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.

bb (7234) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle. Rich copper-amber beer with a nice dark cream coloed head. Grapefruit and caramel aroma with a bit of summer fruit and woodsiness. Nice grapefruit, pine, woodsy flavor with backing malt. Nice bitterness. Grapefruit, pine, caramel lingers. More to it than a pure PNW hop bomb. Tea or maybe begemot starts to show up and really come forward as you drink more.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 28, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, orange-amber color; textured light-tan head with great retention and foamy lacing; great pour. Solid amounts of candy sugar, earthy and citrus hops, and pecans in the aroma; some tea; interesting stuff. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: creamy, lightly carbonated feel; resiny citrus and orange; zesty, tasty IPA. Medium finish: oranges, toastiness, and some husks.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2008
bottle. Pours deep amber with a medium sized off-white head. Fragrant grapefruity hop aroma with some caramel malt in the background. Nice citric hop flavor with some pine needles, caramel, toffee and honey notes. Long, resinous hop finish. Very enjoyable; well crafted and not too over-the-top.

TheEpeeist (3463) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2008
11.5 oz bottle. Clear orange brown with a coating bone skin. Nose is orange zest and toffee; light grass. Almost medium with soft resin and a nice stinging carb. Taste is carmelized orange, tea, pink grapefruit and rose petals. Dry finish with peppery pine.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2008
Tasting - Perfect Pour - Dark amber, creamy off white head. Rich caramel nougat and peachy pine aromas warm to soft honey spruce notes. Sugared fruity and pine hop flavors balance on a bready caramel backbone from start to finish. Loads of hop flavor without any bite. Medium bodied with pillow soft carbonation. A very different, but tasty IPA...

3fourths (8464) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2008
Pours dark amber orange with a 1/4 inch tan head. Nose is instant crystal malt, doughy, nutty, bready, etc, along with some light nut and dried fruit hop notes that are overwhelmed by the crystal malt. Flavor is much the same: overwhelming presence of crystal malt, which has no place whatsoever in IPA, and then as background noise only are some light fruity hop notes, some peanut notes, etc, and only a mild bitterness. Not my cup of tea.

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 (2918) - 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 (5477) - 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.
