Hazy amber. Thin bubbly head. Aroma is toasty, with lots of caramel and toasty malt. Quite hoppy with woody notes and light citrus. Still a fair amount of malt coming through, mostly with a toasty bent. Lubiere (13905) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2012
A golden amber ale with a thick frothy lacing mocha head. In aroma, a smooth nutty caramel with herbaceous notes, and light British hops. In mouth, crisp caramel malt with grassy herbal British hops, light floral notes, lingering bitterness, nice. On tap at brewpub, Feb. 24 2012. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 21, 2012
@Mondial de la Bière 2012, Montreal - cloudy copper-amber beer under a long lasting beige foam; shows a strong flowery hoppiness with notes of wood and almonds; quite full-bodied; assertive; fairly bitter and slightly astringent; long flowery hoppy finish; quite dry and with lingering fruity tones too Sammy (12201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2012
Bang on pale ale, enjoyed on tap at DDC. Smooth orange citrus. Medium brown coloured body with lots of lace. Neutral aroma. Very good drinkability. Medium mouthfeel, very smooth. j12601 (11831) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2012
On tap at Dieu du Ciel prior to our trip to the ice cider Mondial. Pours a clear pale amber with a thin white head. Toast, chewy malt, and big earth on the nose. Earthy and chewy with sweet malt notes. Hops, caramel, a touch of nutty malt. Long smooth earthy malt.

2012-06-07. Dark amber, small beige head. 3+ First sniff of the aroma has a ton of hops, the second less so. Interesting hop profile, sort of leafy/cannabis like character to it. Modest bitterness in the flavour, more of the leafy cannabis like green hops as in the aroma. Average plus palate. 3+ Okay, a decent IPA but the leafy green hop character is not to my own tastes.

My Bottom Line:mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2012
Toasted malts and spicy hoppiness fuse from aroma to finish, as citrusy hints and wooden bitterness complete this well-sculpted Pale Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the clear copper.
-Aromatically-speaking, this is not necessarily reminiscent of an APA.
-Like in most DDC beers, the mouthfeel is as polished and cushy as can be. Definitely one of their strengths.
-Malts contribute as much as the hops flavor-wise.
-I was expecting more hop fruitiness because the board said ’American Pale Ale’.
On tap at the brewpub.
[4449-20120607] Tap. Woody orange stem hops aroma has a kick of smoked floral wood. Hazy, brown amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Muted citrus peel wooden hops flavour has a bitter wood aftertaste. Medium-full body. Quite a tasty bitter. (8/3+/8/4/17) 4.0

on tap on the premises. hazy golden with a very nice creamy white head offering good retention and lacing. spicy citrus, earthy berries, toasted caramel maltiness, sweetish coffee grinds, C hops, clean yeast action, salt. moderate carbonation, light body, almost balanced grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. average american pale ale at best - far from ddc’s standards, although there is a corne du diable aura in a lighter body. o-k. solidfunk (8949) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Decent well-balanced pale ale. Pours cloudy amber with good head and lacing. Slight sea of citrus and lots of malt here. Average carbonation. Finishes a bittersweet. Tap at barhop.
