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!

Just got this in at Olive Tree Market in OB--$8.99 a bomber. Looks like it was bottled in July 2012--what the hell? why is this just getting into California. Stupid distributors. Yep, upon first popping the cap, I get some dying hops. Lame. Slightly hazy yellow gold with a 1 1/2 finger off-white head, good retention. Despite being a couple months old, there is still some good resiny pineapple and Citra hops, some lightly toasty malts behind. Flavor adds a bit of herbal hops and still has the aforementioned good hop flavor, but also the old hops. Just a little bit of malt sweetness is tempered by bitterness that peaked at a 7 in the semi-dry finish, earthy. Medium body with light smooth carbonation. I bet this would’ve been quite tasty if I had a fresher bottle--no complaints other than the age.

Nice pleasant minty and light spruce aroma, Solid IPA flavor with some sharp citrus bitterness, light cake mix sweetness, a hint of coriander spiciness. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Pretty decent. Nice to see this brewer makes it way to North Florida.

puboflyons (2601) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 6, 2015
From the 650 ml. bottle Heady amber pour. The aroma is clean and crisp with a focus on sweet toasted malts. Not a ton of hops here. OK body in the medium The body is the medium range. The taste has a decent hop Basically balanced.character with that caramel malt note The hops do kick in but they are not overwhelming. Basically balanced.

glennmastrange (2445) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle. Moderate roasted grain for the malt, moderate to heavy grapefruit and orange juice for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with a note of pepper. Palate is average size, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky dark amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes faintly sweet and bitter and lightly acidic. Palate is medium, slick with a lively carbonation. Nice citrus aromas and refreshing flavors make this a perfect summertime IPA.

trapped (1456) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 28, 2015
Draught. Clear rich yellow with medium sized creamy white head, floral aroma, medium carbonation, sweetish fruity taste, long finish with perfume like flavor. Too fragrant and not hoppy enough.

On tap at Cugino’s. It poured a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma was of citrus and grass. It had a medium body with light carbonation. The taste was of citrusy hops with some bitterness and a little sweetness with a good malt balance. Good stuff.
