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!

Thick foamy two finger head That sticks to the glass and is persistent. Grapefruit aroma with some oranges and a hint of pine, very clean. Hop forward citrus taste, some lemons, and pines, background of cracker malts. Medium carbonation as well as mouthfeel. Great ipa ill definitely drink it again.

Bottle > Sensory Pils glass

A - Clear gold with 1.5 finger white fizzy head, really small lacing.
S - Decent aroma, some light tropical notes, lemongrass, a touch of spice.
T - Very strong grassy flavor, you dont get any of the tropical notes from the aroma in the taste. Mild biscuit malt, and a medium bitterness.
M - Extremely dry.
O - I have notes on this from having it on tap at the brewery, but I find this version better. I'll have to compare later.

Reviewing my notes from when I had this at the brewery, the only differences I noted were the aroma, some floral notes and dank pine, and the feel was watery.
