Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Cans from the brewery. A small amount of hops, heavy on malt in the scent. Heavy on the tongue and not as easy to drink as many other Columbus heavy IPAs I have tried. Decent beer, but heavy on the malt and heavy to drink for the IPA. Decent, but nothing to search out.

Enjoying this in a pint glass at the American Tap Room in the Washington Reagan (DCA) Airport.

L: copper, burnt orange with a 1 finger foamy white head

S: There isn't much of a smell. The only weakness to this beer in my opinion. There's a light pine scent, but very subtle.

T: Explosion of fruits and hops, dank and resiny with some pine. Best part about the beer, and that's why we drink right?

F: Foamy, medium-bodied with a little more than average on carbonation. Well balanced mouthfeel.

O: A very good local beer. I would definitely drink this again. Cheers!

Look: Pretty reddish copper. Darker than I expected. Small off-white head.

Smell: Lots of fresh hops.

Taste: Flavorful. Not too bitter. Excellent balance. I'm not used to actually tasting malt in an IPA.

Feel: Medium bodied. Slightly sticky.

Overall: Great IPA. I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn't a hop bomb.

Orange / amber in color with nice fluffy head, but after that it s just average. Some nice astringent hops in the flavor, aroma seems almost sour. Malt and hops, with some tart hoppiness on the finish.
