COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Corruption is our take on an India Pale Ale (IPA). We will corrupt your palate with dangerously drinkable malts as well as assertive piney and citrusey hop aromatics, letting some alcohol and sugars sneak through. The crimson copper color coupled with with a nose, filled with plenty of citrus fruits cant help but bring you down to our level. This is one shady deal that you wont be able to pass up!

flying_pig (1097) - SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2014
355ml Can as a gift brought back from Virignia, USA:
Medium strength hops & bitterness consisting mainly of pine & cedar with some sweetness & lighter malts too, giving the beer a nice balance. Some citrus & juicy fruits start to come through towards the end but the aroma could have been a little stronger.
Hazy orange/amber with a 0.5cm foamy, white head that holds well initially with little movement before eventually turning patchy.
Pine & citrus hops with quite a bitter taste but there is also floral flavours. The sweetness isnt as strong but thankfully the taste was more pronounced with some caramel/sweet malts & grapefruit. Quite nice but I was expecting a more hop filled taste that.
Smooth with a medium body & good carbonation, naturally quite bitter but its not too strong with a dry finish & a crisp, sharp bite as well.

My 2nd DC Brau & its another good one. Id been told this offering was quite disappointed but I found it nice & easy to drink, the nose could have been a bit stronger but it was still and good beer & would probably be one Id go back to now and again if it were readily available in the UK.

hopscotch (10003) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Can... Pours cloudy and dirty-orange with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is toasty and biscuity, but also offers lesser notes of pine and citrus peel. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor presents caramel and medium to heavy citrus peel bitterness. Dry, grassy finish.

Hopster34 (2) - - OCT 20, 2014 does not count
Tastes like a black IPA. Very sweet malt backbone, but plenty of hops on the nose to keep it fresh. Poured from a can into tulip glass, but would love to try this fresh at the source and see how much more aromatic the hops might be.

Well executed west coast IPA. Big pine and citrus, moderate resin. Tangy in the middle, maybe tangerine, with lingering bitterness. Light cereal backbone. Cloudy. Solid choice when fresh.

amorrn (3) - New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2014 does not count
Pours a medium amber with a nice 2 fingers of off-white head in my tulip glass. Nose is lemony and grassy with a bit of a toasty, biscuity note. Taste has bitter grapefruit and grass notes from the hops and a bit of a subdued roasted malt backbone to round it out. Creamy, medium body. Nice hop forward IPA from my old city!

Prufrockstar (1388) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Draft at ChurchKey. Clear amber pour, nice offwhite head, good retention and lacing. Big fruity hop aroma, accented by pine and more grapefruit. Taste: reasonably dry, assertively bitter finish. Just enough sweetness to keep it balanced. Medium body, oily texture. Really quite nice, much better than I recall from the can that was shared months ago.
