a small white head. Grapefruit and caramel with some pine and a bit of dough. Mildly bitter, some sweetness. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From bottle. Drinking from IPA glass. Initial aroma is what you expect from an Imperial IPA, but it quickly faded. Taste was high on the malt side with a soapy finish. I suspect this might be an off batch as Iíve heard nothing but good things about this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange pour, thin white head. Typical big hoppy aromas. Citrus, grapefruit, biscuit, a little acidic. Smoother than its aroma. Alcohol well hidden. Fruity and bready, not overly bitter until the finish. Little bit of a candied note on the aftertaste that I wasnít fond if, but overall well balanced and dangerously drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Light amber, slightly hazy, average white head. Oily hoppy body, coniferous, sticky, with sweet cereal malts in support. Long bitter finish. Very good, but not as bright as the regular Tom in my opinion.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught. Decent amber pour with mild head. Sharp grassy hop aroma, some citrus. Grainy mouthfeel, mild plum/grape alcohol, but itís largely dashed away by the strong hops. Bitter finish, but not overpowering. Only a step below the original Mad Tom as itís a bit less balanced, but excellent stuff regardless.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle form the Beer Store. Pours a clear orange with a small lively off white head. Smells of grass and oranges. Nice and bitter from start to long finish. Medium slick body with nice level or carbonation. Very different profile than the regular Mad Tom and not quite as balanced but good nonetheless.

. 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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is a nice orange-amber, mild head, mild lacing. Aroma is full of tropical fruit, something like papaya. The malt is also evident, great smelling beer. Taste is more subtle than expected, but very good. Not a smackdown bitter, good balance. Palate is full, disguising the big ABV very well. Overall, very tasty, drinkably dangerous beer.

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