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.

JorisPPattyn (9879) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2012
Thick, creamy, yellowish head over hazed orange beer. Something sharp-acidic, but very fleetingly, then classical citrussy USA hops. Hint at banana(ester). Very bitter, woody and even quinine-like bitterness, rather harsh and not very discriminate. Gradually some relief comes into play, with grapefruit- and other citruspeel. Fried vegetable oil, retronasal. Slightly burning MF, very creamy feel from the head, beer well-carbonated. Long sharp-bitter aftertaste. If you haven’t any subtlety to offer, go for the knock-out...

drinkbaar (9) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 16, 2012 does not count
Lovely pine/grass/citrus aroma when you first open the bottle. Pours amber gold with a great head. Sharp fresh flavours finishing with a dry finish - but not too dry and lingering. Very fresh beer. Alcohol hidden. Very good. Will be looking forward to trying more of their beers.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2012
On keg at the Craft Beer Co. Pours a dark golden colour with a thin white head. Lovely hoppy aroma of pine, pineapple, passion fruit and alcohol. Similar flavours. Nice and bitter with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Alcohol is fairly present with a very dry finish.

Keg at Craft. Cloudy orange colour with small white head. Aroma is mango, b.o. hops, bitterness, pine. Taste is quite fruity, orange grapefruit, lots of bitterness and a touch of sweetness too. More boozy tasting than percentage suggests. Malty finish. Quite nice.

drunkenpolack (319) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2012
First Frontier pours a glowy light orange color. A good two finger head and great lacing throughout the glass as you drink. The aroma on this beer was hard to find at first. Just a good amount of pale malt. I was kind of disappointed but as it warmed up a bit more and more came out. Caramel malt, citrus, grapefruit. Not overwhelming, but just nice. The taste was weak in the beginning too but as you drank, it added up more and more into a really nice IPA. At first more malt came through than hops but by the middle of the glass I was picking up more fruits. Grapefruit, tropical fruits, with some pine. Still not overwhelming on the taste buds but really nice and I enjoyed it a lot. The mouthfeel is light, dry, and carbonated nicely
