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.

Pours with minimal head, amber. Initial strong smell of hops which fades to coffee. Moderate hops with mild malt coffee and pine.

UXO (523) - CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours clear medium amber with one finger of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thick cap and chunky lacing. (4/5) Nose is caramel and toffee, citrus, pine resin. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, with an off-dry building bitter finish. (3/5) Decent beer that sort of splits the difference between an IPA and a DIPA. Not as good as their Moralité or Disco Soleil, though - there’s a little harshness in the bittering, and the malt has a little heavy emphasis on the caramel. Good, without being great. (14/20)

Kolor - herbaciano-miedziany, mętny. Piana - średnio wysoka, trwała. Zapach - chmielowo-żywiczny średni. Smak - wyraźna nuta grapefruitowo-żywiczno-chmielowa, mocna słodycz, w tle lekka kawa i nuta miodu, mocna goryczka. Smaczne.

Franckg (199) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Arômes de malt caramélisé, résine de pin épicée et houblons. En bouche c’est bien houblonné, amer et épicé. Touche de caramel, zeste d’orange et d’herbes citronnées. Bonne amertume sèche et herbacée.

Pumpkin87 (53) - - FEB 3, 2015
Pours clear brown amber with slight red overtone; small but foamy off-white head reduces quickly but leaves some lacing. Grapefruit rind and caramel malt on the nose, and that’s what shows up in the glass. Despite the threat of being an "American-style IPA," this isn’t a bad beer. But it is schizophrenic: one sip is all harsh rind, the next is all gooey caramel, finally the third is balanced. Then the cycle repeats. Corne du diable is less abrasive than the standard American IPA. In fact, you might want a second. But a third might be pushing your luck.

Bonne ipa bien équilibrée. Sans trop d'amertume, se consomme parfaitement et agréablement.
