A: Good copper color with apparent carbonation, although not much of a head on the pour.

S: Soft earthy, floral hops, with some light citrus / tropical notes. Definitely more of a British nose than American, in my opinion.

T: Almost malt-driven on the front of the mouth, with more earthy, spicy hops. It does finish nicely bitter.

M: A little on the heavy side of medium body, just slightly sticky. For the most part there's enough bitterness to scrub it, but it does linger a bit. Good carbonation.

O: I feel like this is much more of an English IPA than an American, and as such it's quite good, but a bit of a disappointment for the hop heads.

I poured this beer into a perfect pint glass. It has a nice light amber color body with a nice 2"white foamy, sticky head. The smell is nice of citrus and pine. The taste is nice and hoppy, not real strong but good though. Very nice balance of malt and hop. The mouth feel is well carbonated and goes down nice. Overall this a good ipa and i wish i could get this in Pa.

Had this beer at the brewery as part of the tour. Served in a sample glass. NIce clear amber body and an off white head. Smell of nice citrus fruit and pine. Great resin, fruit flavor. Bitter but not a bomb. Good malt balance. Nice cereal flavor. Medium mouth feel. Great beer and I would have this again.

Mayflower is a nice local offering for me. I really enjoy this beer, and could drink it all day long.

A: Nice copper color with subtle head retention and lacing.

S: A nice floral/grapefruit aroma. Not over powering, but mouth watering.

T: Sweet flavor with a nice grapefruity flavor. Herbal/floral notes as well.

M: Nice carbonation, and a nice level of bitterness.

O: As I said, I could drink this one all day long, and never get tired of it.

Being a hop-head, I LOVE hops! But this one is definitely not overpowering, but it offers a nice balance of hop flavor. And for me, it's all about the hops. This one has four awesome hops: Nugget, Simcoe, Glacier and (one of my all time favorites) Amarillo. It's not a hop monster, but is a delicious hop flavor.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a crystal clear, vibrant, amber-copper coloring with a frothy, low profile, light, off-white head. Aromas are subtle, with an even blending of malt and grapefruit/floral hops. Flavors are wicked hop forward, with a resiny blast on the forward tongue, followed quickly by the green, sticky, marijuana-like hops presence that blends with a strong, tart, grapefruit character and a caramel malt backbone. Slightly roasted overall, leading to a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Great lacing on the glass, with a smooth, slightly drying bitter finish. Solid brew!

Received from a great east coast BA'er! Packaged 12/20/11.

Poured a medium amber that was virtually non-translucent and appeared to be totally filtered. A small, bone white, energized head faded to a mere lace around the glass. The smells are of a slight piney hop scent (not sensing citrus) and a bit more of a heavier malt aroma. The tastes are in accord with that. There is no strong hop front and the malts take precedence in this one. The hoppy bitterness I look forward to in this awesome style was only barely present at best. A decent beer and worth a try.

Poured into a 13 oz sniftered, bottled on 1/09/12. Pours dark orange, with some floaties, and a one inch white head that leaves some lacing. Smell is tangerine, pine, and grapefruit. Taste is very balanced nothing dominating, grapefruit comes threw after a few sips. Body is typical, nice amount of life, a touch dry, and very drinkable. This is a very nice IPA, not over the top, nothing to complain about.
