78. Mayflower IPA

For someone that does not prefer IPAs I seem to drink a lot of them. Seems like almost every craft brewer has their version of an IPA so I end coming across more and more as I expand my search for new beer. This one again came from my sister-in-law and improves on the last IPA but there are still better options out there. Color is a great orange with a nice clean white head. Easy to drink even with 7% alcohol. Hops are not overpowering and leave a bit of room for the malt to come through.
Pros: Color, right blend of hops and malt for an IPA
Cons:
Alcohol Content: 7.0% ABV
Calories: ???
IBU (Bitterness): 69
Rating: ★★★☆☆
Brewers Website: Mayflower Brewing
Brewers Description: As the British Empire expanded, English brewers added extra hops to keep beer fresh for increasingly long sea voyages. The beer on board the Mayflower shared this trait. Mayflower IPA puts a descendant’s twist on this style, with a powerful hop profile balanced by plenty of malt character. We use the freshest hops from the Pacific Northwest to give this beer its distinct, piney flavor and delightful, fruity aroma.
