COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have followed the British tradition and created Frye’s Leap IPA which is one of the hoppiest beers in Maine at 55 IBU’s. Brewed with American 2-row, caramel 20L & 60L Highly hopped with Cascade, Centennial and Nugget and aggressively dry hopped with a mixture of Centennial and Cascade. Frye’s Leap IPA is an American-style India Pale Ale. It has a strong hop flavor and a medium body. Frye’s Leap IPA is light golden in color with a fruity hoppiness that comes from extra dry hop conditioning. The IPA is perfect on a summer day it pairs well with spicy foods, vinaigrettes and grilled vegetables. It also is great with oysters, clams and chilled soups.

Pours amber into a shaker. Head quickly recedes leaving spot lacing. Mild resin aromas. Grapefruit from front to back with a lasting dry resin finish.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - JUN 25, 2008
From the bottle pours a light orange or brown. A small head with a strong aroma of hops. It is a bitter beer. Probably the best IPA from the Maine Micro brew crew - to this point at least.

Draft. Poured a deep amber body with thin head. Aroma is citrusy hops. Flavor is citrus hops, sweet malty tones with some vegatable evident.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2009 Rerate: Hazy amber with a thick white head. The nose is pretty nice. A touch of light grapefruit over a soft crackery malt base. The flavour is pretty basic, but it works pretty well. I’m not sure what the deal is since the last bottle I had was pretty infected, but this one is drinking decently. A fairly peppery finish and a bit of light pine as well. Light amber with a huge (overcarbonated) rocky head. Very dusty aroma with a lightly oxidized cardboardy character. Lightly crackery. Some nice hoppy grapefruity aroma with a fairly citrusy hoppiness, but it doesn’t quite come together. The flavour isn’t quite right. Oxidized and cardboardy and not very good. A similar harsh minerally note as is present in the stout, but in the stout it kind of works... here not so much. 5 2 4 2 9

Bottle. Pours a deep dark amber with a soft white head. Fruity raisin aroma along with caramel. There was something about this beer that was just a little bit off.

kramer (4684) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper body with a one finger foamy white head that left tons of lacing. No visible carbonation at all. Floral hop nose with a hint of iced tea and light toffee malt. The flavor is of moderate bitter floral leafy hops over a toasted and slightly toffee tinged malt base. Lingering husky bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with moderate soft fizzy carbonation. Overall, an average at best IPA, nothing special, but drinkable.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2007
The aroma was earthy with aged malt and sucking candy caramel. The hops were light. Malty caramel flavor with a hint of citrus at the very end. Dry finish.
