A new collaboration from the team at Migration Brewing is hitting the taps at all three locations in Portland. On this new effort, Migration Brewing has teamed up with local roasters, Good Coffee on the new draft only Coffee IPA.
Coffee IPA is a light golden IPA featuring a malt base that allows for the complex coffee flavor to take the spotlight. There are notes of bright berries and undertones of tropical fruit and citrus in this new IPA that sits at 7.5% ABV and 45 IBUs.
“Our first coffee IPA release happened many years ago, and it was a knockout,” said Mike Branes, Co-Founder and Head Brewer at Migration Brewing, in a statement. “Since then, especially because of our true love of coffee, we’ve been on the hunt for the right partner to work with in taking another step forward for coffee IPAs. Good Coffee delivers the goods, with amazing coffee, workplace culture, and inspiring people on their team.”
In brewing Coffee IPA, the team at Migration dry hopped and enriched the beer with cold-brewed Costa Rican Finca Calle Liles from Good Coffee Company. The synergy of hop and coffee components makes for an awesome combination.
“The partnership with Migration just made too much sense, given their ethos, commitment to community, and the outstanding beer they’re consistently making,” noted Sam Purvis from Good Coffee, in a statement. “We’re super proud of the unique and powerful flavor of this beer.”
Coffee IPA is on tap at Migration Brewing’s Glisan Pub, Gresham Pub, and Williams Pub.
