12 oz can, purchased @ brewery... Poured into Goblet... This is one of my usual go to session beers... happy to review a daily hitter...
A- Hazy orange/copper hew, Definitely looks like some hop haze in there, rich fluffy white head, that persists...
S -Definitely pull that columbus Hop aroma, Dank, Resin, Getting some biscuity/bready malt under tones in the background.
T- follows the aroma... Dank,Dank,Dank from the columbus hops.... Hop dense Resin followed by a solid malt backbone, subtle sweetness at the back on the tongue yet more hop forward at the beginning... Refreshing and brisk...
M- moderate carbonation, filling, yet conservatively session-able, dry finish.
Overall- Definitely a solid staple beer... This is one of my go to session work outside / chill with the guys beers... This to me is an outstanding beer 2-3 days out of the brewery, DC Brau is putting out some great brews... I enjoy the benefit of being in there back yard, and drinking this beer routinely only days fresh...

12oz. can from a 6-pack purchased at the DC Brau brewery.
A: Cloudy orange with a little soapy head. Great retention and lacing.
S: Piney hops dominate, a little bit of citrus and bready malt.
T: Similar to the aroma. Really nice hop flavors in this one.
M: Very dry IPA. Could use a little more sweetness and carbonation to balance it out.
O: I enjoyed this one, and I love to support the local brewery. I think with some tweaks they could have something special here.

This beer has a kickass bitterness. It's too much for my tastes truthfully. I drank this out of the can at the Black Cat nightclub in DC. I just averaged the scores for appearance and smell from my other scores because of this. It said you can have it out of the can on the side, so it's okay! The mouthfeel is great, just the right amount of carbonation with a medium heaviness. The taste is good but too intense for me.

DC Brau Corruption is an IPA with a wonderful complex aroma and a simple, bitter malty flavour. I wish there was more to the flavour. I remember it being better when I've had it before so maybe I'll buy some more and re-review it another time.
A: Cloudy orange colour and a decent head that fades quite quickly. 3.5
S: Fragrant hops. Floral and a little sweet. Wonderful. 4.5
T: Malty with bitterness and a little sweetness. Fresh and crisp, but there isn't as much hop flavour as I expected (or wanted)... just malt and bitterness. Maybe this is psychological, but I think I can taste aluminium. 3.5
M: A little flat. 3

12 oz can poured into a nonic.
Pours a very cloudy orange with huge chunks of yeast swirling around in the glass. One finger of sticky foam. Aroma is nicely hoppy, piney, sweet resin.
First sip is... quite bitter, body a bit on the thin side. Lots of pine hop flavor with a sticky mouthfeel. Malt sweetness is buried behind the hops. Long lingering bitter aftertaste, but not overly harsh.
I was a bit turned off at first by the chunky yeast swirling around in this brew, but the beer surprised me - it is a remarkably good IPA. Glad I stumbled upon this one.

Can to Parra Tulip
No canning date
Thanks to my brother in law for this one
App- A darker glowing orange with a yellow tinge and a bit of wheat gold scattered throughout the beer. Had a nice 1-1/2" head with a semi decent amount of cling.
Smell- Smell is much better than the 1st two beers I had from DC. Had more rich citrus with a good hoppy backbone and a tinge of fuller malts on the nose. A bit thick with a little bit of white pepper and wheat.
Taste- The citrus is gone from the aroma and is a big thick beer. The beer drinks bigger than the listed 6.5%. Its a decent beer. So far the beers from DC have been decent but nothing earth shattering.
Mouth- Thicker medium body with a thick carbonation level. Strong malts with a citrus zest residual flavor. Quite a strong ABV residual flavor.
Drink- Again. So far the 3 that I have had have been meh. Noses are better than flavors. Glad I got the state ticks, but if I trade for DC. I think will be for OTWOA.

12oz CAN, lugged 2800 miles west by "blackie"
appearance: hazy orange body, big fluffy white head with nice sticky lace. nice.
smell: resiny, grapefruit rind, bready, caramel. strongly hopped.
taste: citrusy - grapefruit rind, sugar, pine resin, floral with herbal notes. This passes the self-proclaimed "NW IPA" test - good stuff
mouthfeel: lingering bitterness, smooth body
overall: good - look out San Diego, DC is coming... (sarcasm)

Another brew received from Kmccabe33.. Thanks a ton Korey!!
Poured into my thin tulip... great retention and lacing.. the brew is hazy light amber...
The aroma is pretty much identical to the pale ale with a bigger citrus punch...
Flavor again... the same as the pale with a looong and lingering bitter bite and more of a citrus hoppiness... the bitterness is a bit abrasive... gets coarse on the finish.
body and carbonation are fine with a sorta creamy small bubble carbonation.
Unbalanced bitterness.. odd... okay, but needs dialed in and probably the maltiness pulled back to allow the hops to shine.
