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.

Good bitterness, but not as good as it could be. Dry and accessible in terms of palate. Too citric for it own good, but a high profile IPA nevertheless.

loco_gallego (146) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 19, 2014
Blonde dorée pâle, voilée. Bonne persistance. Au nez résineuse, et très portée sur les agrumes-citrus typiques de l’houblonnage américain. Légèrement sucrée-caramel. En bouche petite acidité et bonne amertume balancée du début à la fin. Bonne longueur. Carbonatation moyenne.

Bottle, 330 ml from Za Popent, Ljubljana. Pours orange with white head. Sweetish with lots of tropical fruit hoppiness, light caramel and pine. Medum to full bodied. Dry and bitter finish. Great one.

tricksta_p (1341) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2014
Aroma of tropical fruits, orange, mango, grass, fresh hops. Flavour is light sweet with a nicely strong bitter finish. Fantastic IPA, just the way I like ’em: fruity and bitter.
