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!

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 For the most part I think this is a great beer. The aroma is a very pleasant floral and earthy while the flavor tended more towards peppery than the soft floral notes their website alleges. I was glad for this. The mouthfeel seemed a bit thinner than I’d like and there was a distinct, although minor fruity-sourness to the finish. The joy of Galaxy hops is a bit hidden in the pepper/spice and floral notes of the flavor. Although there is a touch of citrus/orange for contrast, the less common notes of passionfruit were undetectable.

Beautiful in the glass clear medium golden ample white fine foam, malty biscuit taste and aroma, honey, bit of herbal citric aroma, pancakes, slight bitterness creeping, finishing astringency.

Daytonbeer (662) - Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Pours bright gold with white head and tons of lacing...I’ll need to scrub the glass to clean it. Aroma of apples, citrus, and moderate pale malts. Taste is the same with some melon and a robust malty backbone. Very nice.

GIJOE (688) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Pours a light amber with a big, foamy, white head that stays forever. Permanent lacing...more like curtains. Nose is piney like a walk in the evergreen woods. Taste is slightly bitter. Medium body; vigorous carbonation. Nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a snifter, has a nice deep amber color with a good amount of head. Floral hops dominate the scent with notes of lavender and perhaps juniper? You taste the malt immediately then the hops take over, leaving a bitter citra hop finish. I was surprised at the 7% ABV because it’s so smooth. Great brew by Pretty Things. Tastes like a true west coast IPA brewed right here on the east coast. Cheers

SPDickerman (989) - Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours hazy orange with a small white ring. Smells of citrus and hints of pine. Taste is citrus punch with hints of caramel. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Pretty Things Meadowlark IPA finishes with a lingering soft bitterness.
