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.

fkoolen (233) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Hazy yellow, white creamy head. Big hops in the nose and taste, fruits like oranges, peach and lemons, a nice bitter bite, pine, very little malt tones. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation, medium body, mouthfeel’s a bit oily.

reebtogi (4088) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and citrus with some pine hop notes. Taste is a herbal and citrus hop bitterness with a grainy malt hoppy sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A good IPA which is full flavored and definitely recommended.

330ml bottle from Brewdog shop. Substantial off white head, good lacing. Hazy amber body. Nose is pineapple, citrus, brown sugar, pine. Flavour is bready and malty initially, some caramel, then grapefruit and peach on the finish. Good lasting bitterness. Medium carbonation, well rounded mouthfeel with a bit of chew. Bitterness of the aftertaste seems to build the more you drink, hops outdo the malt in the long run.
