Frye’s Leap IPA is an American-style India Pale Ale with a strong hop flavor and aroma. Frye’s Leap IPA gets its fruity hoppiness from extra dry hop conditioning. We pour 1 pound of hops per barrel directly into the conditioning tank and let hops release their oils into the beer. This creates the pronounced floral aroma associated with our IPA.
Frye’s Leap IPA is brewed with three malts. The two caramel
malts create the light copper color while the American 2-Row
pale malt creates the fermentable sugars from which we ferment.
This is how we achieve the 6.0% ABV
Frye’s Leap IPA is light copper in color has a medium body with a strong hop flavor and aroma.

During the British rule of India in the late 1700's breweries would send their beer to the troops. Unfortunately, the long, warm journey would ruin the delicate pale ales. To solve this problem, brewers created India Pale Ale, a stronger ale with high levels of hops and alcohol for preservation. We have followed the British tradition and created Frye's Leap IPA with hops and malt grown in the United States.
Frye’s Leap IPA gets its
name from the popular cliffs on Sebago Lake in Southern Maine.
Locals and tourists alike pull up in their boats to watch
daredevils scale and jump from cliffs.
