3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
murky and hazed red bright brown body. dirty flower petals. lasting thick bubbled head that is all white. just a touch of lemon in the nosetastes like my uncle jesse’s front porch smelled when i was a kid . dusty with the wind bringing the scent of the pines and the honeysuckle hanging from the fence line, but under it all dirt, oil, sweat, clay and old wood of everything because everything around there was old even back then the smell of the metal that was always around from the poles holding up the roof to cemtn . the berry patch that grew to the south by the pear tree and at the edge of the property the grape vines that grew fat & so dark that they seemed black all this with the constant sound of a motor somewhere. the wind, the creak of the trees and the constant distant voices just beyond understanding that came from all the other family houses just on the edge. damn. i ramble when i drink sometimes. decent beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium sized light tan head with very good retention and plenty of sticky lace. Hazy, orange/copper hued brew. Nose is lightly floral and citrusy with a big toasty malt backing. Body is med/full with a nice carbonation, lightly resiny, clean on the palate. Plenty of hop flavor, light pine, grapefruit, bubblegum and a light earthiness. Malts back and balance out the hops really well, nicely toasty, lightly chewy, fairly dry. Dry, hoppy finish, solid bite. A very nice IPA indeed but at $5 a 12ozer. i,m not sure how many times i,ll be able/want to enjoy it? Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

Another good beer shared by the infamous Roberto! Real bitter for an IPA, grassy that is for sure. Bottle poured a hazy amber. Classic IPA smell and taste. As I said it was grassy bitter. Medium texture, another good brew by Dieu du Ciel! Thanks to robert for sharing!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. twist off bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a hazy amber color, with a sticky tan colored head.
Aromas are strictly high alpha American hops. Some malts try to break thru, but not much luck there.
Flavors are mostly American hops, with a weak, watery malt backbone.
Burning alcohol in the mouthfeel. Not balanced by any means.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of fishingnet. Pours copper with tan head. The aroma has semi sweet roasty malts with a bit of sticky chewy-ness and pine hops. The taste starts tart moving into full boil pine hop bitterness. Yum. It then becomes more and more roasty as the malts well up creating a malty roasty finish to nearly equal the intensity of the pine hops.
