Six packs of this have recently re-appeared in Alberta and I snagged a couple ASAP. For the foreseeable future this is probably as close to anything from the Alchemist as we are likely to see here, a collaboration with the typically excellent Dieu Du Ciel that one can maybe imagine captures at least a little of the magic of the vaunted Heady Topper. A hazy bright yellow hue with a decent amount of creamy whitish head, the aroma meets one's expectations handily, a whole ton of mixed citrus (grapefruit, orange, lemon, lime), pineapple, passion fruit, and something sweeter like gummy candy or dried mango perhaps, although this sweetness really does not carry over much onto the palate. Smells super fruity but notable in its almost woody tannic dryness, although one certainly gets a decent dose of citrus flavor, particularly blood orange, tangerine, and lime. The aggressive hopping regime also offers up some toasted onion notes although these only add to the experience. Initially it was difficult to taste the malts but over time a little toast and light molasses emerge. Still remarkably dry from start to finish, which lets the hop flavors truly shine. Brilliant. A little pear emerging late. Medium bodied and well-carbonated. Glad I got 11 more of these to savor. Obviously one to consume in a timely fashion. A top three Canadian IPA choice for me, and the best bet for dry but vibrant citrus and tropical flavors. (1,429 characters)

12oz chalice at Beer Revolution Oliver - nice to get a heads-up from a fellow beer nerd that this is available here, when I'm already on the way! Alchemist in Alberta (sort of)!

This beer appears a rather hazy, medium golden amber hue, with one skinny finger of puffy, bubbly, and weakly foamy dirty white head, which leaves some distant active storm cloud lace around the glass as it duly recedes.

It smells of fresh-squeezed grapefruit zest, orange cream, pine resin, and bready caramel malt - simple, but in the simply awesome sense. The taste is a veritable Save-on Foods produce aisle orgasm of lemon, orange, and grapefruit rind, grainy, biscuity caramel malt, a further hint of toffee candy sweetness, wet leafy pine needles, a mild stoney flintiness, and smashed and smushed earthy, perfumed hops.

The carbonation is sort of laid-back, and earns a participatory sticker for little more, the body a sturdy medium weight, and actually smooth amongst all that swirling fresh hop (and patently welcome, let's be clear) astringency. It finishes off-dry, barely, as the grainy caramel malt keeps a stiff upper lip in the presence of such a heady, topped-up (I couldn't resist) green hoppiness, booyah!

Like the little brother of you-know-who, what with all the hop character one could ever expect. A wee bit toned down, sure, but I would have hardly known if I hadn't enjoyed Big Bro a mere few months ago. Awesome on tap, and a bit too expensive for the native brewery's offerings, so I'm ever so keen on seeing this stuff in the standard DDC 4-packs in the near future. (1,577 characters)

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. (695 characters)

A fantastic American style IPA brewed from our Quebec friends. One of my favourite beers as of late. A hoppy tangerine and grapefruit kick, but not over the top. A balanced brew with the right amount of carbonation; present, but not powerful. This is great stuff. (267 characters)
