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!

medium orange gold color. Slightly hazy. Weak aroma. Taste is clean but light citrus hops over a pale malt. There is a nice mild sweetness behind it that works well. Feel is a little smooth and lightly bitter.

I was expecting sub quality but was pleasantly surprised. Theres a little off flavor in the finish but overall not bad at all.

It was clear and golden in color. The head was moderately sized, slightly bubbly, and off-white. It left just a bit of lacing. The smell had some herbs to it, but mainly orange and just a bit of pine as well. The taste was mildly sweet and floral, the orange comes back ever so slightly. The palate was medium also with a medium carbonation with a decently strong body. Overall, it is a very drinkable beer that I would come back to.

Pine, citrus, caramel, bitter. This IPA is right up my alley; hit's all the notes I look for in an IPA. Had a couple of cold glasses on tap whilst in ME. Golden/clear amber-ish body with a moderate, tightly packed head. Aroma is pine, fresh cut grass, orange peel, grapefruit pith and toasted bread. Sets my mouth to watering. Taste of orange peel, pine, grapefruit, resin with a slightly sweet caramel-malt backboard. Drinks crisp and ends with a sharp pop with a slight lingering bitterness. Awesome balance of citrus and pine; would stock the fridge with this as my go-to brew.

From the older can, it pours a slightly hazy amber with a modest head. Lacing as you enjoy it. Some pine and citrus in the nose. Balanced flavor of the east coast ipa style. Drinkable!
