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.

12oz Can to Pint Glass

Appearance: Rich/Deep Copper. Light tan head that pours two fingers thick.

Smell: Rich sweet malts, followed by strong columbus hop wollop. Complex, almost leans toward the imperial side.

Taste: Grassy, and piney from the generous hops and IBU's. Nice bit of carbonation. Fairly bitter at 80 IBU's and has a healthy hop bite. I thought the malts were nice and sweet on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Slightly carbonated/effervescent.

Overall: Pretty tasty, all in all. IMO it leans toward the imperial side but has the ABV of a traditional AIPA. Would recommend to any of you IPA drinkers out there who like the west coast style.
