COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

JorisPPattyn (8434) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2013
Medium, just yellowish head with some lace, fed by finely pearling pale copper-amber beer. Very (muscat)grapey hops (beautiful!), cane sugar, exotic fruit. Maybe a tad unidimensional, but impressive all the same. Bitter-hoppy-fruity. Difficult to add more. Exotic fruit, but bit metalllic, quinine-like bitterness. Not very well-bodied; spritzy and just a bit watery. Well - it’s an outspoken IPA. If you’re looking just, for that, it’s near-perfect.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle. Yellow gold body topped by two fingers of off-white head with nice lacing and good retention. The nose is nice and bright with a citrus mix including lemon and grapefruit, a bit of pine and an underlying biscuit malt. Mildly sweet with a stronger bitterness, there are flavors of mixed citrus, pine and and herbal quality. Medium body that finishes clean with some mild bitterness. Well done.

65 cl bottle @ home, bottled 08/2012
Aroma is rather fruity with biscuits and caramel. Flavour is sweetish with hops, exotic fruits, caramel and hints of apricot. Refreshing, I like the hops here. Slightly too sweet though.
