Meadowlark IPA is a new juicy and floral hoppy ale we brewed to celebrate the flavor and spirit of American craft brewing. This 7% alcohol beer has a sunny orange-gold colour, 60 International Bittering Units, a smooth mouthfeel and layers of soft flowery hops. We wove fragrant Citra and Bravo hops from the Pacific Northwest with intensely fruity Galaxy hops from Australia. The malts are English pale & crystal, flaked barley with malty highlights from Munich malt and Roast Barley. The resulting patchwork is as “American” tasting as short ribs and slaw, and provides an excellent accompaniment to that kind of food too!

deyholla (10213) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near clear light orange with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has earthy grass and earthy citrus with a touch of flora as well as a touch of sweet grains backing. Flavor has earthy citrus up front with a bit of resin and some sweet grains in the finish.

Chudwick (2842) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Bomber bottled Aug 2015 - nose is spruce and citrus. Sip adds floral elements as well as a little hay. interesting flavor but watery. surprised by the lack of pronounced bitterness. Easy to drink and dangerous because of the 7.0% ABV. latent fruitcake

Braudog (6377) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle. Medium gold, with a firm build. Pretty malty first impression, but then the woody aspects start to come forward. This is an outdoorsy adventure. (#6074, 12/12/2015)

migwell (277) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Adieu Pretty Things, you made some memorable brews! Meadowlark IPA is a good example, a very much straight down the middle American IPA, well balanced, good malt flavor, hoppy but not bitter. Big bottle poured (several times) into a tall thin tulip, which induces a pronounced and occasionally uncontrollable head in almost everything poured into it. Light amber colored, robust citrus flavor, good balance and complexity from start to finish. I’m sure I’ll be one of many buying up the remaining stock.

Quick3Beers (981) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Pours a golden amber from a bottle with a thick pillowy white head, slowly dissipating leaving lots of lacing. Nose is intensely floral with a touch of hay. Flavor is also floral, but starting to throw in a bit of fruits, like peaches in syrup kind of a thing. Sweet but not cloying, ending on a bitter note. Full mouthfeel, slightly oily but not in a bad way. Very good beer.
