BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Millstream Brewing Company
Iowa, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
India Pale Ale's are turning into hoppy monsters, but our Iowa Pale Ale is more mild and about balance. It has enough bitterness to match the maltiness provided by the pale malt base and gets its citrus zing from extensive dry-hopping with Cascade hops. This beer was first made in a few small batches as a summer seasonal in 2003. The response was so incredibly positive that is has worked its way into a year round beer and became a favorite to many.

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber orange in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that quickly died down, leaving a small patch of bubbles in the center, a collar around the edge, and a thin layer of bubbles on the surface in between.


S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with strong notes of caramel malts.


T: The taste has flavors of biscuit and caramel malts along with notes of citrusy hops, the latter of which contribute a light amount of bitterness.


M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The hops contribute a slight amount of bitterness.


O: This beer is easy to drink and has a very good balance between the malts and hops. It’s almost like an English IPA.
