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

McWorta (989) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 30, 2014
Solid yellow-orange bit hazy colour with a medium-large frothy off white head very good lacings. Tropical fruit, pineapple, lime and citron peel with herbal hints and light spruce notes. Finely carbonated with a bit slick texture. Medium bodied with subtle tropical fruit up front developing a well balanced hoppiness drying out, yet all kept in check by a well kept malt structure. The finish is light biscuity, herbal-fruity and dry lasting well on the palate.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Nadine DLG for this bottle! Murky blond with white head. Fresh and floral aroma, hoppy, creamy, bitter and fresh in the mouth. Full body, pleasing, delicate, long, bitter finish.

Martinus (3711) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2014
Slightly hazy golden colour, firm white head. Hoppy aroma, tropical fruit, pineapple, honey, pure hop pellets. Bitter hoppy flavour, green hops, resin. Hoppy bitter finish. Nice! Not very balanced, but then again that wasn’t expected either.

Punch in the face of a beer. I thought it was amazing last time. So much grapefruit, citrus, hops and caramel malts. Might one of the best looking beers I've seen. Sits very proud.

DuffMan (7996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Cloudy yellow body, whipped white head. Pungent oily citrus hop character, some gooseberry, cat pee, resin. The malts here are just sweet enough and offer just enough body to keep this balanced, although it seems absurd to use that term. Can an imperial IPA be poundable? Is it wrong that I lied to Parksy and told him that his beer spilled when he was in the bathroom, but I secretly drank it? I can live with myself.

Botella de 33 cl de el rincón de la cerveza tomada en el momento en Belmonte el 24-11-2014. Fecha de cons pref para antes de 16-09-2015. color ámbar anaranjado turbio con espuma blanca persistente. Aromas maltosos y dulces afrutados tropicales con ligero toque de resinosos. Cuerpo medio a alto con 9.3 vol que se dejan notar y buen paso por boca, algo pastoso y con espuma. Sabores intensos, maltosos y bastante dulces de frutas tropicales, piña mango, melocotón... acabando con amargo no muy intenso y algo resinoso y herbáceo que persiste durante un buen rato. Una gran cerveza sabores afrutados y cuerpo intensos, para repetir sin duda.
