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 can’t help but bring you down to our level. This is one shady deal that you won’t be able to pass up!

A very spicy, piney IPA. Pretty astringent so the mouthfeel wasn’t the best, but the flavor was great.

Can supplied by WillRunForBeer. Many thanks! To oversized snifter, it pours a dark orange with which a foamy whitish-ringed head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of roasted red peppers, grape seed oil, flax, pine bark, and sourdough bread. Tastes the same with the addition of American hops, wet cardboard, and cooking yeast. It’s ai’ght; nothing to write home about.

Can. Pours murky orange brown with a scant off white head. Aroma is fresh cut grass, citrus. This has a nice caramel backbone with a touch of smoke for bite and grassy hop. Very well balanced.

Can enjoyed in proper hotel room glass while at a work conference. Pours a deep orange to red with slight off white head. Aroma is malty, bread, citrus and slight pine. Taste is immediate vegetale jalapeno pepper, malt and then some dry tasting hoppy pine. Not sweet and finishes clean with a slight bitterness. Easily drinkable and I really dig the vegetale aspect of this but I can’t imagine if others get that it would be something people clamor for.

Nice aroma of pine and citrus. Beautiful body with a head that sticks around with nice lacing. Piney and resin taste that’s more malty with a little hop finish. Well done DC Brau!

jsmerig (1291) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow gold with a thick light tan head and great lacing. Aroma of citrus and rye. Taste is rye spiced and darkly bitter. leaves a spicy rye bitterness in the finish. Interesting.

PhillyCraft (3443) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2014
On tap at Teresa’s, pours reddish copper with small to medium white head, good lacing. Something about red colored IPAs that has me knowing some sweetness or caramel malt is coming on. Got some of that, biter and ashy hops, pine, cherry stickiness, and sugar. Very hoppy but the ashy bitterness and color turned me off. Needs a bit more grapefruit or tropical hopping.

A great IPA that takes its malt seriously. First try from this DC brewery. Happy I did. Pleasant piney/citrus nose. Nice hop for an IPA, but not overpowering. Sweet malt all around. Well done.
