Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #51 (April 2011):

Head pops up pretty quick, not gushing, but four fingers high and took forever to drop down. Pale amber glow has a good clarity. Soft resin-like mint, spice and some citric ... an aroma takeover. Mild level of carbonation, smooth and a bit slick within the medium body. Hops slap down a thick oily flavor of spice, citric and mint ... bitterness is not rough, just firm. Yeah, there is malt there, but it struggles to poke through the thick blanket of hop flavor. Kiss of alcohol and exotic fruit in the semisweet finish ... there is the malt waiting for us in the end. Good drinking and an easy way to get your hop fix.

What a fantastic IPA. It is not Mayflowers best beer, that is without a doubt the porter, but this is still one of my favorite IPAs. Spicy with darker fruit notes, this is not my usual MO for IPAs but Mayflower makes such a good beer they bring it home.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a glowing, cloudy orange with lots of yeasty particles floating around in there. Big two-finger white head. Pretty heavy lacing and carbonation.

Aroma: Nice aromas of pine, grass, apricot and citrus.

Taste: The taste follows the nose, and packs more punch. Pine and apricot lead the way. Nice crisp finish. A fine IPA.

Mouthfeel: Perfect depth.

Overall: Another winner from Mayflower. This is a terrific IPA at a reasonable price. It hits all the right notes, with delicious hop bitterness and flavor and just enough boozy kick, without being at all overpowering. Great stuff.
