Epic / DC Brau Brainless: Corruption

Brewed by Epic Brewing Company (UT/CO)
Salt Lake City, Utah USA
6.2% Belgian Ale | 41 Ratings | Special Release |
Brainless® Belgian just got corrupted with hops! Brainless®: Corruption is our second collaboration beer with DC Brau (the first was Fermentation w/o Representation). DC Brau and Epic, both honored with invitations to SAVOR(SM), will be serving this beer in Washington DC as a celebratory beverage during the craft beer and food event in June. We brewed our award winning Brainless® Belgian Golden Ale and let DC Brau corrupt it with four types of hops, including the fruity Citra in the dry hop. Brainless®: Corruption starts out with a wonderful aroma of pineapple, hops and tart fruit. On first sip you taste that familiar cotton-candy and bubble gum sweetness of Brainless® that quickly gives way to a hoppy storm of tropical fruit and tart citrus that lingers on the tongue. Note: the only way to identify this beer is near the ABV marking where is says Corruption.
