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.

mjs (6342) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2011
(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20111026) The beer poured amber and quite cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had pine, grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, pine, grass, malts, alcohol and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Quite bitter and bit too thin body for the hop profile. Still ok.

33 cl bottle, rated on 02.04.2011
Fruity aroma with some grapes and resin. Flavour has also grapes and resin with some floral and citrus notes. Both aroma and flavour contain some unpleasant element I am not able to describe better. But a decent IPA anyway.

Bitter flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Dry malt-character with fruity, flowery and slightly resiny hops leading into a dry and moderately bitter finish with a delicate but also rounded malty sweetness. Pleasant. 12.X.11

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.
