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.

Bottle on the beach, York, ME. Not a bad IPA, but nothing special either, drinkable. Says "Maine’s legendary IPA", I imagine there are some better ones.

12oz bottle. Pours a cear pale amber color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet malt and piney hops. Taste follows the nose, with sweet malt to start, and finishing with string piney hop bitterness.

Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 5, 2013
This is a very nice IPA with a nice hoppy aroma, flavor, and finish. It is a great beer to enjoy at the brewery, on draft, with some pretzels.

rondphoto (4383) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Clear light amber color with a persistent head cover, and mottled sheets of lace. Taste is clean malt that grows through the palate to a long, sweet finish in which the hops show up very late and linger well past the finish. Unpretentious, but interesting and very interesting. Recommended.

3.1
BeerandBlues2 (13216) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Tap. Pours clear orange with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is pine, grapefruit and tangerine hops, peach and pineapple esters and straw malt. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.2
Travlr (24333) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Draft in Scarborough Fair. Hazy pale golden yellow color. Aroma of light fruit. Taste is bitter fruit.

Forget the malty, give me flowers flowing and hopping out of my IPA. Not easy to switch to another beer, it makes other IPA’s that I like a lot seem a little too malty in immediate comparison. Cheers to you, cliff jumping freaks! I will drink your six pack and not regret it one bit ( as long as I have no late night whiskey!)

Among the greater joys in life is that I once spent every May & June on Lake Sebago and have taken the plunge off Frye’s Leap itself. Now that I’m no longer in Maine, I take comfort in this hoppy, wonderous beer. Bottoms up!
