Muskoka Mad Tom IPA

This beer from Lakes of Muskoka Brewery packs a mighty punch, and not just because it’s 6.4% ABV.

The India pale ale pours with an opaque colour and a very thick creamy white head. The aroma is strong with hops and hints of citrus. The flavour is very hoppy with little malt and more hints of citrus…but wait for it…here comes the finish…aughhh! The finish is overpowering with bitterness. On first sip you are likely to make a grimace or wince with your face. This beer is worth trying for the experience. It’s overall craftsmanship is quality, but if you cannot stand a bitter finish you will not have more than one.
