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... medium murky peach with a big off white head but it doesn’t stay long... light floral nose with a big amount of fruit mango with a touch of pine to it... the taste adds a ton more pine, a touch too much for me but there is almost enough fruit puree notes to balance it out, chemical pine resin becomes more distinct the more I drink... ok ipa, but nothing I’d have again

marcus (7673) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours cloudy blonde with a thick off-white head and a perfumy aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor that is somewhat overwhelmed by piney hop bitterness. Puckeringly good.

vyvvy (4737) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Pour amber / orange with a large pillowy white head. The aroma has milk caramel malt, mild toast, gentle hoppiness that is floral and citrusy and light band aid. Medium body that’s a little prickly and lots of mouth-filling carbonation. The taste starts off with the toasty caramel malt, then there is a hop presence of pine, earth, citrus and dirtiness. There is also some tropical fruit and funk. The earth and dirtiness seem like they are showing some age on the beer and mutings some of the other flavors. This is good, but if this was fresher it would probably much better. Guess that is the problem with getting imported IPAs. So it goes.

Defreni (2860) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2011
Fad: Gulorange uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er meget citrus og en smule kattepis, for meget for min kone men ikke for mig. Lover en rå smag, som der bestemt også er. Meget amerikansk rå IPA uden nogen form for frugt til at balancere den, men den fungerer.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2011
Bottle. It’s an unclear, orangey golden beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. Nice lacings. The aroma is very piney and grapefruity, with some space left for maltyness. Flavorwise there’s a lot of bitterness and green pine cones, some sugary peaches too. A bit too sweet I think. It’s full-bodied, smooth and quite nicely carbonated, finishing bitter and with flavors of grapefruit and pine cones. A nice beer indeed, but in my opinion a bit on the sweet side. 110803

larsga (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2011
Big offwhite head. Clear amber body with light carbonation. Strong pineapple and resin aroma with strawy notes. Bittersweet resiny wooden strawy taste with pineapple notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish strong, fruity pineapple aftertaste with salty grassy notes. Too harshly hoppy, but otherwise nice. (0.33l bottle, Salling, Århus.)

hopdog (9994) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2011
11.2oz bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an averaged sized off white head. Some spotty lacing left on the glass. Aromas of citrus, some floral hops, pine, and a little ’musty’. Tastes of citrus, caramel, and a little spicy. Somewhat thinner body.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2011
Tap at Blue Monk. Deep hazy golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is lovely with a lot of orange peel and resinous hops. Lots of zesty/spicy hoppiness and a fairly assertive dank bitterness. Really hoppy and fresh. Tasty stuff.

caesar (5828) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2011
Bottled. Slight hazy golden color, big rocky off-white head. Aroma is a very nice balance of hops, spicy, slight resiny, citrus. Quite bitter taste, hint of biscuity malt. Finishes fairly dry. Not too overpowering, but crisp and fairly dry bitterness with a nicely balanced aroma. I’m not surprised of the rating it has, great IPA.
