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.

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!

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.

Bulk_Carrier (3013) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JAN 16, 2013
It was clear and golden in color. The head was moderately sized, slightly bubbly, and off-white. It left just a bit of lacing. The smell had some herbs to it, but mainly orange and just a bit of pine as well. The taste was mildly sweet and floral, the orange comes back ever so slightly. The palate was medium also with a medium carbonation with a decently strong body. Overall, it is a very drinkable beer that I would come back to.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2013 Very bitter but good citrus and pine aroma. I’d buy it again.

Burnt orange with a 2 finger head. taste is very bitter. simcoe and centennial. very bitter for the ABV so it lacks balance. Lots of pine resin and chewy. Hint of grapefruit.

This is a pretty good IPA that doesn’t compare to some of the other truly awesome IPAs from Maine, and elsewhere in the NE. It has a nice crispness to it, especially on tap, but to me it is held back by a slight wateriness, and too restrained a flavor. It’s an IPA that doesn’t really have a dominant thing about it, which is a big thing missing for an IPA. . . but what is there tastes fine.
