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.

Sammy (8358) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2011
Tasty and not overpowering IPA. Floral hops, dark golden coloure body with ample off-white head. The IBU is right there and the Pacific Nothwest provides a break from the usual C-hops. The palate is shaken and stirred, and not shredded. Good drinkability. Thanks Jay.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2011 On tap. Strong citrus / grapefruit flavors in the initial taste. Then comes hop flavor followed by a bitter aftertaste. The bitterness lasted a bit too long for my preference which was the only real downside to this beer.

Draft at Get Real NY Cask Ale Event with Linh, Streets, Andrew, and Brendan. Had one on one with Baby Streets - a decent IPA from a brewery Iíve never encountered previously. Got to try two versions of this - dry-hopped with citra and one with amarillo.

In a traditional pint glass, had a nice look to it but not much of a head to it at all. What was there was white that didnít really stick around too long. Despite that, it actually had some very nice lacing that lasted through the entire session. It was a nice amber color with almost perfect clarity. It smelled very good, had some nice citrus/floral notes to it, you can tell at this point itís already going to be a nice hoppy beer. The tast matches up with the smell. Nice and hoppy. Very citrusy as well, kinda grapefruity, but not overlesming, really excellent taste to it, burps up nice, good aftertaste. Mouthfeel was very good too, not much of a carbination bite. Very drinkable, very refreshing. This is a really good IPA.
