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.

Had a nice tropical dry finish, however I'm sure they didn't double hop chinook and centennial groin contrast to their "mad Tom," which is upsetting to me because those are two of my top five favorite hops. I was foolish to expect this beer to be epically elite, but it still was a good beer nonetheless.

After years of personal testing and countless beers consumed, Muskoka's Twice As Mad Tom is still hands down my favourite IPA in the region.

Hints of Grapefruit peel, lemon zest.

If rocks could rot, they would taste like this.

Pours orange out of the bottle, with a quickly dissipating head, and decent lacing as weak rings cling to the side of the glass. What really stood out to me about this beer were the intensity of the floral and herbal notes. They really mask the alcohol content, and the dry tropical finish makes this a very enjoyable brew.
