Corne Du Diable

12oz single from Green’s, Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Lovely looking, chill hazed amber pour with a towering ivory, thick rocky head. Nice lace. Head retention is good.
Nose is really that of the one that you usually associate with a bigger, west coast DIPA – all sugary, resinous notes.
DEFINITELY an American IPA in terms of its bitterness. A real, peppery bite throughout the beer and not much subtlety about it. It’s OK because it is balanced with some good caramel malts, but it still stings a little in the finish.
A touch slick in the mouth, and together with the fact that this seems to drink above the advertised ABV both take away from the drinkability a little.
OK, but not really my cup of tea.
