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.

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.

Leighton (11123) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2013
Keg at the Portland branch. Pours clear gold, mildly effervescent with a lingering, white cream head. The aroma gives off strong perfume notes, some bubblegum, citrus. Medium sweet flavor with balanced sweetness, more perfume, floral hops, mandarin orange, pale bread. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Decent hoppy finish, moderately sweet, further floral character. Not bad.
