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.

Nice aroma, murky in appearance, taste dominated with hops. Quite bitter that lingers and actually takes over the beer with isn’t great.

Bouteille 330ml, courtoisie de SlovakSniper. De couleur ambrée-orangée et voilée. Nez de houblon résineux, terreux aux notes citriques et herbeuses, moyen de caramel et de fruits (agrumes, traces d’abricots) avec quelques traces d’épices (poivre très doux). Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texturre huileuse et aux petites notes résineuses. Goût moyen-amer de houblon terreux, légèrement citrique et résineux (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) et accompagné d’un goût fruité (agrumes, traces d’abricots) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de malt sucré du genre caramel terreux avec des traces de biscuits puis en finale l’amertume de houblon prend un penchant plus résineux, légèrement plus herbeux et asséchant avec quelques notes poivrées. Post-goût long et un peu sec, moyen-amer de houblon résineux, légèrement citrique et herbeux avec des notes terreuses ainsi qu’avec un léger goût fruité (zeste d’agrumes).

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2013
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe, drunk today. Hazy gold, with a bit of suspended sediment. Pours very thick white head, with small bubbles, persisting well as full covering, right to the end. Med carb. Aroma - Reasonably pleasant; not that strong. Bittersweet citrus, pink & white grapefruit, orange, bit of tropical, floral, faint yeast. Taste - Mid to strong bitter, quite strong DRY citrus; white grapefruit, some orange. Some grassy, green, polleny, hop oil & floral notes. Lightly spicy (more so on finish). Just a touch of creamy malt. Strongly bitter residues, with little flavour, persisting for a long time on aftertaste. Med-light body, lightly creamy and quite astringent. Nice hops in there and would be a good IPA, if it wasn’t quite so bitter: Just a bit too much for me.

fantti (955) - FINLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin vaalean oranssina, vaahto on todella iso ja pilvinen. Haju on päärynäinen, mangoinen, pihkainen, havuinen ja greippinen sekä hieman puinen. Kaiken kaikkiaan valtavasti hedelmää löytyy hajusta. Maku on mieto, ja siitä löytyy havua, puumaista humalointia ja greippiä. Suutuntuma on mieto ennen miellyttävän humaloinnin iskemistä. Kokonaisuutena tämä on upean hajuinen, mutta melko miedon makuinen IPA.

MartinT (9499) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed cereals and flower petals placed on tropical fruit lead to a dominating coniferous hop forest.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Sizeable foam atop cloudy pale amber.
-A bit too much yeast in the bottle, even when letting the bottle stand for weeks.
-Intense, but not as clearly defined.
-High carbonation produces beautiful head, but also obfuscates the flavor profile as well.
-The aroma offers nuance, but the flavor profile is all pine and bubbles.
-This is a flavorful, but rough-and-ready hop infusion.
-Malts aren’t clearly defined.

Bottle.

tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2013
From notes - Sample pour of hazed, rich yellow. Nose is light hop, crisp, citrus and lemon with light grain - mostly hop. Flavor is all hop, crisp, bitter, citrus lemon peel, light grassy notes. Light to medium body with decent lacing.
