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!

From the Sebago brewhouse in Portland ME.

A: deep, clear golden yellow with minimal lacing and 1 mm ring of head. No legs.

S: some lemongrass, citrus zest and light malt all blending well.

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.

O: If you can try it....well...try it. Pretty solid offering for a local chain brewery.

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.
