Slim like. Tall Boy dated 11.19.21 so 2 months old. Poured into a West Passage RI shaker pint. Logs in at 6%, my happy place for an IPA. Not a hazy, a standard American IPA I'd say. Full bodied, balanced, tasty. That's 3 of my main boxes!

Haven't drank a Mayflower in quite a while, and they always brewed fine beer. Maybe too many new places to check out. But quality never goes outta style. They're back on my radar.

Picked this beer up a few weeks back in Williamsburg as I had never seen anything from Mayflower in this neck of the woods before, let alone heard from them. Plenty bright and sweet, this was a serviceable American IPA that was easy to drink and somehow checked off all of the boxes in the process although there wasn't anything particularly outstanding about this but for an early summer night such as this, it was worth kicking back with!

This had a golden hue to it that was slightly hazy, quietly radiant, and topped off with plenty of spongy head that settled unevenly because of the big bubbles in it. Very little lacing was left behind as I worked my way through this with just a bit of suds lingering above the top of the liquid. Lemon pledge, tangy citrus, and grass filled the subdued nose as they were also all present in the taste. Some orange rind and herbal notes came into play as this warmed up with plenty of Biscuit and wheat in the malt to give this the body that it needed to round out the tangier and hoppier notes.

Plenty of balance here although the carbonation could have been a bit more present and there was some puckering stickiness left on my lips after this went down. It complemented the light presence of hop oils fine as they were a reminder that indeed, this was an IPA. I only say that because it was nearly impossible to detect the alcohol here as I could have easily mistaken this for an American Pale Ale. Canned on 5/21 with "A WHOLE NW!" written above it, I loved the pun as "NW" could have stood for New World or Northwest hops. This was a basic take on the style that was unoffensive and well-crafted and had there been another here, I could have cracked it open after finishing this. Worth a go once in a group setting as it's hard to see anyone disliking this beer.

This was orange sherbet in beer form. Tantalizing your tastebuds and dazzling your mouth with a citrus overload. A seamlessly smooth beverage with a great tang and big body. While a little heavy, once in a while a voyage to the New World is a trip you should take.

T: cat pee for a moment, then mango is prevalent; very mild bitterness on the finish;

O: I liked the aroma more than the flavor;

On tap at One Off Pub in Bar Harbor, ME.

This one pours a moderately hazy light yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells fairly lemony, with light malt, grassy and herbal bitterness, and some odd yeastiness.

This has some off flavors- it's kind of yeasty and astringent, and slightly vegetal. The lemon and grapefruit hop notes are nice, though, but it's also a tad malty for the style, as well.

This is light bodied, crisp, but not super clean, with an astringent finish.

This doesn't exactly seem like Mayflower's cup of tea here. It's not the best tackling of the style.

Poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a glossy semi-murky slightly bright yellow color. Nice looking two finger white foamy rocky head. Softly subsided to leave some rings of lace sliding into some messy strings.
The aroma had some lemon meringue sweetness, slight grassiness, some sweet biscuit and a little bit of lemongrass. Dry sort of earthiness.
The flavor was a sweet sort of dry earthy character playing with the grassiness, lemongrass and lemon meringue character. Strong biscuits in the aftertaste with some of that lemon meringue.
The mouthfeel was almost medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt close to what was. Very lemony sort of finish.
Overall, fairly good AIPA does the trick for the most part.

New IPA from them, at least for me. Canned 5/02/18

Pours a nice fizzy foamy creamy thicker 1.5 finger head that retains very well and nice lacing, very hazy golden pilsner color

Nose mild citrus and generic tropical fruit, very muted nose, little grassy earthy dank like too, with a touch of vegetative onion notes in the background, and some pithy notes and mild malt

Taste brings some lemony notes, citrus oil with plenty of zest, a bit of orange tangerine papaya mango like citrus notes, a bit of generic tropical and a little guava too, plenty of pith as well, a little rind and fresh zest oils, bit creamy base malt, flaked malts, and mild bitterness that increases a bit on the finish as it attempts to dry but still a but sticky sweet

Mouth is med bod, a bit creamy, decent fizzy carb

Overall OK but not great, very muted and doesn't have a ton going for it esp with the hops they say are in there.

On cask at Ginger Man, Boston, MA 4/26/18

A - golden color with a soft head, good lacing, head sticks around a little, no activity, slightly hazy

S - apricot, honey, butterscotch, mild hop pungency

T - very soft subtle hop bitterness covers the tongue.

M - Cask conditioning gives this a very pillowy and creamy texture, although the hop flavors feel muted by it.

O - IPA on cask is a nice changeup, as long as one is ok with sacrificing some flavor for texture.

Very large bubbled head (cask pour). No lace. The color is light gold with a mild haze.

Sweet smell of maltose like smelling a wort. There's a bit of floral hop in the background.

As a Cask pour, the beer has a very low carbonation level. The body is a bit thin. The flavor is less sweet than the smell suggests. The hop bitterness is steady throughout the tasting even though the aftertaste is brief.
