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.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2011
330ml bottle from Barley Wine. Slowly diminishing off-white head almost blanketing the glassware. Near-clear, amber-orange body colour. Fresh fruit hoppy aroma with oranges to the fore. Tropical fruity taste along with citrus shells and herbs. Clean bitter ending. Smooth. Well built ipa (hotel room, Copenhagen 02.11.2011).

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Hazy straw orange pour with a dense white head that lingers for the duration. A heap of mango and citrus rind on the nose. Orange and lemon zest mingle on the toungue throughout the taste. Mango and passionfruit finish the beer. A sharp bitterness quickly finishes off the brew and lingers and lingers. Full mouth feel. Fantastic ipa

jgb9348 (5676) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Very hazy golden coloured body with a large (three centimetres tall) tan head with a lot of action. Aroma of grassy, herbal and bready hops with a lot of yeast, malt, sweetness and alcohol. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal hops up front with a nice and prolonged bitterness that shows off very well. Aftertaste is still bitter, some alcohol and yeast notes are noticeable and a good dry herbal and grassy finish. Overall, a very well done IPA that shows a lot of potent, grassy and high alpha acidic hops in a great balance. Overall, a nice beer and very enjoyable after completing the 36th Marine Corps Marathon earlier in the day, here at home in Arlington on 30-October-2011. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 04-September-2011 for US$6.75 sampled at home in Washington on 30-October-2011.

tiong (6438) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2012 Draught @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Pours yellowish orange with a small sticky head. Aroma of exotic fruity hops and malts. Taste is quite fruity and slightly malty. Finish is bitter and hoppy. Nice IPA, but could’ve used a bit more body.7-3-8-4-16 =3.7

Re-rated on 31.3.2012. 355ml bottle @ Drink Baar, Tallinn, Estonia. Much more hoppier and tastier from a fresh bottle. Nice, well balanced and hoppy IPA.

mjs (6459) - 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.

laiti (8069) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2011
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.

(bottle, 33cl) Cloudy, orange colour with a blond and thick foamy head. Fruity hoppy aroma with exotic notes of pineapples, mango and guave, accompanied by a floral touch. 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
