BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!
Quebec, Canada
dieuduciel.com

Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The concept of Morality is perhaps a subjective one, as the history of alcohol in Quebec may demonstrate. This IPA is brewed with a dare-we-say excessive quantity of Simcoe, Citra and Centennial hops. The dry finish is highly aromatic and slightly resinous, invoking tropical fruits atop dominant hop bitterness.

Moralité was crafted at our Montreal location in 2012 in collaboration with John Kimmich of The Alchemist brewery in Vermont, USA.

L: Hazy golden orange with some floaties. Nice sticky white head with very good retention, and sheets of lacing.

S: Caramel, toffee, toasted bread, pink grapefruit, overripe mango, candied orange peel.

T: Pops of lemon and lime sherbet upfront, orange creamsicle, pink grapefruit with some grapefruit peel zest and bitterness. Caramel and brown sugar candy sweetness in the middle, with a nice toasted brown bread malt backbone. Some pine and hint of pineapple, with a lingering, moderately bitter grapefruity finish.

F: Medium, well carbonated, slick with hop oils, creamy and resinous on the finish. Lightly sweet, but nicely balanced with bitterness.

O: A solid IPA. Not amazing, but decent all around. It reminds me a lot of Two Hearted Ale.

Montréal July 2018. Hazy gold with a modest head. Strong citrus hop nose with a hint of pine. Medium malt body balances the resinous finish. Great crispness. A very good IPA.

6er 12oz bottles for $14.29. Yikes.
(As with all Quebec beers, the label is serious & "fantastic"....it's beer, not the elixir of Thor. Jeez.
A very, very good IPA. One of the best in Canada ---small praise, but praise nonetheless.
Main complaint is price....but that's the Canada booze reality.

From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Age. Citrusy and clean, with sweet and metallic notes and adequate bitterness. Not bad but fairly mediocre

So this is currently the highest rated IPA in Canada. A bit of an East coast classic.

Hazy deep gold in color with reasonable head but minimal lacing.

Nose is cirtrus rind, pine and spicy both hop and yeast spice.

The nose did not lie as the taste follows this profile with a light sweet maltiness making this very well balanced.

Hazy, deep gold Brew. Thick didn't head that leaves tons of lacing. Scent is citrus and pine with some sweetness. The taste is super fruity and delicious with a nice pine finish. On tap is the best way to enjoy this. What a great beer.

Pours straw yellow with stable off white head and good lacing. Aroma sweet fruitiness under a dominant but not overwhelming grapefruit. Flavours of toffee and dried fruit and the ever present grapefruity NA hop but more complex and layered than usual. Good mouthfeel.
