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.

villevav (267) - FINLAND - JUN 3, 2011
I guess this was served too cold, since the beer felt a bit straight forward. Our average IPA, not better or worse.

rebella (39) - SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2011
Bottle. Aroma and taste of simcoe (tasty!). White head and golden in apperance. The aftertaste is a bit bitter, but it’s very well balanced. Nicely carbonated.

Sigmund (5462) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2011
At Copenhagen Beer Festival. Hazy deep golden colour. Strong and pleasant aroma of American hops (Warrior, Simcoe and Centennial), fruity and piney notes. The flavour is also dominated by said fruity hops, but is not too extreme. Noticeable malts with a little caramel balance the flavour nicely. Very good!

Scopey (8036) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2011
Bottle at CP&K. It pours hazy dark straw yellow, with a thick foamy head and lively carbonation. The nose is pine, bread, yeast and sweet caramel. The taste is resin, brown bread, lemon, lime zest, grapefruit, wood, astringent and some metal, with a long bitter and very dry finish. It is very savoury and far too fizzy for me.

Joakgust (1041) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle, 33cl - Hazy orange beer with a large white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of caramel, lime, some ammoniac and perfume. Flavor is fruity with notes of citrus, lime, grass and herbs. Super refreshing, not sure the beer is as fresh though. Still really good.

LoFi (1637) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle. Dark golden, slightly hazy, with a large, foamy white head leaving a lot of lacing. Aroma: peaches, peach candy, caramel, some pepper. Taste: grapefruit, peaches, pineapple, lemon, pepper, light caramel, above medium bitterness. Dry finish with bitterness from grapefruit, pine, resin. Medium-bodied. Tasty and fresh, but pretty basic IPA.
