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.

A- A murky pale amber with some golden highlights around the edges. Lots of carbonation bubbles floating up from the bottom. Creamy tan head that stays around for awhile.

S- Floral and piney hops, biscuity malt aromas. Pretty balanced aroma.

T- Lots of biscuity malts give way to some piney and earthy hop flavors. A definite hop presence, but this one is pretty balanced.

M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, somewhat coating and resinous.

O- A pretty good balanced IPA offering with some different qualities. The malts really come through a lot and would be nice for those looking for a malty IPA.

Can > Mason Pint

A - Pours a cloudy amber color, two finger of dense off white head, thick lacing.
S - Aroma isnt really strong, but you get some big dankness up front, pine, a little toasted caramel, but the really strong dank aroma to this is pretty good.
T - Follows up with the aroma, big huge dank pine and hop resin, then you get some sweetness, toasted caramel, biscuit, a little orange zest.
M - Medium body, dry on the finish.
O - Very dank IPA, but very good, having this in can as a year round is a good idea. Definitely good for summer outside activities, but not really sessionable.
