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.

Another good beer shared by the infamous Roberto! Real bitter for an IPA, grassy that is for sure. Bottle poured a hazy amber. Classic IPA smell and taste. As I said it was grassy bitter. Medium texture, another good brew by Dieu du Ciel! Thanks to robert for sharing!

Cobra (1100) - - MAY 12, 2008
12 oz. twist off bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a hazy amber color, with a sticky tan colored head. Aromas are strictly high alpha American hops. Some malts try to break thru, but not much luck there. Flavors are mostly American hops, with a weak, watery malt backbone. Burning alcohol in the mouthfeel. Not balanced by any means.

Ibrew2or3 (7146) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Courtesy of fishingnet. Pours copper with tan head. The aroma has semi sweet roasty malts with a bit of sticky chewy-ness and pine hops. The taste starts tart moving into full boil pine hop bitterness. Yum. It then becomes more and more roasty as the malts well up creating a malty roasty finish to nearly equal the intensity of the pine hops.

fonefan (36362) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2008
Bottle. Unclear medium amber orange color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly - fully lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, pine, orange, light yeasty, soap. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, finish taste is like citrus tea. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (090408)

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Slightly hazed ruddy copper color with a tall beige head. My initial sniff leads me to believe that this is a simple strong amber. What ever grain is utilized I find it in many ambers and I am not a fan. Woody licorice comes to mind. Some light orange citric qualities join in. Graham cracker flavors topped with some orange jam. Fairly thin in feel. Long citric finish along with a hint of metal. Best I can call this is a strong amber.

kramer (5171) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2008
12 oz bottle, via puzzl. Pours a deep copper body with a slight yeast haze under a sturdy tight bubbled beige head that had excellent retention. Nice crisp citrusy and slightly piney hoppiness over a toasted caramel malt body. Very well balanced in the aroma, a nice light nuance of yeast. Big bitterness up front dominates and grabs your attention quickly, but it fades nicely as you reach the finish, showing off it’s big malt backbone with just a subtle lingering bitterness. This is really a showcase for the dry hopping technique, so bright and hoppy, but not harsh in the slightest. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied for the style with a great creamy texture and perfect soft bottle conditioned carbonation. Wow, this was just a fantastic beer!

Aubrey (3454) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Beautiful amber hue with a long-lasting head. Cakey, yeasty, earthy nose was very inviting. Gave it another point for its sticky, foamy lace. Nice texture; not too heavy. Malts were complex and well rounded. Aromas of fruit (pear and apple) really gave it some depth. Balanced bitterness, along with some hop aromas, brought it all together. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer. It was bold yet pleasant.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2008
Bottled. Thanks to Anders Holmskär. Deep amber colour. Great hoppy aroma from tea, along with a bit of woody notes. Superb hop flavour with good bitterness and a bit of caramel. Woody, big, longlasting hop bitterness. Medium bodied.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2008
12oz bottle. Clear deep orange with a medium head. Aroma of pine and floral hops with plenty of caramel malt.Taste was sweet caramel and perfume with an intensely bitter finish. A standard American IPA, but nothing here to justify the $5 pricetag.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Fruity hoppy grapefruit aroma. Sweetish malty bitter hoppy grapefruit flavor . Hasa long malty hoppy ´finish and a long bitter aftertaste.
