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.

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.

This beer is a hazy amber color. It has a modest white head. The aroma is clean and fresh, with lots of floral hops and pale malt scents. Soft, sweet, and just a little bitter. The hop taste is very well balanced. Both flavors have a commendable strength. Full in body. A solid beer.

Dark amber copper color with a one finger head with low retention, but leaving laces.
Nice aroma of grapefruits and pine with sweet toasted malt notes.
Bitter and fruity flavor with notes of grapefruits, tangerines, tea bags and pine. Toasted and caramel malts are very much present, as well. Finishes with spices. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation, slightly effervescent and sticky. Wheat gave it some roundness to it.
An IPA bold in malt and hops, but not over exaggerating it, maybe a bit too sweet, more at a DIPA level.

Pours a rather unappealing brown with little to no head and sweet malty aroma. The beer is trying to be an english IPA with a west coast style bitterness and failing at it. An unrefined bitterness is paired with an overly sweet malt character and strong fruity overtone of figs or plumb. The mouthfeel is watery with a light but abrasive carbonation. This is a beer that does not become more appreciable as it warms and really tastes like a home brew. The best part about this beer is the awesome artwork of a casual devil drinking a foamy brew out of a horn.
