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.

maekchu (2127) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Fluffy caramel souffle aroma, with mango and slightly pungent hops. Nicely bright medium straw color. Light peachy, mango flavors with a mild hop blend. Medium body. Nice enough, but it does get a little cloying toward the end.

Bärnstensfärgad med stort ljust skum. Doftar mycket grapefrukt och citrus. Grapefrukt dominerar i smaken och beskan ligger kvar länge.

Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Gyldenbrun. Høyt tett skum som varer lenge. Spotlacing. Litt uklar. God aprikosaroma. Smaken tørr frukt. Etterlater en ikke god ettersmak.

reebtogi (4180) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and citrus with some pine hop notes. Taste is a herbal and citrus hop bitterness with a grainy malt hoppy sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A good IPA which is full flavored and definitely recommended.

Bottle at home. Aroma: lots of American style hops, various citrus fruits. Taste: bitter and hoppy. A bit one dimensional, but very pleasant beer.
