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.

Bottle from Party Source at home. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a hint of orange and a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, caramel, biscuity, citrus and earthy hops with some resiny character, pretty decent for a European IPA.

Estoy planteándome seriamente pedir la nacionalidad danesa si eso incluyera el disfrute subvencionado de IPAs como esta. Por Tutatis!

Hold da op! At de to drenge der brygger har haft Mikkeler som lærer i gymnasiet, må siges at ha’ smittet af. Den er meget humlet, den smager af frugt, tør egetræ og har en eftersmag af noget citrus. Virkelig en IPA i den gode ende.
