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.

omhper (19372) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2011
Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Cloudy pale amber, rich head. Saturated aroms of sweaty grapefruity hops. Bready malt forms a dry base for all the hops, and with it’s clean, rounded moutfheel it does not intend to disturb the hop feast going on. Tangerine, lychee, sweat and cat pee, everyone is there and tries to jump for attention, before it gradually turns into bitterness of near stellar levels. Amazing how much hop flavour you can pack into a beer. In theory this is too extreme for me, in practice I love it.

Bottle shared with Mes&Sim, Leighton and Scopey at the CP&K. Cheers! Hazy amber beer, ghost of a white head. Softish palate. Sweetish hops - a little paint in there somewhere. Also fresh grapefruit keeping things lively. Finishes sweet and semi dry. Original rating 3.4.

6th April 2011
Bottle from Bier Koning. Hazy amber beer with a good off white creamy head. Nice fresh hops. Start off piney grassy but gives way to orange marmalade and then grapefruit bitterness. Trace of pineapple as well. Creamy malt background. Nice IPA!

fiulijn (14549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2011
Cloudy blond color; medium sized head. The hop aroma is citrusy and a bit creamy. The mouthfeel is bone dry, with some dry toffee flavor and strong bitterness, some resins and light lemony touch. The final tends to be bitter and aggressive. Pleasant but unrefined.
