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.

BenH (2198) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with nice white head. Full on citrus hop aroma, mango, passion fruit and grapefruit. Taste is a massive grapefruit explosion, blood orange, no detectable malt flavor. Fizzy and very bitter from start to finish. Like drinking carbonated grapefruit juice. My kind of ipa

NateDawg27 (6) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012 does not count
Bottle at home. Pours hazy orange. Orange and grapefruit aromas as you’d expect from this kind of IPA. Flavours are massive grapefruit and orange hop bomb. Not as bitter as I was expecting from a 7.1% beer which is quite pleasant. It’s simply amazing.

subcombicio (163) - Marghera, ITALY - AUG 30, 2012
Questa ipa danese è una bella sorpresa di freschezza e aromi ben bilanciati che portano questa birra ad essere ricordata a lungo, sopratutto per i luppoli rari utilizzati.

Armadill0 (260) - FINLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is strongly piny and hoppy. Refreshing. Taste hits you midway through. Strong piny taste with a smooth body. Bitter crisp finish. A very nice IPA though this maybe lingers on the APA border. Really good.

Unde (338) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Hazy and golden beer with thick and big head which is durable and leaves beautiful lacing to the glass. Scent has lots of citrus fruits, some grape and sweet tropical fruit. Taste continues with same flavors as the nose, with lots of citrus and grape fruits. Sweetness is hidden under the hoppy flavors, very nice bitter taste with lots of hops. Just the way I like my IPA. Brilliant beer to celebrate IPA-Day with!

Great gold-looking beer and little bit hazy. Also great head in color of honey. Aroma is dominated by american hops - fruity and citrus notes. Very pleasant. Tastes wonderful. Very mild in flavor, slightly oily, extremely pleasant. Bitterness is moderate, which lasts preety long. Accurate carbonation. Really great beer.
