Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: akorsak on 05-21-2011

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.

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.

A: Dark amber in color. Somewhat cloudy. Forms a large off-white head. Good retention. Copious lacing.

S: Fairly aromatic. Strong scent of pine and a little pine resin. Grapefruit to a lesser extent.

T: Similar to the nose. Moderate malt backbone. Some caramel malts, but not at all sweet. Hops come on strong, with flavors of pine, pine resin, and grapefruit. Earthy and somewhat woody with some herbal notes on the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Appropriate carbonation. Strong bitterness.

O: A pretty damn good IPA. Not the best out there, but a very respectable East Coast style IPA.
