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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
In short: A yeasty bready backbone and a generous amount of fruity resinous hops. Tasty blond hoppy beer.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed approximately one year before expiration date.
The look: Cloudy pale amber body with lots of small particles and topped by a medium white head with good retention leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: The powerful nose is rather fruity with peaches, grapefruits, pineapples, bananas, apples, and more. The fruity aroma didn’t feel like it was only hops-fruity, there were other fruity esters too. Also some floral notes in the aroma. Taste is smooth on the malt front, rather yeasty (like many European IPAs), honeyed cereals that felt very wheaty, some banana bread, fresh pineapples, plenty of fruity hops, plenty of hops resin, strong yeast presence. A certain wheat-like acidity, this beer feels a bit like the new trend of hoppy wheat beers (the so-called white ipas), I don’t know if it is indeed wheat-based but it tasted like it to me, somewhat similar to the Harpoon White IPA I had just the day before. Not many people know that First Frontier is an expression used to describe an explicit gay sexual position, you probably didn’t know it because I just made it up, but it made you wonder for a second or two.

sfuen03 (362) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAY 5, 2013
Pours pale amber, low carbonated, high presence of sediment. Generous head, creamy, very long-lasting. Vanishes into a good wide film. Aroma remembers of resin, pine, fruits (pinneaple?), herbs. Mouthfeel is oily, alcohol is well masked, finish is gentlely fruity, bitter but not overwhelming. Taste is very fruity, pinneaple, peach, lemon, very smooth and the perfect bitterness.

Bottle 33cl from Henrik thanks, a cloudy orange beer with huge head and good lacing. Nose is intense on fresh fruit such as grapefruit, mango and apricot. Aroma is on bitterness and fruit hops on grapefruit and lichee, low body, very intense bitterness at the finish with citrus note. Only for the summer !

mjakopa (266) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - APR 24, 2013
Pours a cloudy yellow/orange with substantial head that dissipates after a while. Aroma is hoppy and fruity but the body is slightly sweeter than expected. Caramel malts balance the taste and prevent it from being too dry, but the hops linger until the aftertaste in which they become much more predominant. An interesting combination of tastes that balances itself.

BitchPls (800) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2013
Can not see through this light brown beer with an exceptionally big foamy head which is pretty brief though. Typical aroma for an american style IPA. Body is medium. Lots of grape fruity hops and the bitterness stays for a long time.

maxwelldeux (4373) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a fairly cloudy light amber color with a thickish white head. The hops have a little bit of citrus to them, but smell old like it’s been on the shelf too long. Taste is definitely bitter, but generically; it seems a bit muddied to me. Not a huge fan of this. Probably was a lot better fresh.
