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!

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 18, 2012
On draught at Washington Hilton. Pours a dense amber color with a long lasting white lace and head. Big hoppy aroma. Medium body. Mild maltiness with dominating hop flavor balance and moderate but solid bitterness. Cleaner than most New England IPAs and less citrusy than most West Coast IPAs. Not bad.

Pours deep dark gold into a shaker. Off-white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Pine and grapefruit aromas. Well balanced with sweet caramel upfront turning to pine and citrus in the lasting bitter finish.

Solid IPA. Not much else to say about it. Made in DC, so thatís pretty cool. As far as I can tell, itís one of 3 breweries in DC, so itís nice to see they can make a decent beer to style. Definitely the AMERICAN style of IPA.

Can from a friend. Nice amber pour with a cream head. Nose I lightly grapefruit, melon, tropical, and clightly floral. Very smooth on the palate, florals and tropical fruits, backed with a light sweetness and a very nice finish.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2013
Hazy amber pour strong piney hop aroma. Fizzy and not too heavy. Probably the best canned ipa Iíve ever had.

Kinz (3696) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
This gets my DC rating back, thank you very much. Also keeps with the can thing I have going on today. Pours a medium hazy orange amber, good head. Failed to remember that just because it comes from a can, it doesnít mean there canít be crap at the bottom. So I have a huge pile of "extras" floating around in here. Grapefruit and citrus and pine aroma, slight caramel. Flavor matches the aroma. A very solid IPA. Nicely done. Earns the standard "solid IPA score" of 3.8.

nuplastikk (5612) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Freshly tapped at PPGT. Unfiltered orange copper body. Steady off-white/beige head. Dry and toasty, quite a nice IPA. Steady dry hop character, bold and full bodied. Well balanced. Filling, rich, well done.

McNeillR (2142) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Vibrant orange, sandy ringed head. Powerful pine nose. Well worn up front malt with a sturdy bitter platform, sultry sweetness. Lip tingling grapefruit finish. Tight hop burn in the linger. Maybe too much of a hoppy singe too early on, thread of steely bitter.

Emeister84 (1945) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Aromas of citrus fruit and orange peel. Hazy orange with a white head. Dry, bitter, and spicy. Medium bodied, prickly, and with a hop forward finish.
