Dry and restrained. Pours clear and bubbly with ample carbonation. Subdued citrus, malted toffee nose. Taste equally restrained with flat body with some citrus development leaving a big, dry hoppiness on palate but little else. Body unsure; equal parts watery doing little to mask ABV; missing freshness of lighter version.

Pretty good Canadian attempt at an IPA. Pretty expensive though which brings down it's value for the money a bit. 4 pack at The Beer Store for just over $13.00.
A- Nice copper colour. Good head on pour.
S- Rather nice bouquet, hints of floral.
T- Moderately good example of an DIPA/IPA. As a Canadian brew not bad, as an international brew, not so good.
M- Typical IPA
O- Again very good for Canada, pretty mediocre for the world
Thx for looking

Fresh bottle reviewed on 11/11/12. Poured in to tulip.
A - Translucent medium orange. One finger of tan coloured head with good retention.
S - Sweet caramel malts up front that immediately give way to a moderate hop bitterness and some grapefruit, pine and orange peel aromas. Fairly well balanced nose.
T - Sharp bitterness at first that is followed by a big caramel malt sweetness. Some grapefruit, pine and lighter lemon zest flavours are present. Well balanced.
M - Medium body. Light carbonation. Lots of sticky hop oils.
O - A well made beer but not my kind of DIPA. Would like more hop assertiveness.

Enjoy Before 29 June 2013.
A - Pours dark gold and bright with good carbonation. One finger creamy off white head. Good lace chunks and a finger of retention.
S - Grapefruit and pine hops. Soapy, pinesol, grapefruit, candied orange, pineapple.
T - Citrussy, grapefruit, lot's of pine. Some alcohol. Balanced, but restrained. Peach and stone fruits. Lot's of pinesol.
M - Medium bitterness, nice carbonation, full body.
O/D - Like so many other well done American iterations of the style. Too bad we're so far behind. Well crafted and tasty. Seems to lack some of the finer points of better versions of the style though. This is quite simply an amped up version of Mad Tom and doesn't seem to get into serious DIPA territory.

Pours a dark, copper, clear. Off white, light beige head. Nose is pungent hops, lots of fruit, citrus, sweet pear, sugary. Twice tastes pretty hoppy upfront, sweetness comes into the middle, caramel lingering balance. Distinctly Mad Tom, a good hoppy beer when fresh. A Nice attempt at an underrepresented style for Ontario.
