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.

12 oz can poured into snifter

A: very slight haze nice amber color very little head

S: Very earthy piney hops almost a little pepper

T: lots of that very earthy hop taste with some malt on the end to erase bitterness very floral and herbal

M: not bad medium to lighter almost seems a little watery

O: This isn't bad I wouldn't go out of my way to have it again very reminiscent of The Bissell Brothers The Substance. I would definitely drink it again if I came across it though it's refreshing.

I picked this one up on a trade. I would like to try the big boy from this brewery sometime. Cheers man for sending this one my way!

Appearance: Nice hazy copper color. Decent amount of white head that dissipates to a lingering layer of lacing.

Aroma: Some floral hops, not very pungent but present. Malts are not too strong either. It is a very floral forward beer with a mild amount of citrus and tropical fruit notes.

Taste: Clean and crisp are the first two things I would say about this beer. Not a huge amount of flavor. It tastes like a light IPA. Not a bad thing if that is what they were going for. I could definitely see myself tossing back a few of these on a hot day! Its very accessible and I can give it points for that. This would be a good gateway IPA for those IPA haters you know!

Overall: Solid beer. A little bit watered down but not bad really. I enjoyed it and I would like to try others from this brewery!

Had a pint on tap at the Crystal City Sports Bar in Arlington, VA. Excellent all-around Brew with a wonderful hop/malt balance.
