ARH (976) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2015
On nitro, poured into a nonic pint. Mellow and muted aromas of warm nuts and toffee waif through with a hint of citrus zest. The hazy brown amber beer sits beneath a thick, dense tan blanket of creamy head that retains most of it by the end, and leaves a coating of lace on the glass. The taste starts with a smooth medium sweet but is overtaken by a medium bitter before the glass is empty. It’s oily and smooth with a creamy carbonation and a medium body with smooth caramel, mild bread toast, and a light spiced, bitter marmalade. The waxy finish has a crisp touch to it followed by a spiced, pumpernickel bread character that leans towards mellow, bitter marmalade and nuts in the aftertaste.

Lorsque le nuage de mousse disparaît, on entrevoit une bière cuivrée assez claire et une dentelle collante sur les parois du verre. Des houblons herbacés et légèrement terreux rejoignent des arômes de caramel brûlé pour former un bouquet plus typique d’une IPA à l’anglaise. En bouche, les clins d’oeil à la version anglaise d’une IPA se confirment : amertume soutenue mais pas agressive, caramel brûlé, céréales rôties, un peu fruitée. Tout ça dans une texture super soyeuse et crémeuse. Agréable.

Westchesterco (1547) - mclean, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2015
On draft at the brewery it is cloudy amber color with a frothy ecru head. The aroma is indistinguishable and the taste is bitter with hints of citrus and burnt toast finishes with the same bitterness.

Draught in St Jerome. Elegant dark body with large creamy head. Silky mouthfeel dominated by roasted malt and rich piney hops, minty dry finish. Not really my style but very well done.and interesting slow drink.

mansquito (4480) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Dieu du Ciel, Montreal tap: Pours nitro with a cascading light brown body forming a nice and creamy head. Aroma is somewhat hoppy, but the maltiness stands out the most. Taste is on the sweet and malty side, but with a hoppy undertone. This is a malty beer first and brings in the IPA element second in my opinion. Good, but I am glad I just sampled my friend’s.

Lukaduke (2793) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a hazy golden color with a finger of sudsy white foam. Nice round creamy mouthfeel, rustic grain, citrus peel, floral hay and a lingering bitterness that works nicely with the full round creamy mouthfeel !

Appearance is coppery rust with a thick, slightly off-white head. Aromas are subdued citrus and caramel. Very creamy mouth feel. Tastes of caramel malts and light fruit although not really in the citrus realm. Overall I like it but in the lower echelon of beers from this brewer.
