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.

Maris (1137) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 17/2/2015. Pours a cloudy medium golden with a big fluffy white head. The nose is lovely - oodles of tropical and stone fruit with lots of honey notes topping it off. The flavour follows suit, with lots of sweet passionfruit, lychee, mango, peach and apricot, with bucket loads of honey in the middle. While a very sweet IPA, there’s enough lingering grapefruity hops at the back to keep thins really interesting. The plate is slick and the carbonation average. A trul wonderful IPA with dessert overtones.

MarcoDL (2790) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle. Golden beer, foamy head. Aroma of caramel, bread and pine. Buttery taste of peach, pine and biscuit. Fruity bitter finish. Nice, but a bit too modest.

Turtles (359) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle 330ml at Mbargro Stockholm Hornstull. Smells like that beautiful, exampled American IPA, aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, buns, bread roll and oil. Taste of strong hops, bitter-sweet, sweet hard candy, fruit, biscuits, orange peel. This is very good.

Pedrens (164) - SPAIN - FEB 8, 2015
Botella. Color ambar claro. Espuma blanca potente y persitente. Aromas afrutados melocoton, uvas, algo floral. En boca el amargor predomina sobre el dulzor bajo. Los sabores similares a los de aroma con algo mas floral herbal. Textura fina-media. Carbonatacion media baja. Final no demsiado amargo. Floral y presistente....buena IPA. De barril recien pinchado tiene q ser brutal.

jc1762 (181) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 2, 2015
Poured into a small taster glass showing a deep dark hazy amber with a very light foamy white head. The nose shows extremely subtle sweet round malts with very little hop influence. There’s actually very little aroma and somewhat too underplayed. The palate is highly carbonated and full bodied. The malts support most of the bitterness of the hops. Poured fresh the hops are refreshing and somewhat citric and pine-like. The finish shows off the typical sharp bitterness you’d expect from an American Pale. Overall, an average to slightly above pale ale.

MSBrindbergs (563) - Solna, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2015
Flaska på Marie Laveau. Förbannat vacker i dimmig orange dräkt och ett fluffigt vitt skum. Doftar fint av grape/mango-combo. Fin tropisk sötma, men skjuts ner av en vass beska fort. Torr. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
