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.

Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2008
Bière brune et ambrée, passablement voilée. Elle laisse un léger col crème qui disparaît rapidement. Arôme de houblons floraux et fruités aux notes d’herbe fraîche, d’agrumes et de mangue. Goût plutôt amer, très houblonné, avec du caramel, des figues, des céréales torréfiées. Arrière-goût d’agrumes, de mangues et d’alcool cendrée. L’amertume s’accroche longtemps. La bouche est bien ronde, pétillante sinon piquante. C’est une bonne bière, qui aurait été excellente avec une amertume mieux dosée.

Ughsmash (7006) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle from Festivus! Poured fiery medium orange with about an inch of beige head sticking around. The aroma was bright and all hopped up with floral and deeper grapefruit standing out.. warmth brought out a layer of caramel and a bouquet of darker fruit.. well-done. The flavor picked up a bit of a metallic twang that detracted a bit.. grainy, sweet ambery caramel at the core with earth, pepper, and floral bitterness surrounding.. sticky, resiny finish. Medium-bodied and (as mentioned previously) almost more of a strong red ale than an IPA.. bitterness was persistent and higher, leading to a warm, but rather refreshing finish.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2008
Bottled. Very hazy amber appearance with a rich fluffy white foam. Floral hops, caramel, pine-apples, white bread and herbs. Malty flavour (for the style) of caramel, flowers, soap, mint and grass. Clean mouthfeel. Medium bitter finish of grapefruit, flowers, caramel and blood oranges.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle. Hazy amber colour with a nice white head. Nice aroma of sweetness from the malt and a lot of hops. Flavour of hops and caramel, very nice and very hoppy, ends up with a smooth finish.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Bottle, thanks to after4ever. Pours clear dark orange with a lacy white head. Perfume, earth and pepper nose. Light body and full carbonation. If I had to guess the style on this one, I would have gone with something like imperial red, except for the light body. Dry and perfumy finish. This just confirms my suspicion that any beer with the words "American-style I.P.A." in the description is guaranteed to not be an American-style I.P.A. Interesting beer, though.

Amber with reddish notes and white head. Clear hoppy aroma with hints of citrus, soap and flowers. Good solid bitterness.. Bit dry!

after4ever (5937) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 28, 2008
330. Thanks, glouglouburp! Pours bright ruby, somewhat hazy. Thin rim of white foam. Big perfumey floral hoppy nose. Smells like garden flowers as much as hop flowers--so perfumey! Medium body with very present carb. Rich caramel on the mid-palate, along with plenty of piney hops. Long piney finish. Tonight we sampled probably the driest IPA I’ve ever actually enjoyed, and this, which is probably the sweetest, perfumiest IPA I’ve had. This is a good one, but at this level of sugary floral aromatics, it can’t really cross over into awesomeness. That’s fine, because someone needs to be out here occupying this "sweetest good IPA ever" square on the map, and who better than Dieu du Ciel?

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2008
Bottled. A slightly hazy red-amber beer with a medium tan head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy - with both notes of grass and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy again with notes of grass and grapefruit, but also pine needles, leading to a very bitter finish.

Skinnyviking (6383) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle. High good looking off-white head. Hazy amber body. Fruity lemon peach aroma with notes of caramel. Flavor rather complex and hard to describe but the fruityness of the aroma is less dominant in the flavor of caramel, grass and maybe pine. Low carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste.

Emil (6067) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle. A beautyfull light hazy amber beer with a big tan head. The aroma is of caramel malt, piney, citric, it´s nise and hoppy, the taste is light sugar sweet, caramel malt, piney, citruc, quit plesant. Medium body with a light sweet, very dry finish. Just like I like it!
