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.

355ml Can as a gift brought back from Virignia, USA:
Hazy orange/amber with a 0.5cm foamy, white head that holds well initially with little movement before eventually turning patchy.

Medium strength hops & bitterness consisting mainly of pine & cedar with some sweetness & lighter malts too, giving the beer a nice balance. Some citrus & juicy fruits start to come through towards the end but the aroma could have been a little stronger.

Pine & citrus hops with quite a bitter taste but there is also floral flavours. The sweetness isn't as strong but thankfully the taste was more pronounced with some caramel/sweet malts & grapefruit. Quite nice but I was expecting a more hop filled taste that.

Smooth with a medium body & good carbonation, naturally quite bitter but it's not too strong with a dry finish & a crisp, sharp bite as well.

My 2nd DC Brau & it's another good one. I'd been told this offering was quite disappointed but I found it nice & easy to drink, the nose could have been a bit stronger but it was still and good beer & would probably be one I'd go back to now and again if it were readily available in the UK.

Picked up a six pack at Wegman's in Downingtown.

This one has a pretty decent shot of bitterness and pine. It has a pretty good body that offsets all that bitterness to a degree but it still lingers long after the last gulp is down the throat. There's also some syrupy malt that lingers on the back of the tongue after the bitterness has faded but I don't really know if that's the beer or that I got it at a supermarket. All told, it was ok but I wouldn't reach over something like Overgrown to grab this again.
