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.

Out of the bottle today at Portland Pie. Pours a solid golden yellow color with a thinnish off white head that slowly dissipates. Smells of citrus hops mostly, its an old school aroma of bitter hops with a hint of caramel and bready backbone. The flavor follows the aroma quite well, citrus and a hint of pine flavor and bitterness with just enough malt to keep it form being astringent. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Nice IPA, not great but much better than some of the other options at the Shipyard pie company.

Pours a light yellow with a normal head and a sweet hop aroma. I like the flavor - it’s on the hoppier side but decently bold. Dry hop flavor, goes well. I’m impressed.

Dogbrick (7570) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2012
This brew is a clear copper-gold color with a medium foamy off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lace. Aroma of citrus and malt. Light-bodied with a mildly bitter hops character with some metallic notes behind it. Touches of sweet malt and ripe fruit as well. The finish is short and hoppy. Not up to par.

Draft. Pours clear gold with a white head. Light floral hoppy aroma with light grainy notes. The flavor is grainy with grassy and floral hoppy notes. Not bad.

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 7, 2012
Draft, brewpub Portland. Transparent golden color, tiny white head, some how even with light head it did have some retention. Nose of citrus hops and mild malt. Taste has a solid amount of bitterness. Hopheads would like this, if not they have a double IPA. This has a nice lingering bitterness that stayed with me after I finished. Only down fall is the body is thin.
