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, hazy, big - slowly collapsing - creamy white head with a good lace, exotic fruits and herbal hops in the dry bitter nose; dry bitter flavour, some sweetish (caramelly) flavours underneath; lingering citrussy-resiny finish. Really good, but exciting....

A grassy/citrus/fruity hops, bready malts
T: grassy/fruity hops, toasty/bready malts
This is a nice IPA. My only real complaint is the hops are to grassy in aroma and flavor. I like how dry it is,really refreshing.

Bottle 33 cl. Hazy, dark golden yellow with an orange glow. Large gvidt head with good durability. The aroma is lightly malty and moderately hoppy with clear notes of citrus, pine and grapefruit. The taste follows the nose and is typical of the style. Good fresh mouthfeel and a nice bitter hop finish

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.

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.

Bottle procured @statelineliquors. Nice!
