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.

Had not idea it was a double IPA. Smells like and IPA. My wife will love this. Itís got that IPA bite. That choke your uvula grapefruit tartness. I know itís a character of the style, and one I donít like. I guess Iím one of the few people who arenít fans of what seems to be a Canadian pale ale revolution. Now I get that breweries are like "Keithís isnít a real pale ale" but Iíve had more than enough attempts to usurp that throne. Note is you havenít figured it out yet, I donít like true pale ales, and I totally get that some people, my wife included loves them and to each their own.

Pours hazy orange-amber with a 1-finger off-white head. Citrus and piney hops aromas over a light note of caramel. Body is a little fuller than medium. Oily, with a dry finish. Resiny hops flavor over caramel malt. Maybe some citrus at the back.

italianjohn (2891) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Pale golden yellow pour with lots of white rocky head, very lively and lots of lacing .... Aroma of grapefruit, lemongrass, orange, caramel malts and light pine with hints of floral hop .... Tastes like a barrel aged IPA really different has a light vanilla like flavor, orange, grapefruit, lemon, rind and hints of a piney/floral hops .... Citrusy and rindy with solid balanced flavors .... Finish is citrusy with lingering malt and bitter dry hops ... Solid and tasty dbl IPA

Bright golden color with a smallish white head. Aromas of floor malt, Cedar and mild citrus. Full sweet start, with cedar, pine, lemongrass and mild oak. This reminds me of a few barrel-aged IPAs Iíve had. Very traditional (IMHO). Fairly hot in the finish and linger. This one grows one me. Some mango, nectarine and light melon come out as it warms. I like the traditional vibes, but still seem to like the new school ways a bit more.

guil0000 (382) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 16, 2016
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.

Cuivrťe et trŤs trouble, quelques notes díagrumes au nez, une grande amertume sur un sucre satisfaisant. On sent peu le 8,4% díalcool. Au-delŗ de mes attentes.

AleRider78 (672) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
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 itís 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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Maxís 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.

355ml. bottle from the L.C.B.O. in Ottawa. The color is a clear amberwith a thin beige head. The aroma is of hops and more hops,peaches,herbs and some citrus fruits. The taste as above plus added malt to give it a good finish.A good double I.P.A.

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
