Muskoka Twice As Mad Tom IPAMuskoka Twice As Mad Tom IPA

Brewed by:
Muskoka Brewery
Ontario, Canada

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.

A: Copper, hazy, little carbonation of a few small bubbles rising evenly throughout the brew, a finger of off white head. Good lacing.

S: Caramel, malt, orange candy, caramelized onions. All very subdued compared to some, present and strong but not knocking me out.

T: Caramel, orange candy, caramelized onions, big bitterness, balancing sweetness, much more pronounced in the taste than the smell.

M: Thick and bready, syrupy, and resinous all in balance, but it finishes smooth and dry.

O: Excellent double IPA. Its overall a great brew on all accounts, and one that I could drink repeatedly. Drank on by 41st birthday, May 15th, 2014.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip pint glass, no obvious bottle dating.

Slightly hazy orange amber body, but there's a nice cherry hint towards the top. Thick and very symmetrical bleach white creamed head that forms three fingers with clumpy lacing and great retention. Solid looker.

Interesting nose, not a huge hop blast but a good mix of thick alcohol and caramel sweetness and citrus rushing hops. Chewy and leafy citrus orange and tangerines thickness abounds.

Palate has a noticeable sweetness and heavy alcohol thickness with good tolerable hop bitterness. Slightly leafy green and minty mouthwash coating, and toothpaste breath finish. Large thick malt caramel and sweetness with some syrupy orange qualities. Thick alcohol sugars but not horrifically sweet actually, and quite a good sense of buried boozy qualities.

Interesting take, but the mix is sort of fighting just a little with each other between hop and malt, and it's also noticeable on sugar first. Very easy drinking though and pleasurable.
