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!

MaltOne (214) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2013
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.

12 oz can. Very drinkable malts as well as citrus hop aromatics. The crimson copper color coupled with with a nose, filled with lots of flavor. Really love this type of IPA.
