Inspired by late night stories around the fire, Muskoka Mad Tom will instantly grab your attention.

One of the best beers available in Canada. The beer has a very rugged "outdoor" taste and the first mouthful is a strong reminder that this is not a typical beer you buy at the beer store. Strong sweet citrus taste at first that quickly reveals a hoppy flavour that fills your mouth and lingers for quite some time. The beer almost has a warming quality to it and it tastes great after a cold night. The slightly sour undertones remain in your mouth and the more you drink the more you become accustomed to the taste as your pallet gets used to it. Surprisingly refreshing the more you keep drinking and by the end you will be wanting more. Drink from a class for optimal smell and flavour, great beer for a night around the campfire or to have after shovelling snow. Refreshing with the perfect balance of hop, citrus and a flavour i cant really explain. I will keep buying as long as it is available!

Now this is an IPA I can get behind. Brought it in bulk into my store in anticipation for some tastings later on that month and I managed to grab an extra bottle that had already been bought, but not used. Look out, here comes in the Hop Train. Very grassy and earthy. A nice 'natural' feeling to the hops that gives you that familiar smack of bitterness. Luckily, it has one of my favorite qualities in a beer: bitterness that doesn't linger on your pallet too long. A great, sassy color that seduces you into drinking it and then convinces you to finish the entire pack.

Amazing beer. Great job, Muskoka! Keep up the good work.

Purchased as part of a six-pack of bottles poured into a pint glass.

Pours a nice amber colour with about a half finger head that seems to want to stick around. A fair bit of lacing. Medium to fast carbonation.

This has got to be one the best smelling IPA's out there. A multitude of sweet fruits come to mind, as well as an underlying hoppiness. It is a lot to take in...

Now this is an IPA! The fruity and hoppy flavours balance out perfectly to leave a tasty, dry, almost graperuit-esque finish which is just fantastic. This beer packs a mighty punch.

Muskoka was not afraid to go all-out on this one, and I couldn't be happier. Probably my favourite brewery in Ontario right now.
