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.

Bottled on 05/03/13 and poured into a snifter on 05/12/13! How fresh can you get?

A: Orange/Gold hue with two fingers of head. The head disappears quite quickly to a thin layer. Excellent lacing.

S: I categorize this beer as a part of "Hop-blast" IPAs. :-) When I first opened it, I could smell the hops right away, with grapefruit, piney, and floral notes. Interesting aroma to say at the least.

T: Marvelous taste of malts and hops working together, could pick up hints of caramel, pineapple, and citrus flavors. Sweetness comes at first and follows out with a subtle bitterness. The bitterness will remain awhile at the end.

M: Right in the between of medium-bodied and full-bodied. For that reason, I thought I was drinking DIPA? Medium carbonation and gives it an excellent dry finish.

O: I was lucky to get a super-fresh can and consider this a great IPA with attributes of DIPA. I do wonder what OTWOA would taste like in comparison of this outstanding IPA. Definitely will be picking up another six-pack in the near future!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a can into a clear plastic glass. Purchased for $3.25.

A refreshing balanced brew. An excellent representation of the IPA style. Lighter taste but not a session beer. In a can at a great price. A really good beer that I would buy again. Proud to have these in my cellar and serve to my friends. Highly recommended.

A - Amber color with a small dense light tan head that dissipates to a thin layer, which then remains throughout beer. Nice lacing.

S - Piney and floral aromas dominate, with some slight fruity sweetness.

T - Slightly sweet, a nice hoppy/malty balance, finishing with a bitter resinous that is not overwhelming. No malty dark fruit or the like.

MF - Slight sharpness but generally smooth.
