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

Tap. Pours hazy yellow with a medium white head. The aroma is peaches, passion fruit and sweet malt. Sweet and bitter flavor with lots of fruity notes. Long bitter fruity duration. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vinx (106) - ITALY - JUL 24, 2016
Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit (ananas and mango above all), resin, then caramel hints. Golden hazy color with a frothy white foam. Surely the IBUs are a lot but they’re well balanced by its body and somehow by its oily thick texture. The alcohol content is well hidden. Average carbonation, bitter finish that becomes a bit astringent after a while. It’s not an elegant beer, it’s not the beer I’d suggest for a fancy dinner but it’s a kind of badass nordic muscular tastebuds-eraser.

Densa, turva, pouco aroma, mas bem encorpada, com otimo retrogosto e amargor equilibrado.

Maxbier (856) - Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Cloudy straw with creamy off white head. Dank sour citrus lime yeast aroma. Very dank grassy orange peak hop, plenty of ABV and a nice neutral muesli malt character. Grassy bitter linger. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (2211) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 29, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a hazy gold with two fingers of head. Tropical fruit forward nose with lots of peach, pineapple, biscuits and honey. Sweet on the palate with lots of honey, but feels lighter than most double IPAs. Lots of muscat on the palate and through the finish with some bitterness as well some booziness. Nice double IPA which drinks lighter than most.
