COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light session beer with an heroic amount of hop flavor and aroma.

On tap at the brewpub; an outstanding treat. Light-bodied, and almost uninteresting malt, but the hops demand attention. Not overly hopped (compare Burning River--this beer tasted less bitter) but the hops are extraordinarily complex. Almost skunky, not in a bad way, but in an evolving, complex way, herbaceous, suggesting the aroma of marijuana or various bitter garden herbs like rue. Light enough to knock back on a hot day, but this is a sipping beer, complex to the last drop. A rather strange experience but I recommend it.

Sampled on tap at the brewhouse. A nicely well crafted brew with a mild hop palate and smooth malts.

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was fruit notes, hop character. Sessionable and enjoyable.

Travlr (10035) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. When Carl the Manager gave me this beer, I told him I had the only truth and justice ever seen in Washington, D.C. He told me, "Don’t worry, we also have plenty of (DC Brau) Corruption.". Haha. Hazy amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of bright fruit. Taste is bitter fruit. Good.

On tap at the Cleveland brewpub on August 10th. Poured much darker than I was expecting, especially given the "light" designation. It was pretty good, some good malt notes while not overdoing it. Very sessionable with the low ABV and went well with my sandwich.
