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.

copper red pour, medium white head that stays. aroma is very earthy with a dark caramel scent and lots of earthy hoppiness. flavor is earthy upfront into again a dark caramel like flavor with some biscuit notes and then resiny bitterness. hops are pretty good and the bitterness isn’t too abrasive at all with pine and citrus coming through but the resin cuts through it all. not bad at all.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2008
11.5oz bottle. Poured a ruddy orange color. Head was thick, foamy, and off white with good retention. There were evenly matched malty caramel and flowery hops in the nose. I also noticed hints of pine needles and cooked vegetables after it sat in the glass for a few minutes. Earthy and dry up front with mild bitterness coming out at the end. I tasted dark malts, dried leaves, flowery/sprucy hops, and caramel. There was also a bit of cherry and even some toasted coconut. Left coast IPA? Not so much. More like a well balanced amber. Maybe a bit overrated the day I tried it (92nd percentile), but good nonetheless.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Hazy, dirty orange color with a pretty wispy dirty white head that thins out pretty quick. Thick, heavy smell... almost old ale-ish. Sharp, floral hop smells with some thin caramel maltiness. Flavors of heavy dried flowers with sharp, dry bitterness all over the palate. Toasted, grainy pale malt and thin caramel sweetness. Very dry bitter finish, somewhat slick on the mouth. The bottle notes "american-style india pale ale". In that respect- not really on the mark. But the quality of the beer itself is decent, though definitely not worth the price.

holdenn (2108) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2008
12 oz bottle from WLV Liquors. Pours a hazed orange with a off white head that fades to a thin layer. Malt and floral notes constitute the greatest part of the beer. Aged caramel malts and brown sugar with floral hops that are ever so slightly soapy in the nose. The flavor profile matches the aroma. A decent amount of bitterness that carries through the finish leaving the tongue dry from the floral hops. Not bad but not that enjoyable either. Floral hops aren’t my favorite bittering hop, I think they could have done better with a different varietal. Especially if they are trying for the "American IPA".

Nuffield (4011) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Red beer, pretty average there. What an interesting (odd?) aroma--suggestive to me of an English bitter. Perhaps they’ve retained more elements of an English P.A. rather than an American IPA. More floral than hoppy. (on tap at Dieu du Ciel, Montreal)

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2008
12 oz. bottle - pours a clear, dark ruby red with cream head along the edges; very nice aromas of sweet, floral hops and sugary malts; bitterness comes out more on the nose more than the mouth; medium body with a nice fuzziness to the texture; bitter finish, but a smooth drinking IPA; decent enough, but pretty steep at $5+ a bottle (in WA)

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle Awesome bottle art, crap beer. Pours a dark amber body with a 3 finger off white head. Aroma is metallic and hoppy like copper. Some pine but a domineering malt character. Flavor is soapy, grape hoppiness, with a big malt character. This lingers long after on your tongue. I did not enjoy this.

nearbeer (4716) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2008
11.5 oz. Clear red-copper with a two-finger, creamy head that lasts. Earthy caramel, cocoa, and fruit aroma. Taste is similarly sweet but with more grain and toasted nut. Slightly bitter ending has some citrus and resin that leaves a dried wood taste on the finish. Medium body is mostly smooth and finishes dry. Very nice, but just too damn expensive in down-South retail stores ($4.50/single).

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2008
Dark orange colored with cloudy appearance. Medium sized yellow head. Aroma is strongly hopped and grassy-flowery with interesting birch leaf tone, nice sweet caramel here too, I like this aroma.Medium bodied. Flavor is also rich with same flowery tone, caramel and lemon come up too. Excellent IPA with decent ABV.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Smells like an IPA, looks like an IPA, but tasted like a metalic regular pale ale. Very disapointing as this beer smells beautiful with piney hops, citrus and caramel. Nice dark copper color with off white head. The taste unfortunatly dpes not match the aroma. It tastes like an IPA but hops are just missing.
