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.

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.
