Dieu du Ciel Moralité American IPA

20150825-114700.jpg

Pours cloudy yellow-orange. Pine and citrus on the nose with the citrus winning. The balance between those notes carries through onto the palate. The hoppy bitterness is crisp and palate cleansing with a bit of pine resin left to hang out around the molars. Very pleasant IPA. If you can find it at the LCBO (apparently there are two 4 packs available in Barrie and Ottawa, respectively,) or get a chance to visit the brewpub in Montreal, I highly recommend giving it a try.

Slightly cloudy pale yellow. A bit saison-like on the nose with yeast and hints of white pepper and banana. Grapefruit pith bitterness on the palate that marches outward and sets-up camp on the edges of the finish. A refreshing palate cleansing beer.
