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.

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.

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!

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.

anders37 (17614) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2008
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.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy, dark brown/copper pour with a lasting head. Oh, and did I mention this shit GUSHED ALL OVER MY FLOOR? -1. Flavor is chewy, bittered malts with lots of finishing hops. Caramel and margarine. Aroma has dank, flowery hops and some sage. Nothing too exciting here.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle from jjpm74, as a bonus!!! Thanks John, I was too cheap to pick this up in PA. Pours a hazy amber orange with retentive off white head. Aroma of citrus (lemon, orange, tangerine) with some caramel malts hiding in the background. Medium bodied with an organic/earthy texture. Flavor of caramel, toasted malt, and wet grains that is countered by a huge, puckering grapefruit rind bitterness that carries through to the finish and lingers. Lots of dry hopping on this one,. An interesting take on the style and way out of balance as far as hops go- but I love hops so I don’t mind. Cheapdark would absolutely hate this stuff.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2008
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, nuts, wood, chocolate malts, caramel, and resin. Poured dark amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, tan head that lasted throughout. Hazy. Sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly bitter. Tastes of hops, malts, caramel, resin, wood, and more hops. I do not detect the pine that most people seem to taste in this beer. Medium body. Chalky texture. Soft to average carbonation. Dry hoppy finish.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2009 Bottle shared by mmtmatrix. A pretty nice surprise. Poured a nice copper color with a moderate off-white head that left some lacing. Aroma of flowery, earthy hops with some light citrus undertones. Moderate bitter, earthy entry leads into an earthy, flowery hop hit with some light citrus on the finish. Full on the palate with a nice bitter dryness. Nice.
