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.

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.

Hazy gold color, piney-citrus aromas. At the beginning the hops are very strong but then they leave you a nice bitter aftertaste. Nice one.

Shared a 33cl bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, fruity and malty. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is well balanced a little more bitter than sweet with a long dry and bitter finish. Overall, a very nice "american" IPA.

Huskelapp til meg selv: En heftig og begeistret am. pale ale som jeg har hatt stor glede av ved flere anledninger. Her er det mye av alt, men likevel elegant balansert. Denne må jeg kjøpe flere av neste gang jeg er innom Kihoskh!
