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.

Purely American by way of Denmark, this is west coast IPA all the way. The hops are luscious and juicy in here. Notes of peach, grapefruit and orange rule, backended with some lightly sweet caramel malt. The flavors meld well here, but the malt fades quickly leaving a drastically bitter lingering finish. Would stand up to a nice fatty earthy cheese.

Bygers (1005) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a golden color with offwhite head. Aroma is light smokey. Taste is fresh and dry. Not too much citrus, despite the hops. A hint of peatsmoke and roasted almonds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PapaVillum (679) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2015
40 cl på fad, 7,1 % ABV, nydt på Mikkeller And Friends i Stefansgade på Nørrebro, 20. august 2015. Ravfarvet og ufiltreret American IPA med minimal offwhite skumtop på et par mm. Aroma af harpiks, citrus. Smagen er ultralækker bitter med lille næsten forsvindende sødme. Grapefrugt-noter i smagen og en bitterhed, der bare bliver ved og ved. Dejlig balance trods den store overvægt. Zero salt eller surt ici. Mellem fyldig krop med fin frisk karbonering på et middel niveau. Konsistensen er glat og eftersmagen... surprise: bitter og kort. Damn'ed good beer og utroligt dejligt læskende IPA. Læg dertil kanten qua den høje procent.

King_Alex_II (675) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Orange clear color with some foam. Little, light bitter hoppy (pines) smell. The taste is bitter tart with foresty and fruity parts. Bitter tart dryish aftertaste.

minutemat (2587) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2015
330ml bottle from Brewdog.com (I think). Pours hazy amber. Decent sharp floral citrus and moderate pine. Very good to-the-point bitter hop IPA.

A 330ml bottle dated best before 1st October 2016 and poured into an IPA glass. The beer poured a slightly hazy golden orange with a huge cream head that dissipated slowly leaving lots of stringy lacing. Aromas of piney hops with some pineapple and citrus grapefruit and a light caramel malt finish. Taste follows the nose with citrus grapefruit and caramel dominating followed by a piney hop finish. Medium bodied with light to medium carbonation. Overall I thought this IPA is worth a try. While not at the top of its style, it is still very refreshing on a hot summer day.

MichaelAwesome (5852) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2015
Super klassisch mit angenehmer Balance aus Hopfen und Zitrufrüchten. Die Stärke unterstützt das Ganze zu dem noch, bietet vollmundige Süffigkeit und eine wunderbare Ausgewogenheit.

SilverfoX (750) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2015
mouthwatering grapefruit aroma, amber body with white foamy head, nice big fruity flavour then an initially sweet finish with a mild bitterness to end on its ok, too cloying to be refreshing

McTapps (5853) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2015
The beer has got a hazy orange-amber colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste of hops, flowers, grapefruit, citrus zest, pine and herbs. Hints of flowers. Dry-bitter finish.

Botellin de 33cl. Para mí gusto un alto sabor alcohólico y con mucha burbuja.
