Amber with a fine white head. Mild grassy hop aromas with hints of brown sugar. Medium body, lots of caramel malts in there, sweet,hops is always second in this brew that finishes overly sweet for the style. A bit sticky, with hints of metal in the mouthfeel. I want more hops in there!!!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden orange pour with small off white head. Aroma of caramel, pine, floral hops and orange. Taste of caramel, honey, toffee, orange peel, and a hop presence. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation. Very sweet which masks the bitter hop finish. Very enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours clear golden orange with tiny dappled head. Aroma of resin, tangerine, wood varnish, floral, grass. Flavour is very similar with lots of candy sweetness. Medium bodied, way too sweet. Cloying and boozy.

341mL bottle, pours a pretty clear copper orange with a small white head. Aroma is full of floral hops, a bit of grassy notes, backed by a generous portion of cracker / biscuity malt. Flavour is dominated by candied sugar, caramel malt sweetness, and finally some floral hops. Finishes semi-bitter and quite sweet, with some alcohol notes. Subpar for the style, and certainly for Dieu du Ciel.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Aaron! Pour is clear orange with fluffy white head, aroma has notes of old aged hops with biscuit, caramel, toffee, hints of grass and pine but more orange notes, finishing fairly sweet. Taste is sweet malts, orange, some caramel, finishing fairly sweet, slight bitterness but not much. Nice, but its old.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Matt’s house, courtesy of pushkinwow. Well, this has been on a Fedex truck for over three weeks, so it may be fucked. Fairly hazy, orangish appearance with an off white head. Pretty dull, a bit boozy, rich malty, moderate caramel, light citrusy aroma. Fairly dull hoppy, toasty malty, light caramel, earthy, floral flavor. Too bad but it’s fucked now.

A very good IIPA. It shows the herbal caracteristics of the hops. Very interesting to taste. The bitterness is rash, but not extreme because of the malt presence. Very well balanced!

Très belle bière cuivrée coiffée d’une sublime mousse fine et persistante laissant une belle dentelle. Le lendemain lorsque je me sert une autre Chaman, aucune mousse n’est au rendez-vous. L’odeur est doucement houblonnée et fleurie et des herbes fraîches viennent s’ajouter aux senteurs. Un goût fidèle aux arômes ayant un pétillement civilisé en bouche et un arrière-goût composé d’une subtil amertume. L’alcool vient faire boiter l’ensemble, sinon l’équilibre serait à point.
