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 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.

In a traditional pint glass, had a nice look to it but not much of a head to it at all. What was there was white that didnt really stick around too long. Despite that, it actually had some very nice lacing that lasted through the entire session. It was a nice amber color with almost perfect clarity. It smelled very good, had some nice citrus/floral notes to it, you can tell at this point its already going to be a nice hoppy beer. The tast matches up with the smell. Nice and hoppy. Very citrusy as well, kinda grapefruity, but not overlesming, really excellent taste to it, burps up nice, good aftertaste. Mouthfeel was very good too, not much of a carbination bite. Very drinkable, very refreshing. This is a really good IPA.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2011
(12oz bottle). Pours copper with off-white head that quickly disappears. Nice carbonation. Aroma has some dank hops, but also some bright grapefruit and mango. Taste is semi-sweet and bitterness. Nicely balanced. Thin bodied with slick/oily texture. Finish is pleasantly bitter, but the malts are still there. Nice IPA.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, tropical fruit, pineapple, tangerine, and a hint of diacetyl. Poured amber in color with a small, rocky, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Very sparkling. Flavor light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of hops, tropical fruit, tangerine, slight crystal malt, and citrus. Medium body. Thinish texture. Average carbonation. Hop, malt, tangerine, and citrus finish. 7%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

jgb9348 (5923) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Hazy orange coloured body with a gold glow and a nice dense deep tan head and a trillion bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of candy sugar, yeast, wheat, fresh herbal hops, a touch of grass and some mild hay. Light to Medium-bodied; Some undeveloped hops and yeast flavour start out strong with a good malt backbone and a touch of grassy and herbal flavours throughout. Aftertaste shows a bit of hop bitterness, some grass and hay tastes and a bit of a mild finish, with some lingering bitterness. Overall, a decent IPA - not horrible, nor great. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Colonial Spirits in Acton, Massachussets on 23-September-2010, sampled in New Paltz, New York on 25-December-2010, Christmas Day!

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazed golden amber, more gold than amber, with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left a layer of foam with each sip. Pleasant aroma of pine and caramel along with some citrus notes. The flavor begins with a solid dose of malt and caramel followed by some fairly resinous pine. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Overall, I found this to be a very solid and enjoyable IPA.

12oz bottle, no date from Julios on 10/29/2010. Dammit, it looks like there is a bottled on date, and it is 07/21/10--yay, an over three month old IPA. Aroma of some sweaty Cascade hops up front with some woody pine notes following, light caramel at the back end. Actually is holding up well for the age--so far. Flavor shows this, and the hops turn a little stale, but are still fairly herbal, moderate sweet caramel malt, pekoe tea, and light toast. Finishes dry, bitterness peaked at a 4. Alcohol masked well. Light to moderate carbonation with a medium body. Actually not too bad--wonder how a fresher sample would be. . .

I think this is a solid IPA, nicely balanced with a strong hop presence, great summer drinking IPA, worth a try for sure. Not in the top tier but in a close second to many of the great ones.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2010
In short: A citrusy and resinous IPA. Straightforward but nonetheless a solid tasty example of the style.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase
The look: Partly cloudy golden orange body topped by a medium of-white head with good retention
In long: Nose is intensely citrusy. Taste has a bit of caramel but it mostly feels like a big thick condensed citrus fruit affair. Overall the body feels rather nourishing. Some pine-tree notes. The hop profile is also quite resinous. The bitterness is strong sticky. Creamy mouthfeel with a lively carbonation. This is a nice IPA, a bit underrated imho. A well balanced beer. The concept of beer itself is overall well balanced. It is the cause of many problems and the solution to as many.
