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!

Dark orange pour. Hops are well balanced making this a session able IPA. Very well done, an all around good ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

obguthr (4021) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pleasurably soapy and sweet aroma of marshmallow peeps, orange peel, orange blossoms, and grapefruit. Clear amber, thick yellow head, nice lacing. Honey, thistle, and lemongrass flavor. Bubblegum present, alcohol is not. Fantastic balance, dynamic. This is really awesome.

Pours a medium amber with a nice 2 fingers of off-white head in my tulip glass. Nose is lemony and grassy with a bit of a toasty, biscuity note. Taste has bitter grapefruit and grass notes from the hops and a bit of a subdued roasted malt backbone to round it out. Creamy, medium body. Nice hop forward IPA from my old city!

One of the best East Coast IPAs I?ve had. In addition to the perfectly hopped flavor, it has a freshing, hoppy scent with a hint of Christmas tree. So beautiful in a glass, you can?t resist drinking it!

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Draught: Pours to a light amber colored body, medium white head. Aroma is strong hops: grapefruit, wet grass, and a touch of light malt. Flavor is chewy hops upfront (grapefruit, pine), with a strong bitterness that lasts through the finish, which is also grapefruit hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. My first beer from this brewery since leaving DC years ago, and this is fantastic.

Darwenus (562) - Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2013
The appearance and aroma are standard IPA stuff; cloudy copper color, big foamy head, and a lot of pine and floral hops in the aroma. The flavor is outstanding. The hops hit first and hit hard, and at the finish there is a really rich, smooth, buttery malt that gives this thing outstanding balance. Compares favorably to Bells Two Hearted and the better Hoppin’ Frog IPAs.
