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.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Bottle sampled with Mad_indian. Pours amber with a good size foamy off-white head. Aroma of spices, caramel, citrus, and piney hops. The flavor is caramel, spices, light fruitiness, citrus, a good hop character. Very refreshing brew, good body and mouthfeel.

dandeman (542) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
Olfactif: Au premier nez, les notes d’agrumes se présentent; puis, viens le tour des puissants houblons résineux. De légères notes de poivre accompagnent le pamplemousse. Olfactif agréable et équilibré, sans agressivité. Le visuel est ambré, roux, très clair. Peut-on la nommer Red IPA? Mousse 1/2’’ très dense. Bon maintient. Belle dentelle. L’attaque est très houblonnée, astringente, presque métallique. Le poivre et la résine de pin sont exaltés. Houblonnage à cru en évidence. L’amertume tranchante enterre tout. Même les agrumes et le caramel s’expriment difficilement. Texture corpulente. Équilibre moyen. Effervescence active. Loin d’une IPA Anglaise comme le mentionne le descriptif. Très Américaine. Très amère. Pour les amateurs de cote ouest.

Thick white head atop the red liquid. Rich, caramel body balanced with piney, earthy hops. Fairly sweet for an IPA but bitter & luscious all the same. Rated by BrewTom

CacheManyHose (228) - HONG KONG - OCT 24, 2014
From Craftissimo. Warm translucent brown with small creamy off-white head and loads of sudsy lacing. Smells very malty. Toasted cereal, straw, spice, bit of pear, toffee. Taste is spicy malt, moderate bitterness, dry bitter finish. Something about it tastes a little musty and unfresh. Body is medium and very fizzy. Nice aroma but taste is only so-so. Very malty for an IPA.

HKdIPA (286) - HONG KONG - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog in London at home. Dark copper pour with minimal but sticky head. Aroma is very red ale - sweet maltiness but with spicy and then floral hops. Taste is a bit unusual - very deeply bitter but balanced by red ale-esque ("copper"-tasting) maltiness. Very malty, actually. Palate is normal with a strongish carbonation. Dry, slightly sweet finish. Solid but not great.

Half from brewdog bar, sheffield. Deep dark amber red ale with a lacy creamy white head. Aroma of malty raisins and earthy hops. Taste is malty malts and hoppy hops. Slight prickle and medium body.

eduardovl (926) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
341ml bottle served in a tulip glass. A: First of all, perfect beer art. Dieu du Ciel makes, IMHO, the most beautiful beer labels ever! Pours a dark amber clear color forming a medium, creamy and beige head. Medium to low retention and lots of lacings left S: Very sweet caramel in the nose. Candy sugar and flowery and pine hops. Fruity with notes of pineapple and grapefruit T: Follows the nose. A slightly sweet upfront with strong notes of caramel malts and toffee. Nice yeasts which are somehow, a bit Belgian. Hoppy bitterness is, however, quite stingy and dry. Good bitterness. Again, an American IPA with a little touch of Belgian IPA M: Absolutely smooth in the mouth, a strong quality of Dieu du Ciel. Medium body and carbonation with a persistent caramel malts and piny hoppy aftertaste O: Excellent drinkability. Great American/Belgian/Canadian IPA :) [ BA Review @ 3/23/2013 ]
