This is a very solid beer! Pours amber with good foamy head retention and tons of lacing. Nose is nice pine and some resin. Aromas are awesome as well, an initial big piney hop hit backed up by some sweet balance. Cereal, maybe biscuits, citrus. Mouth is medium body with lively carbonation. Tastes are good bitter up front, medium sweet though the middle and a great bitter finish. Awesome!
Can shared at work. Intanse orange peel in thw nose, less intenense in the taste. Intense lingering bitter aftertaste. Very nice dipa. Thx balazs. shawnmurphy (535) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2017
16-ounce can from LCBO in Toronto pours hazy yellow-gold with trace white head and lacing. Aroma: faint citrus, honey. Flavor: pineapple, mango, grapefruit, honeysuckle, sweet pine. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied. Much better than the regular Mad Tom, which is far too sweet. sawyerpc15 (145) - Bowser, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2017
AfTer trying mad Tom who could resist trying twice as mad Tom. It did not disappoint. More of everything I liked. Brettsky06 (464) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 28, 2017

Pours very bold and bright, hazy gold orange, soft and sticky lacing. Aroma is juicy, dank, malty - orange, grapefruit, caramel, damp leaves - very faint compost note here. Taste is lovely - fruit juice, pine, toast, woody hop bitterness, big bitter hop finish that isn’t offputting.
I always liked this one in the past, but I must’ve caught it on the right day for my review, cuz I’m loving this at the moment. Well above the regular Mad Tom, a very good beer in its own right. BrewWhatIWant (238) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a white head that thins and leaves some lacing. Aroma is citrus and sweet malts. Taste is sweet with a fairly mild bitterness. There are notes of bitter orange rind, sweet marmalade, and pungent pine in an excellent balance. The beer has a very light mouthfeel despite what seems like a full body. Much better than the lesser mad Tom if a bit excessive in its hops. mikkopen (1172) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2017
473 ml bottle. Hazy yellow colour, thick white head. Citrus-fruity, malty aroma with caramel and pine notes. The flavour is malty, with sweetish tangerine and notes of peaches, and a lingering bitter finish of resiny and floral hops. Good stuff. zvikar (6198) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - NOV 5, 2016
Orange, small head, orange and marmalade aroma, orange flavor, bitter, mandarine, medium bodied. Gluepot (647) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2016 Started a new rating on this one two years after buying this bottle. This double ages really well. The hop profile has changed but not diminished, adding elements of dankness and fruit rind - two great elements for a DIPA in my view. The malt and body have grown in richness with a dense caramel and apricot backbone working well with the hops. Stash away and see what happens!
