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.

fiulijn (14513) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle from West Coast Liquor, Burnaby
The cleverly hidden bbd says it should have been consumed before 18 Oct 2013

It pours a hazy orange-amber color with medium head. Some aroma of caramel and fading hops. Lean body, malty, not too sweet, with mellow caramel, pleasant fruity hops, a bit of sweet orange, correctly bitter.
A good beer although unfresh. I’m willing to try again the new batch.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
A golden amber I2PA with a thin lacing creamy off white head. In aroma, pungent catty and floral hops, meaty notes, biscuit malt. In mouth, a nice smooth biscuit malt with nice citrusy hops, resinous and piney, oily mouthfeel, light alcohol warmth. On tap at Arrow and Loon, Nov. 14 2012.

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 17, 2013
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - clear bronze beer with a poor head retention; pine needles and resiney hoppiness; full-bodied and with some sweetness; chewy marmalade hoppy finish, notes of warming alcohol, almonds, honey and hay - lot of character

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle just arrived at the LCBO. A good drinking DIPA. Orange and tangerine, a complex and interesting melange. Smooth for a DIPA, not a palate eraser. Something I would certainly drink again, and again.Hazy orange.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2012
Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is bright and hoppy. Clean grapefruit and pine along with a touch of light spiciness. Some lean and light maltiness with a little touch of soft tropical hop flavour in the back as well. Well-integrated with a bright and citrusy hoppiness up front that is backed by some very light malt character. The hop profile is similar to the regular Mad Tom but there is a more tropical flavour in the mid-palate. It’s a damn solid DIPA.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2012 2012-12-04. Quick notes. More bitter and stronger tropical fruit character, with more of an oily/citrus peel quality to it than in the bottle. On tap at C’est What, Toronto

2012-11-23. Crisp orange body, small beige head. 3+ Aroma is quite hoppy, grassy notes, fruity tropical fruit notes, citrus that is not quite grapefruit, tangerine. 7++ Flavour is similarly quite hoppy, lots of fruity hops, tropical fruit, mango, modest bitterness throughout. Alcohol is nearly invisible, lingering tropical fruit, modest bitterness.. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate is a touch lighter than expected, but adds to the drinkability. Pretty nice stuff.

DuffMan (6738) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2013
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.

On tap at Volo
Aroma clean, aromatic , good hop profile with straight in your face character. 7+
Appearance mid amber with long lasting top. Some lace shown. 4-
Flavor and Palate : front hefty , sugary , crystal like malt. Plenty of hops on top. Felt a bit cloying with plenty of sugars still on plate. need to try another sample to see if this was regular thing.

mcberko (6419) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2013
355mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours a fairly clear darker golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of residual sugars upfront, sweet caramel malts, oranges, and some citrus hops - uh oh, seems to one of those sugary IIPAs. Flavour confirms this, with an upfront flavour of orange soda, candied sugar, and then the hops show face, but they are restrained. Way too much residual sugar makes this one way out of balance IIPA towards the malt side. Strange - the regular Mad Tom is great, so I thought this would be a sure fire great IIPA, but nope - I much prefer the regular one. Flawed, but still drinkable.
