Bomber. Clear golden body with a frothy white head, slowly diminishing. Enticing aroma of fresh hops, citrus, toasted grain, resin, tropical fruits. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Fantastic balance. A sweet IPA — orange juice, sweet grapefruit, citrus — that works well with resin bitterness. The beer is clean, fresh. Just when you start to think it’s too sweet, the bitterness kicks in. Could drink lots of this beer.
backlog. Hazy yellow on draft. Large head. Violent carbonation. Very dry and bitter finish. Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2016

Bottle. Pours a near clear light orange with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has earthy grass and earthy citrus with a touch of flora as well as a touch of sweet grains backing. Flavor has earthy citrus up front with a bit of resin and some sweet grains in the finish.

Bomber bottled Aug 2015 - nose is spruce and citrus. Sip adds floral elements as well as a little hay. interesting flavor but watery. surprised by the lack of pronounced bitterness. Easy to drink and dangerous because of the 7.0% ABV. latent fruitcake Braudog (6712) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle. Medium gold, with a firm build. Pretty malty first impression, but then the woody aspects start to come forward. This is an outdoorsy adventure. (#6074, 12/12/2015) milewide (2249) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Cloudy golden color. Excellent blend of fruity and herbal hops. Modest bitterness. Solid malt support. migwell (365) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Adieu Pretty Things, you made some memorable brews! Meadowlark IPA is a good example, a very much straight down the middle American IPA, well balanced, good malt flavor, hoppy but not bitter. Big bottle poured (several times) into a tall thin tulip, which induces a pronounced and occasionally uncontrollable head in almost everything poured into it. Light amber colored, robust citrus flavor, good balance and complexity from start to finish. I’m sure I’ll be one of many buying up the remaining stock.

Pours a golden amber from a bottle with a thick pillowy white head, slowly dissipating leaving lots of lacing. Nose is intensely floral with a touch of hay. Flavor is also floral, but starting to throw in a bit of fruits, like peaches in syrup kind of a thing. Sweet but not cloying, ending on a bitter note. Full mouthfeel, slightly oily but not in a bad way. Very good beer.
