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!

Golden draft pour with a thin but lingering head and excellent lacing. Fresh hoppy scent. Citrus and some lemon, a bit of spice, and pine. A bit of bitterness. Overall a nice well balanced IPA.

Fantastic citrus-y IPA with tons of lacing. Bitterness is about a 7/10. One of my favorite Maine beers.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Libby craft glass.

Appearance: Pours a murky golden color with a huge white head. Fairly heavy carbonation. Tons and tons of lacing.

Aroma: This beer has a lot of lemony, citrusy aromas going on. Also some lemongrass and biscuit.

Taste: Flavor profile follows the nose pretty closely. It's a hoppy, lemony beer with a somewhat malty finish. There's some orange, apricot and grapefruit, too.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat light. Not in unappealing way, just not a big, thick beer

Overall: Solid IPA. Could see myself having this again. Good IPA to have with spicy food or something with an aggressive flavor or tons of heat; the citrusy, light quality of this beer would pair well.

A - Murkey golden body with thin bubbly head. Not a lot of retention but nice lacing.

S - Huge punch of bite rye with some bitter hop

T - Floral hops and rye start out strong, spicy, and bitter. But flavors fall off quickly resulting in a weak bicuity aftertaste.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Somewhat chewy at the start but thinning out quickly.

O - This was ok but the flavors and body fall flat through out the swig for me.
