COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: The thing about First Frontier is the hops. Easy… This is an IPA “the American way”, no sticky-sweet malt profile, just the real deal potent and aromatic hops. The result is a refreshingly dry, fresh and bitter IPA, heavily dryhopped with the three American hop varieties warrior, simcoe and centennial, dealing a punch of citrus, peach and grapefruit from the deepest of our hearts directly to ya face. Just added a bit of caramel malt; merely to harness and balance the alcohol. ”We all got pieces of crazy in us, some bigger pieces than other”

Danish: Udgangspunktet for First Frontier er at skabe en IPA ”the american way”, uden en kvalm sød maltprofil, der fjerner fokus fra det IPA egentlig handler om, nemlig potent og aromatisk humle. Resultatet er en dejlig tør, frisk og bitter IPA, der er hårdt tørhumlet med de tre amerikanske humlesorter Warrior, Simcoe og Centennial, som giver noter af citrus, fersken og grapefrugt. Tilføjet er en smule karamel malt, der blot er tilstede for at tøjle og afbalancere alkoholen, der befinder sig på 7,1%. ”We all got pieces of crazy in us, some bigger pieces than other”
Ingredienser: Vand, Malt, Havre, Humle (Warrior, Simcoe, Centennial), gær.

Estebanik (461) - Lublin, POLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Calkiem trwala piana, mimo, że dość gruboziarnista. Aromat slodki, owocowy, winogronowy. Bardziej kwiatowo raczej. Troche płyn do mycia naczyń. Nie wytrawne i nie slodkie - po prostu mdłe. Nieco herbaciane. Mimo wszystko, nie wiele się tu dzieje. W porównaniu do lepszej części naszych rodzimych IPA, to trochę bieda.

drjoeng (458) - - NOV 4, 2015
7%ABV. IPA. Tapped out a nice deep amber. 16ºSRM. Nose has thick milky, cereal-like aromas which are sweet, lactoid and funky. Mouthfeel is carbonated. There are fulll-bodied roasty sweet malt flavors of graham cracker, multigrain toast and a very slight umami wheatiness in the tail end of the palate. Aggressively hopped with a piney, resinous mid palate which continues to bloom into the finish. The finish is hyssop bittter with a clean lemon zest like citrus freshness. Goes on Favorites List!

Hazy orange golden color with a white head. Rich hoppy, pine and fruity aroma. Moderate and controlled sweetnes in the flavor, with a nice bitterness. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Tropical, toffee, mild resin, pine and grapefruit hoppy flavor. Solid IPA.

Excalibur123 (323) - Soria, SPAIN - OCT 31, 2015
Color amarillo oro con gran capa de espuma blanca, jabonosa y de bonito encaje, buena retención; aromas herbales, flores, resina , cítricos y ligero caramelo, en boca entrada potente con amargor medio-alto que se acentúa en el retrogusto y final ligeramente dulce, siguen notas terrosas y cítricas, cuerpo y carbónico medios con alcohol bien integrado en una interesante y compleja cerveza de estilo bien conseguido.
