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.

One of the best East Coast IPAís Iíve had. Really big candied fruit and and subtle pine. Tastes like a big juicy mess of candied fruit its great. Theres a sweet malt backbone that doesnít dominate the beer which happens so often. Really good ipa

Very good ipa. Aroma is more on the piney side than the citrusy (although some hints do appear). Taste is plenty of the pine, resin hop flavor that is positioned nicely by the malt, which gives a thickness and amber hue. Finish is a bitter zip with a medium body that lingers just a bit. Overall, very good.

skmikeg (1045) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours clear amber-orange with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine resin, dank hops, herbal/grassy hops, and some light bready and sweet malts. Taste is fresh citrus, pine, tropical fruits, herbal hops, caramel, and sweet malts. Has a medium body with a pretty creamy mouthfeel and a slightly dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty IPA that almost seems likes a hoppy west coast amber ale like Modern Timeís Blazing World.

A good IPA, but nothing special. A bit of citrus, a somewhat bitter taste to the hops.

Hazy light brown colour with a small dense foamy off-white head. Citrus, pine and mild resin, moderate bitterness, sweetish malt and some dryness in the aroma. Delicious. The flavour is resiny, citrusy and piney hops, moderate bitterness, dry malt and mild alcohol. Tasty and very drinkable.
