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.

Pours a hazy orange with an off white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is bitter, of hops, grapefruit, floral notes, caramel, and grass with a medium bitter finish. Drinkable, solid IPA that goes down easy.

Golden orange golden pour with a dissipating head. Nose is citrus and pine. Drinkable IPA with bitter hoppiness and citrus. Carbonation soft with a light texture. Finish is dry, hoppy with a sweet bitter ending. Quaff Score

GBBF. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Smooth palate, a little dry. Fine carbonation provides a sting. Fresh hops provide further sting. Pine dominates but there is fresh juicy orange and other citric things. Semi dry finish with good fresh hop bitter linger.

Slightly hazy orange yellow color with thick white lacing. Floral aroma with a slight grapefruit feel. Medium mouthful with a lingering floral hop feel. Good cooler weather beer.

Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma has mild stonefruit...peach and mango. Flavor follows suits and adds some pine notes. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly resinous with a bitter, earthy dry finish.

I really enjoyed this IPA from a personal-new brewer. I had never heard of Sebago until my neighbor brought home a couple bottles of this IPA for me. The Frye’s Leap is very tasty and delicious! It pours a light amber color with a soft, thick and pillowy off-white head. The head leaves come really nice lacing that cascades down around the edges of the glass. The nose is very spicy and abrasive, just the way I like the aroma to be for an IPA. I noted some grapefruit, pine and light yeast in the nose. The body and flavors are very bright, bitter, smooth and creamy. The beer is very dry and fairly spicy, with bitter and sour notes of grapefruit, pine, lightly toasted bread, yeast, grass and lemon. The beer finishes very smooth, dry and sticky. The aftertaste really leaves me wishing for another (and very quick) sip.
