MunBro (337) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
Aroma is citrusy and hoppy. Very nice, unique flavor profile. A great IPA with the unique flavors of kumquats which are kind of funky in a good way.

Aroma is a very fresh grapefruit, passionfruit, orange, and kumquat. Taste is a pleasant light sweet maltiness followed by a slightly bitter tanginess. The rich sweet body only lasts for fractions of a second and is transitioned to a smooth bitterness that finishes exceptionally smoothly. Head is a thin bubbly pearl head that retains fairly well.

HippyHop (88) - CANADA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours a cloudy, orangey gold with a bit of lacing. Nose is orange, tropical fruit, notably the kumquat, a bit of pine. Taste is very nice sweetness from the malt, and presumably the kumquats, with a finish that’s just this side of dry. This beer lingers really nicely. And man does this brewery make some great beer.

manuelMTL (53) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a hazy golden orange with a bubbly head. Citrusy, orange aroma. Some sweetness too. On the tongue it’s very fruity (almost like candy) with a light bitter aftertaste. Great mouth feel! Another great beer from Dieu due Ciel!

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Slender honeyed malts are basking in tropical fruit before resinous hops seal this smooth, velvety Fruited IPA creation.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the shiny blond haze. Sun shining through morning mist.
-The kumquats and hops are perfectly harmonious.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-Resinous bitterness is moderate but just.

On tap at the brewpub.

Botte thanks to Pierre. Pours orange gold white head. Nose and taste of sliced kumquat, lime, sticky orange peel, resin and caramel malt. Medium body.

Lagerboy (1217) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
341 ml bottle courtesy of The Great Randino. Opaque yellowish orange, firm white foam settles and lasts. Grapefruity hoppy aroma. Taste is mostly floral grapefruity hop, some tangerine and mild pale malt, no bitterness. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Very nice. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

341ml bottle in Dieu Du Ciel tulip. cloudy yellow but slightly orange with a gorgeous, thick creamy head leaving rings of lacing with each sip. a swirl of the glass reveals a citrus dominated aroma. grapefruit and orange peel. i can taste the Kumquats in the beginning, but it finishes off with intense hop bitterness. i really like the mouthfeel of this one. it’s full bodied and thick, not overly carbonated, heavy for its ABV. Another beautiful beer by the guys at DDC, enjoy this one out in the sun.

Pours cloudy straw yellow and frothy white top. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit and pine hops. Taste is dry, citrus and grapefruit hop bitterness. Well balanced but it’s amazing how it just dries out the palate.
