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.

Poured from a 12 FL OZ can into a pint glass. DOB 07/24/2014.

Appearance: Pours a hazy cloudy orange body with a thinner off white head.

Smell: Slightly sweet and biscuity malt aroma topped off with a burst of floral citrus hops. Very nice!

Taste: Again, nice bright burst of citrusy hops! Just enough malt body to keep this from being overly thin or watery but not too much to make this taste too syrupy or malty.

Mouthfeel: Nice and light with crisp carbonation. Coats the mouth, but does not bog it down.

Overall: A damn near perfectly constructed IPA in my opinion. I think the 6.0-7.0% ABV is just right for an IPA (this one clocks in at an even 6.5% ABV.) Anything less usually comes off as "hop water" to me, while anything more sometimes becomes too much of a boozy, syrupy mess. The Corruption has the right amount of bright, citrusy hops to keep this flavorful, but not overly bitter. I really like and recommend this one - too bad I haven't seen it for less than $13-$14 a six pack.
