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.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - APR 25, 2008
Bottle, thanks to MaxxDaddy and puzzl. A hazy orange-brown color, with some white film on top. Some rich caramel malt, sugar, citrus hops, and some strange hops in the aroma. The flavor is similar, sweet and rich malt at first with some citric underpinnings; later the malt is dryer and a little grainy. Slightly earthy / grassy bitterness in the finish.

eaglefan538 (2892) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 24, 2008
Bottle from SL. The pour was full red-amber, excellent initial head, ok retention, solid lacing. The aroma was full caramel and floral hops. The flavor was a hearty caramel malty base (with an almost gritty texture, hearty indeed), ample hops, floral and pine most prominent, but fruity citrus elements in there too. A decent brew, but too pricey to seek out again here in the States.

cheeta (1181) - Langå, DENMARK - APR 23, 2008
Heavy hoppy aroma. Huge, creamy, white head. Excellent lacing. Fully lasting longevity. Clear orange body. Heavy acedic initial flavor with flower notes in and a long finish duration. Medium palate.

nimbleprop (4873) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2008
12oz bottle pours a translucent reddish, copper amber with a sudsy, lacing white head. Aroma is extremely hoppy, strong lemon and pine with a malt backing lurking behind the hop resin. Flavor is heavy on the citrus fruits, spicy with plenty of pine and resin on the tongue. Finish is obviously bitter, but the mild sweetness also comes in at the very end. This is a nice IPA, but considering what I paid ($5.29), I think I’ll stick to the cheaper local micro IPAs that give me the same bang for less buck.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 21, 2008
Hazy amber with a bubbly off-white head. Classic citrus hop aroma. Sweetish with a sharp hop bite and a pine hop finish.

Bottle. Amber brown body under a durable tan head. Flavor is more malty then hoppy with a candy like sweetness. Interesting mintiness.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a one finger lasting off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is loaded with floral and citrus hops with a hint of sweet malt and caramel. Taste is the same as aroma just not as prominent. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness. Very good.
