MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Toasted malts and spicy hoppiness fuse from aroma to finish, as citrusy hints and wooden bitterness complete this well-sculpted Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the clear copper.
-Aromatically-speaking, this is not necessarily reminiscent of an APA.
-Like in most DDC beers, the mouthfeel is as polished and cushy as can be. Definitely one of their strengths.
-Malts contribute as much as the hops flavor-wise.
-I was expecting more hop fruitiness because the board said ’American Pale Ale’.

On tap at the brewpub.

Spab (2243) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
On tap at Wvrst. Pours a hazy orange brown with moderate-sized off-white head. Aroma is citrus and caramel. Flavour is juicy citric hops, caramel and bread. Sharp bitterness in finish. Fine but active carbonation. Nice.

neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
On tap at the Dieu du Ciel tap takeover at WVRST in Toronto, served in a tulip. Pours hazy reddish amber with a moderate off-white head that remains. The nose has big notes of hops, grapefruit, citrus and pine, along with caramel and toasty malts. The flavour is medium bitter but also slightly sweet, with an American IPA hop bouquet, citric but also slightly peppery. The finish is long and hoppy with a peppery note and a hint of medium toasted malts. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice American IPA with spicy hops and a spicy finish. Not the most interesting brew, but well made. 2012-06-19

In short: A generously dry-hopped golden IPA. Me love hop juice
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear burnt golden body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is very hoppy aromatic with a fresh and vibrant explosion of leafy and floral hops. There are the usual citrus and piney notes too but mainly the hop aroma is a big bouquet of juicy floral hops. Taste has plenty of toasted oily cereals, smooth liquefied caramel, fresh citrus fruits juice. Generously hopped by APA standards with resinous wooden, floral and citrusy hops. There is a lot of hops juice in there, this beer was certainly generously dry-hopped. Taste-wise this is more an IPA than an APA and that’s totally ok with me. I could drink pints and pints of this beer and then wake up the day after with a weird woman in my bed. Same as when I stay sober. My wife is weird.

Tasty brisk and bracing IPA. Light orange colour, not much head. Citrus hops are the main story here, outmuscling the solid malt backbone.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
Draught at Mondial de la Bière 2012, June 7. Pours a cloudy copper with a spare diminishing frothy tan head. Good hoppy aroma with catty & spicy hops, backed by caramel malt. Flavour is bitter and quite hoppy, again with malt in the back. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur dorée-cuivrée et voilée. Nez de houblon citrique, herbeux, légèrement fruité (agrume, notes de mangues, traces d’abricots) et aux notes florales et résineuses, moyen de caramel aux notes rôties et terreuses avec des traces de biscuits. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Goût moyennement amer de houblon citrique, légèrement fruité (agrume, notes de mangues, traces d’abricots) aux notes florales et résineuses (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de céréales légèrement sucrées et aux petites notes rôties avec un moyen-léger goût de caramel terreux ainsi que des notes de pain puis en finale l’amertume revient en premier plan en se faisant légèrement asséchante, un peu plus herbeuse et résineuse. Post-goût long et légèrement sec, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux aux notes florales, résineuses et citriques avec un léger goût fruitée (zeste d’agrumes). (10 mars 2013)

Un verre à Montréal. Une robe cuivrée sur laquelle flotte une petite tête mousseuse. Une large dentelle. Un nez qui permet à des aiguilles de pin et à des fleurs d’être touchées par un malt caramel qui semble bien connaître son rôle. Des saveurs qui s’expriment de la même manière. Je cherche la grande traversée des agrumes et je ne la trouve pas. En bouche, le liquide est bien construit. Dieu du Ciel ne déçoit jamais sur cet aspect. Le pétillement est bien ajusté. La texture me semble être crémeuse. La finale propulse une amertume qui réveille ma langue. Quelque chose de bien dosé.
