Frye’s Leap IPA is an intense experience. From the American caramel malt, which gives Frye’s Leap IPA its golden color, to the unique and intense dry-hopped aroma of pine and grapefruit, this beer is every bit as exciting as its namesake.

Draught. Golden copper pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of pepper and piney hops. Nice even, medium bodied taste of pine, pepper, malt and faint citrus with a decent bitter finish.

[tap] Balanced citrus and pine aroma from floral hops with a touch of caramel. Almost clear bronze with a lacy, white cover. Quite bitter flavour with tons of floral and citrusy hops. Pine and caramel flavours come in later with a dry bitterenss. Light body, moderate carbonation, bitter finish.

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2010
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. A- Body is a very cloudy translucent burnt orange hue. Pours with a sticky, foamy 1-2 finger off white head. Head has perfect retention at 1/2 finger and tons of lacing is left all the way down the glass. S- Nose is very mild and somewhat dull. Its hard for me to discern anything but herbal and earthy hops. T- Earthy hops are the highlight of the flavor upfront with a mild pale malt backbone. The finish is slightly herbal and a hint of pine resin sneaks in as well before a mild, but long-lasting hop bitterness kick in. P-Medium tingly carbonation and a medium weight body that is rich, smooth, slightly oily, and creamy. O-I’m sure this has faded somewhat from what it was fresh...this brew is one of the best looking IPAs I have seen in awhile and the mouthfeel is excellent. Flavor is above average-but nothing exceptional. Its certainly smooth and very drinkable but only somewhat enjoyable. Great to try a NE local IPA Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-05-2010 18:01:41

caramel, floral, butterscotch in the aroma. Appear bright orange with persisting off-white head. Sweeter than I expected in keeping with the caramel malts. Strong bitterness that dissipates quickly leaving a lightly sweet toffee finish. Tasty beer but more sweet and malty than a typical AIPA.

A golden IPA with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, light hops with light peppery notes. In mouth, a good crisp malt with very British hops, herbaceous, grapefruits, medium bodied. On tap at Portland location, April 2 2010.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with no bottling or expiration date. It pours a fairly cloudy copper-pale yellow color with little to no head. Good lacing. Floral hops permeate the aroma to the point that I thought I was standing next to a flower garden. I had to ask myself where were the bees? The mouthfeel is about medium. The taste is also very floral and hoppy with a citrus tartiness that gives this one a pungent flavor. A bit too over the top for my tastes but hop lovers might like it.

Has an amber color. Aroma is of centennial hop. Taste is of hops and a little citrus. Has a nice bite in the end. Nice one.

Pours amber with a white head. Smells perfumy with some floral hints and spice. Tastes spicy and peppery with some floral hints and a citrussy, bitter finish.

Massive head; cloudy orange. Tons of carbonation. Aroma is chlorine and flowery hops. Decent but underwhelming. A decent hop flavor with some weak pale malts. Kinda "eh."

In short: A fluffy IPA with a basic malt backbone and a good amount of fruity hops. A bit dirty but pleasantly tasty. Decent.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden blonde body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose shows a lot of fruity hops (citrus, grapefruits, oranges, etc.). Far from a crisp brew, this one felt yeasty and fluffy. Cake-like maltiness, smooth honey and caramel. Really felt like a fluffy cake. Hops really take over the finish. Very fruity bitterness of medium intensity with also a dry dirtiness with tree bark hints. Not crisp or refreshing but overall rather tasty. Prides itself to be “one of the hoppiest beers in Maine at 55 IBU’s”. Yes, at 55 IBU. And I’m also on the best cook living in my house.
