Bottle. Brewdog, Leeds. Hazy gold. Film of white head. Bready malt. Sweet, toffee malt. Some spicy fruit. Grassy, green hop. Orange juice. Orange zest. Taste is light, chewy bitter. Plenty of sweet. Full, smooth, but zesty palate. Finishes grassy, pithy, zesty bitter. Wasn’t sure, at first. But this is so drinkable, it had gone before I finished rating it. Really good.

andrew_drinks (116) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - NOV 20, 2014
Tap at BDCJ. Pale golden, little head. Sweet malt and marmalade on toast nose. Light carbonation. Medium citrus on the tongue, oranges, more marmalade... then an epic grapefruit rind bitterness, which I guess is from the kumquats. Finishes big and bitter and dry. Suffered from comparison with Moralite, but still very good.

330ml bottle, pours hazy orange gold with a white head, upfront fruity orange sweetness, bready and wheaty malt with some bitterness coming through at the end. Full bodied with an oily texture, medium sweet and fruity. Carbonation is soft. Lovely IPA

At Cask Days 2014. Lovely juicy mandarin flavor supported by pine and citrus hops, caramel malt, gentle bitter finish. Nice balance of sweet/bitter/acidic notes, smooth and refreshing fruity IPA.

Hidden_Pooch (409) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
So I know now that Dieu du Ciel really know their ABC’s of IPAs. Pours a hazy light amber with a small white head. Aroma is of pine, citrus, and tropical fruits. Tastes of pine, citrus, and I assume kumquats, which gives it a unique flavour I am not use to. Has a medium body with lively carbonation and is very chewy and refreshing.

The kumquats add a sweet note to this ipa, but they damp down the hop aromas and flavour.

jerd16 (221) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Pours golden with small white head Aroma is yeasty (bready), light citrus, urine Some citrus initially on palate. Nothing distinct. Then overwhelming floral, yeasty flavors. It reminds me a little of Brewfist beers (I have an inkling saaz or noble hops are in here somewhere). Strange bitterness. I was expecting a juicy IPA, not a bready, floral mishmash.

Fashawn (192) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 6, 2014
Ancora una splendida birra dal Canada. Color oro, schiuma bianca bella densa, omogenea e aderente. Persistente il giusto. Aromi di lievito, sorprende per essere una IPA. Si sente grano e biscotti al burro. Poi però tanto mandarino, qualche frutto caramellato, un po’ di pepe e il finale è resinoso. Anche qualche bacca bianca. In bocca la corrispondenza è fenomenale. L’equilibrio regna sovrano, e allora caramello, bacche, mandarini, e finale amarognolo alla resina. Ottima esecuzione, carbonatazione nella media, corpo rotondissimo ma beverina grazie ad una consistenza quasi setosa. Gran birra. W il Canada alcolico.

teorn88 (3064) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2014
12oz bottle from BD Camden, London. It pours a hazy yellwo color with a medium white head. Taste is fresh hops, mostly on the grassy fruity side, with notes of grapefruit and mandarin. Taste is medium bitter and medium sweet with hoppy notes of grass and grapefruit and some more ripe apricots flavours. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, good IPA, not a whole lot of kumquats.
