BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Muskoka Brewery
Ontario, Canada
muskokabrewery.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.40%

Availability: Year-round

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.

i'm drinking this a week past expiration date, so that's the disclamer. but as it stands, this beer is flat, like zero carbonation, with an aroma of a candy jar filled with mints and taste of turpentine and alcohol. claims to be unfiltered. not a single cell of yeast on the bottom of this bottle. i don't like when people pull my chain - this beer is a dog; see my other reviews, i'm always more than fair.

Hints of Grapefruit peel, lemon zest.

If rocks could rot, they would taste like this.

How did you do it?

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)

Pours into a nonic a clear brass color with a hlf finger white head that settles quickly.Alot of caramel and toffee in the nose with some piney hops about even with the malts,seems like par for the course for the style here.Lemony and citrusy with a big sweetish caramel and alcohol element,there is some butteriness in there as well wich you don't find much in a DIPA.Not bad but it's too sweet for my liking really.

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.
