The next beer in the To Øl hop adventure is now a reality – we present to you Dangerously Close To Stupid. An Imperial IPA at 9,3 % ABV with a close to stupid amount of Citra and Centennial Hops in it. It is a bright crisp and super dry-hopped IIPA with a smooth and balanced body. To make a tight transition between the hop profile and the body we have removed all caramel malts and focused only on basis malts. This is resulting in a nice fresh Spring/Summer IIPA that has a Dangerously Close To Stupid drinkability. We have for a long time been wanting to do a pendant to the Final Frontier Double IPA, that has this rich caramel body and we think we nailed it Dangerously Close to Perfect with this one

0,33l fles gedeeld met Stefan. Amber met een crème kraag. Parfum perzik im de geur. In de smaak ook perzik met mango alcohol wel redelijk duidelijk aanwezig.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2016 Riecht superlecker IMPERIAL IPAig. Andy sagt Dosenananas. Ich sage AMERICANO FRUCHTCOCKTAIL. FETT. Bei der Optik stört mich leider die etwas zu schlammige Trübe, ansonsten aber auch toll. Der Trunk üppig fruchtig, heftig intensiv und vielleicht etwas zu alkoholisch süß. 100 IBUs spüre ich nicht in der Kehle. Trotzdem ist der Nachhall natürlich schön lang und befeuert von kräftiger Schnapsschwere. 0,3/5€ im GUTENBERG Kiel. Fass. Danke Malte. Honigwürze ist allgegenwärtig.

330ml bottle from High Point. BB 15-02-2018. Pours a cloudy golden with a huge white head. Aroma is sweet, juicy, candied fruits, quite heavy, some European hops. Taste i sweet, candied fruits bitterness, slightly crispy. Piney aggressive bitterness. Quite good stuff.

33cl Bottle from Vonk. Hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of oranges, orange peel, light sweaty, pine spray, resin, sweet, yeasty. Flavour is medium sweet to sweet, yeasty, oranges, citrus, lots of barley wine character as well, aspartame, fruity, resin, pine, firm bitter finish. Medium bodied. Good, but not quite what I like.

Only real critique of this beer is that the alcohol becomes a little evident as it warms up. That said, the aroma is stellar. Huge hop assault up front followed by a valiant counterattack by the malt. Overall a solid tasty beer.

Rating #2128 - 2015.10.14 - @7degrees beer school. Pours a golden yellow, with a bubbly white head, Aroma is citrusy, grapefruity, and mild piney hops almost oozing out of this brew.Taste is a bold hoppiness unlike previously experienced, tempered with a pleasant citrusy sweetness that disguises the higher abv quite well, but this bitterness lingers on the palate for a considerable length. Really is close to stupid.

Pinball (11939) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2016
from kihoskh, currently they have quite some selection of to øl bottles in the cellar. cloudy orange, smooth white head. Mild flowery but also dry and bitter hoppy aroma, somewhat light on the malts. Flavor is very pleasant, exotic and flowery hops, just a little bit too sweet malts, and it is a bit too close to cloying for comfort, but this is, anyways, a very drinkable and pleasant serving. Beer tastes much less brutal than the 9% alc. would make you think, Just had a final frontier, i liked that a lot more, but this could be a great introduction to dipa for someone not used to strong ipa’s, and it is quenching and easy drinking.

Konkretne tropiki w smaku i aromacie, niezła goryczka, słodkie ale bez przesady. W wyglądzie dość mętne, bursztynowe, piana słaba. W smaku jeszcze brzoskwinia. Bardzo dobra, bardzo wyrazista iipa.
