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!

On tap @ Lord Hobo.

Aroma: Quite hoppy with citrus, resin, mild caramel malt in the background.

Taste: Moderate sweetness. Citrus forward with resin in the background. Good malt backbone. Moderate bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Moderately dry. Resin and caramel finish.

Une bouteille achetée en banlieue de Boston, MA. Embouteillé en décembre 2014. Une belle robe dorée translucide. Une mousse épaisse, blanche. Un premier nez d’agrume, style jus d’orange. Un malt blond. Une bouche intense, des saveurs puissantes, une amertume imposante. Un corps bien remplis. J’aime.

Bomber from Boston, thanks Rosey. Nice carbonation, not very much head unfortunately. I guess we are almost four months from bottling, maybe that has something to do with the lack of head. Aroma is very mild, some citrus detected. Appearance is an orange gold. Not much of interest going here, but it is totally fine. I am going to blame the age and transportation for the seeming drop of in quality.

On tap at Lord Hobo. Completely murky gold pour, lots and lots of yeast floating around, foamy white head and medium sheets of lacing. Aroma is floral, nice and hoppy, honey malt, definitely some malty aromas in there, really nice fresh juicy hoppiness, some pine. Taste is very piney, lots of pine, resin on the palate, good strong bitterness, pretty juicy, pungent. Palate is med-full bodied, nice chewy IPA, pretty solid IPA.

Cloudy orange pour from 22oz bottle at home with white ring of tiny head. Orange grapefruit aroma. Hints of vanilla on a tropical citrus hoppy juicy ipa. Pretty tasty

Derek881 (1040) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 7, 2015
Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a pretty cloudy and hazy straw color with a very large, foamy-creamy off-white head with great retention, and good cling and lacing. Its aroma featured hops tones of straw, grain, citrus, and pine, along with some notes of wheat, yeast, and barley. Its taste was somewhat sour and grainy, with some flavors of yeast and wheat, along with lighter citrus and earthy hops. The beer had a pretty lively mouthfeel with good carbonation and a lot of fizz, and was fairly dry yet thick with a slight alcohol presence.

Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma is pungent pine, wild flower nuances, and syrupy-malty sweetness. Taste is initially sweet malts followed quickly by heavy pine and a long mild bitter finish. It has a pretty substantial mouth feel. ’Hefty’ might be a good way to describe this IPA.

This is one of my favorite IPAs. Not dry, not overly bitter. Perfect amount of hoppiness. Very drinkable
