COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer style was created in the late 1990s by some breweries on the west coast of the United States, and most notably by Rogue. Its an extreme version of the American IPA. Its 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.

Adamsville (311) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
Apparence : Dore aux reflets jaunes, claire, effervescence et vitesse des bulles moyennes, trs mince col blanc sans relle dentelle. Nez : Crales, pche, rsine, pamplemousse, zeste dorange, trs lger alcool. Intensit moyenne plutt leve, soit correcte pour une DIPA. Got : Mi-sucre sous forme de caramel, rsine, pamplemousse, trs lger alcool. Sensation : Effervescence moyenne-faible, petite chaleur de lalcool, piquant sur la langue et au plais, finale assez longue balance entre le ct malt (plus sucr) et houblonn (amer). Corps moyen mince. Bref : Trs bonne bire qui se laisse boire facilement. Cest une bire trs quilibre entre le malt et les houblons certainement trop dailleurs pour un amateur de DIPA. On ne tombe par contre pas du ct des Barleywines amricains o le malt est plus prsent, tout comme lalcool.

Bierdimpfe (633) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Hazy dark gold color with strong activity. Weak white half a finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with strong legs. Faint aromas of sweet tropical fruits and bitter floral hops. Flavors of pineapple, orange, piney, lemon, caramel, floral and herbal spices. Slightly fruity sweet with some citrus sharpness and bitter grassy hoppy feel. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Strong and long finish, ending with an highly spicy astringent orange peels and clove like tongue coat feel. Overall a good craft with decent flavors and OK freshness. Slightly unbalanced being overly spicy and a little vinous and boozy.

Pours hazy golden with medium white head. Nose is tropical fruits. Aromas are tropical fruits, orange, caramel and pine resin. Average carbonation, full body. Long sweet and fruity finish. Nice cocktails of flavours, and nice balance between sweetness and bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Au pif la chaman dgage un parfum dagrumes, de sucre & dalcool. Au gout cest un beau mlange dannanas, de citron, dorange & de caramel. Laventure se termine avec une bonne amertume... lgrement rsineuse. OutfuckingBon. ;)

kathouse (1857) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Hazy gold with a light toffee aroma. Medium body, biscuits and barley flavors accented by a pepper and floral hop. First 2 sips were not all that pleasing but this isnt bad.

Calisky (2879) - ALSACE, FRANCE - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle from La Birrerie in Illkirch-graffenstaden. Couleur orange trouble, forte mousse. Nez houblonn resineux et caramel blond cremeux. Gout rsineux, raisin, amande, caramel cremeux puis bonne amertume agrume, voir florale, alcool (on dirait un suze leger en fin de bouche), le tout bien houblonn. Pas commune pour une ipa, bien complexe, mais ronde en bouche et buvable...un vrai plaisir.

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.
