Purchased a 6 pack of corruption in CT on my way home. Not knowing anything about this beer, I was going on a whim.
A: Darker than expected. Orange, ruby grapefruit. Decent head retention.
S: At first when the beer was cold, there was not much aroma besides a faint piney and bready smell. As the beer warms, the aroma really opens up. Grapefruit, grass, pine, very light citrus and heavy malt.
T: I must say, the taste profile is odd, but somehow has won me over and made me a fan of this beer. Most IPAs, you get huge hop forwards backed by malt backbones. This IPA, opens up with a huge front of malt. Caramel, biscut, crystal. Next comes the hops. And they shine. Not much grapefruit on the taste as I expected from the nose, but the pine, citrus and grassy notes are wonderful and perfectly accentuated to balance the huge malt forwardness of the beer.
M: Pretty heavy and bitter for an AIPA. Not a bad thing.
O: This beer exceeded expectations. I will be trying other DC Brau offerings soon. Recommended. Would love them to put a born on/best by date though. Not sure how fresh this is. Seems fresh, but may not be as fresh as I think considering the huge malt forward.
Serving type: can
