Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 5, 2013
This is a very nice IPA with a nice hoppy aroma, flavor, and finish. It is a great beer to enjoy at the brewery, on draft, with some pretzels.

rondphoto (3976) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Clear light amber color with a persistent head cover, and mottled sheets of lace. Taste is clean malt that grows through the palate to a long, sweet finish in which the hops show up very late and linger well past the finish. Unpretentious, but interesting and very interesting. Recommended.

Forget the malty, give me flowers flowing and hopping out of my IPA. Not easy to switch to another beer, it makes other IPA’s that I like a lot seem a little too malty in immediate comparison. Cheers to you, cliff jumping freaks! I will drink your six pack and not regret it one bit ( as long as I have no late night whiskey!)

Among the greater joys in life is that I once spent every May & June on Lake Sebago and have taken the plunge off Frye’s Leap itself. Now that I’m no longer in Maine, I take comfort in this hoppy, wonderous beer. Bottoms up!

boomerbrew (143) - Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2013
On tap at "Great Lost Bear" in Portland, Maine. Aroma was hoppy like any other IPA. Gold with off white head. Great hop florals taste that was nice on palate. This was my favorite of the three Sebago styles. Nice overall.
