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

FatPhil (10343) - 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.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 17, 2013
Botella. Hazy like golden orange colour, nice medium sized white ehad, creamish, leaving a good lacing. Aroma is dominated by fruity tropical hoppiness, sweet, citrus, very pleasant. Good filling mouthfeel. Pleasant flavour indeed of fruity tropical hops, pine and citrus, quite bitter and indeed dry too. Lovely!

Sammy (9350) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
With a year and a half to go on good till, it is a decent tasting strong ale. Not a great DIPA by North American standards.

mcberko (8738) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, pours a cloudy orange with a small beige head. Aroma of resinous hops, dry caramel malts, and tropical fruits. Flavour of dry resinous hops, dry caramel malts, and some dry tropical fruity notes. Very rich and full-bodied, with dry fruity and resinous hop notes dominating. Excellent stuff.

Bottle from Thistle News, Aberdeen. It pours hazy golden with a thick white head. The nose is tangerine, orange, tinned fruit, straw, mild sulphur, farmyard and marmalade. The taste is pine, resin, orange, tangerine, sherbet, assertive bitterness, warming alcohol and marmalade with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff!
