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

Hazy gold body with a thick fluffy white head. Nose has fruity and tropical elements with bready malt. A very refreshing and drinkable DIPA. A variety of fruity hop tastes (Citra and Centennial, after all) lead off the taste profile. Sweet grapefruit, juicy tropical fruit, and a spritz of lemon create an easy drinking taste. Touches of peach and orange with very light bready malt keep this a very clean and understated double at 9.3%. It’s a lovely beer, but I can’t rate such a big beer any higher unless it delivers something more spectacular.

ajnepple (4994) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2015
11.2 oz single bottle into a pint glass, purchased at Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Murky, cloudy orange appearance with a fluffy white head and light lacing. Aroma of citrus, light tropical fruits, zesty hops, pine, spruce, light grass and hop resin. Similar flavor, juicy, fruity, alpha hops with medium bitterness and a moderate malt sweetness. Nicely balanced and easy to drink for an IIPA. Medium to full body with soft carbonation and a dry, bitter hop finish. Nicely done, To Øl is 5 out of 5 for me so far.

Bottle shared at home thanks to Sjogro. Sweet syrupy grains, marzipan, loads of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango. Light herbs, cake, some light alcohol. Basically loads of sweet cakes and biscuits with massive hops. Very sweet and over medium bitter. Full bodied. Nice one, but I’m happy we’re sharing this.

Ottima IIPA, agrumata, caramellata e dolciastra al naso, con un favoloso carico di luppoli che ti aspetta al varco! Resinosa e rotonda, corposa, favolosa.

It pours a cloudy orange. It has a full white head. It has aromas of orange, grapefruit, some pine, and a caramel malt base that blends nicely with the hops. There are flavors of orange, grapefruit and pine. The caramel malt base is prominent in the first initial flavor until the hops take over. It has a bittersweet puckery taste as the very end combined with the bitter finish. It has a moderate texture to it.
