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 descendants 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.

Cybercat (5393) - 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 (6689) - 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 afterwords.

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.

Lukaduke (3098) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Pours a medium golden with a finger of white foam. Pleasant mix of fresh toasted malt, moderate to light hop presence of pine, citrus, fruity pebbles and field grass with a nice balance between malt and hop but light handed. A strange jello like mouthfeel is apparent but the malt profile and hop layers make it a easy sipper. Clean bitterness on the finish. Good entry level ipa for people who dont want a bomb of citrus juice or overboard bitter offering.

Bebum (855) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2014
Cask. Dark amber, some lacing. Full body, flat mouthfeel, lacking acidity, carbonation or alcohol to lift it, medium flavor intensity, avg length. Bitter, dry. Intense and flowery hop flavor and finish. Could be very nice if more balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

berkshirejohn (6280) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
12oz bottle from Georgios, Billerica, MA. A pale amber pour with a billowing off-white head; floral aroma; soft floral taste with some piney, resinous hops leaving a lingering fresh, grassy bitterness. Good, but not the best East Coast IPA.

Bulk_Carrier (4528) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Rcvd in trade. The appearance has a somewhat hazy golden orange colored body that shows a nice deal of transparency. There is a one finger white foamy head that rises a bit and then falls leaving a nice deal of foamy white lacing sticking to the sides of the glass. The smell is malty, earthy and grassy with a decent backing of citrus. The taste is sweet and earthy through the citrus and malts combining to end up showcasing a sweet malty aftertaste that leads to a dry finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium on the body, but not as sessionable as I had hoped for. Carbonation comes across fairly odd, but not so much in a bad, as its not harsh nor is it smooth. Overall, for the most part, its not a bad AIPA, just seems a bit different to me perhaps closer to an EIPA with an added earthy and grassy sort of quality to enhance the beer. If given the chance, Id seek on tap.

Sampled at the NH Brewfest. An average IPA with plenty of hops, but little in the way of malt balance... a common mistake...

Berard (639) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Draft. Pours orange with white head that lingers. Nice hop aroma with mild carbonation. Grapefruit and Banana flavors. Solid ipa with some complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rjplumer (1030) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Has fruity yeast aroma, About a finger head on top of mildly haze pale orange body. Bitter piney intro to the taste with a sour note. Has a hint of malt character. Tasted real good on tap on a cruise of Plymouth Harbor where the original Mayflower landed. Was just as good from the bottle. Makes a good intro to this style of brew as its not over powering. A good "go to" IPA.
