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.

Questa ipa danese è una bella sorpresa di freschezza e aromi ben bilanciati che portano questa birra ad essere ricordata a lungo, sopratutto per i luppoli rari utilizzati.

daje (2304) - NORWAY - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden body with a big white head. Citrus hoppy aroma with grapefruit, tangerine, light grass notes. Taste follows the same fruitiness, with hints of caramel, good balanced bitterness, with a light sweetness carrying it through without becoming harsh, hoppy fruity aftertaste. Simple, refreshing and fruity, sometimes those ipas are the best.

wvhoran (208) - Tasmania, - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Hazy orange with a large, creamy and lasting white head. The aroma has notes of peach, lemon, grapefruit, plenty of simcoe. Come to Daddy. The flavour follows up on the aroma with plenty of fruity hops, grapefruit, peaches, orange, dry and bitter.

Xavalias (134) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle, 7.1%. Pours cloudy amber with a persistent creamy medium off-white to pale yellow head, lots of lacing. Aroma is medium hoppy, pine resin, earthy, grassy. Taste is medium bitter, dry, slightly astringent. Medium bitter finish. I expected more in aroma from a To Øl, this one isn’t more hoppy than the lager Raid Beer for instance, though a bit more bitter.

matis (110) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Draught. Hazy, dark orange colour with thick head. Great collection of citrusses on nose. Hoppy, without a malty base. Dry in taste, west coast IPA.

planky84 (2105) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle share with Desverger. Cloudy amber pour with a white head. Nice nose of summer fruits and herb. Dried fruit and citrus in the taste. Quite a tasty number.

Swaroga (1322) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Butalka 33cl. OCZY : zamglone o kolorze pomarańczowym. Piana jest spora i trwała o kolorze białym. NOS : intensywne aromaty cytrusów i egzotycznych owoców takich jak marakuja, ananas i mango. Szklaki, tarta, herbatniki i delikatnie sernik. USTA : piwo jest trochę bardziej gazowane niż przeciętne IPA. Konsystencja piwa przypomina oranżadę z kapką mleka. Piwo jest faktycznie wytrawne i mocno aromatyczne. Słodkość jest oczywiście wyczuwalna ale od początku jest tylko w tle. Pod tym względem przypomina belgijską IPe. Nuty słodowe herbatniki i tarte. Do tego dochodzi herbaciana ziołowość. Cierpkość cytrusowa zapowiada gorzkość, która jest podobna do niedojrzałego mango i pestki mandarynki. Posmak jest cierpki i gorzki. ODCZUCIA : świetne piwo. Tak właśnie lubię IPe : jak najbardziej wytrawną możliwie. Do tego wzorowo aromatyczna. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : +2

MunBro (337) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Aroma strongly of strong citrus and hops. A lighter golden orange pour with a perfect two fingers of creamy white head. Very lovely tropical flavours with no malt presence which I like a lot. A great IPA.

Klimaet (133) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy light yellow-golden orange with a medium shortlasting white head. Aromas of mango, orange peel, slight grass, slight booze, pretty grassy hops aswell. Taste is pretty hoppy, grass, earth, orange peel, citrus.

maekchu (2097) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Fluffy caramel souffle aroma, with mango and slightly pungent hops. Nicely bright medium straw color. Light peachy, mango flavors with a mild hop blend. Medium body. Nice enough, but it does get a little cloying toward the end.
