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!

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.

Pours a nice cloudy dark gold with a bit of head. Good lacing. Decent aroma of English hops and malts. Flavour is pretty nice - the hops taste English but certainly stronger than a typical English bitter.

Well balanced maltiness. Great lingering hoppy aftertaste. Reading the beer description now, I am a bit surprised to find that this uses American hops, but I suppose it helps explain the stronger profile than a typical British... Enjoyable stuff, and better than I expected. It's providing me with something a bit different than most American IPAs.
