COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

CapFlu (4958) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
Pours a lasting white frothy head atop a cloudy orange peach body. Nose of pine sol and soap. Very deep in citrus flavours: Seville Orange, Mandarin and passion fruit tossed in. Very very yummy.

Tognetta (531) - Campinas, BRAZIL - SEP 24, 2015
Alaranjada, bastante turva, mas sem particulados, espuma regular branca de média formação e persistência, aspecto cremoso. Aroma predominantemente resinal, dulçor caramelado, leve aroma de pêssegos, fermento, um pouco menos intenso do que o esperado pra uma DIPA. Paladar segue as características do aroma, mais dulçor que amargor, resinal ao final do gole. Corpo leve/médio abaixo do esperado, carbonatação leve. Aftertaste não varia muito das impressões iniciais, o amargor se faz um pouco mais presente, mas o resinal e dulçor continuam predominantes, álcool bem distribuído considerando o teor. É uma boa cerveja, relativamente fácil de beber considerando o estilo e % álcool, só não atendeu às expectativas ...

Echon (194) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2015
Tap at Fairbar. Hazy amber body. Hoppy aroma which is nowhere near what I would expect from an IIPA. Fortunately the taste is far better, being both rather sweet and bitter. Lots of malt and hops here. Medium body. Bitter finish. Dangerously close to great.

Nische (1508) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle at 2112. Hazy copper orange with white head. Fruity hop aroma - citrus, mango, pineapple. Sweet, but light malt character with lots of tropical hops. Quite easy to drink and well hidden alcohol.

Clear golden colour. Lots of tropical fruits in the aroma and also some grass. Fairly fruity and bitter. Earthy, grassy background is disappointing. Thin texture.
