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 canít help but bring you down to our level. This is one shady deal that you wonít be able to pass up!

12 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy copper color. The head is pretty tall, thanks to an aggressive pour - about two fingers high and off-white in shading. It fades at a moderate rate, and leaves behind small rings of lacing on the glass. S: The aroma is absurdly biscuity. I also pick up some floral, piny hops behind it, but wow, this has one of the strongest bread-like components Iíve ever encountered in an IPA. No citrusy notes here, sadly; considering Columbus hops donít give off much of a citrus aroma, thatís not really surprising. T: Biscuit notes trail down into the flavor profile, and cluster near the opening. Hops last throughout the flavor profile, and are very floral in nature, perhaps even nectar-esque. Finishing bitterness is mild, balanced well by the malt backbone. I have to say, it grows on me the more I drink it. M: The body is just a shade under medium. A clean, dry finish helps to scrub off any excess resin, but it will still linger slightly as more is consumed. Carbonation is about right, maybe 5% too low. O: Very well made, but not my style of IPA. I prefer the lighter-colored, citrusy versions over the coppery, crystal-malt-and-pine ones. Itís still a good IPA, especially if youíre into the latter.

Strykzone (5375) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2015
12 ounce can from a locals trade involving nimbleprop. Cool name. Dingy, hazy, golden brown beer with a finger + of beige foam. A cool aroma. Pine, citrus, and floral. It has a zing to the nose. Flavor is big and complex. A lot going on, especially for 6.5% ABV. Bitterness is significant as is pine. Fruit is all over the place. Citrus and tropical. Some bready malts and spiciness. Cedar? With warming the malts stepped up. This is good stuff.

thedm (5034) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 30, 2015
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange brown colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The sharp crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of mild citrus mild caramel mildly vinous and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Can. Pours a hazy amber with a medium white head. Nose is citrus and hops. Flavor is more bitter and piney and less malty. Solid but not unique.

Amber/orange color, clear. Medium body, intense flavor, smooth texture, low carbonation, lingering and flavorful palate. Bitter but not dry, pleasant acidity, well balanced. Hoppy, complex, herby, fruity, nutty malt. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
