Judging from the description on the bottle, the grain wasn't really grown in Iowa, just the hops. Tasted while watching the Swedish version of The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo. I traded Jean (one of the owners of both Madhouse and Jasper) at Madhouse Brewery's temporary Tasting room at Jasper's Winery for this with a couple of GRB beers.
Mouthfeel: Medium to lighter bodied and easy drinking. I find the carbonation to be absolutely perfect to draw out the bittering units, while not overpowering the tongue and making it bite. A dry resinous coat spreads over the palate but not to overwhelm the ever prominent malt bill. Some stickiness, but minimal.
Overall Impression: I find this to be a great basic American IPA. It stands tall and emits a fantastic hop nose and palate. I think this is definitely a bitter beer, but one that changes throughout the tasting session. To start, its quite neutral, but as the palate adjust, the beer warms, and the carbonation settles, it blossoms into a fruitfully hop dosed beer with endless complexity. One could easily perceive a grapefruit and orange juice character. Very drinkable and refreshing while still retaining its malt backbone. A sipper and a sitter.
