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!

Big aroma in this IPA with citrus, caramel and a touch of yeast. I appears as a cloudy golden amber. The taste is on the high side of medium, with a pleasant bitter but not overpowering. It is medium to full bodied with average carbonation and a medium light bitter finish. Overall very tasty and enjoyable, maybe one of my top 10 favs.

Bottle from Decicco, bottled Aug 2012. Nice hazy copper with lasting head and lace. Floral citrus and woody hop aroma. Toasted fruity melon toffee sweetness with juicy hops and juicy fresh hoppy slightly toasty malty roundness and medium assertive finish medium dry. Nice soft mouthfeel and carbo. Excellent balance. Fucking excellent.

De color naranja, luminosa. Espuma blanca de retención media. Aromas suaves a frutas tropicales, fondo terroso y algo de miel. Cuerpo medio, resinosa. Gasificación media. En boca tropical, amarga pero también está presente la malta. El alcohol no se nota. Regusto ligeramente amargo. Muy equilibrada. Espectacular la etiqueta. Un cervezón!!

At just on cool and into a bulbous tulip. Looks perfection. Well conditioned, tight and tidy with a mountainous foam that holds. The body a hazy deep orange, sunny and reflective. Rich, stinging to the olfactories, resinous, peachy, whole hop nose; plump with ripe citrus and stone-fruit, and candied fruit notes and bountiful with vinous, tight, higher alcohol notes; smoky, blue-Brie, nettles, pine mulch, eucalypt - Lovely (excuse the grammar - a lot going on!)! Wow, a real productive, complex mouthful. Big body, plump like the nose. Soft, prickly carbonation with a smooth finish. Taught, tight, drying and drawing on the salival glands is the general gist. Piney, resinous, woody; nettles and vine clippings come through as does some sodden earth, straw, hessian sack (?), oak (again?), peach Schnapps, white, soft rind cheese, mild smoke, a hugely progressive, herbal hop bitterness that leaves the palate parched but quenched. This is the bo-diddly and it is far from fresh. All yeasty funk is going on but it is still ripe with huge hop presence. I love it. Could it be just fit at a year in the bottle, or would this be just as grandish fresh on draught!? Massively complex and admirable IPA. First in a long while to break these points. Burdy nums!!!

A medium-light golden brew. Frothy white head that sticks around a while. Super aromas- very Maine beerish. Lots of flowers and spice. Very fragrant. Lovely. Then, we get to the flavors - VERY VERY fresh. God - I love Pretty Things! Super fresh flavors, lots of hoppy layers. Not thick and gooey at all. Fragrant and fresh. Super drinkable. Super well-balanced. This is da bomb!

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

Pours medium clarity amber yellow with a decent white head. The aroma and flavor both bring juicy, sweet hops so smooth in the nose and on the palate. The flavors end on the palate with some tame but delicious bittersweet hops as well, pleasant but present for sure on the tongue.
