UPDATED: JUL 10, 2012 Hazy and orange colour. Very hoppy in a fruit loop sort of way. It also has a soft cereal note as well. Very hoppy flavour with pronounced fruit juice notes and a dry hopped bitterness. It has a alot of heat, light on the malts, not too heavy on the citrus hops but still a very tasty brew.

Color is deep cloudy orange. Aroma is thick caramel and sweet honey. Flavor is light but Mouthfeel is thick. Earthy holiness, mellow, but dry. Mouthfeel is thick and a little bit of a caustic. Ferris (15268) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle - Strong floral and citrus hops, with a bit of liquor. Clear golden amber with a rich thick head. Taste is surprisingly sweet, almost sickeningly so. Hop taste is there but bitterness is actually masked by the caramel and malt sweetness. Rich on the palate, and of course as is normal for a Dieu du Ciel a yeasty/liquor taste in the finish. Too sweet for me, but a great way to get people into a floral IPA. VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear orangeish amber with a nice white head. Smells like hops and citrus. Tastes like toffee, malt, cereals and a hint of alcohol. Solid hoppy punch in the finish, notes of citrus. Medium, oily body. Top notch pale ale!

Amber with a fine white head. Mild grassy hop aromas with hints of brown sugar. Medium body, lots of caramel malts in there, sweet,hops is always second in this brew that finishes overly sweet for the style. A bit sticky, with hints of metal in the mouthfeel. I want more hops in there!!! jredmond (8284) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Draft with Andrew poured at the Festival, MA. Pours a clear, golden body with small white lacing. Aroma is fruity malts, grass, light floral character and some spice. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet, fruity hops, grass, sweet malt backbone and a nice bitter presence. maley1 (1273) - Calgary, CANADA - JUN 23, 2012
Clear golden orange pour with small off white head. Aroma of caramel, pine, floral hops and orange. Taste of caramel, honey, toffee, orange peel, and a hop presence. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation. Very sweet which masks the bitter hop finish. Very enjoyable. Matts_Property (837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear golden orange with tiny dappled head. Aroma of resin, tangerine, wood varnish, floral, grass. Flavour is very similar with lots of candy sweetness. Medium bodied, way too sweet. Cloying and boozy. mcberko (17823) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2012
341mL bottle, pours a pretty clear copper orange with a small white head. Aroma is full of floral hops, a bit of grassy notes, backed by a generous portion of cracker / biscuity malt. Flavour is dominated by candied sugar, caramel malt sweetness, and finally some floral hops. Finishes semi-bitter and quite sweet, with some alcohol notes. Subpar for the style, and certainly for Dieu du Ciel.
