johnnnniee (2725) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - APR 24, 2015
Bottle from the Lazy dog Lightly hazy red amber color with a huge frothy off white head. Big pine and resin with some citrus on the nose. Plenty of bread and caramel and just a touch of chocolate to round things out. Drinkable with an old school feel to it.

malrubius (2035) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 7, 2015
Bottle from Brew Topia. Clear amber with lasting head. Medium roasted nutty fruity sweetness with assertive, almost overly aggressive, citrus and woody hop. Medium light body and lively carbo accentuates hop. This is a pretty blatant pound you over the head hoppy amber. It’s pretty good but not very complex of subtle. Good.

Pours an amber from the tap. Good hoppy aroma but rather falls flat in the mouth, not much going on. Okay beer.

Rcvd in trade. The appearance was an amber/copper colored body with a one finger white foamy head that lasted about a good minute before dieing into the body. There was some nice adequate somewhat ringy lacing that clung all around. The smell had citrusy hops up front with a nice light caramel malts ever so delicately in the background. The taste had a super nice citrus sweet to caramel sweet that eloquently manages to lead to the same aftertaste and adds in a dry sort of caramel finish. The palate sits about a medium on the body with a decent carbonation that is good for an American Amber/Red ale and for me. Overall, gee weez, I wasn’t expecting this one to be as good, but it sure got a big wow from me. Way to go Mayflower. I’d trade for this again.

Fruity bitter aftertaste. Brown clear. Really disappointing. Hoppy bitterness

I Have generally found beers from this brewery a little ho hum, but not this one. To me, it falls somewhere between a hoppy pale ale and an understated ipa. Resiny and earthy and very refreshing.

burg326 (4409) - Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured an amber color with aromas of light pine and light citrus with an herby flowery back end on the aroma. Flavors are the same a basic IPA nothing that was over the top.

Bottle. this is a really uninteresting IPA. Its not worth grabing a 6er of this stuff.

A: Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, Off White Head, Great Lacing S: Black Pepper, Piney, Nutty, Malty T: Black Pepper, Piney, Nutty, Malty, Mild Caramel M: Great Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Spicy, Bitter, Semi Drying Overall, a really good take on a hoppy amber ale with a nice spicy, malty backbone finish. These guys may have something going for them.
