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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Golden orange. Hazy with a nice white head and nice lacing.

Smell - Very musty. Piney and resinous. Not the best hop aroma.

Taste - Very musty again. Pine and resin. Sweet malt. Bitterness takes over quickly.

Mouthfeel - Bitter, medium bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Nothing impressive. Drinkable and decently hoppy.
