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.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2009
On tap at Redbones. Light copper in color with some orange hues. Small off white head. Aroma of moderate citrus- grapefruit with some pine, and some biscuit and light toasted malts. Hops in the flavor are moderately assertive- grapefruit, some pine, over a full malt backbone for the style- moderate to aggressive bitterness. A solid IPA.

jeckenroth (121) - Reading, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Short off white head produced little lacing over a somewhat hazy golden to brown brew. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus hit first with some hoppie undertones. Medium bodied with refreshing carbonation. The hops didn’t hit me in the first sip but a second try had a nice, if short, shot of the bitter hops. Somewhat sweet at the beginning with that lovely floral in the middle. Very refreshing. A brew that is great in its balance rather than any distinguishing feature.

CamdenD (1059) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 8, 2008
Very nice IPA. I may be a bit inflated here. In any case, good strong hops on the nose and strong bitterness throughout. Good east coast IPA.

pint at Sunset Grill. Good aroma, sweet. Fruity, Apricot, berry, toffee. Clean golden orange color, ok head, and lace. Bitter flavor, like aroma, but has a bitter streak, lemon/grassy. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter finish. Very nice ipa, this went down fast. The aroma was delightful. A nice one to have, well worth finding.

shigadeyo (2973) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2008

4/20/2008: Mayflower IPA has a clear, golden amber color with a lasting, foamy off-white head. The aroma and flavor both showcase the herbal, piney, and lightly citrusy hops. This beer has a noteable amount of bitterness that is slightly abrasive, but not too far out of balance or too intense. The bitterness is held in check by a decent level of biscuit malt that seems to have a really mild honey sweetness to it. The beer has aa medium body and is slightly oily on the palate. Overall Mayflower IPA is flavorful, balanced, and would make for a good sessionable IPA.

Pint (draught) at The Publick House in Brookline, MA. Rating #1 for this beer...
