4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark, hazy caramel brown with a medium-sized light beige head. Smells strongly of sweet caramel with some earthy, wet grass smelling hops. Taste is bitter with some underlying sweetness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and active mouth-carbonation, Dieu du Ciel Corne du Diable finishes with a lingering bitterness that is both sharp and smooth.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A first-rate IPA. A superb balance similar to a Great Divide Hercules Double IPA. Great maltiness with a slight sweetness and hint and of chocolate. Impeccable malt-hop balance as well.

Oklar rosa-orange öl med litet vitt skum. Doft: Äpplen, jord, citrus, barr, även lätt doft av kavring typ. Smak: Rostat bröd, barr, citrus, mineraler, mörk gräddat knäckebröd. Tänk om man skulle ha en hel back såna här under sommaren, mumma.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: The aromas are sweet, somewhat citric but mainly floral, pine, resin and wet grass.
Appearance: The color is dark amber, a nice hazy tone, an off-white head that leaves some lacing and good curtains.
Taste: The taste delivers initially a deep toffee and brown bread sweetness, then citric flavors, lemon and bitter orange, and of course lots of bitterness that stays around.
Palate: Medium carbonation, soft, a good body and a good dry finish.
Overall: A nice IPA, somewhere between the British and American variants.
Note: Bottle 341 ml. Reviewed 2013-02-22.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear copper pour with a medium creamy off-white head leaving some sticky lacing. Quickly recedes into a thin ring around the glass. Aroma of resinous pine, herbal/floral notes, grapefruit pith/rind and some notes of sticky toffee sweetness. Hop forward taste, but also quite fruity and sweet, though not overly so. Well balanced. Notes of grapefruit, dried apricots, earthy yeast and more resinous piney bitterness. Somewhat thick mouthfeel with an oily, bitter finish. A great IPA; will buy again for sure.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy (cold haze) copper with a small white head. Pine, resin, caramel dominates with some hoppy citrus and dried fruit notes. Mild bitterness balance the raisin/caramel sweetness. Would like some more fruity hop in my IPA but I guess four months on bottle takes it’s toll.
