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.

Simple review, on tap:

Nice clear orange-golden pour with nice sustaining head and lacing.
Smell of Citra mostly, with a pine presence
West Coast style, the malt flavor touches the front of the tongue and is whisked roughly away by the pine/grass landslide that covers the back of the tongue.
The beer could use a little more balance, for me, and feels just a tad thin. However, if you like the west coast hop bombs, try a fresh one of these and see what you think.

Appearance - rich copper color, two finger width foamy head, great retention as well. just what an IPA should look like.

Smell - quite mellow, but I find some hints of citrus hops at the end

Taste - you get a lot more citrus hops than you smell from this one. nice malt build at the end for a nice finish

Mouthfeel - the maltiness from the end lingers in your mouth for quite a bit, but I enjoyed it

Overall - glad I got to try this one from a trade.
