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.

I had heard mixed things about the Corruption and after it hit the MD market I was eager to try it myself. DC Brau has a great image, they're cool guys, and On the Wings was a solid double IPA. However, I remain completely unimpressed by this beer. It was nice looking, sure. No frothy head, but sticky lacing all the way down, nice bronzed color, an initial burst of hops and sweet malts upon opening the can, but I could not get over the vegetal flavor. The bitterness struck me as harsh, the taste vegetal, and both only grew as the beer warmed. Maybe I'm getting old beers, but I live about 30 minutes from DC and since the beer has only recently hit the market, most stores have a hard time keeping it on the shelves. This is not something I'll seek out again.
