4.75/5  rDev +11%

341ml bottle, 6.9%ABV, American IPA

Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a finger or two of off white, slightly lumpy head. I can see some yeast bits floating around the bottom which is always a plus for me. Not much retention, but nice rings / island formation of lacing.

N: Tropical & citrus hops, really floral & elegant IPA smell, pretty dry. The tropical fruit aromas set this off and get you super excited to taste!

T: Absolutely delicious hop profile. More citrusy at first, but a papaya-like tropical fruit aftertaste. Very tasty GRAPEFRUIT bitterness that coats the mouth. A bit of bready malt, but this is a good IPA for hop lovers, not an aggressive bitterness, but delicious hop flavors.

M: Medium bodied, a bit of chewiness. Just under medium carbonation, very smooth.

O: A delicious, sessionable IPA, my favorite IPA from dieu du ciel. Much better than their belgian style IPA. This goes down dangerously easy. Delicious beer to be picked up more than once!!

Picked up at Broue Ha Ha in Gatineau Qc. The guy in line behind me said "Do you like grapefruit juice"? Sounded like a warning, but he then said it was one of his favourite beers. Have to admit, he's right. A definite flavour of grapefruit bitterness - would not hand this over to a friend learning to enjoy craft beer, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Dieu Du Ciel "Moralité"
$5.22 Canadian for a 12 oz. tulip glass on tap @ Bier Markt, Montreal, QC

Notes: Hazy amber body. 1 finger thick head of frothy/creamy white. Drops but holds a surface covering. Retention is good. Leaves craggy streaks of lacing behind. Aroma: pungent, floral, tropical, piney, and gently caramelish. Flavor follows. Floral notes stand out over the citrus and pine - that's surprising; nicely done. Really well balanced, and not laden with malt and bitterness; not thin or lacking in any way either. Direct. Focused. Very drinkable, and yet almost enjoyable just for the nose. One of the best beers I've tasted in Canada; and possibly one of the best from Dieu Du Ciel.

Smell of fruity hops, very exotic.
Mouthfeel is like a party. Citrus, tangerin, pine, hops.
Bitterness is long, bitter and tasty

Good starting head that settles slowly to a single layer of bubbles. Good blanket to spotty lace. Cloudy gold color.

Initially, I detected some earthy smells, but I no longer can detect them. The aroma is fresh and has a grapefruit element to it.

Astringent finish to this beer--just straight bitterness. Light malt up front but it succumbs quickly. Good body and carbonation.

Pours amber with a large lasting head.
Noes shows pear, apple, spicy hops and a little light malt.
Flavours include more pear and soft malt, a metallic note and honey. A little abrasive.
Carbonation is a bit over the top.

The beer pours out in a light yellow orange.

The aroma hits of big floral and grapefruit. A bit of biscuity malt. Smells very much like West Coast examples like Racer and Sculpin.

The flavor follows with a big pop of that floral hops, onto grapefruit sweetness, and bitterness on the finish. The beer continues of that bright floral theme, with a light balanced bready malt.

A really good attempt that compares to American West Coast IPAs. Easily the best hoppy beer I've had from DDC.
