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.

i try to be as objectional about english ipa’s as possible, and most american english-style ipa’s are really good up front, its the second half of the pint that gets a little annoying. once your palate gets used to the hops, its the malts that start to get that sickly sweet, almost nutrisweet flavor that is in no way appetizing or satisfying, it just tastes artificial.

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.

Holdwine (1135) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Well, it is hoppy. Not sure they put the hops to best use. More out-of-control bitterness dampened slightly by the faint malt character.

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 (1052) - 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.
