Notes/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 and unabashedly big bold flavor. 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.

71 IBU

Nose of fresh hops and sugar. It seems to be a typical and well balanced dipa.
In mouth, that' an other thing... An uppercut of bitter hops followed by a resinous taste. In final, hint of caramel and pine resin with a small astringency
Bitterness is long and fruity (orange zest)

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.
