Style: American IPA

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!

12 oz can

canned on 4-27-16 (bottom of da can)

Pours hazed, medium almond, typical lite khaki cap, leaving a fine film and low sheeting.

Light n hoppy nose.

Grainy/resiny hops carry the weight here. Decent but not particulary interesting IPA...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look: A beautiful light amber with a foamy head and moderate lacing.
Smell: Full citrusy scent over light maltiness.
Taste: Juicy, citrusy hops balanced with sweet malt background, not overly bitter.
Feel: Good carbonation, very smooth and drinkable.
Overall: Perhaps on the lighter side of IPA, but beautifully juicy and drinkable.
