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.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JAN 24, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 The aroma has some pineapple, lemon, grape - very very hoppy. The taste has lots of bittering hops, I can tell quite lemony and just very bitter for an IPA. Not malts malts evident, only a bit to create some balance. Classic IPA on the bitter side of the scale.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a thick, creamy and white head. Aroma is mild peachy, grapefruity and mango. Flavour has the same, solid bitterness. Smooth mango mixed with a grapefruity hops. Ends bitter and rather fruity.

dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2011
Pours hazy orange withe at nice creamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, peach and orangepeel. Flavour of red (sweet) grapefruit, peach, pine and again orangepeel - the grapefruit both starts and finishes the beer. Long aftertaste and nice creamy mouthfeel.

thewolf (12992) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Kihosk, Cph.
Murky orange with a medium, fairly firm, fothy, off-white head. Aroma has peach, plant sap, some oranges and quite a bit of overripe melon. Light doughy malts base. Medium carbonation, lightish and good dry mouthfeel. Flavour has nice hops, an okay malt base if a bit simple and doughy. Piney, dry, high bitterness, peach and light melon again. Perhaps a bit rough around the edges, but still instantly drinkable.

3.5
JanLaursen (3226) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2011
OK take on an all american IPA. Loads of hops, but a bit too simple on the aroma, with all the usual tones of pine and citrus. The same goes for palate, the malt-base is a bit one dimensionel. But a nice beer if u r a hophead just like me.

3.7
Plovmand (8702) - Grindsted, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2011
Bottle. The beer pours hazy deep golden with medium off white head. The aroma is very fruity with notes of peaches, grape fruit, citrus and pine. The flavour is spruce, citrus, passion fruit, grass and caramel. Some sweetness in the finish with a good fresh bitterness. Very nice.

3.6
Skinnyviking (9806) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle. Medium high fluffy but lasting white head leaving nice long lacings. Slightly hazy amber body. Peach lemon aroma. Powerful relatively sharp hops bitterness on a solid malt caramel base with low carbonation and good long dry and bitter aftertaste.
