Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

DC Brau Corruption is an IPA with a wonderful complex aroma and a simple, bitter malty flavour. I wish there was more to the flavour. I remember it being better when I've had it before so maybe I'll buy some more and re-review it another time.

A: Cloudy orange colour and a decent head that fades quite quickly. 3.5

S: Fragrant hops. Floral and a little sweet. Wonderful. 4.5

T: Malty with bitterness and a little sweetness. Fresh and crisp, but there isn't as much hop flavour as I expected (or wanted)... just malt and bitterness. Maybe this is psychological, but I think I can taste aluminium. 3.5

M: A little flat. 3

O: 3

Serving type: can
