Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! Moralité – American IPA at 6.9% ABV

Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! Moralité American IPA at 6.9% ABV ($3.28 via Beer Club Offering #14, 341ml, bottle date 19-Nov-2014)

Pours hazy pale amber with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention, moderate lacing. (5/5) Nose is bright and pithy citrus, mild caramel malt. (9/10) Taste is moderate sweet and moderate bitter. (9/10) Light to medium body, moderate sustained carbonation, and a dry, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)

This has a strong similarity to DDC’s Disco Soleil, but less sweet and more restrained. More mature: grapefruit for breakfast, instead of sweet mandarins. A very well-behaved IPA with tons of flavour and character. The collaboration with The Alchemist is also apparent, and there are distinct similarities to Heady Topper. (18/20)
