COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here in New England, the new season brings an explosion of earthy scents and floral fragrances. We celebrate this renewal with a hoppy red ale that is all about the aroma. Four varieties of American aroma hops create a flavorful and citrusy brew that will reawaken your senses

Very hoppy floral aroma. Sweet as opposed to bitter scent. Copper color, just a little haze. A little bitterness, lots of sweet maltiness, then finishes bitter again. Nice light IPA for gradually warming weather.

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.

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.

Bottled in Plymouth. Somewhat dark amber pour. Malty and choppy. Pretty decent brew...

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle that appears to be stamped 1/3013. It might just be smudged. The pour is a decent looking medium amber with a thin head and stagnant carbonation. The aroma is like the flowers of spring with floral hops and biscuit malts. The body is light to medium with a slight acidity. The taste has a solid hop character all around with a moderate bitterness that does not linger long.

Much darker than I was expecting. Nice hop aroma and flavor. Medium to light body with a moderate malt backbone.
