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.

Punsch416 (10) - Rättvik, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2011
A golden colored ale with a white frothy head. An aroma of apricot/orange marmalade, candid orange peel, pine forest and something that reminds me of sweat. The taste is dominated by a dry but yet sweet taste of golden grapefruit and yellow stone fruit. It has long hoppy finish of green nature that is well balanced with the sublime malty character that i find in the beer.

Ingevara (816) - SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2011
High frothy head. Fresh smell. Extremely dry flavor, very much hops, a lot more than an IPA should have, this is more like a British ale but it is balanced wiith an escaping touch of tropical fruit. Quite enjoyable. Goes well with heavy food or on its own.
