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.

pours hazy gold with a thick head. looks pretty damn good, it is unfiltered as well.

smell is very bland to me, not much going on here. bready malt and that's about it.

taste is bitter yet sweet. goes down smooth enough but could be smoother. i taste honey in this, caramel malt as well. finishes bitter and dry.

overall this is solid but nothing special. good taste but no aroma and the mouthfeel isn't great.

This falls within the pale and somewhat boozy tasting area of the double India pale ale spectrum. The alcohol flavor comes across as a bit strong in a style where hop flavor usually manages to overwhelm the higher alcohol content.
That being said, this is an enjoyable serving of beer. There are some mango flavor in there, along with some potent hop flavors. I'd get this again but it is likely that there will be something available for me to try that I would rather try before I revisit this.

Really intensely hoppy flavor, minimal bitter aftertaste, satisfying as far as IPAs go, but I could probably only do one of these pints at a time.

Smelled very bitter and strong, head was thick and bitter. The brew itself tasted somewhat light then very bitter after taste. Somewhat unbalanced.
