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!

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer and left some lacing on the glass. It is a pale orange color with a little haziness, but good view of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Caramel and bready malts, grapefruit, and other citrus flavors.

Taste: Same as above with some lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and it drinks very easily.

Overall: A nice session IPA compared to others.

I got this on tap at a local pub and had to go pick up a six pack the next day.

A-Nothing spectacular to behold. Looks like a pretty run-of-the-mill pale ale. Thin head lingers but not too long

S-Floral notes. Smells sweet and crisp. Yes, it smells like beer, but it smells like good beer.

T-Pretty much just how it smells. The hops come through, but they're well balanced and the alcohol taste is minimal.

M- A touch too carbonated, but otherwise quite smooth.

O-A very respectable IPA, especially for the price.
