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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light orange pour with a white head. Flavor is fruity and malty up front followed by a light hop presence. Belgian style IPA in my opinion. A bit too much malt and the hops arenít fresh tasting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. A very good bitterness, a double pale. Well malted, just in case. Nice citrus flavour comes through just fine, there is a good mouthfeel. Foamy mouthfeel, carbonation and temperature just right.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle...RBSG2005... Lightly hazy, deep amber ale with a large, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. Floral, citrusy nose delivers plenty of grapefruit with lesser notes of wildflowers and caramel. The flavor has better balance than most IIPAs with plenty of caramel and sweetened black tea to temper the intense grapefruit, floral stems, peach and mandarin orange. Medium to full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Finishes a touch alcoholic and dry. Excellent and different. Maybe an English style IIPA?

Bottle @ Mattís 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 itís fucked now.
