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.

Purely American by way of Denmark, this is west coast IPA all the way. The hops are luscious and juicy in here. Notes of peach, grapefruit and orange rule, backended with some lightly sweet caramel malt. The flavors meld well here, but the malt fades quickly leaving a drastically bitter lingering finish. Would stand up to a nice fatty earthy cheese.

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Changkat. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, peachy tropical citrus hop. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter, light sweet with a fresh, crisp, tart dry citrus fruit, woody hop bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Crisp and clean West Coast IPA. Hop flavour driven and a nice break from drinking my home brewed stout today. Good beer to finish the weekend off with a Shepherd's Pie in the oven and Strawberry cheesecake for desert, this is how Sundays should be.

Can from Mikkeller Bottle Shop. Hazy orange with pure white head. Hops, unspecific and grassy and pine. Very bitter with earthy and pine wth some floral. If there is citrus here it's so overwhelming I'm not feeling it. Slightly sticky. Took a bit of adjustment but it grew on me.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 Buona. Schiuma spessa persistente bianco sporco. Frizzante spiccato. Banana, mango. Palato molto molto liscia. Finale estremamente secco. Dry hopping tanto pesante quanto buono. Alcol coperto bene non benissimo.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2017 Can 19/8/17. Super balanced, all round cracking IPA. On the nose tick carbonation is perect with mouthfeel being so important as some India pales tend to have this flatness to them that could be described as resinous but i tend to feel it's too little in bright tank. Had a few when drinking this last night but I distinctly remember a perfectly carbonated and balanced but hop forward IPA.

Bottle from Pezinska pivna pumpa. It starts with the aroma which is promising rather dry experience. And yes it will arrive. It is not as citrusly fresh as other IPAs. This is more like a main dish. I can imagine having maybe two a night and then rather switch to something easier. Good anyway.
