COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The next beer in the To Ĝl 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

spacecube (1220) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2015
330ml bottle, pours cloudy gold with a foamy white head. Big citrus hop notes, Seville orange, lemon, zesty tangy fruits over light biscuity and caramel malts. Light sweetness from the malts but this is balanced nicely with the hops to impart a dry bitter finish which hides the abv well. Body is medium, light oily texture with fine carbonation. There is a bit too much yeast in the bottom which makes it appear less refined than some beers but other than that this is a top notch dipa.

luser2000 (110) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 3, 2015
Kellemes illat, testes íz jellemzi, a háttérből kibontakozó picit karamellás jelleggel. Kiegyensúlyozott ital, de erős is. Simán "hülyére" ihatod magad! ;-)

dresden (1109) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
Hazy copper orange with some floaties. Fruity hop aroma - citrus, mango, pineapple. Sweet, but light malt character, lots of hops, still pretty bright and easy drinking. Alcohol totally hidden.
