What stands out in this beer is that is has a very hoppy, sharp finish.
Most of the IPAs-DIPAs I’ve been drinking in the past two years have a mellower finish, and a pronounced fruit flavor a la NEIPA.

Lackluster color: light golden yellow with a 4F head.
Excellent aroma- pineapple, tropical fruit, citrus.
Light body- a slightly heavier body would have been preferable.
Excellent taste follows the aroma.
I’m a big fan of the brewery. Usually I drink their specialty beers, like the Thanksgiving Ale.
Definitely worth checking out.

A: The beer is hazy whitish yellow in color and poured with a half finger high white head that left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of cream, coconut, mango and orange are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that the flavors of cream are a little more prominent.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and somewhat juicy and creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This NEIPA is interesting and tastes like a citrusy/tropical creamsicle.

Pours a hazy orange color with a small head and some lacing.

Smells of pine and citrus. Tastes of citrus and sweet fruits with little final bitterness.

Medium body and light carbonation. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel.

This is a very pleasant, drinkable NEIPA.

Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint glass canned on 3/15/21. Pours a hazy yellow with a 2 plus finger sticky white head that leaves big thick gobs of lace with excellent retention. 4.25

Aroma is peach, melon, mandarin, apricot, and grapefruit rind. 4.25

Taste follows peach, honeydew, mandarin, apricot, and a little grapefruit. 4.25

Mouthfeel is above average, not sticky or dry, rather soft carbonation, and at 8% ABV it is pretty big on flavor but easy going down. 4.25

Overall this is a very good NEDIPA. I would recommend for sure. 4.25

This is an outstanding brew. I would suggest that if someone thought it was not, then they perhaps got a bad can, it hadn't been stored correctly, etc. Try it again. It is what you would hope for from a NE DIPA. Good head retention, nice aroma, a touch of sweetness, a bit more carbonation, and goes down very easily. Another great brew from Mayflower

From a 16 oz. can dated 03/15/21. Sampled March 20, 2021.

Murky, hazy golden pour underneath a lingering ivory head with sedimentary deposits therein.

The tropical fruit esters lead the way on the nose with pineapple, guava, and passion fruit. Lower sensation of cereal grain.

Medium to full mouthfeel.

The best way to describe the taste is that it is a juice bomb through and through.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Bradford's in Plymouth for about fourteen dollars. Have had many brews from these guys before. This was absolutely brutal, drinks like a brut IPA. Run away.
