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.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Pours a hazy brownish-yellow color. Aroma is resinous and slightly malty, not much else. Flavor is sweet and cloying, with little hop character coming through. Average.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2008
Hazy amber, small lacing head. Caramel malty, mildly piney nose. Flavor is caramel malts, flowery & a bit piney hops. Very easy, its missing that last bite. Medium bodied, smooth palate. Drinkable, but somewhat dull.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Pours a decent copper hue with full creamy head. The nose is quite floral hops. The flavor falls short and is a bit below average. More bitterness than anything without balance.

philippem (105) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2009 En ft:Delicious crystallized citrus fruits and grapefruit flavour. Refreshing and comforting; with a powerful (but marvellous) bitterness in mouth. Lots of (resinous) hops (I smell and taste Cascade ! Am I right ?). Lovely hazy reddish and/or orange dress. Extremely well-balanced. The more I try it, the more I fall in love with this beer. It might be their best beer of all (I know, Its hard to choose!) --- jai crit a dans le temps en anglais sur BeerAdvocate et euh, javais pas envie de me traduire malgr la ncessit de la chose !

en bouteille: les dernier exemplaires en bouteilles (disponibles sur le march assez aisment) me rappelent davantage une english ipa avec un malt un peu plus prsent et un houblon davantage rsineux que citrique. elle est agrable mais na pas grand chose voir, mon avis, avec lextraordinaire version enfuteille.

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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Pours a copper/amber body, slightly hazed, with a modest ecru head. The aroma is a light caramel overlaid by moderate hoppy scents of grapefruit, zest of lemon, orange rind, and earth. Those hops perform much better in the flavor, the bitterness intensified with just enough of a sweet malty backbone to support it. The finish is dry with a prolonged citric bitterness. Way too easy to drink.

Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Amber pour with a mild aroma of hop and citrus. Mild bitterness and citrus and hop flavor. It was good but not mind blowing.

juiceisloose (1327) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Courtesy beerlando. This one poured a amberish orange color with a medium foamy white head that settles quickly. The aroma is of earthy hops, bread, and some caramel malts. The flavor shows sweet citrus fruit of the orange and grapefruit variety to go with some caramel malt. Citrus hops add bitterness in the background, but not overpowering. Medium bodied with a nice sweet flavor and a slight bitter finish. A nice different take on the style.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2011
2011-07-26, draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 8-5-7-4-15=39
Red to dark amber color; off-white creamy head. The aroma offruity hops is very nice, with sweet caramel too, and a touch of sweaty hops and earthy yeast. Correct body strength, with a quite round mouthfeel; strong caramel flavor, with low residual sugars; strong bitterness, with earthy and resiny hops; the final is a bit dusty.
Very good; bold but not refreshing.

2008-04-26, bottle, 8-4-7-5-15=39
Beautiful red-amber color, bright; the head reduces quickly, but leaves behind a sticky lace. It has a winderful hoppy aroma, with resins, a bit fruity and a touch of vanilla too. Unfortunately the sugars all all gone; there is a strong caramel and toffee flavor and a very strong bitterness, with some good oils; the final is very long. Good, but why wasting so much hop and forgetting the body?

This IPA pours a deep copper amber color from a 33cl bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is earthy malts and floral hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel, earthy and semi-sweet. The hops are floral and citrusy. A different tasting IPA, its an IPA, but the malt and hops profile seem different than the normal citrusy hops and caramel malts. Lots of orange and tangerine flavors as well. Nice balance. Long lasting bitter finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
