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 The Corne du diable was born in our Montreal brewpub in January 2004

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 9 | Overall: 7

    Aroma is strongly hoppy with an undertone of grapefruit and just a suggestion of sweetness. It pours a dark, coppery amber with a frothy, persistent, off-white head. Bubbles cling to the side of the glass, and lacing is fairly substantial. Flavor is fairly hoppy, somewhat malty and just a little bitter with a hint of sour citrus. Smooth texture has just a little fizziness, and finish is hoppy and bitter with a sour undertone. This is not the best IPA I’ve had, but it is worthy of a try.

    Pours a fairly small layer of brownish head and leaves a very thin cover over brew. Quite bubbly. Has a slightly hazy dark coppery appearance. Good lacing. Looks more like a red amber beer. Aromas of barley maltiness and nice floral, citrus hops, well balanced. Flavours are quite different than usual as this one's more of a stronger bitter type of hop strain. Malts are a bit more overpowering I think. There are mild subtle hints of caramel, nuts and tiny bit of toffee. Citrus seems more in the back. Has a sort of peppery aftertaste from a bit stronger spicy-ness. Creamy drying mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Pretty well balanced between sweet and bitter. One of the more complex tasting IPA's i've had so far. really good stuff.

    Poured a murky bronze with a half inch beige head. Dissipates to leave a thin layer, leaves lots of lacing. Grassy perfume like aroma. Strong malt backbone with a floral, resinous, citrusy, piney favour. Smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel. Dry finish. Tried many times, good beer.

    Initially served cold in a tulip glass, with blue and red smurf-like fantasy creatures. No head and a single line flavor at first after sitting 10 minutes and warming up the hops started to come to the forefront and were much more complex. Definitely let this beer warm up. Pixie on the bottle cap so worth collecting. Good and a good kick.

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    It pours a dark amber and copper with a thick and dimply light-tan head and some residual lacing. A rich aroma of caramel malts, hops, oranges and citrus, raisins and dates, nuts, bread, light bitterness and mild spiciness. The mouthfeel is smooth and rich. Flavors of caramel malts, hops, orange and citrus, light raisins and dates, nuts, breads, bitterness and mild spiciness. Excellent!

    Not the best ipa I've ever had, like a small brew pubs version of ipa. Too dark for the style, one dimensional resin smell and taste, thin mouthfeel, way too expensive for an average beer.

    LOTS of pine and grass in the aroma. thick, dark (for the style) body...not really pale per se. good flavor (more pine) not quite as delectable as the aroma, but well balanced.

    First for me from this intriguing brewery. Poured a rocky ivory head over a clear, dark amber, nearly red body. Aroma was damned good and hoppy, with some hints of pine needle. Taste was very much the same as the nose. Brilliant artwork on the labels from this brewery.

    The beer poured a translucent dark red colour with a thin bubble tan coloured head. The aroma was pine scent, perfumey hops and grassy malt. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, slightly creamy, and medium carbonation. The flavour was light grapefruit, some cereal malt. A very good beer.

    12oz bottle -

    Aroma - nice pine notes, ripe apricots, apple juice...oddly fruit forward with a shot of hops.

    Appearance - hazy orange body, sturdy 1" creamy off-white head

    Taste - the needle seems to point to the overly-sweet side of things, with a drippy pine resin flavor underneath the fruit tones. The sweetness seems a bit heavy-handed.

    Palate - medium carbonation, slightly prickly, medium bodied

    Overall - not horrible, but far from the kind of IPA I enjoy with any regularity. Needs some more drying out me thinks.
