look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

A: Big, off-white head, sudsy and persistent; hazy golden copper color, nice lacing.

S: A big hoppy nose, lots of sweet citrus and grapefruit with a some tropical fruit notes with a bit of barny/grassy notes.

T: The taste is a bit drier than the nose, the grapefruit zest dominates here with some pine and a massive wack of bittering hops making a great dry hop backbone; definitely a raw grassy note on the finish that pairs well with the dry bittering hops. The finish is dry and long!

M: Nice carbonation and medium body, smooth and round.

O: This IPA has a nice balance to it but still gives an aggressive hop smack in the mouth!

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.

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.

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.

Purchased at the LCBO for $12.00 for a 4pk of 341ml bottles. Served at 4deg C in a tulip.

A- Opens well and pours a tiny head that is gone in seconds. Medium gold color and unfiltered

S- Lots of hops here. Smells like Chinook. Good malt

T- Oodles of hops. Like a Chinook/Citra based blend. Not much Citra but you can tell it's there for sure.

M- Typical APA beer. Nice

O- Pretty good. Glad I grabbed a couple of 4pks for the future.

Food Pairing

This pretty good brew went well with..... Crepes. Strawberry and whipped creamy good

Enjoy

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.
