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… Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose offers cookie, brown sugar and black tea. Light to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor suggests black tea with a light squeeze of lemon. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish. Thanks to growler for sharing the bottle!

Sammy (8092) - 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.

12 ounce bottle from Nikki’s 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.
