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.

nearbeer (5219) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2008
11.5 oz. Clear red-copper with a two-finger, creamy head that lasts. Earthy caramel, cocoa, and fruit aroma. Taste is similarly sweet but with more grain and toasted nut. Slightly bitter ending has some citrus and resin that leaves a dried wood taste on the finish. Medium body is mostly smooth and finishes dry. Very nice, but just too damn expensive in down-South retail stores ($4.50/single).

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2008
Dark orange colored with cloudy appearance. Medium sized yellow head. Aroma is strongly hopped and grassy-flowery with interesting birch leaf tone, nice sweet caramel here too, I like this aroma.Medium bodied. Flavor is also rich with same flowery tone, caramel and lemon come up too. Excellent IPA with decent ABV.

msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Smells like an IPA, looks like an IPA, but tasted like a metalic regular pale ale. Very disapointing as this beer smells beautiful with piney hops, citrus and caramel. Nice dark copper color with off white head. The taste unfortunatly dpes not match the aroma. It tastes like an IPA but hops are just missing.

oh6gdx (26412) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2008
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is bigtime fruity hops with some mild grassyness. Flavour is rather hoppy with some hints of grass and earth.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle from Hogtownharry, thanks a lot Harry! Bottle decants into the glass, a deep hazed amber with orange hues. Head is a creamy froth of beige and leaves nice lace. The nose is dominated by floral hops ,and has solid doses of citrus (mostly grapefruit), dark bread, caramel malts, wet wood and dank forest air. Quite interesting. This IPA shows citric floral hops as the main flavour contender, with bready, malty goodness leading to sweet caramel and toffee. There is a lingering spice that I also quite like. Finish is hoppy, bitter and pleasant. I wish I could get this all the time. Thanks so much for the bottle Harry!

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle from WLV. Nose is citrusy and floral. Deep red amber. Taste is sweet and fruity with a clean bitter finish. Not exactly where Id expect a NW IPA, but still comes across as a very nice IPA on all counts. Nice.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 26, 2008
12 ouncer at Belmont Station in PDX--Poured a ruby-orange-copper body with a medium one-fingered fluffy white head. Lots of sweet malts and hops in the nose. Caramel, creamy, a little traveled. Not the West Coast hoppy brew I hopped for, but not too bad either. Reminiscent of a lot of East Coast IPAs best efforts. English maltiness with a little PNW flair. Not bad, but not worth $5+ a bottle, either when you can get a lot better right here in Portland.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2008
By itself, it would be a decent IPA. But, with all of the text on the bottle proclaiming its based on IPAs from the pacific northwest, it falls short. Nice fresh hop aromas. Toasty caramel flavors (marris otter base malt?). Not overly hop flavored - just a bit bitter.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Amber color. Smell of citrus, pine, malt, copper, citrus peal and caramel. Taste of hops, malt, nuts, metallic, citrus and bread.
