UPDATED: SEP 24, 2010 Wow! In an instant you can tell this is an excellent beer. With the sun shining through it. It is a glorious sunset color. The flavor and character of a double without the higher alcohol. Absolutely now one of my favorite IPA’s. Hopheads must try this. Leans toward what I would describe as a Red IPA. Hearty, grainy and bitter. The bitterness is quite an experience. Long and lingering but not offensive. Incredible, Incredible, Incredible. Beginning middle and finish. Just an added note. There is a beautiful fresh brewed black tea finish. Delicious! Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2010
341 mL Bottle. Murky deep amber body with a foamy off-white head that settles to a tenacious layer that seems to want to cling all over the glass; I get very thirsty when I see that kind of clinging in a beer’s head. Intense aroma of sweet malt and resiny hops; crystal malt and grapefruit rind add their contribution to the bouquet. There is a subtle hint of caramel there too; like a good English pub ale with a nice sharpness to it coming from the resiny hops. Sweet and crystal malts along with resiny hops dominate the flavor, grapefruit rind dominates in the aftertaste and lingering with the resiny-bitter hops in the finish. Silky smooth in the mouth yet bold in every aspect, this beer speaks up and leaves a lasting impression on the tongue. This is truly a fine I.P.A. that is meant to be savored in an open glass for its stunning aroma. My congrats to the Brasserie Dieu du Ciel! fregolo2 (13) - - OCT 31, 2012

Bottle. Pours hazy coppery with ruby edges and 2-fingers of uniform, off-white head and great lacing. The aroma is heavy piney hops, grapefruit, mango, caramel malt, black pepper. The taste is caramel malty, piney hoppy, with mango, grapefruit, honeydew, and a massive fresh ground black pepper flavor. Not nearly as pronounced as the route des epices, but perhaps more black peppery flavor than I have ever experienced in an IPA, and man, does it work with this one. The complexity and balance are off the charts, and this one was one of the most unique, exciting IPAs I’ve had in a long time. If everything from Dieu Du Ciel is this good, I may have to move to Canada. Frankieboy (12) - ste-justine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2008
L’une des meilleures IPA qu’il m’a été donner de boire jusqu’à présent. Une bière houblonnée à souhait qui ne vous décevra pas côté amertume, si c’est ce que vous recherchez.

A pretty malty aroma. This is a great beer. Flavor has quite a bit of biting hops despite its brownish color. A sipping beer, but a good one. BeerFanDan17 (1120) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - MAR 2, 2013
A first-rate IPA. A superb balance similar to a Great Divide Hercules Double IPA. Great maltiness with a slight sweetness and hint and of chocolate. Impeccable malt-hop balance as well.

Backlog. Tried it a number of times. Dominated by caramel and pine(y)-hop aromas. Fantastically balanced, one of my favourite IPAs all-time. crazy_cat_lady (601) - - APR 8, 2016
Bottle from Craig and Lisa last year at Christmas. Been in the cellar for more than a year. Lovely reddish brown with thin tan leather head with nice lacing. Strong biscuit and hop and caramel aromas, with similar flavours. Full, smooth mouth feel. Bitterness in the tail end, but not too much. This is really good.
