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.

12oz Can to Pint Glass

Appearance: Rich/Deep Copper. Light tan head that pours two fingers thick.

Smell: Rich sweet malts, followed by strong columbus hop wollop. Complex, almost leans toward the imperial side.

Taste: Grassy, and piney from the generous hops and IBU's. Nice bit of carbonation. Fairly bitter at 80 IBU's and has a healthy hop bite. I thought the malts were nice and sweet on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Slightly carbonated/effervescent.

Overall: Pretty tasty, all in all. IMO it leans toward the imperial side but has the ABV of a traditional AIPA. Would recommend to any of you IPA drinkers out there who like the west coast style.

Poured from the can into an imperial pint glass.

Appearance: deep orange/rust color. A bulbous head with very intricate lacing on this unfiltered ale.

Smell: delicious! Big citrus, fresh Christmas tree, and a touch of sweet biscuits.

Taste: A new favorite? A perfect balance of big, earthy hops and robust malt.

Mouthfeel: Syrup... there is so much going on in that can, it simply envelops your cake hole. Don't plan on drinking anything AFTER this one.

Overall: I love this beer! I waited forever to try it, but now that I have I make sure I always have it in the house. Yes, it's that good!

Thanks DC Brau!

I had this on tap at DCA, my first offering from these guys. The color...is prototypical IPA golden-orange. Excellent lacing. The flavor was ok...not as much citrus as is usually like. Better than average IPA.
