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.

Marko (4175) - 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.

danlo (1502) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
330ml bottle from Brewdog online store. Golden orange colour, frothy white foam head leaving lacing and aroma of malt caramel, floral fruity, citrus, hoppy. Taste is malt caramel balanced with fruity hop resin notes and spicy, pine & grapefruit bitterness. Smoothish mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry spicy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Bottled 330ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Golden coloured, medium sized white to off-white head, whiff of caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, fruity, fresh hoppy and touch of alcohol with dry hoppy finish. Again not bad at all.

Lots and lots of pineapple, medium amount of bitterness in the aftertaste. Very refreshing and (again) very pineappley.

Drucken på flaska. Torr, fruktig och med fin efterbeska. Bra men inte bäst. Lite citrus, persika och grape. Yeehaa

UXO (670) - CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
Pours slightly hazy medium gold with three fingers of rocky white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is citrus, peach, pine, caramel malt, light floral. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Fairly similar to their Southern Frontier, but without the corn adjunct flavours. Brighter hops, lighter malt, marginally heavier ABV - what’s not to like? (15/20)

lmastr (35) - Norma, ITALY - MAR 1, 2015
Quite good IPA. Appears cloudy amber, with a continuously reforming head (at least for my bottle), has a good balance between the fruity opening note and the pleasant bitterness that prepares the mouth for the next sip.

Sjohnh (361) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Cloudy burnt amber with a big frothy off-white head. Nose of piney citrus. Mouthfeel is fairly light and a bit creamy. Taste has orange, lemon and grapefruit, with some caramel malt leading to a lasting bitter finish. Refreshing and well balanced - would have preferred just a bit more firepower.
