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.

Tangerine, pineapple, banana, even some mango, amazing aroma. Hugh white foamy head with some soap like bubbles. Mild at first with a little kick at the end. Not the best IPA ever but this one’s nice. Great label too. Bought at the De Molen Bottleshop in Bodegraven.

RichardGretton (4564) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle. Cloudy bronze beer with a strong head. The aroma is deeply hopped, and the flavour is well hopped with a very, very long dry finish. Overall a very nice strongly hopped pale ale.

sloth (2756) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Large, rocky white head with good retention and a heavy lacing. Lightly hazy, dark gold copper hued ale. Juicey nose of grapefruit, and some piney resiny notes. Body is almost full, oily, juicey and resiny. Lots O hop goodness, pine, resincitrus large, fat and munchy. Dry finish with a rather large bitterness, which is ggod, duh. Big IPA, well done. Bottle procured @statelineliquors. Nice!

Kristall-König (2667) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2011
Sehr fruchtiger (Grapefruit, Maracuja) Geruch. Antrunk zunächst erfrischend zitrusartig. Mittig kräftig bittereinsetzend, würziger. Abgangs noch bitterer und trocken; nur noch leicht zitrusartig. Bier mit Charakter - ein gutes IPA.

12 ounce thanks to Jarrett. Nice orange body with good carbonation. Basically, grapefruit meets pine. Grassy bitter aroma. Some caramel. Very different.

ClubGonzo (5089) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2011
Bottle. Gusher. When the action ceases, I see a hazy light orange body with a medium white head. Nose is grapefruit, citrus, skunky grass/weed notes and hints of kiwi in the back. Very original and very, very nice. Taste goes on in the same direction: grassy skunky bitter hop tones with sharp citrusy orange marmalade notes. Mellow and forthright at the same time, and obviously a sterling crafted brew. With an original overall profile to boot - and the extremely fresh taste - this really is a "hidden gem", and clearly one of the best IPAs I’ve had in a long time.

deyholla (9636) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates slightly but remains throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with a bit of resin and a light grain backing. Flavor begins with grapefruit that is joined by pine and a bit of resin in the finish.

obguthr (5257) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Cat urine smell. Clear amber, medium head. Flavor is like the aroma, but with a floral element, rosehips. Leafy lemongrass finish. My friends didn’t like it, but I didn’t find it all that objectionable. Ok.

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 13, 2011
Orange body, big white head. Orange and grapefruit, along with caramel, in the hoppy aroma. Easy drinking, medium body. Sweet and hoppy, with a bitter finish. A very nice IPA.
