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!

12 ounce can thanks to nimbleprop. Pours a densely hazy copper with a big white head of foam. Splotchy lacing. The aroma has notes of grapefruit and some lighter grassy notes. The taste is more on the sweeter side with what I would call an herbal, grapefruity bitterness kicking in about mid-palate. Dries out in the finish to leave a mild bitterness lingering on the tongue.

Prufrockstar (1500) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Draft at ChurchKey. Clear amber pour, nice offwhite head, good retention and lacing. Big fruity hop aroma, accented by pine and more grapefruit. Taste: reasonably dry, assertively bitter finish. Just enough sweetness to keep it balanced. Medium body, oily texture. Really quite nice, much better than I recall from the can that was shared months ago.

Location: On tap at Churchkey, 6/12/11

Aroma: This beer has a rather hoppy aroma made up mostly of resin and pine
Appearance: It pours a clear orange color with a thick and foamy white head and lot of lace
Flavor: The flavor is rather hoppy, some sweetness and a biting hop finish, it is resiny throughout
Palate: This one is kind of sticky, it is medium bodied, and it has a fairly soft carbonation
Overall Impression: It is very exciting to me, as someone who was a long time resident of the area, to see DC get a new brewery. Now if this brewery produces other beers as good as their IPA, they will quickly and easily become the best brewery in DC (not that it is all that difficult). Well done DC Brau! Very nice IPA, and welcome to the DC beer scene!
