COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle 330 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Muddy orangy beer with a nice and tenacious head, laces on the glass. Immediatly assailed by citrusy and floral aromas, caramelized hints and jam of tropical fruits. The taste is very hopped but with tenderness, quite smoothly and freshness. the nuances are perfumed in the same way with resin and jam of apricot, pineapple and other tropical fruits.

Raviq (82) - POLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Orange colour with really big head, that leaves nice lacing. Strong hoppiness in the aroma, rather sweet fruit, like mango, pineapple, peach and grapes, some petrolenium maybe. Really intensive aroma overall. There is some sweetness in the taste, beer is semi-dry. Bitterness is high but short. Alcohol is well hidden. Very easy drinking, really good beer.

drsordr (2336) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle pour hazy dark gold with lots of sediment and moderate white head. Nose dank hop, earthy, lightly vegetal. Taste moderate bitter bite up front, then slightly spicy hop, followed by dank hop and brief alcohol. Some balancing sweetness late palate. Lingering bitter finish. Thick mouth feel.

djoeye (3640) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2016
Look; flathead layer, apricot golden hazy body. Aroma; pine forest, caramel notes, forest apricot, squirrelmalts. Taste; hops, pine, roasted light malts - varming caramel n hops in a nice balanced finish. A solid one on palate. Overall tasty strong IPA, but not stupid. [33cl br btl, 9.3%abv, BB28.10.17, 7, Vinmonopolet, squirrelmalt = malt that suddenly appears from a pine tree and then goes nuts]

at_the_hop (109) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle. Neck smells of cut flowers and sherbert. Poured out there is loads of honey on the nose and sweet tangerine. Taste is big orange, boozy but fresh too. Floral at the back of the mouth. Rich and slightly sweet with restraint marmalade bitterness. Clean finish. Really nice but not unforgettable.

KW92 (1228) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 27, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemnozłota, zamglone. Piana drobna, wysoka, trwała. Nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Dosyć intensywny, słodki cukierkowy. Naprzemiennie wyczuwalne karmel i owoce tropikalne (ananas, papaja) W tle akcenty ziołowe, ale rwnież nieznaczne oznaki utlenienia (mid).
SMAK: Cytrusowo-ziołowe. Posmak ziołowy. Goryczka średnia w kierunku wysokiej, nieco zalegająca. Zaskakująco dobrze pijalne jak na 9.3%
OGLNIE: Bardzo przyjemne piwo w odbiorze, nawet pomimo wysokiej zawartości alkoholu.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołw, POLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle. Mango, honey melon, orange, pomelo - the hopping is intense, citrusy and tropical, with the malt base shining through here and there. Soft though not oily, juicy-hoppy flavour. Bitter-sweet, balanced taste. Its ABV is a bit too noticeable, while the beer is absolutely not boozy. Very good.

coachd (585) - Missouri, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Very clean hoppy aroma with a touch of sweetness. Beautiful dark orange color with sediment and an ivory tuft of foam. Tastes hoppy and fresh with a bit of an earthy/grassy quality. Many DIPAs go overboard on the malt, this one lets the hops be the star but without being bitter. The palate is a bit thin but overall this was very good. Extremely drinkable for such a big beer.
