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

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 From a three part tasting at Churchkey (Peeper, Corruption, Double Jack). Of the three this was my least favored - a matter of my taste not beer quality. It was presented as an "American" IPA. By comparison, it was light on the citrus and floral notes, favoring an assertive, resinous bitter with a slightly malty center. A deeper brownish-gold. Nice beer, just not what I was looking for that night. Re-rating - upgraded it relative to other IPA’s I’ve been tasting.

broomstraw dark tan brew with powerful enough festered malt and some hop. more pine and more cheap cigar all day in pie hole the beer has some butterscotch. silky enough body and mouthfeel to go against dirty flavor. probably better ice cold and good as it is.

Nephilium (1318) - Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Assertive pine hop aromatics, pours a clear amber, with a full white head. There’s 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 I’ll be picking up again.

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.
