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

lello4ever (719) - ITALY - JUN 19, 2016
Colore dorato, velata, bella schiuma molto fine e compatta. Al naso una buona dose di sentori floreali, erbacei, lievito e qualche agrume. Splendida bevuta, con ingresso maltato. Frutta esotica, fiori, bel luppolo che segue tutta la bevuta fino alla fine. Carbonazione media e l’alcol sostiene alla grande senza eccedere.

GenkiGonzo (1074) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle from Bradleys. Cloudy, deep gold with some sediment. Sweet mango aroma with grapefruit behind it. Very smooth thanks to the understated malt backbone. Hints at sweetness but is still dominated by the hop bitterness. Hides the alcohol really well.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 15, 2016
Feb. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured hazy yellow body with quite big head. Elderflower, pineapple, other tropical fruit aroma. Bitter flavor, especially at first, herbal and peppery. Later on malt came rounding it with mildly sugared (is that even a word?) biscuit and caramel. Seemed like a medium bodied brew due to hop bitterness but malt fully opened up in its long and malty vanilla&biscuit finish. Later on, when I thought it’s all over, some light residual bitterness again showed up. After-aftertaste... new words mood obviously. Dangerously-close-to-stupid-easy going, felt like a very low ABV pale ale, however it could be hinted in some more complex ways like "serious" hop-malt game along with light tingling on the tongue. Just excellent!

Kita (1914) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours murky clay like color with rocky white head, great lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, passion fruit, mango, yeast, herbs and pine. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and resin, follows by refreshing yeast. citrus and passion fruit, mouthfeel is astringent, while finish is heavy herbal bitter. Full body, syrupy texture and average carbonation in palate. Unbelievable yeast and tropical fruits’ concetraction at the end of bottle...
