Not sure what others here are expecting but this is a very, very solid DIPA from Mayflower. I can fine no fault here...the 3 hop mix is well balanced with citrus and florals, not boozy given 8%. Some call it decent, I’d like to know their standard because this is a top not NE DIPA.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Long Ridge Wine and Spirits for about fourteen dollars. Have had many brews from these guys before. Decent brew, but nothing special, would not buy again.

From the 16 oz. can dated 06/22/2018. Sampled July 21, 2018.

The pour is a light amber-yellow tone with a cloudy appearance and a foamy, delicate white head up top. It fades some.

The aroma emits a pleasant character of earthy and floral hops as well as a balance of sourdough bread sweetness. No alcohol.

Medium body.

The taste tends to be far more bitter than the aroma suggests but I do pick up a quick sweet breadiness to start that quickly evolves into an earthy hop presence. Again, no alcohol. Fairly clean finish.

Canned 5/01/18
Pours a big fluffy foamy 1.5 finger head that fades semi slowly with nice lacing, mostly clear slight hazed golden yellow color

Nose starts with sweet malts and candied fruits, mild citrus marmalade and candied stone fruit, sweet almost sugar glaze, generic citrus zest, little tangerine and pithy notes, pretty light in general though

Taste brings more candy flavors, sugar syrup a bit of blond malt, candy sugar, glazed fruits again with a mild stone fruit apricot like, little generic citrus, maybe young tangerine or not so sour lemon zest, marmalade flavors again, a little warming perfumey alcohol, that's about it, again light, drier finish but still sticky sweet, a little alcohol tingle

Mouth is med to fuller bod, nice fizzy carb, some warming almost tingly alcohol

Overall eh, very light even for DIPA, not much going on, drinkable but boring

Great DIPA, citrus, no strong alcohol taste. Very impressed for a NE Style DIPA

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a modest copper color with a sly transparency about it. The head was about two fingers and glided off at a mild pace. Some trickling lace.
The aroma had some grapefruit dryness, squeaky hop spice, lemon zest and light grass.
The flavor had most of the aromas coming together sweetly then popping a pronounced blend of grapefruit/melon character. Light aftertaste of the melon with some lemon zest.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair amount of sessionability about it. Of course carbonation was nice and low.
Overall, pretty good DIPA that I could have again.

The Mayflower brewing company is always full of surprises.

I really like their beers, especially the limited releases.

Pours a clear, carbonated golden color with a 4F head with good head retention.

Aroma: fragrant, fruity and earthy.

Very smooth MF, especially for the style.

Apple, citrus, and earthy taste.

Smooth with a light bitter finish.

These folks never follow the “formula”. They have their own personal brewing signature. Quite enjoyable.

Had on tap. Pours clear gold in color with minimal head. Taste is melon and grapefruit rind. Medium bodied and carbonation slightly bitter. Makes for a slightly above average ipa.

Canned last week but no actual date on my can; I am not exactly sure if this will be an ever-changing series with different hops but my can is labeled as using Simcoe, Mosaic, and Nugget hops; no doubt, the best hoppy beer I have ever had from Mayflower, keep this up please
