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.

rumore (114) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 6, 2016
From tap, at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours loaded gold, with limited white head. Aroma is strongly citrus, grapefruit in particular. Some resinous as well. Body is medium-light. Taste is definitely bitter, with limited malt support. Finish is dry enough, although some residual bitterness is left in the mouth for quite some time.

BlazerT (634) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle. Teku. Orange/lightly amber, medium hazy with average, white, thick and frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Moderate and solid citrus (grapefruit), tropical fruits aroma (mango) and peachy aroma, lightly grassy and mineral notes. Moderate malty backbone - mainly pale malts, lightly toasted, pretty stable, nicely balanced by moderate hoppy bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is semi-dry and grapefruit, quite long. In overall nice, pure IPA without any experimental moves, moderately drinkable with potent hops used.

Light orange opalescent with a bit of a rough poring pillowy head. Aromas of grapefruit zest, lemon and pine predominate with a hunch of unripe peach. Soft carbonation with a light tangy texture and a medium body. Light sweetness with a pronounced resinous piney hop bitterness. Lasting finish.

DeliriumT (501) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2016
I must've got an old bottle, because I'm very underwhelmed. There is very little hop aroma bursting out of this beer. The flavour seems dominated by tobacco type euro hops. It's a nice enough beer, but the high rating confuses me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
