I haven’t had the Iowa IPA yet but the Imperial Red is a fine oak aged brew. The following comes from Madhouse Brewings’ newsletter!
2012 Holiday Release Party

Jasper Winery in Des Moines
This is the official Release Party for our 2012 Iowa Hops IPA. This beer is made with 100% locally grown Cascade and Centennial hops. This beer comes in at 7.5% alc. and 65 IBU with tons of piney and citrus hop aroma.
There will be free beer and wine samples, and as well as free food provided by Gusto Pizza Co. and Taste to Go. Live music provided by Brian Congdon and DJ Brodacious. The first 100 people to arrive will receive either a free Madhouse pint glass or Jasper corkscrew. All wine and beer will be 25% off cases the night of the event only!
Oak Aged Imperial Red
Madhouse Venture Series
A second batch of Imperial Red will be bottled and ready this week. This beer has been very popular, and is currently in stores. Our Oak Aged Imperial Red has intriguing aromas of oak and mocha. Creamy malt flavors of caramel and chocolate create a complex flavor balanced with hop bitterness. If you haven’t tried this beer yet, it is highly recommended.
