3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, racked 2 weeks ago – decants a hazey gold ale with a 2 finger sticky meringue cap. Modest carbonation. Wonderful floral-citrus aroma with sweet malt undertones. Medium bodied, hoppy character. Flavor is all Mad Tom – big malts big hops in almost perfect balance until the long wet finish where the hops slowly bitter to a real decent hop bite at the end. A decent impy IPA, hope it’s available all year. Smash Bomb has a rival!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear yellow/golden color with a small white head. Very strong citrus aroma. Mainly tangerine, with a bit of grapefruit. Some peaches as well. Medium sweetness on the palate. Good carbonation. Small to medium bitter finish. Very fruity and easy drinkable for a 8.4% beer. Very very nice

Pours a lightly hazy gold. Has a malty and light citrus hop aroma. A strong malty flavor of fruits with pine, caramel, and hops. A dry malt and light bitter hop aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cuivrée et très trouble, quelques notes d’agrumes au nez, une grande amertume sur un sucre satisfaisant. On sent peu le 8,4% d’alcool. Au-delà de mes attentes.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Acquired from trade with Chopz. :) Pours a dark golden amber colour, with a nice finger thick creamy head. Good lacing and retention. Huge hoppy citrus aromas right in your face. Nice floral hop notes. Has a very hoppy flavour, pretty strong, with some malts but much less distinct. Hops are what it’s about. Very tasty and mostly just a tad hoppier than the Mad Tom. A bit bitter on the palate, but not in a bad way. Quite refreshing and the alcohol is well hidden. Thank you Muskoka! love it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks troubles. Clear golden. Aroma of graininess, malt, and stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, graininess, bitter stale hops. Medium-bodied. BBD is 7/16, but already it seems way too old.

A ton of pine and some orangey citrus on the nose. All resiny bitter hops on the palate. One of my all-time favourite IIPAs

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
D’une couleur pale cuivré avec un bon 2 pouces de mousses. Au nez, épicé, sucré, tangerine dream, pêche, mangue. Un goût assez évolutif, un fracas cuivré en bouche qui s’éteint immédiatement pour laisser un arrière goût sublime d’houblon frais avec un amertume impressionnante!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tangerine yellow-orange color. Lace sticks to the glass.
Aroma is dank, oily hops, with a spicy malt (like a rye). There is a second wave of citrus that sneaks into the back of the nostril cave.
The flavor is like pure resin: hop alpha oils are practically floating on top like an oil spill. It has a sticky, woody hop that is just supreme. A hint of something akin to apple skins?
The feel is extremely sticky and oily. It’s magnificent.

Canada, eh? I knew hockey was awesome but who knew Canadian beer was awesome? This beer here is a nice dipa. Great hop aroma to go with a great hop taste. Palate is medium bodied making a easy drinker. Overall, I’m glad I got to try this. I would like to try Mad Tom. I bet it is solid as well.
