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.

Bottle. Golden and slightly cloudy. Lively upon opening. Hoppy with flowery presence and a bitter finish. Nice example of this style.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2014
Huskelapp til meg selv: En heftig og begeistret am. pale ale som jeg har hatt stor glede av ved flere anledninger. Her er det mye av alt, men likevel elegant balansert. Denne må jeg kjøpe flere av neste gang jeg er innom Kihoskh!

Bottle from CBB. Hazy orange with small lasting head. Tropical fruit and citrus hop aroma. Flavour has some pine hops as well to give a more dry bitter finish.

JohnRMurdoch (3281) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2014
330ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Hazy orange brown, not much head. Grain resin hop aroma. Sweet fruity biscuit hop flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. Big tasting but a bit unbalanced. Disappointing for To ol.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 7, 2014
12oz bottle. Golden hazy pour into the pint glass. Large white to off white head that lasted throughout, some soapy lacing on the glass. Tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit, orange zest, some caramel and biscuit. Taste had the traditional flavor of the hops used, grapefruit, tropical fruit, floral, zesty, but there was also an interesting salty aroma. Full bitter finish, nice oily mouthfeel.

Review for thebeerguy. I gave this a solid 9 on my review. Expect early citrus flavours with drastic bitterness. Add in Grapefruit and some carrot cake (I picked some spices up) and there you have the podium for a real bitter finish. Quality beer.
