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.

Tmoney99 (11698) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Bottle. Poured hazy golden color with an average to large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex earthy hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a oily slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good complex brew.

Hazy yellow, creamy head. Nose is tropical fruit, caramel, sweet bready malts, pine resin. Taste begins with sweet biscuit notes, then develops into bitter pine resin, tropical fruit with passion fruit dominating. Slightly dry finish, long lasting bitter aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium to full body.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 6, 2012
Pours a hazy and golden beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with grapefruit, citrus and peach. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good but somewhat one-dimensional beer.

NateDawg27 (6) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012 does not count
Bottle at home. Pours hazy orange. Orange and grapefruit aromas as you’d expect from this kind of IPA. Flavours are massive grapefruit and orange hop bomb. Not as bitter as I was expecting from a 7.1% beer which is quite pleasant. It’s simply amazing.

TheCametron (2014) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 29, 2012
Bottle. Amber gold with a white head. Mobbed by hops. Citrus. Orange and lots of grapefruit. The bitterness is persistant. A hint of caramel malt levels it out. All in all, a fine IPA.

BenH (2890) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with nice white head. Full on citrus hop aroma, mango, passion fruit and grapefruit. Taste is a massive grapefruit explosion, blood orange, no detectable malt flavor. Fizzy and very bitter from start to finish. Like drinking carbonated grapefruit juice. My kind of ipa
