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.

Pours a deep amber orange with a decent dense foam yellowish head. Moderate carbonation. Nice aroma of sugary grapefruit and resinous pine with mild malty background. Bitter in the mouth, the taste is a combination of syrupy malt and pine resin that isn't the best blend but ok. Somewhat of a hop-smack (80 IBUs) but the malt keeps it in check. Not enough hop flavors, just the bitter notes.
