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.

lamas (1630) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 18, 2008
11.5 oz. bottle. Pours a murky, rust-colored amber body with a finger-thick tan head. A rich, malty aroma that features lots of roasty caramel upfront with some resiny hops underneath. Medium to full-bodied. A whole lot of caramel starts things off taste-wise. Finishes with some ample hoppy bitterness in the form of grapefruits and orange rinds. A little biscuity too. Nice balance.

bhensonb (14895) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 17, 2008
330 ml. bottle. Dark amber color with a significant beige head. Aroma of roasted caramel, citrus and resin. Medium body with creamy carbonation. It tastes really fresh. The roasted malt is there, but the hop seems to overcome it. Im not saying its unbalanced, but Im not saying its balanced. The finish is both sweet and bitter. I am saying it is absolutely delicious. Works for my mouth.

JohnnyJ (5544) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Pours a deep amber with nice off-white head and good lacing. The aroma is very nice, caramel malt, piney hops, citrus, grapefruit, very well done aroma for an american style IPA. The flavor however was weaker and the body was slightly watery. Well balanced IPA and fairly complex, just a little weak on the palate.

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.
