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.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Darien. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of big hops... resin, pine, herbal. A bit of toffeeish malt. The taste is similar... resin and pine hops... but with a bit more pronounced toffee malt. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. A bit disjointed, but almost in a good way, like it’s taking you on a journey. Solid beer.

On tap at Sebago, Portland ME in April 2010. Clear amber colour. Rather restrained aroma. Quite strong grapefruit hop flavour. Prominent bitterness. Some fruity notes. Good clean bite. Not a huge hop monster but a very decent, drinkable IPA.

I had this more than once, they dry hop it, serve it on cask, all but make beercycles for you to take home (I can do that myself). I like the dry hopped version the best, but the on-tap version I had was funky yeasty aroma, hoppy, lacey, was fine.

Cask@GBBF2012. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, caramelly and quite nicely balanced. Flavour is sweet malts, fruits, nectar and some grass. Ends in a big grassy bitterness.

Scopey (8471) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2012
Cask at GBBF (at 6%). It pours golden yellow, with a thin bubbly white head. The nose is grapefruit, tangerine, melon, orange, leaf, some manure and sweaty sock. The taste is straw, hay, resin, pine, citrus pith, grapefruit, light spice and some alcohol warmth, with bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and slightly syrupy mouth-feel. Decent stuff, but I imagine this would be better with more carbonation (i.e. from a keg).

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.
