Dieu Du Ciel -- Corne du Diable

type: "American" IPA
origin: St. Jerome, Quebec
price: $5/12oz at BDB
abv: 6.5%

Yes, we've been somewhat lax on posting lately, so let's just get this out of the way: By no means is this worth $5 for a single bottle, and the title ("Horn of the Devil") is misleading.  Why?  It's a decent IPA and there's some fair bitterness and smoky flavors, but it's a little too sweet and lacking wonderful hop aromas to be as American as I've grown fond of.  And honestly, it's not alcoholic enough to really kick your ass like a pair of Devil-horns would if they were, say, jammed into your gut in a lake of fire.  At least I'll give it +1 for the bottle label, which shows a well-dressed Devil holding a beer.
