Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: akorsak on 05-21-2011

The Corruption™ IPA is DC Brau's take on a Pacific Northwest IPA. Brewed with Pale 2 row, C-10, Honey and Victory malts. Exclusively hopped with 40 lbs of Columbus hops per brew to ring in at 80 IBU. "The Corruption" comes in at 6.5% ABV. This beer straddle's the line between IPA and Imperial IPA and has a supportive malty backbone with an assertive hop presence that smacks your mouth with a dank, resinous bitterness followed by pleasant aroma's of pine sap and burnt spruce.

A bright, intense, very hoppy IPA. Delicious.

Enormous bite of grapefruit and lemon in this IPA! Murky and otherwise unimpressive appearance, classic but restrained aroma. Flavor is all citrus pulp and peel.

Long semi dry finish. Oily coating refreshes with each sip.

A small pour at a tasting from a keg. It had very little aroma. It was an average IPA.

It's solid. I was expecting big things after the aromas.
