Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured a deep red-orange with a three finger off-white head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, caramel, caramel hop, spice, spicy hop, pine, pine hop, and dark fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, spice, earth, earth hop, caramel, dark fruit, and spicy hop. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. The aroma on this one was one of the more complex and involved ones that I have experienced with brews from this style in all my days. This was definitely a nice feature, however, there was just so much going on that it became just a little overwhelming trying to pick out things that were present in it. The flavor kind of went for the opposite idea as there wasn’t a huge amount going on, but it did manage to be fairly well balanced. It just did not stand out from most brews from the style out there which was rather unfortunate. Worth your time trying if you are a fan of the brew or have not had it before.

This one garners some pretty mixed reviews apparently, based on the huge discrepancy between Beer Advocate magazine's review and the overall rating. To me, that's a statistical anomaly that could suggest the Bros. got a bad bottle. Time to weigh in. I have been getting into Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel of late, snagging some singles, including this one featuring some pretty wicked artwork on the bottle. Poured into an American pint glass, this is an orange-amber brew with some brown tint like dark cloudy honey, no red to speak of, with around four inches of beige foam on top. Aroma is dank, weedy, fruity, toasty but in a mellow sense, and piney. Smells like an American IPA all right, a pleasing caramel malt sweetness coupled with a coarse green medicinal bitterness like rank pine sap and old citrus rinds. The taste hits these elements as well although the smell was much more sweet. The palate is weighted towards the bitter and spicy elements, with considerable gooseberry or "gamey" tomato leaf character from aggressive hopping, lemon/lime and orange rinds, pine sap and twigs, and a tea bag tannic astringency that I generally find pleasant but rather too dominant here. The malts are rich as well, adding some honey, toasted grain, and plum notes that manage to compete successfully with the hop onslaught. Persistent bitter finish includes an earthy spice like dry autumn leaves and white pepper. The hops are bitter and spicy, the malts are toasty, and the body is semi-chewy with the beer going down reasonably smooth. This one has some English IPA features, to be sure, but the hops taste like a hybrid. There's certainly some classic American hop character to go along with the earthy and spicy tastes. The final verdict? It is indeed rather coarse and aggressive, with hops and malts doing battle at times rather than playing nice to yield an integrated taste. I enjoyed the spicy bitterness and catty flavors to a point. Weaker than this brewery's other offerings.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A - Poured brown with a small off-white head.
S - Faint malts and hops
T - little bitterness and carmel malts,
M - Medium body and moderate carbonation.
O - I think its confused. It says its a classic English IPA and then states that its very much in the style of the American IPA. Judging it against the style it is not well done.
