Purchased at the LCBO as a clear out for $2.15/ea. 341ml bottle. Served at 8deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 1" high white head that lasts 3-4mins before film out. Super extra dark gold almost brown colour. Filtered clear

S- Lots of malt. Has that sickly sweet IPA feel

T- Yup! That sickly sweet thing. LOL. Has a nice hop presence but the malt just pounds through. It's heavy to say the least but it's not bad by any stretch.

M- Nice and dry. Has that bite that an APA has although this is an IPA!

O- Weird one but good. Nothing to turn down at $12.40 a 6pk. Good all around and well balanced

Food Pairing

This pretty good little brew went well with....... Cinnimon buns very warm with butter on top melting off.

WOW that was a tasty one

Enjoy

Appearance - This beer pours a deep amber/red with 1 finger heard which receeds fairly quickly leaving a light lacing over the top of the beer.

Aroma - The aroma is dominated by a pine resin followed by some orange peel, grape fruit, and lemon.

Taste -Earthy and Pine flavor dominates this drink then bread, orange peel, lemon and some pepper down the throat. the grapefruit is gone completely but bread and pepper appear, which i did not smell. The smell is much sweeter than the taste

Mouth feel - This is a light-medium bodied beer the carbonation is very prickly and gives it a gritty feel the pepper adds to this "gritty" feel all the way down.


Overall - This is definitely not the worst IPA I've ever had, It is fairly decent and doesn't taste all that bad. The problem I have is its priced right along side some much better IPA's. I would buy a Moralite or Le Castors Yakima IPA ect... long before this one but it was definitely an experience. Try it if you can.

"Devil's Horn"

Cloudy dark amber/copper color with powerful subtle activity. Creamy frothy beige 1 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with strong legs.

Aromas of spicy fruity citrus, a little faint. Flavors of fruits like orange, lemon, grapes, berries, ester with some toffee, coriander, and floral/herbal spices. A little grassy, piney, and earthy/woody. Pleasant sugary feel with low sharpness.

Slick light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium strength finish, ending with a strong sweetness and minimal sourness, but more of a herbal peppery like spiciness and oaky feel.

Overall this is a good craft offering decent flavors and a really nice look. Although some freshness is perceptible, it feels a little flat. This is DDC's sweet version of an IPA, while I tend to like those more, it does not compete with the sharper ones like Moralité.

Almost transparent deep amber colour, with beige creamy head, really nice.
Resinous and tropical fruity nose and taste, sweet caramel and toffee, roasted malts.
Very good flavours, medium carbonation, soft mouthfeel.
Fantastically balanced, one of my favourite IPAs.

Copper in color with a tall off-white head, good retention and decent lacing. The nose is slight for an IPA, a bit of citrus and some floral notes. The taste starts with some caramel and than transitions to a ubiquitous 'bitter' finish; pleasant but unremarkable. There is plenty of carb and the beer drinks light, but not in an unpleasing way. Overall...it's fine.
