The nation’s capital and corruption often go hand in hand. In this case, The Corruption belongs in your hand or a glass. This award-winning beer uses a combination of Pale 2 Row, C-10, Honey Malt and Victory Malt with Columbus hops.

Available year round in 12oz cans, draft and nitro.

Corruption IPA opens with pleasant aromas of pine sap and burnt spruce that pay homage to its Northwest inspiration. Modest flavors of toffee and sweet malt tease the tongue before 2lbs/barrel of Columbus hops overtake the palate with a torrent of resinous pine and notes of grapefruit zest. The malt backbone reemerges to temper the finish with lingering pine notes that leave the mouth watering for more of the pleasing copper-colored elixir.

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.
