COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the British Empire expanded, English brewers added extra hops to keep beer fresh for increasingly long sea voyages. The beer on board the Mayflower shared this trait. Mayflower IPA puts a descendant’s twist on this style, with a powerful hop profile balanced by plenty of malt character. We use the freshest hops from the Pacific Northwest to give this beer its distinct, piney flavor and delightful, fruity aroma.

Bottle. A pale gold pour with light foam head. Pine hops with a malt balance. Good even taste through the finish. It was flavorful but a little average.

Thanks to jayli for hooking me up with this one. Pours hazy orange amber with a white head. Nose is malt, pine, tart white/ pink grapefruit, and a bit of apricot. Flavor is fizzy malt, orange/ citrus, and a bit of pine. Finishes with pine bite and apricot. Decent medium-bodied IPA.

Cavie (3898) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2010

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottled. Cheesy, rusty, generic cheap IPA aroma. Stale and bland. The kind of aroma that gives IPAs a bad name. Flavor is mostly just bitter with too much crystal. About as generic as IPA gets.

halfonit (1205) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2009
This pours a deep golden color with a nice head. Aroma is of hops, some floral, and a slight citrus. Taste is of hops, malts, and a little pine. Has a bitter aftertaste. Not a too bad IPA, but really nothing special.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 1, 2009
On cask at Nerax’s event at Novare. Pours a golden hazy straw color with a distinct piney hop nose. Flavors are very clean, crisp, and typical over hopped delicious west coast style IPA. There’s a solid malt backbone at work here, but it’s all about the hops here. This was a nice little cask.

BroSpud (1793) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 30, 2009
12oz bottle. Below average IPA though still quite drinkable. Not as hop heavy as I would have liked being more on the side of a pale ale.
