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.

Courtesy beerlando. This one poured a amberish orange color with a medium foamy white head that settles quickly. The aroma is of earthy hops, bread, and some caramel malts. The flavor shows sweet citrus fruit of the orange and grapefruit variety to go with some caramel malt. Citrus hops add bitterness in the background, but not overpowering. Medium bodied with a nice sweet flavor and a slight bitter finish. A nice different take on the style.

Red to dark amber color; off-white creamy head. The aroma offruity hops is very nice, with sweet caramel too, and a touch of sweaty hops and earthy yeast. Correct body strength, with a quite round mouthfeel; strong caramel flavor, with low residual sugars; strong bitterness, with earthy and resiny hops; the final is a bit dusty.
Very good; bold but not refreshing.

Beautiful red-amber color, bright; the head reduces quickly, but leaves behind a sticky lace. It has a winderful hoppy aroma, with resins, a bit fruity and a touch of vanilla too. Unfortunately the sugars all all gone; there is a strong caramel and toffee flavor and a very strong bitterness, with some good oils; the final is very long. Good, but why wasting so much hop and forgetting the body?

This IPA pours a deep copper amber color from a 33cl bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is earthy malts and floral hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel, earthy and semi-sweet. The hops are floral and citrusy. A different tasting IPA, its an IPA, but the malt and hops profile seem different than the normal citrusy hops and caramel malts. Lots of orange and tangerine flavors as well. Nice balance. Long lasting bitter finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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.

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 (4056) - 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)

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.
