Notes/Commercial Description:
Frye's Leap IPA is an intense experience. It is a hoppy medium-bodied ale and is full of character. From the caramel malt which gives our IPA its golden color to the distinct fruity hoppiness, this beer is every bit as exciting as its namesake, the popular cliffs on Sebago Lake. Enjoy this refreshing beer with seafood, spicy foods and all things grilled. Take the Leap!

Had this on tap in the Beer Garden in Plainfield, CT this past weekend.

A: Poured a nice dark amber in color, with a good 2-3 finger off white/tan head.

Smell - A burst of hops as I go in for this beers beautiful fragrance. Piney, with some citrus.

Taste - This one follows through on the nose, what wonderful flavors come off of this one. The bitterness is spot on, with wonderful, earthy hops, malts back things up quite well. Jaw tingling flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, goes very well for the style.

Overall - This has become a new favorite. I haven't purchased sebago just because of the labeling but I'm glad I got to try this offering of theirs. I'll be coming back for more.

T: tropical citrus and lemongrass, with caramel lightly playing about.

M: light-medium, not filling at all. slightly creamy finish with slick finish, minor bitterness playing about.

3.35/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

a. darker golden color, clear with 1 finger head. Head disappears quickly. Some lacing on glass.

s. Hops, spice (pepper?), Citrus, tropical (passion fruit).

t. Watery - some hops on the back, but light. Some spice but I cannot pick it out.

m. Carbonation seemed light.

o. Debated between 3.25 and 3.5. Refreshing enough for a hot summery day, but flavor is not the best. Will not be purchasing again.
