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

Tmoney99 (12408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. Poured cloudy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex earthy hop and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

FatPhil (11817) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 15, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Tap (Pudel Bar, Tallinn) (5:4:4:3:9=2.5)
Massively sticky stodgy aroma. Almondy (german bock-like) grains. Sticky and sweet. Resiny stickiness too. Dirty bitterness in the finish. Too sweet and sticky. Heady, covers the alcohol only by overpowering it. Very disappointing. I pulled a pretty ugly face with every mouthful. Yes, even worse than normal!
Rerate: Tap (Pudel Baar, Tallinn) (5:4:6:3:12=3.0)
Still cloudy, and still has a distinctively plasticky aroma that I associate with heller bocks. Smooth palate, not so sticky. Full malty body, but the hops smother that, fruity, fleshy fruits (that’s in part the malt sweetness). No ugly faces this time. Not my style, but certainly adequate. Useful rerate.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (?, Tallinn) BB201503, Drunk201312 (6:4:6:4:13=3.3)
Poured much clearer - just a haze. Orangy straw, tight off-white head. Still getting that bocky-malt almond aroma, but not as much as before. Not quite so plasticky. For it’s strength, quite light in the mouth, pleasant carbonation. Again, that heller-bock maltiness in the retronasals. Simple malty body follows, but that’s drowned in the hops. Not quite as fruity as before, but this is a month older, maybe the hops are fading? Tingly bitterness, a touch fatty too in the finish. Covers the alcohol more subtly, definitely an improvement. Worth the re-rerate.

thewolf (11644) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 30, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph. Pours hazy yellow with a large, creamy white head. Aroma has resin, grapefruit, peach, floral, light caramel. Medium carbonation, great creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts and sweet resiny notes at first. Then turns to apricot, grapefruit, peach. Lingering vinious and bitter finish.
