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.

Matt got this one in a trade and was kind enough to share. +++ sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-copper color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet tropical fruits and grapefruit. The flavor was dryish and very bitter with moderate tropical fruits and grapefruit.The bitterness lingers forever with some tropical fruits also sticking around. Medium body. Too bitter but some really nice elements here.

Bottle from LCBO in Ottawa on last morning. Clear amber orange pour. Aroma is orange and ginger hops. Nice. Taste follows - lots of malts. Big boozy bitter finish. Nice.

A very good strong IPA. Lots of evergreen notes, somewhat akin to drinking a pine tree. But if you like that sort of thing it’ll work; and 8.4% ABV you can afford to drink it slowly.

Deux fois houblonnée à froid? Oui monsieur. Ça se faire sentir dans les arômes d’ananas et de malts qui rappellent la ferme. Jolies rondeur pour accompagner le tranchant de l’amertume.

(Thanks Cody) - Alors là, wow! Superbe IPA, toute en puissance. L’amertume dans le tapis, pas trop fruitée, sur un lit de caramel non sucré, avec l’alcool qui se montre humble malgré son volume. Je préfère les trucs plus «tropicaux», mais celle-ci, dans son genre, est tout à fait réussie.

UXO (803) - CANADA - APR 11, 2015
Pours clear deep gold with one finger of medium dense ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, little to no lacing. (3/5) Nose is pithy grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine resin, light malt. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, immediate strong bitter. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry bitter finish. (4/5) Much as with its smaller brother single IPA, I can’t say I notice a lot of difference between this version and the prior, filtered one. Even though it’s unfiltered, it poured crystal clear, and though I’m tempted there might be a bit more rich earthiness to the flavour, I couldn’t swear to it. Impressive integration of the quite high ABV makes this clean drinking and a little dangerous. Still one of the best beers routinely stocked by NLC. (16/20)

BeAndrews (30) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
Pours a hazy-amber with an off white head. Smells of citrus, hops, and grass. Tastes of citrus, and hops-- bitter. Has medium carbonation and long bitter finish.

Très belle bière orangée au nez complexe d’agrumes. Abricots, oranges, mandarines... un très beau panier de fruits qui nous comble de sa fraîcheur! Tout en étant bien fruité, le nez est légèrement baratté et gras, ce qui ajoute une rondeur et un douceur des plus agréables à ce vif mélange. La bouche est aussi complexe que le nez mais d’une différente façon. Bien sûr l’amertume comme les agrumes sont encore bien présents, et à ceux-ci s’ajoute une pointe légèrement âcre (l’écorce d’agrume) qui s’harmonise très bien avec ce malt bien présent qui aurait été une menace à l’équilibre général. C’est frais, résineux et très effervescent. Le corps est généreux, la finale longue. Excellente DIPA!

Bottle: Cloudy, brown-orange.....small off-white head. Orange, piney hops, caramel scent. Bready, bitter resin, grapefruit-peel taste. Orange and caramel malts. Nice, heavy bittering....balanced well with the sweet orange.. Smooth.

Bottle. Orange-grapefruit malt and grapefruit peel/pine aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange-lime malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel/pine flavor. Nice balance. Pretty tasty.
