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 descendantís 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.

Nice IPA, a little on the sweet side in my opinion. I wonder if they are using an english ale yeast. Try it, you will like it.

Bottle from Mayflower Compact Variety Pack, bought in P-Town, drank at home. Pours a hazy golden amber with a huge fluffy head. Aroma of pineapple juice. The taste is sweet with dank earthy hops. Plenty of tropical fruit flavors as well. Lightly hopped, barely enough to be categorized an IPA.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized yellow tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The deep flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again. Quite quaffable it is.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Poured from bottle into my Founders snifter. Got this as an extra in a trade, Thanks Gushue! Bottled: 6/13/11 A: Poured a perfect amber with great clarity. Pinkish tones come through when held to the light. Even after a light pour a close to three finger head still sprung up. Off white with good retention. Slowly bubbled away leaving a wonderful webbing along the glass. S: Some pine-like citrus hits the nose. Some caramel pokes through the malts that are through the middle. T: Some nice grassy hops with a nice caramel backbone. The malts are present with a nice mix of bitter citrus. M: Light to medium bodied nice oily mouth. Highly carbonated. O: More malty than I expected, but still a decent IPA. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-29-2011

Jow (2404) - New York, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Draft at Roo bar in Plymouth, MA killing time prior to a wedding. Pours copper with fluffy head and nice hoppy citrus nose. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, malt, caramel, grass, and floral. Medium bodied and weíll carbonated, a nice straightforward ipa with 7% abv as a bonus.

Drake (9932) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Nikkiís Liquors, Providence. Tiny bit of a gusher. Pours a hazy orange color with a large creamy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big caramel malts with floral hops. The taste is floral, minty and tropical hops with a caramel malt backbone and strong notes of candied citrus. Medium bodied, very slight lingering bitterness. Decent.

On tap. It pours a medium amber with a kind of bronze tone and a moderate head. On the nose the brief note of malts gives way to a floral hop character. The body is medium and has a creamy texture. The taste ends with a bountiful bitterness that is balance and non-distracting. Nice beer.

Draft at KJís in Newport, RI. Soft, creamy, with a few tastes of pine an citrus thrown into the mix. A favorite in Newport, Iím happy to have made friends with it before I had to leave.

Caramel, fruit, and some flowery hops in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and malty, with fruit, pine, and spicy hops in the finish. I love IPAs that start with a nice base beer and donít overwhelm you with hops in the finish, and this certainly fits the bill.

Pwn3d (1961) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 10, 2012
On tap at Daves bar on post road in Warwick RI. Pour is deep amber with near flat top. Taste is more of a bitter hop than west coast fresh grapefruit hop. Good, simple and true to the style... Looking forward to trying more beers from the folks at mayflower.
