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 from six pack purchased in the greater Washington D.C. area (no birth date), poured into a 3Fs Teku long-stemmed glass, drank 2/7/13 over ~one hour.

A: 4.75 - orange/marmalade-honey coloration, full hop haze, whitish frothy 1 finger head that lingers into an attractive rim lacing, mild-to-no alcohol legs

S: 4.5 - classic all-purpose Columbus combination of pine/resin/spice meets citrus fruit (grapefruit, orange and tangerine), mild malt backbone with minimal yeast flavors (likely 1056 or WP001) that permits the hops to flourish

T: 4.5 - bitterness on the anterior tongue opens the taste buds to reveal slightly grassy and herbal flavors, mild astringency but very pleasant lingering bitterness, slight-to-no alcohol flavors for me

M: 4.75 - light-medium-to-medium body allows it to land on the IPA instead of DIPA side of the fence, medium carbonation, one of the best mouthfeel out there for style

O: 4.75 - I am so spoiled having easy access to this world-class all-Columbus IPA in my backyard. DC Brau nails it with their hop-forward offerings, and this is the Silver medal only to On the Wings of Armageddon, which might be the best East Coast DIPA this side of Heady Topper; Columbus might be my favorite all-purpose hop and this beer accentuates its pleasant bittnerness, complexity and flavor/aroma. It's dangerously sessionable and outstanding with pizza and spicy food (Indian, Thai). In summary, this is a top 10 American IPA for lovers of PW hopbomb IPAs like Victory's HopDevil and Surly's Furious that I'd be happy to trade ([email protected])
