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. Relatively subdued aroma for an IPA. Below average hop flavor and mouth feel for an IPA. Slightly bitter finish. There are much better IPAs out there, both micro and microbreweries.

Mariobiron (21) - St-Mathias-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Bonne IPA Americaine; bien meilleure fraîche "on tap" car les houblons et les aromates d’agrumes sont beaucoup plus présente.

bnokk (403) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2016
APPEARANCE- Bright yellow, almost chartreuse! Excellent head off the draft that dissipates quickly leaving behind beautiful lacing footprint. NOSE- Floral hop, through & through. FLAVOR- exactly what you’d expect from the first whiff. Flavorful and well balanced, but focusing on the floral/citrus hop varieties. NOTES- Good, but not unique. Solid drinker.

Like their porter, this is just a good solid example of the style. No surprises, but that's ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kevinsenn (1854) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015

Quick3Beers (749) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Pours a light amber from the tap. Nice floral hop aroma alon with some caramel maltiness. Flavor is a rather sweet IPA with a hit of bitterness on the backside. Okay beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

snoworsummer (4264) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle. Tastes like dry pine hops, bitter grapefruit, toasted malt, and some toffee. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like grapefruit, toffee, toasted malt, and light pine.

MrMeadMan (66) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2015
Nice balance on the aroma between hoppy and yeasty. Good flavor not over hopped for the sake of hops. Goes down smooth with just enough bitterness. Quite enjoyable!
