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.

Thanks to Steve for the bottle. Pours a light gold with a nice white head. Big aggressive citrus and pine aroma. Light malt body with big residual citrus pine hop bitterness in the taste Good stuff.

Kauge (1780) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2015
Bottle from LCBO. Shouldve checked the BB date - got it a week ago and its due already. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a fast dissipating creamy white head. The nose is... disappointing - the hops have faded, and giving an earthy note, yet I do get some sweet, unripe blood orange and malt sweetness, and resiny hints. Tastes along the same lines. But its light - the alcohol shines through, it really does. The thin crisp carbonation, the alcohol and finishing harsh bitterness dont make for a successful trio. This one really seems to suffer from the past BB date (unlike the original Mad Tom, which was pretty nice). Id give it a maximum 3.0, but as I sense its a nice beer if not the old age, Im tweaking the score just a bit.

I know Im still not being fair. Ill try to get a fresher one and rerate.

Entre le blond et lambr, elle est voil et recouverte dune mousse mince et soyeuse. Une dentelle dsintresse saccroche la paroi du verre. a sent les agrumes et les conifres sur une base de malt. Des effluves poivres loccasion. Des saveurs dans la mme palette avec un aspect croquant et alcoolis se retrouvent en bouche. Une lente amertume arrive en fin de parcours. Ya quelque chose dherbac et un ct gras et dodu. Merci Mark! (1580-070915)

17/VIII/15 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle from a trade @ home - BB: 7/VI/15 (2015-1096) Thanks to cards04 for the trade!

Note: whoops, didnt see the bottle printing of the date when I got this one. Had I known, wouldve drunk it immediately, though I did save them in the fridge all this time. Another claim for brewers to put dates on bottles more clearly, if even at all.

Clear orange beer, aery irregular yellowish head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, marzipan, alcohol, fruity, sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, citrus touch, bitter, malty, marzipan, fruity. Aftertaste: very bitter, some mango, citrus, bit oxidized, malty.

On tap at MacGregors for Phils last week. Sweet and spicy aroma with caramel and citrus and pine. Clear orange amber under a white cover. Caramel malt with some resinous pine and faint citrus. Medium body, moderate carbonation with a lightly bitter finish.

jb (3118) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2015
I prefer Tom when hes mad but not double mad. A bit too much Tom. Booze not well hidden in nose or taste. Absolutely no subtlety going on here. Grainy. Clear dark gold.

ElManana (2035) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle at tderoecks place. Smells almost like a barley wine, very sweet, malt, not an inviting smell. Taste is better than I was expecting, but its in no way on earth an IPA. Very sweet, malty, caramel character. However, not bad!

Big and bitter taste. Really nice floral aroma. Hazy orange in appearance with a thin head.

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.

Simonm223 (6) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015 does not count
A very good strong IPA. Lots of evergreen notes, somewhat akin to drinking a pine tree. But if you like that sort of thing itll work; and 8.4% ABV you can afford to drink it slowly.
