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.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Nikki’s Liquors, 4/30/15

Aroma: It has strongly fruity aroma, grapefruit/orange, caramel, and some herbal notes.
Appearance: The pour is clear orange with a clean white head, and some fairly strong lacework.
Flavor: The flavor is solid, not quite as good as the aroma, nice sweetness/bitterness balance.
Palate: The mouthfeel is clean, with a medium body, average carbonation, and a mid-dry finish.
Overall Impression: This is a good, solid IPA. It isn’t a top of style offering, but I would happily drink it again.

PhatB420 (714) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2014
12oz bottle into glass. Pours a cloudy marmalade amber. Head is hefty, large, 3cm, and full. Aroma is piney, fresh cedar, dry melon. Taste is bitter hops, bitter orange, floral qualities, and sweet tarts. I hear abv is at 6, that seems more appropriate. OK IPA from Maine, but there’s better out there.

Pours a copper color with a fair white head......aroma of mostly pine (which could be smelled when the crown was removed), slight citrus......taste is much heavier citrus than the aroma let on, adequate mouthfeel, pine in the background, well bittered and quite a clean finish.....nicely built ale.

A mild IPA. Not bad but not good either. Amber color with a modest head. Faint aroma, might be hops? Taste is mostly malts not much of the hops promised by the brewers description. Finish is clean. A middle of the road IPA.
