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

RasmusOtt (1489) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2013
Pours unclear golden with a white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, very bitter and crispy smelling. A lot of pine, a bit straw and rough bread notes. Taste of bitter citrus, crisp hops, weak sweeter malts and slight alcohol. Very dry and extreme Yo yo yo!

Yorker (1475) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy golden with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is peach, grapefruit, and caramel. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a slightly bitter finish.

Muggus69 (1409) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2014
330mL Pours a hazy, slightly murky orange gold body. Big creamy white head hangs around. Big aroma; lots of hoppy grass, passionfruit, grapefruit, pine, resiny, with underlying toasty malt. Body is quite oily, resiny, lively carbonation, medium body - deceptively lean for its strength! Lots of sweet pale malty goodness on the body. Hops deliver a touch less than promised on the nose - resiny leaf, grass, citrus & unripe tropical fruits. Plenty of drying bitterness & a touch of warmth on finish. Reasonably good IPA, balance is a bit off.

Japalo (1390) - DENMARK - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle@home. Copper haze. Small head. Red grapefruit. Intense bitter hopping masking the alcohol very well. A brew that evolves in the glas. Super.

Lore (1389) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 29, 2013
hazy orange colour, not too much off white head; aroma of pine resin, some honey, hints of grapefruit and berries; taste of intensive bitterness (caused by piney hoppyness), however malty sweetness is also present; cool double IPA

thirstyrabbit (1361) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 31, 2013
Small bottle. Cool label with a digital photo of roses that fails to load in the middle. Cloudy orange body with a tall rocky head. Rich aroma of crisp hops. Slick body with lots of hops. Tastes a bit anonymous. Decent enough but no surprises - just another Danish hop bomb brewed at the De Proefbrouwerij. Decent enough but in terms of excitement it kind of does "fail to load in the middle".

0,33L bottle, BB 11.03.16. Pours hazy golden with huge white head. The head stays. Aroma is intense tropical fruits, mango, grapefruit, and malt. Taste is sweet and bitter, tropical fruits, grapefruit, mango, peach, and malt. Finish is fruity bitter. Alcohol is well covered. Overall: very easy to drink, nice fruity brew.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAY 31, 2013
Hoppy aroma, with some citrus bark and maybe a bit of herbs. Cloudy yellow, long bitter slightly fruity finish. Very good!
