The next beer in the To l 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

Bottle 0.33 l. Cloudy liquid, looks like apricot juice. Average yellowish head. Full body, light carbonation. Rich with taste of fruits like pineapple, apricot and peach, citruses, touch of herbs. Medium sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness, long lasting finish. Very good one.

PapaVillum (764) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2014
330 ml, flaske, 9,3 % ABV, købt i Mikkeller & Friends' Bottleshop, 15. august 2014. Ufiltreret orange/honning-farvet Imperial IPA med stor offwhite skumtop, 7 cm. 1' indtryk: Sød-/syrlig aroma af citrus, honning, græs. Holy smoke, this is gut! Dejlig balance mellem en solid og dog ydmyg sødme og den fine humlebitterhed. Sødmen er næsten som en fin sommerkåbe til det bitre. Smagen er krydret og har den på-grænsen-til-det-beske-afslutning, men lidt mere forfinet i denne øl. 2' aromaindtryk: fersken, blomst. Stald. Fyldig og rund krop med let perlende mundfornemmelse. CO2 under medium niveau. Blød og fræk skarp på én og samme gang. Eftersmagen er både fin, lang og afbrudt. I virkeligheden er den bitre smag nok i "overtal", men i parløb med en sådan sødme, er det dén, man bemærker. If this is "Dangerously Close To Stupid", I don't mind being regarded as retarded! Pure enjoyment!

Butelka 33cl. OCZY : kompletnie mętne piwo o kolorze jasnej pomarańczy. Piana jest wielka jak na ten styl. kolor piany jest biały. NOS : aromat piwa jest intensywny ale co mnie zaskoczyło, jest bardzo owocowy i cukierkowy a alkoholu nie czuje prawie wcale. Po wzburzeniu świeżość piwa jest rwnie zaskakująca. Wyczuwam aromaty tarty i herbatnikw, zielonej herbaty, mandarynki, skorki pomarańcza, pompelo i cytryny, marakui i mango. USTA : piwo jest średnio gazowane o konsystencji mleka. Piwo jest zaskakujące bo po nazwie spodziewamy się mnstwa goryczy a tutaj piwo jest delikatne. Nuty słodowe przypominają typowe dla tego stylu smak lekko skarmelizowanej tarty. Słodycz natomiast pochodzi rwnież z nut owocowych. tak jakby przesłodzony sok owocowy albo popijany sokiem cukierek owocowy. Gorycz jest średnia. Przypomina pestki słodkich cytrusw. Posmak jest subtelnie gorzki i przenika delikatną słodyczą. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest smaczne i zaskakujące. Po pierwsze mało gorzkie a po drugie alkohol jest fantastycznie dobrze schowany. Piwo przypomina bardziej zwykłą IPe niż Imperial IPe. SMAK : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 8/10 styl : 0

MunBro (943) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Aroma was a big blast of hops and citrus. Had a 4 finger foam head despite a polished pour into an IPA glass but it faded down to a proper size quickly which was appreciated. Very well balanced hop bitterness with the citrus and malts. A great DIPA!

wvhoran (455) - Tasmania, - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle with Sylvia and Floris. Cloudy orange with a large creamy off-white head. Monstrous aroma of thick peachy hops, citrus, pineapple, and caramel. The flavour follows suit, with huge sticky sweet hop flavours, tropical fruits. Kind of syrupy. Great stuff, kicking off IPA day well with this one.

Aroma: heavy, juicy, fruity hops. Exotic. Taste: again dominated by tropical hops. Solidly bitter, but not OTT. Very good!
