COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Corne du diable (French for "Horn of the devil") is a contemporary interpretation of the classic English India Pale Ale. This new style, born on the west coast of North America, is characterized by stronger and hoppier beers. The result is a red ale expressing caramel flavours coming from the malt, sharp bitterness and powerful hop aromas, thanks to dry hopping.

Bottle. EPA-ish aroma: light crystal malt and perhaps some lime-y hops. The flavor has grapefruit nuances but this is primarily a malty IPA.

Umm, malty IPA, I really enjoy these. The maltier start gives a warm toasted caramel flavor that gives you more then just a soapy citrus IPA. The heavier malts allow the hops to not get to sharp, very good pairing of flavors with a solid citrus finish.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Deep translucent orange to red brown pour with big fluffy cream colored head. Sticky lacing leaves distinct rings around the glass with each sip. Caramelly roasty malts are very forward along with a rich resinous hop character. Both richly sweet and piercingly hoppy aroma at the same time. Underlying hints of raisin and vanilla add more complexity. Initial sip is incredibly bitter, somewhat astringently so. Flavor is very piney masking the complex malts that I sensed in the nose. This is pretty straight forward and is a bit of a dissapointment after the excitment of the initial aromas. Finish is kind of soapy leaving an oily finish on the tongue, again very piney. As the palate adjusts the malts make a soft but noticable presence, still very occluded by the strong piney hops... did I use piney enough in this rating?

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 18, 2008
33 ml bottle, many thanks to sloth! Pours a mostly clear mahogany amber color with a moderate sized, somewhat foamy beige head that leaves nice lace. Caramelly and toasty malts, with nice floral and lightly resiny hops. Hop forward flavors, with the toasty, biscuity and somewhat fruity malts evident, brash citrus and pine notes give way to a lingering astringent finish. Medium body and crisp, prickly carbonation.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Very solid beer. Picked up a bottle at West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago. Pours a dark amber. Nice aroma, some hops as well as some malt. Very basic, but so smooth and well balanced. It has a nice texture to the beer, I could see drinking a lot of these.

Ernest (6662) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie, caramel), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit, apricot), with notes of dried mango and wood. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Nice rendition, with a more varied aroma than most American versions. Enjoyable quaffer.

FatPhil (10634) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2008
330ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Bitter and Sour 2008)
Copper, tiny head. Very raw aromatic floral hops, and window-cleaning fluid in the aroma. Sharply tangy palate. Some ginger and a little lightly roasted malt, but overall, very hoppy. Sherbet and fruity. A very small amount is quite nice but not for drinking any quantity of. Possibly I only enjoyed this as it was my first American IPA of the evening. The style gets tremendously boring very quickly.

mjs (5200) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2008
(Bottle at Pikkulintu on 2008-05-15) Amber colour. Not-so-big white head. Hops and some malts in nose. Full palate. Taste is mostly hops with some malts and salty liquorice. A bit too one-dimensional for my taste.

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 16, 2008
on tap, strong floral head and rich body. This was crisp yet very SMOOTH. Huge aroma of flower and citrus. Finishes bitter but with a hint of malts/alcohol to boot. Solid IPA. I like this for its crisp, fruity flavor and bitter finish. Not for the faint hearted.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Hazy reddish-brown with a broken thin white head. Mild grassy hop aroma - very faint overall. Grassy hop taste with biscuity malts, but very little richness present here, and quite plain overall. Basic.
