Notes/Commercial Description:
Inspired by late night stories around the fire, Muskoka Mad Tom will instantly grab your attention. Dry-hopped with Chinook and Centennial hops, this IPA has a vibrant aroma, depth of flavour, and crisp citrusy undertow like no other. So brace yourself, and crack one open for old Mad Tom. This is an awakening in craft beer that gets more enticing with every sip.

341 mL bottle, chilled and poured into a pilsner glass

Appearance- Pours a clear and light amber colour with about a pinky finger worth of white head that quickly dissipates to an above average ring around the glass leaving minimal to no lacing throughout till finish.

Smell- pine and resiny hop aromas right away the second this one is even opened you get a nice whiff of it mixed with a mild citrusy fruit smell as well. There is also a sweet aroma in the nose that I can’t really put a finger on as to what it exactly is, almost like a bubblicious bubble gum smell, but it adds a nice change to the typical IPA.

Taste- Again really a lot like the aromas, the tastes come through with a strong pine and resiny hop flavour right off the bat, bitter but not overly bitter like some IPA’s can be, and again balanced with a nice citrusy grapefruit flavour as well. Even on the palate I am getting that sweet flavour again, much like what I would say a sweet bubblicious bubble gum flavour.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied this is an excellent ale that has a nice bitter taste to it but remains crisp, smooth, and almost too easy drinking, not overly carbonated but it sustains a thin white top to it right till the end.

Overall- There is pretty much only one word to describe this beer and it is; wow. I can’t believe something this good is actually brewed in Ontario! It is about time that we took a couple good steps towards catching up on what the rest of North America has been doing for years. I have drank some of the best IPA’s that this continent has to offer and to be honest with you, this is right along those lines as being in those categories, I mean it’s no pliny or double trouble, not even as good as a two hearted, but again it is a positive step in the right direction, I would say “One small step for IPA lovers, one giant leap for Ontario”. I am definitely picking more of this up tomorrow, this will be my go to this summer, finally I don’t have to drink to Michigan for a great IPA, it’s right in my backyard!
