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.

DSG (12552) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks troubles. Slightly hazy golden. Aroma of slightly stale floral hops. Flavor has light sweetish graininess and a big lingering bitterness. Medium-bodied.

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2012
Det här är en riktigt god och humlekraftig öl. Den har en lagom avvägd kropp och är i stort välbalanserad med en mustig efterbeska. Humlesmaken i sig är framförallt blommig. Slutsats: en mycket god öl.

Sammy (11516) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
An above average IPA, an expensive one, perhaps more so than it was worth. 1.5X an IPA in bitterness, and that was still well malted. Tasty citrus flavour, refreshing, and good drinkability. Enormous head in my Sam Adams glass. Not outstanding but worth a try.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2012
([email protected], rated 2011-11-07) Murky orange with a very small head. Exotic fruit, grapefruit, pale malt in the nose. Fruity flavor with a touch of glue. Maybe slightly rough bitterness, but sampled after fresh Petolintu, feels quite tamed. Medium body, quite crisp, low CO2. Slightly rough, but balanced IPA.

lamas (1611) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 4, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle. Date on the cap: 24/03/13. A cloudy copper pour with a thick and fluffy beige head that leaves chunks of lacing behind. A pleasant aroma of peaches, oranges, grapefruits, citrus rinds, light apricot, a little pine, and a touch of caramel. Medium-bodied. Semi-sweet caramel upfront taste-wise that quickly fades to a drying biscuity maltiness in the middle. Grapefruits and orange rinds in the drying, bitter finish. A dash of pepper at the end. The malt presence is lacking on this otherwise solid brew.

Decent IPA. Nice piney bitterness. The mat bill is pretty crappy though. It doesn’t pop.

jkwood04 (5355) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 24, 2011
On tap in a tulip. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma of strong citrusy/piney hops, caramel malts, and a little bit of dough. Flavor about the same, really strong on the hops. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Poured cloudy light Orange with a nice white head. Aroma was citrus, grapefruit, and lemon pledge. Flavor was citrus, pine, and some slight bready yeasty notes. Body was light and fuzzy.

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Slightly hazy golden Orange pour with massive seafoam head. Citrus piney and peach hop aroma. Flavor is similar, but has a harder bright hop edge. A bit old tasting. Medium low carbonation. Moderately bitter finish.
