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.

Smells good, with distinct notes of hops. The taste is rather less hoppy which I find as a drawback for IPAs. The bitterness is however very present, thus making the hops go away even further from the front. Tastes of grass and even a bit perfume is present.

Aroma is awesome, somewhat sweet and fruity. Taste is not refreshing, but full bodied, sweet, slightly hoppy finish. Nice beer!

Golden brew with offwhite head. Light smokey nose. Taste is fresh and dry. Not too much citrus, despite the hops. A hint of peatsmoke and roasted almonds. Good enogh - easy to drink.

Amber - brown muddy colour with yellow - light brown head. High up rising bubbles. Aroma without presence of alcohol, notes of flovers, herbs, pine. Similar is taste: without presence of alcohol, with flowery, pine hop notes and with notes of wheat, dried fruits of malts. Hop bitterness is medium, the same is malt sweetness. Astringency is medium, body is dry, bitterness medium, hop bitterness in finish is very good and long lasting. Very good IPA but still not superlative.

J’aime beaucoup ça et si l’alcool pouvait descendre en dessous de 5% ainsi le prix, chuter aussi; j’en ferais bien ma bière de soif pour cet été. Attaque très acidulée mais sans le sucre. L’idée que l’on peut se faire d’une salade de fruits idéale après un bon repas de grillades au bord de l’eau ... Je me comprends .... ! ... Très désaltérant donc et se boit très (trop ?) facilement

Cloudy orange, big frothy head. Dry, bitter, hoppy... straight down the middle American style IPA. Nice, but a bit two dimensional.

Bij melgers vandaan. Gedeeld met bryan. Goudoranje met een witte kraag. Geur en smaak heerlijk fruitig met Perzik in de afdronk ook beetje dennenhars. Lekker

Bottle. Quite disapointed by this one. Yes, there is hops. But giving only bitterness, and almost no aroma. Very unbalanced beer

Marko (4263) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 19, 2015
Again, shared with Hrabren and Habek. Yay! Poured a murky deep golden body with an off white head that stayed there for awhile. Lovely fresh aroma, peachy, fruity, hoppy and general. Only medium sweetness (yaaay!), not excessive bitterness. Superbly executed, very balanced and simply put damn tasty IPA.
