From a 11.5 oz bottle. Pours a murky amber with an off white head. Toffee and floral hop aroma. Surprisingly sweet malt flavors for an IPA. Hops are pretty subdued for the style.

Aroma is mostly citrus notes, lots of floral hops. Flavour is bitter, some very concentrated pinapple taste which took the foreground. Medium carbonation and body. Nice, though a little uni-dimensional.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
341ml bottle served in a tulip glass.
A: First of all, perfect beer art. Dieu du Ciel makes, IMHO, the most beautiful beer labels ever! Pours a dark amber clear color forming a medium, creamy and beige head. Medium to low retention and lots of lacings left
S: Very sweet caramel in the nose. Candy sugar and flowery and pine hops. Fruity with notes of pineapple and grapefruit
T: Follows the nose. A slightly sweet upfront with strong notes of caramel malts and toffee. Nice yeasts which are somehow, a bit Belgian. Hoppy bitterness is, however, quite stingy and dry. Good bitterness. Again, an American IPA with a little touch of Belgian IPA
M: Absolutely smooth in the mouth, a strong quality of Dieu du Ciel. Medium body and carbonation with a persistent caramel malts and piny hoppy aftertaste
O: Excellent drinkability. Great American/Belgian/Canadian IPA :)

Really interesting beer, looks like a half of British style IPA, and has some malt on the aroma, but then the hops push everything else aside, in US style IPA finish. The extra malt influence gives a lovely thick mouthfeel . This is a brewery to watch, clever beer geeks they are!

Guest draft at BrewDog, Birmingham. Dark IPA with plenty of flavour - bitter hops and malty grapefruit - and a long finish. I’d never heard of this brewery until tonight but now I’ve had two excellent ones.

LOTS of pine and grass in the aroma. thick, dark (for the style) body...not really pale per se. good flavor (more pine) not quite as delectable as the aroma, but well balanced."

taster on tap @ Ei8ht Ball / Bellevue KY --- Clear dark amber with a thin rim head, isolated dots of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds bittering deep in the palate, moving deftly to a well-balanced finish. So simple, yet so satisfying. A solid brew from 8-Ball.
