Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! Corne du Diable American IPA at at 6.5% ABV ($3.08 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 341 ml, bottle date 2-Nov-2014)

Pours clear medium amber with one finger of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thick cap and chunky lacing. (4/5) Nose is caramel and toffee, citrus, pine resin. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, with an off-dry building bitter finish. (3/5)

Decent beer that sort of splits the difference between an IPA and a DIPA. Not as good as their Moralité or Disco Soleil, though – there’s a little harshness in the bittering, and the malt has a little heavy emphasis on the caramel. Good, without being great. (14/20)
