Brewed by:
DC Brau Brewing Co.
District of Columbia, United States

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.

Thanks to sulli520 for this. Canned Sept. 23, 2014.

A good mix of cedar & pine in the flavor; bitterness is low lying but always creeping around. Starts with a bang before tapering off some and is very dry. Overall a nice IPA.

Decent but I didn't get that fresh flavor at all. Prefer Union Jack at a similar price point.
