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.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 26, 2008
12 ouncer at Belmont Station in PDX--Poured a ruby-orange-copper body with a medium one-fingered fluffy white head. Lots of sweet malts and hops in the nose. Caramel, creamy, a little traveled. Not the West Coast hoppy brew I hopped for, but not too bad either. Reminiscent of a lot of East Coast IPAís best efforts. English maltiness with a little PNW flair. Not bad, but not worth $5+ a bottle, either when you can get a lot better right here in Portland.

By itself, it would be a decent IPA. But, with all of the text on the bottle proclaiming itís based on IPAs from the pacific northwest, it falls short. Nice fresh hop aromas. Toasty caramel flavors (marris otter base malt?). Not overly hop flavored - just a bit bitter.

You know what I think is overrated? balalnce. When I hear people talk about a balance in beer as some sort of holy grail, I usually have to strain to keep from rolling my eyes and think to myself that balance usually means boring. That being said, this was a perfect balanced beer, with a sturdy malt base - a lot of chocolat eand caramel paired with a solid grapefruity hop that remains in sync from the first sip to the finish. And the beer continues to reveal new flavors as it warms - some smoke, some citrus. Really nice stuff.

speedywinger (29) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2008
Bottle from the depanneur down the road from the Dieu Du Ciel Brewpub. Thick beige head atop a cloudy auburn color body. Outstanding lacing...like other beers from this brewery. Strong aroma of hops, fresh earthiness, pine, and orange peel (or some under-ripe fruit). Flavor is piney with caramel malts and honey. Soapy long finish. Very nice medium body IPA. Props to Dieu du Ciel for another fine brew.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a deep amber body with a really creamy off-white bubbly head. The aroma is extremely hoppy with strong grasses and weeds with herbs and a strong cereal grain. The flavor has a bitter grassy hop and earthy Chinook or something like that. Dark amber malts. Bitter grassy palate. Itís dense and moderately bodied.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Pours a dark reddish brown with big carbonation bubbles and a medium off-white froth on top. Sweet waxy malt, honey, and very fresh grapefruit hop aroma. First taste is honey, grapefruit and a little bit salty. Finishes with quite a bit of dark caramel malt, honey and pine. A very rich bold malt. Trademark Dieu du Ciel spiciness. Medium light bodied, lots of smoother carbonation. [anything garlic pairs well with this]

argo0 (13235) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 21, 2008
(33cl bottle) Small beige head atop clear, dark amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, orange/floral, caramel, some grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit/orange, some caramel, nectarine/mango, light bread. Soft medium body with light acidity. Seems more like a hoppy amber than an IPA, though itís quite tasty however itís categorized.
