Still in northern Ontario. Seriously, I think the other provinces may have been out taking a leak when ‘they’ allocated land mass.
Anyway, saw some sights including a rack of Vancouver Canucks hats in a gas station in the middle of nowhere (no other hockey gear just the nucks stuff), saw a town sign boasting both a snowmobile and a four-wheeler, numerous moose crossing signs but no actual moose, and one beautiful stretch of scenery around Lake Superior, which is still ringed in ice.
For my Ontario beer selection, part two, I had a Mad Tom IPA from Muskoka Brewery in Bracebridge, Ontario. This IPA pours cloudy orange with lots of bright white head, and a big citrusy nose. Mad Tom is a world away from the typical west coast IPA but this is not a bad thing in my book. Light bodied, citrus and slightly grapefruit in hop profile with a mildly bitter finish. Overall well-balanced with enough leanings towards the hop side of things to satisfy your inner hop head.
P.S. The server informed my this was the last bottle of this particular IPA but they did have Alexander Keith’s as well. Way too tired to open that can of worms after almost twelve hours on the road…
