BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sebago Brewing Company
United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

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!

Poured from a 12 oz can into a clear glass mug. Canned on 080916 on bottom of can.

A: Clear amber with not quite 1-finger of off-white head with short retention but decent sheets of lacing down the glass.

S: Pretty light aroma with some pine and grapefruit blended with light caramel malt notes.

T: Flavor is a nice east coast IPA with a fair amount of caramel presence which is not sweet but nicely balanced with medium bitterness from pine resin, grapefruit, lemon, and tea-like hop character. No alcohol or yeast notes.

M: Light-to-medium body with moderate carbonation with good mix of sticky hop oil with light caramel body.

O: Great example of an east coast IPA which stays relatively light and drinkable despite the stronger caramel presence. Avoid cloying although I think it drinks a bit more like an imperial APA.

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...
