First Frontier tasting notes
To Øl First Frontier is an IPA brewed and dry-hopped with American hops–Centennial, Simcoe and Warrior–and with the only sweetness of Caramel malt, resulting in a strong and punchy hop bomb with fruity tropical notes.
Modern IPA's are decidedly hoppy and bitter, with strong hoppy and floral aromas, specially from American hops such as Citrus and Mosaic. Some versions are dry-hopped to get an even more intense aroma. Its color ranges from medium-gold to amber and even to dark brown and black in the case of Black IPA's. The body is medium-light and the ABV is not very high, in the range of 5 to 7,5% ABV. The English styles have a more sweet character derived of the malts used (giving them a caramel, bread, and toast touch).
