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.

Nephilium (1309) - Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Assertive pine hop aromatics, pours a clear amber, with a full white head. Thereís a strong caramel malt flavor, which fades out to a long bitter finish, with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, and pine. Slightly slick mouthfeel, maybe a touch undercarbomated. A nice solid IPA that Iíll be picking up again.

A very spicy, piney IPA. Pretty astringent so the mouthfeel wasnít 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. Itís aiíght; 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 canít 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 thatís more malty with a little hop finish. Well done DC Brau!
