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.

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.

12oz can in a nonic.

Deep orange-copper color, reddish even, with a sturdy 1F linen white head. Ring and web lacing. Pretty.

Citrus, floral and pine hops with toasted malt aromas. Slightly sweet caramel.

Citrus and earthy pine hop flavors with some crisp malt, toasty and caramel.

Silky smooth medium body feel. Good carbonation. Dry hop tang finish with a lasting bite.

A very good solid brew. Hoppy yet not a bitter bomb. Nicely balanced and drinkable.
