Generally speaking, I'm not much of a fan of strong beers. Usually, I find strong beer to be kind of sweet tasting, and once they get a little warm, they become terrible. That's why I was surprised to learn that Muskoka Brewery's Mad Tom IPA was a strong beer. It's pretty decent.
Mad Tom is an unfiltered India pale ale. This means that it's a little cloudy when it hits the glass. With the color of a light orangy brown, it tasted as good as it looked. Mad Tom had a decent hoppy taste that wasn't overpowering.
My guest drinker Violet gave this Canadian IPA five burps. Personally, I think she rated it to high. I thought it was only worth 3 burps. It was a good beer, but it wasn't a damn good beer. Having said that, if you want a strong beer that will hit you before you go to the bar. Give it a try. You'll be able to drink more than one.
