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.

Questa ipa danese è una bella sorpresa di freschezza e aromi ben bilanciati che portano questa birra ad essere ricordata a lungo, sopratutto per i luppoli rari utilizzati.

marcotetta (80) - - MAY 15, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2017 Drinked in bottle, unfortunately not too fresh. Maybe 5 months old but is still a great beer this means quality and a well made beer. The normality for tool. At the nose pine, dark green herbs, some pink grapefruit and hints of alcohol. In mouth is medium bodied. Quite bitter but well balanced. A long after taste where a pleasant bitterness is mixed with sweet notes.

vincentvega72 (650) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2017
Mooi oranjekleurig troebel bier met romige witte schuimkraag. Beetje gistig aroma. Perzik, lychee, beetje meloen. Heeft zelfs een heel kleine saison-touch. Redelijk zoete ipa. Vol in de mond met mooie droge bittere afdronk. Prima bier.

A very classic and well done American Style IPA. Not much more to say about it. No particularly original notes or aromas or anything. Big bitterness.

adamnowek (2467) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 27, 2017
Light sweetness with considerable hoppy bitterness. Nice and dry. Not particularly creative, but perhaps a great example of what the style ought to look like.

ianwelby (1326) - SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2017
Can. Hazy yellow, a few bubbles, frothy head. Light, sweet lemon aroma. Taste is dry, hoppy citrus up front. Tropical fruit that goes from dry to a bit more mellow and sweet, though it’s still quite dry and bitter in the aftertaste.
