Corruption is Epic's second collaboration beer with DC Brau (the first was Fermentation w/o Representation). Epic brewed a batch of Brainless Belgian Golden Ale and let DC Brau corrupt it with four types of hops. Chinook and CTZ in the boil with more CTZ for aroma. Whole leaf Centennial in the hopback and Citra in the dry hop. The result is a spicy/tropical IPA.
Pours a murky orange color with two thick fingers of white head. The nose is of citrus hops, mango, tropical fruit, pine hops, and fruity malts. The taste starts with piney and citrus hops. Estery yeast, mango notes and fruity malts come next with, pineapple, peach and orange peel rounding out the end. It finishes bitter and reasonably dry. 6.2% abv
DC Brau and Epic, have both been honored with invitations to SAVOR, will be serving this beer in Washington DC as a celebratory beverage during the craft beer and food event in June.
Brainless Corruption is bottled in the standard Brainless Belgian bomber. The only indicator that beer is the "corruption" version is the print on the date/batch area of the bottle.
This beer is an EXTREMELY LIMITED release, so only 2 bottles per customer. Only available at the brewery!
