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!

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

Leighton (11123) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Pours clear, rich orange with a light, creamy topping. Lightly tangy citrus with ample pine needles and grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Piney bitterness on the finish with decent malty balance. Nice.

DC Brau ventures down a worn path with its IPA. Citrus hop aroma, moderate bitterness, and malt sweetness in this medium bodied orange colored India Pale Ale. Flavors come together seemlessly and suffers no ill effects being canned.

Can. i am surprised to see this scored so highly. it is a solid beer. Grain aroma, some home. Moderate bitterness; sweet caramel, and dry finish.

Can, DOB 07/07/2014
Hazy amber color, with small head. A bit resiny, cereally, bitter, but definitively tasting like an old IPA.

mcberko (6567) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
355mL can, pours an opaque amber orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out floral hops, some resin, and light caramel bready malts. Flavour is rather murky, with muffled earthy hops and some lightly caramel bready malts. Not a very impressive IPA, too muffled and murky, with a yeasty quality. Drinkable, but not great.

At a private tasting in Belgrade/Serbia. Huge thanks to travlr. Pours cloudy light amber with a white foam. Nose of amber malts, hops, tropical fruits. Mouth: amber malty feel, a fresh brewed batch. Typical East Coast IPA. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can 07/21/14. Nose heavy pine with caramel and earth, strong dose of citrus just behind, joined finally by the most notable element, the fresh lychee! Hazy amber-orange pour with a rocky beige head. Taste semi-sweet and loaded with inoffensive resin and caramel, little bit of spice and toffee, earth. Candied lemon peel, soft spicy grain and near-wheat, light fruit but more crystal-like than yeast-driven. Touch of dough, lots of wood (pine), everything still fresh and downable, hops are assertive but don’t outstrip the malt, that’s two well-balanced IPAs in a row for me, heady times after the West Coast invasion.

Sample at Great British Beer Festival 2014. Clear golden/copper beer with almost no head. Yeasty fruity aroma, grapes, hay, bread notes. Fruity hop flavor, spicy, floral, grapes, some hay.

jrodooo5 (1026) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Very nice murky copper pour w/ a nice white head that leaves lacing. Has an awesome hop aroma that can be smelled cleared across the room! The citrus & pine notes on the nose fade into a harsh bitterness. Not that pleasant on the palate but finishes fairly smooth after the bitter burst. I can see why the hop heads love this.

AirForceHops (3223) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 31, 2014
12 oz. can carried back from the brewery from a friend. Orange / copper type color with weak head retention aroma is nice, pine hops, candy sugar and mild sweet malts.

Flavor displays herbal and piney hops with hints of dank marijuana notes toward the back end of the sip. Just enough sweet bread malts to balance the sharp lingering pine and dank notes. Pretty tasty.
