3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Strong floral and citrus hops, with a bit of liquor. Clear golden amber with a rich thick head. Taste is surprisingly sweet, almost sickeningly so. Hop taste is there but bitterness is actually masked by the caramel and malt sweetness. Rich on the palate, and of course as is normal for a Dieu du Ciel a yeasty/liquor taste in the finish. Too sweet for me, but a great way to get people into a floral IPA.

341 ml bottle. Pours a clear orangeish amber with a nice white head. Smells like hops and citrus. Tastes like toffee, malt, cereals and a hint of alcohol. Solid hoppy punch in the finish, notes of citrus. Medium, oily body. Top notch pale ale!

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
