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.

MrMeadMan (42) - 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!

I am from Massachusetts. This IPA is drinkable all year long. Not overpowering. Slight malt nose tastes great.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Backlog rating on 8-22-2012 (Bottle) This beer has a large frothy semi-fizzy off-white head with a lengthy retention, slightly hazy golden body, very little carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is malt, pine hops and fruity. The flavor is lightly bitter, malt, pine hops, and has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this is an easy drinking IPA at 7% ABV as it is very hoppy for the style. It is worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

SlovakSniper (3647) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Tasting session with Frank. Une robe presque cuivrée qui développe une mousse durable qui génère une longue traînée. Un nez malté, fait de biscuits au miel avec des houblons fruités qui dégagent des parfums d’orange, d’ananas et de melon. Un goût aromatique avec des agrumes et des fruits de la saison chaude: une sorte de salade aux fruits qui baigne dans un sirop léger. En bouche, une très belle présence d’un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement mou et une texture crémeuse. Une finale acidulée comme un jus d’oranges et de pamplemousses avec une touche florale plaisante. Une IPA étonnante qui a bien fait mon affaire.

A solid IPA. Nothing to write home about. On the average side with some citrus and a bit of pine.

Draft to pint pours avg gold. Nose dank hop,hint of pine,some sweet malt. Taste, similar to nose with dank hop predominant. Mid palate some sweet and a lingering bitter finish. Some more floral and pine notes as it warms

Cybercat (3799) - Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Cask. Pours a hazy, almost opaque honey golden with a thick pale buff head. Hoppy aroma has a strong yeasty overtone, a lot like like bread dough. Flavor is quite hoppy, more evergreen than woody, with fruity notes - both pomme and citrus - and a malty undertone. Texture is smooth and viscous, but has good fizz, leaving a greenwood finish. May this flower on your palate!

AirForceHops (4076) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Draft @ The Ale house. Lightly hazy golden color with thin head. Served in a shaker glass. Aroma is citrus upfront with hints of floral note afterword’s.

Taste is more of a west coast fresh pine and grapefruit hops. Nice balance of biscuit and caramel malt. Mild earthiness leading into a smooth dry lingering moderately bitter pine finish. Pretty basic but the hops are nice and fresh. Refreshing on a warm evening.
