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

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle at The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Hazy gold lasting white head. Lovely big grapefruit hop aroma. A touch of puke somewhere in the mouth. Aroma is great but the rest is less than good

yngwie (15762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2013
On tap at Kick. A small, white to off-white head sits on top of a hazy orange-golden body. The aroma is mostly fruity, tropical fruits, peaches and pineapples, pine cones and grass. Malty sweetness too. Quite bitter flavor with enough sweetness to bring some balance. Full body, soft carbonation. Mostly bitter finish, with lots of fruityness. Pleasant indeed, but not fantastic. 130620

Draft at LCBF 2013 - London. Pours cloudy yellow with a light, white foam head. Moderate dried citrus, some bready pale malts, orange, tangerine, some hay. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish, pretty sweet. Lingering ripe tangerine. Full on but pretty well balanced.

TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottled 330ml from Kihoskh. Hazy orange color, decent steady off-white head. Lots of gooseberry and some pine in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish fruity maltyness, sticky "gooseberry bushes" hoppyness and lingering resiny bitterness. Some alcohol in the finish. Lots of hops but drinkability is still quite good. Same time quite typical To Ol/Mikkeller De Proef-DIPA.
