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!

Amber color beer with a lot of suspended particles in it. Fluffy yellowish head. Bright fresh citrus hop nose. Chewy hop bitterness with lots of red grapefruit, apricot, hop resin and some grass. Long pinching hop bitterness. There is enough coarse bread maltiness and a hint of caramel sweetness to provide some balance. My only problem with canned beer is that I canít see the sediment when I pour the beer.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2016 On tap at Beacon DC. Dark amber with a small cap. Strong bitter aroma. The same goes for taste. Taste a bit sharp with some hidden citrus notes. Bitter aftertaste

Gluepot (358) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
On tap at the Churchkey, DC. A dark copper/gold body topped by a thin white head. The nose is like an astringent East Coast IPA with a dank pineyness thrown in for good measure. Up front there are some nice IPA elements here - tangerine, grapefruit rind, molasses and roasted malt. I like rindy IPAs but there is something a little unpleasant going on here. I wonít be back for another

Can. Pours Amber with thin off white head. Aroma is Sweet malty and hoppy pine. Taste is sweet malty toffee like hops with a dank piney finish. I like it.

Translucent copper with persistent white head. Lots of resinous pine. Caramel malt. On the bitter end of balance for sure. Clean and well-made.

OldMrCrow (2318) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Can at some shitty corporate Italian place in Crystal City, VA (or MD? Fuck, I donít know.)

Wasnít particularly in the mood for an IPA but I wanted to recover the DC tick that was stolen from me when Capitol City moved its operations out of DC proper. Aggressively c-hopped IPA with plenty of caramel malt. Yeah, think 2005. Is this what passes for good beer on the East Coast?

PapaSkeetSkeet (1007) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Golden-orange, thin eggshell head, film that stays. Aroma is strong lemony evergreen (refreshing), toasted malt, touch of light caramel and grapefruit, hint of tropical fruit (passion fruit). Body is medium-light, oily, with some gritty texture, moderate coarseness and soft in carbonation. Flavor is bitter pine, nutty pine nuts, slightly astringent, citrus rind. Quite astringent after a while. Overall: too harsh/bitter, otherwise a good pine-oriented IPA.

deyholla (9716) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Can thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear deep amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a musty grains with an earthy grass and a bit of a pine bite coming through. Flavor is similar with lots earthy grains, musty pine, some grass and a bit of bitterness.

thepatrickman (598) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 17, 2016
Good IPA with some somewhat interesting citrus and pine aromas. Overall, though, it just struck me as straightforward and drinkable, an IPA that Iíd be happy to drink at a bar or a ballpark without thinking too much about it.

BlackHaddock (5756) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Cheers Gene for leaving a 355ml can. Shared on 26th Jan 2016 at a Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting. Misty dull orange body, off-white head. Piny hops all the way with this beer, dominate both the nose and taste. Some citrus notes also within the flavour.
