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.

consumed a number of times in a number of formats - this time a six pack of cans from WFM

a: served in a mason jar pint, deep honey amber in color, topped with a full finger of off-white head that falls back to a smattering of lingering carbonation

s: nose immediately hits with loads of smooth, juicy tropical fruits - grapefruit, orange, passionfruit - and more acidic pungent green pine, supportive caramel malt backbone offers a slightly toasted sugar sweetness while maintaining a clean base on which the hops can shine, smells great

m: carbonation around medium and quite smooth, light-medium body with a nice weight, but easily sippable

t: deliciously blended hop flavors of bright, sweet tropicals - grapefruit, passionfruit - and pungent young pine, moderate caramel malts - sweet but very clean - run until about midway before bowing out to an assertive, growing bitterness, lots of steeped hop pulp flavor lingering, dig it

o: a top-notch IPA - no way around that, surprised it doesn’t get more love, fantastic hop profile with a grain body that’s flavorful, clean, and respectful of the hops role as lead

A: This poured a murky gold with a little white head.
S: It smelled like bitter grapefruit and resin, with some unripe apricot and herbal hops and honey malt.
T: It tasted like bitter resin and herbal hops, with some grapefruit and a bit of honey malt. It had a clean and lasting very bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a nice IPA, with great scent and good taste, but only ok body. The finish was pretty harsh, so it wasn't super easy to drink. Not bad, but not great.

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.
