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.

Pretty good ipa that is sappy, piney, hoppy with a sizable malt backbone that provides some welcome balance. I get some grapefruit pith too. Deep browny orange hue - a little heavier on the palette than I prefer. Full bodied beer that starts sweet but leave a blanket of resiny bitterness. This one almost drinks like a dipa.

Poured from can into tulip glass. Taste like a home brew, doesn't finish. Bitter
