This beer style was created in the late 1990’s by some breweries on the west coast of the United States, and most notably by Rogue. It’s an extreme version of the American IPA. It’s a beer with strong amber hues and dominating hop flavours and tastes. It is however well balanced through the presence of a combination of malts. This beer is usually dry hopped, a tradition that is adhered to by Dieu du Ciel!. The bouquet of the beer consists of floral hops. In the mouth, the bitterness is quite strong, without being extreme, and the alcohol makes its presence known, without being domineering. The aftertaste is dry and less syrupy than a barley wine. Thus, it is a very complex and bitter beer, but always well balanced.

Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Nose of peaches, grapes, a bit of caramel, pines and alcool. Sweet taste at first then you get the long alcool finish. Medium to light body. Light carbonation. A bit disapointed with this one. Nothing special.

Bière difficile d'approche, peut être trop agressive, se laisse apprécier après une bonne demi-bouteille.

Bottle. Cloudy pale orange pour with a white head. Aroma is a bit herbal with some tropical fruit. Flavour is herbal and grassy with some sweet tropical fruit. Decently balanced but an odd mixture of flavour.

Really great double ipa. Pours a light orange. Aromas of citrus rind and booze. Lots of God stuff going on in the mouth. Citrus, honey malts, booze. Really smooth. Great stuff.

Beautiful orange body, white lasting head, nice lacing. Citrus, dried fruit, molasses, caramel aroma. Taste is rich sweet malty, a touch of hoppy bitterness, juicy citrus fruit. Coating mouthfeel. Pretty great beer.

Pour is orangey gold with a teeny tiny white cap. Nose is surprisingly faint. I tried a year-old bottle of this, and then shortly thereafter a month-old bottle, and while it’s definitely better fresh, it’s still lacking some hop punch. Still, I get piney/floral hops, light citrus and soap, caramel and earth and bread and honey. This is a really nice, full, chewy caramel malt, lightly spicy and boozy, but balanced/masked with a bracing bitter pine finish. I wouldn’t call it dry but I wouldn’t call it....wet, either (giggity). I was kind of disappointed because I had such ludicrously high hopes for this beer, but it’s still damn good. Man I like adjectives.

OOKPIKABLE (194) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
Pours goldenamber with almost no head. Far less aroma than a typical imperial IPA. Slight aroma of bubblegum and citrus. Tastes warm, oily, far less alcoholic than it’s 9% abv would suggest, or than most imperial IPAs have. Tastes more like a hoppy dubbel than an imp IPA. Nice.
