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.

Maria (10143) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2011
It’s hazy/unclear, warm golden with a white, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of exotic fruits, oranges/tangerine and peach among others. The flavour is moderately sweet and has a refreshing bitterness and notes of peach, citrus, mango and the finish has some dry citrus. It’s very harmonic and delicious.

Svesse (6137) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2011
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of grapefruit, pine needles and orange peel. Fruity, malty taste with grapefruit, pine needles, a solid malt foundation and a generous bitterness in a finish with earthy, citric hops. More than medium body, with balanced sweetness. Solid, well made and tasty IPA. Very nice.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle from Vinens Verden. Hazy golden with a big white head. Hoppy aroma dominated by peach, along with pine, grass and grapefruit. Sweetish fruity hop flavour with lots of pine and peach. Very bitter, as in "burns the throat wonderfully".

omhper (19370) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2011
Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Cloudy pale amber, rich head. Saturated aroms of sweaty grapefruity hops. Bready malt forms a dry base for all the hops, and with it’s clean, rounded moutfheel it does not intend to disturb the hop feast going on. Tangerine, lychee, sweat and cat pee, everyone is there and tries to jump for attention, before it gradually turns into bitterness of near stellar levels. Amazing how much hop flavour you can pack into a beer. In theory this is too extreme for me, in practice I love it.

Bottle at CPK, many thanks to Ken. Hazy gold pour with a soft, filmy head. Fresh pineapple in the nose, light cat pee, some honey. Pretty drinkable flavor, plenty of citrus hops, light pine. Medium to big in body with average carbonation. Deep, earthy hop finish, resinous, with light caramel. Quite fresh and organic tasting. Grapefruit rind. Lots of tangerine as well. Really nice.
