12oz bottle pours a reddish/orange/copper color with a small white foamy head that recedes to a small ring leaving sporadic lacing. Nose is hop leafs, sticky, resiny hop notes with a sweet honey biscuit malt note. Palate is smooth and crisp with a sticky, resiny finish. Flavor is thick biscuity honey malt notes with a light stingy hop resiny bite in the finish.

pours amber/golden with thinning white head. Citrus, pine aroma with a hint of malt as well. Hop bitterness hits right up front with hop flavor lingering. Palate is a bit flat and flavor dissipates quickly after initial punch. Not too bad but I would like to see a bit more malt profile here.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2010 On tap at the Union Brewhouse. Decent brew, but Iím honestly not sure I would have identified this as an IPA. The brewer describes it as an old-school style, and perhaps that is true. Wonít have it again.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a mostly clear darker golden color with a HUGE amount of fluffy white head that leaves THICK lacing all around the glass. Aroma is nothing special really, but not bad by any means. Flavor is very nice - a bit fruity, a bit hoppy and very well balanced. The level of carbonation seems to be spot on - nice and bubbly as you sip.
This is a really tasty IPA and something I would love to drink again. YUM!

Bottle leftover from camping up at Hill Farmstead for their grand opening. Pours a clear ruby hued brown with a medium sized sticky yellowed beige head. Nice clean citrus hop aromas, a bit of malt and caramel along with some metallic fruit notes. Medium bodied, a bit of earthy malt and hops. Finishes up with some slow lingering grapefruit bitterness.

Bottle. Pours light amber with a white head. Nose is piney and floral hops, noticeable malt background. Taste has more of the same. Could use a bit more hops, a bit less sweetness. Not terribly well balanced either. Decent IPA but nothing special.

This poured a medium orange color with a white head. aroma was of light citrus notes, some pale malts and not much else. Flavor was lightly toasted,a bit sticky, and just enough bitter hops to keep it balanced. Nothing bad, but not a great IPA.

6-pack, poured into a shaker. Great amber color, nice off-white two finger head, hoppy aroma. A great standard IPA, you canít go wrong with the Mayflower.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 12oz bottle courtesy of "The Wheelman", this poured a clear amber color with a moderate sized off white head and medium lacing. Nose of floral and citrus hops. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is of light malts with some pine and citrus hops and some bitterness. Dry bitter finish. Kind of a laid back IPA but decent in all regards..
