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.

Hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma has dank, vegetal hops. Taste starts fruity and slightly sweet and gets bitter with grapefruit flavor in the finish. Body is soft but also has enough carbonation to make it drinkable. Aftertaste is dry and bitter. Well done IPA but nothing really special.

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.
