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.

Cloudy amber pour with a thick, frothy, offwhite head. Pleasant aroma of piney, resinous hops and biscuity malt. Very good flavor of resinous, piney hops with biscuity malt, medium dryness and a good bitter finish. The body is medium to full (bigger than what I expect in an IPA), the texture is oily and the carbonation is medium. This is very good.

rodenbach99 (4060) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Bouteille de 33cl. Achat via IPB à ne pas confondre avec IPA, ce qu’une lettre peut faire. Meilleure avant le 20 décembre 2013, date inscrite sur la capsule. Belle étiquette. Liquide dorée trouble avec une mousse collante. Le nez semble à prime abord sucré, ensuite les agrumes arrivent comme la cavalerie (référence au gars à cheval sur la bouteille). En bouche la bière est bien constituée, la base maltée supporte les houblons résineux. Bonne amertume en finale.

Beersiveknown (4918) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 16, 2012
Ripe peaches and grapefruit abound from this fluffy headed hazy amber beer. Fairly high carbonation with a bitter lupulin hit up front followed by peaches, a touch of chalk and long pithy finish with a hint of caramel. A bit too hop slanted.

SlovakSniper (4813) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
Des bouteilles de 33 cl meilleures avant le 20 décembre 2013. Une robe orangée passablement troublée qui s’offre une spectaculaire coiffe et une dentelle plutôt raffinée. Un nez agréable de pêche et de fruits exotiques subordonnés par des parfums résineux qui repoussent les limites des céréales maltées. Des saveurs florales, légèrement réchauffées par l’alcool, qui sont subitement touchées par des pamplemousses et par une résine à tout moment vivante et tranchante. Une bouche assez complète avec un pétillement modéré et une texture huileuse. Une finale amère de houblons, longue, parfumée et même épicée. Une autre bière intéressante de cette brasserie qui me plaît beaucoup.

Fred82 (2131) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
330ml bottle from IPB. Best before 20/12/13.
Appearance : Pale amber with a big foamy and creamy off-white head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : Grassy oily and sticky hops. Resinous and piny with light caramel notes.
Taste : Big hops, very oily and sticky resinous. Big malt also, more than on the aroma. Pale malt with notes of caramel but not heavy on the caramel. Finish malty and resinous with bold bitterness. Light citrusy notes on the finish.
Palate : Full bodied, could be a DIPA with this body. Soft carbonation. Nice palate.
Overall : Quite a big IPA. A bit too resinous and oily for my taste but rather well made for what it is. Not sure this is super fresh, I would have liked to see a bottled date. quite enjoyable but not my type of IPA.

k0mpsa (2346) - Tuusula, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle at home. Almost clear dark golden color, big white head staying quite long. Fantastic hoppy aroma with fruits, flowers, sweetness, grass. Nice taste, hops, fruits, sweetness, medium aftertaste. Nice basic ipa, nothing special. Medium body.

Solid all around single IPA. Lots of citrus hop on the nose. Peachy in the flavor, nice and bitter throughout, long lasting finish. Yum!

NBird (626) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2012
Medium shade of amber, aromatic hops. Taste is full of hops, malty finish perhaps a hint of spice at the end too. A honest, smooth, hoppy IPA
