COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The light amber colour of this beer conceals an important cargo of hops. It’s light effervescence allows for the discrete fruity taste of the malt and the pronounced bitterness to be better appreciated. The aromas of fruits and hops spread over the palate and cast a spell over all who dare to taste this beer.

Very nice. A milder IPA, very tasty. Brown-ish amber colour. Round smooth bitterness from the restrained "hopping". Long finish of mild bitterness.

Lukaduke (2000) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Cask from source. Pours a hazy golden color with a trace of gaseous white bubbles. Pineapple, round cracker malts, floral grass... nice round mouthfeel with light carbonation and fresh hoppy backbone that ebbs and flows from front of the palate to back. Nice interesting IPA !

Cask @ DDC (Montréal). Clear golden/copper with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is light with citrus and light caramel and light pine. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with light citrus, caramel and pine. Slight bitter finish. Light to medium body. Low carbonation. Not so good. Almost no aromatic hops. Not sure it’s a good beer to put in cask.

Pinte à DDC (Montréal). Robe ambrée, collet mousseux blanc. IPA correcte, bonne amertume, mais moins complexe que la Corne du Diable, qui demeure la grosse IPA de DDC.

mcberko (5942) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
Rating #2800. On tap at Dieu du Ciel, pours a cloudy orangey red with a small off-white head. Aroma is very fruity, full of oranges and tropical fruits, with loads of citrusy hops. Flavour is quite bitter, with tropical fruits (mangos, pineapple), bitter grapefruit peel and just enough dry caramel malt. Very pungent and flavourful, especially given the 5% ABV. Excellent stuff!

AGAquino (658) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2012
From notes. Pours a nice golden orange with a slight tan head. Aroma of malts, slight spices and caramel. Noticeable alcohol, slight citrus and nice hop bitter.

Consommée directement chez Dieu du Ciel. En fut. Excellent bière goûteuse. Look caramélisé. Saveur de noix rôties.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2012
On tap at Dieu Du Ciel - 03/03/12. Hazy amber with a small white head. Malty, bready taste with a small amount of citrus. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Drinkable but didn’t do a lot for me!

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2012
The worst of the best I’ve had tonight. Just a decent, if not overly good IPA. Hoppy, bitter. Amber, cloudy colour. Half decent tracing. On tap at DDC.

glennmastrange (2208) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Tap. Moderate malt notes of roasted and pretzel-like breadiness, moderate flowers,perfume and orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with some faint spice and dark dried fruit in the background. Head is average to large, frothy, slightly off-white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy orange/red. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, creamy with a soft carbonation. Nothing too fabulous about this IPA but everything aspect about it blends well with each other.
