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.

Benzai (9995) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2011
Hazy orange color, rough head. Smell hops, fruits, lightly musty and soap. Still good though. Very hoppy bitter taste that lingers on the back of your tongue. Medium carbo, medium body.

wlajwl (4613) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Pine and hints of yeast in the aroma. The appearance is gold-orange with a billowing head and some cloudy turbidity. The flavor is of grapefruit with an edge to it that is earthy. Sort of a mix of the hoppiness of a AIPA and the maltiness of an EIPA. Pretty good, doesn’t fall into the traps that many EIPA-leaning IPAs do.

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 (5792) - 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.
