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.

62 IBU

Mad Tom IPA has decent marketing and comes from a decent craft brewery. Said to have a 62 IBU. My guess would have been in 30s. Nice colour. A 1+ finger head. Several raters go places in their reviews I did not experience. I'll have to try again.

I do really like Muskoka's Dark Ale.

473 mL can BB 16 Nov 14 at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of conifers
Head average (2.5 cm), off white, creamy, slowly diminishing to irregular layer varying from 1 to 4 mm with all size bubbles
Lacing fair – partial rings and islands of tiny to medium bubbles
Body medium orange, cloudy
Flavor begins with pine hoppiness which rapidly dissipates, leaving a weak floral after taste; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation

Appearance 3, Aroma 3.75, Flavor 3.75, Palate 3.75, Overall 3.5625. Final weighted score: 3.675.
Unfortunately the cloudy appearance coupled with the medium orange coloration makes this brew look like iron-rich acid mine drainage. However, the hoppiness of both the aroma and the flavor rehabilitate this brew.
