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.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, - DEC 20, 2012
Cloudy amber pour with a thick, frothy, offwhite head. Pleasant aroma of piney, resinous hops and biscuity malt. Very good flavor of resinous, piney hops with biscuity malt, medium dryness and a good bitter finish. The body is medium to full (bigger than what I expect in an IPA), the texture is oily and the carbonation is medium. This is very good.

7%ABV. IPA. Tapped out a nice deep amber. 16ºSRM. Nose has thick milky, cereal-like aromas which are sweet, lactoid and funky. Mouthfeel is carbonated. There are fulll-bodied roasty sweet malt flavors of graham cracker, multigrain toast and a very slight umami wheatiness in the tail end of the palate. Aggressively hopped with a piney, resinous mid palate which continues to bloom into the finish. The finish is hyssop bittter with a clean lemon zest like citrus freshness. Goes on Favorites List!

Hazy orange golden color with a white head. Rich hoppy, pine and fruity aroma. Moderate and controlled sweetnes in the flavor, with a nice bitterness. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Tropical, toffee, mild resin, pine and grapefruit hoppy flavor. Solid IPA.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle. Very lively pour creates a rocky cream coloured head on a hazy orange body. Grapefruit/citrus zest, light caramel, moderate bitterness. Nice.

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2015
Keg at Mikkeller and Friends, RBESG ’15 day 3, 22/08/15. Very lightly hazed golden orange with a decent off white covering. Nose is light pine needle, orange pith, straw, melon. Taste comprises tangerine, bread dough, citric pith, straw, lemon zest, melon. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with restrained hop bitterness. Ok - seems a little subdued compared to To Oi’s usual standards.

jrodooo5 (1341) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle cap is marked 3/24/13. Pours a pretty burnt orange w/ a retaining white head & lacing. The aroma has a nice citrus undertone. The taste is citrus, grapefruit, & a little boozy. It’s quite nice on the palate at this stage for being such a "in ya face ipa." Pretty darn good 2.5 years later!

Bygers (1028) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a golden color with offwhite head. Aroma is light smokey. Taste is fresh and dry. Not too much citrus, despite the hops. A hint of peatsmoke and roasted almonds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PapaVillum (736) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2015
40 cl på fad, 7,1 % ABV, nydt på Mikkeller And Friends i Stefansgade på Nørrebro, 20. august 2015. Ravfarvet og ufiltreret American IPA med minimal offwhite skumtop på et par mm. Aroma af harpiks, citrus. Smagen er ultralækker bitter med lille næsten forsvindende sødme. Grapefrugt-noter i smagen og en bitterhed, der bare bliver ved og ved. Dejlig balance trods den store overvægt. Zero salt eller surt ici. Mellem fyldig krop med fin frisk karbonering på et middel niveau. Konsistensen er glat og eftersmagen... surprise: bitter og kort. Damn'ed good beer og utroligt dejligt læskende IPA. Læg dertil kanten qua den høje procent.

King_Alex_II (790) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Orange clear color with some foam. Little, light bitter hoppy (pines) smell. The taste is bitter tart with foresty and fruity parts. Bitter tart dryish aftertaste.
