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.

Good bitterness, but not as good as it could be. Dry and accessible in terms of palate. Too citric for it own good, but a high profile IPA nevertheless.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - JUL 12, 2012

GTAEgeek (1473) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2012
330 mL bottle. Pours dark gold with a huge, off-white head and thick lacing. The aroma is pine, grapefruit, cereal, and orange peel. The flavor is intensely bitter, with a mild malt sweetness. The palate is surprisingly light, astringent, and sticky. Overall, this is a good IPA, but nothing special.

tlind2 (1320) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy golden color, lasting white head. Resiny hop aroma. Dry, bitter flavor with overwhelming piny hops. Medium body, medium carbonation. An attractive beer for hopheads, to be sure, but definitely not my thing.

Ibrew2or3 (7478) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Poured up on tap at the Delirium Hoppy Loft with clear deep gold colored body with thick copper core supporting a nice white head of foam that leaves behind full sheet lacing. The aroma pushes up a mix of apricot, grapefruit and mango along with some spicy hops and faint malts sweetness. The flavor unfolds with fairly rich near chewy hoppy goodness like tangelo, grapefruit and a bit of mango and all held apart by a wedge of pine hoppiness. The hops ride right into the finish where they dry out the experience some. Darn tasty, this.

ddemmingjr (783) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle: pours dense, cloudy orange, soft off white head with lots of lacing on my Duvel glass. Nose is distinct De Proef, citrus, grapefruit, mint, bread malt and yeast, distinct spicy hop dankness. Love the nose. Roasted malts, dank hops from dry hopping simcoe, spearmint, bread malts, then bitterness and herbal malt sweetness on the finish. Perfect balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
