Lovely pine/grass/citrus aroma when you first open the bottle. Pours amber gold with a great head. Sharp fresh flavours finishing with a dry finish - but not too dry and lingering. Very fresh beer. Alcohol hidden. Very good. Will be looking forward to trying more of their beers.

First Frontier pours a glowy light orange color. A good two finger head and great lacing throughout the glass as you drink.
The aroma on this beer was hard to find at first. Just a good amount of pale malt. I was kind of disappointed but as it warmed up a bit more and more came out. Caramel malt, citrus, grapefruit. Not overwhelming, but just nice.
The taste was weak in the beginning too but as you drank, it added up more and more into a really nice IPA. At first more malt came through than hops but by the middle of the glass I was picking up more fruits. Grapefruit, tropical fruits, with some pine. Still not overwhelming on the taste buds but really nice and I enjoyed it a lot.
The mouthfeel is light, dry, and carbonated nicely
