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.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2007
Sample from bottle at the Halifax Seaport Beerfest. Golden amber colour with a mostly diminishing off-white head. Toasty and fruity aroma with pine notes. Biscuit and bread flavours with a grapefruit and light piny bitter finish. Medium bodied, lightly juicy, firm mouthfeel. Straightforward IPA.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Light copper body with moderate effervescence. Medium off white head. Powerful citrus notes with some light sweetness. Malt backbone of toasted bread and light caramel. Really impressed with the hop choice and usage. Ripe, fresh citrus character dominates without it being tart or astringent. Big lemongrass component with a touch of pine and maybe some herbal hints. Quite impressed with this one.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
355ml bottle. Nice, unfiltered look. Taste really didn’t do it for me on this one. Aggressively earthy to the point of dirt, mild grapefruit, malt got totally lost. Not nearly well balanced enough to be truly enjoyed.

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.

BiddleBrau (1019) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2012
From BOtM club. Golden color, slightly hazy, nice looking frothy white head. Faint citrus floral pine aroma. Hops right up front but finish is very earthy and green and grassy. Malt is fairly subdued. The start of the flavor is pretty promising but the finish is not crisp. The overall approach to this IPA is on the lighter side.

12oz bottle to glass - Spicy and dry are the two descriptors here. Quite nice.

Pours golden in color with a lasting white head. Hoppy aroma. Pretty generic. Medium body, short finish. Forgettable.

kevd193213 (927) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Draught. Golden copper pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of pepper and piney hops. Nice even, medium bodied taste of pine, pepper, malt and faint citrus with a decent bitter finish.

12 ounce can. Pours a pale yellow with a nice white head. Nose is pine, with undercurrents of citrus and malt. Taste is moderately bitter. Decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2010
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. A- Body is a very cloudy translucent burnt orange hue. Pours with a sticky, foamy 1-2 finger off white head. Head has perfect retention at 1/2 finger and tons of lacing is left all the way down the glass. S- Nose is very mild and somewhat dull. Its hard for me to discern anything but herbal and earthy hops. T- Earthy hops are the highlight of the flavor upfront with a mild pale malt backbone. The finish is slightly herbal and a hint of pine resin sneaks in as well before a mild, but long-lasting hop bitterness kick in. P-Medium tingly carbonation and a medium weight body that is rich, smooth, slightly oily, and creamy. O-I’m sure this has faded somewhat from what it was fresh...this brew is one of the best looking IPAs I have seen in awhile and the mouthfeel is excellent. Flavor is above average-but nothing exceptional. Its certainly smooth and very drinkable but only somewhat enjoyable. Great to try a NE local IPA Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-05-2010 18:01:41
