Corrosion by Cape May Brewing Company is a Kettle-soured IPA and was judged as a Mixed-Fermentation Sour Beer (BJCP sub-style 28B).

It poured brilliant gold and very slightly cloudy into the glass, where it formed a moderate white head with moderate to poor retention, which was not unexpected for the style. Its aroma featured both a sour lemon/citrus and a sweeter mango/tropical fruit hop nose. The flavor profile paralleled the aroma, which masked the underlying malt base but did feature a little non-fruity hop bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel included a light body, modest carbonation, little or no alcohol warmth and just a bit of hop astringency with a refreshingly sour palate coating in the finish. This non-traditional IPA’s drinkability is high and should appeal to drinkers that are tired of bitterly over-hopped and/or high gravity IPAs who enjoy refreshing sour beers.
