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.

From a 11.5 oz bottle. Pours a murky amber with an off white head. Toffee and floral hop aroma. Surprisingly sweet malt flavors for an IPA. Hops are pretty subdued for the style.

J’aurai dû la noter depuis longtemps. IPA assez sèche mais avec un corps présent et suffisament "rond" pour que ça ne soit pas "tropsec". Arômes et notes résineuses et végétales d’herbes.Peu de fruit. Une IPA "verte" si je puis dire, bonne mais peut être manquant de fruité justement. La Route des Bières sinon, comme toujours, Aix en Provence.

Kauge (945) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle at Get Well in Toronto. Bottled 1/2 year ago. Opaque dark orange with a coppery shade. Head’s smallish, off-white. Really malty, jammy, marmalady, caramelly on the nose. Strangely, I get some anise. Sweet caramelly flavour with leafy, herby notes. Crisp carbonation, somewhat aggressive even. Would’ve guessed it was rye, but it’s not. Fruity. Somewhat thin in the mouth. The anise continues in the flavour. A pretty disappointing brew, perhaps it was too old... I’m pretty sure I’ll have it again one day to make sure.

DomD (198) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2015
Poured from bottle. Nice citrus aroma. Pours a cloudy amber that settles into clear. Light to medium bitter taste. Medium body, sticky texture, with a slightly bitter finish. A nice west coast style IPA.

A long-time favourite in Central Canada, Corne du Diable exemplifies the craftsmanship demonstrated by Dieu du Ciel on a regular basis. The look of a red ale, with a soft white head with strong lacing and staying power. The nose is led by a significant roasted malt base, enhanced by citrus hops and a touch of carmel. the taste profile is complex, leading with roasted malt, caramel and citrusy and piney hops. Touches of orange rind, dark berries and roasted almonds combine to tip this beer towards an east coast IPA style. The soft carbonation is appropriate for the style. Balance is maintained in the sustained taste, with the richer sweetness in the malt coming to the foreground.

Alengrin (3684) - BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2015
IPA from what is probably Canada’s most renowned brewery. Thick and frothy, yellowish egg-white, dense, creamily lacing head over an initially clear, coppery red amber coloured beer, notably darker and more red than is custom for the style, so it already distinguishes itself in its looks. Aroma has wonderful piney and citrussy hops as well as a good dosis of malts, the latter even becoming stronger than the hops as the beer warms up: grapefruit peel, cedar needles and even cedar wood, hemp, orange zest, roses, lime peel, biscuit, toasted bread, walnuts, pink peppercorns, fresh and pungent apple cake sweetness piercing through here and there, mango, touch of liquorice. Clean and crisp onset of dried fruits, mango, hints of pineapple and strawberry, fairly soft carbo with a deep sourish accent for balance, lime freshness, after which - as expected seeing the colour and inhaling the aroma - a rounded, soft but very ’present’ malt character follows, toasted and nutty with a caramelly edge but not turning really sweet anywhere. It knows where to stop: though it persists till deep into the finish, this maltiness is overcome by a powerful yet elegant, gracious hop bitterness in the finish, spicy, piney, grapefruity and in that sense very American. It never becomes overly harsh though, so the beer ends with a juicy ’bittersweetness’. Lovely and idiosyncratic IPA; I would not call this an English style IPA, the hop character is way too strong and ’American’ for that, but it does put more emphasis on the malts than usual in this (now) obiquitous style; I’d rather classify this as an American red IPA, with which it shares all of its main features. Whatever the variant may be, this is a juicy, appetizing, flawless and interestingly delicious ale, in which one can clearly feel the expertise of this brewery. I cannot get enough of their beers now.

Bottle to pint glass. Looks like muddy water, very small head. Aroma is brown bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, slight yeast. Taste is fruity, apricot, date. Also brown sugar and French toast. Yum. Slight vinegar like aftertaste, but not too bad. Carbonation is weak. Don’t know that I would classify this as an American Style IPA; seems closer to a Belgian, but lighter on the strong yeast. Very tasty though.
