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

at_the_hop (87) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle. Neck smells of cut flowers and sherbert. Poured out there is loads of honey on the nose and sweet tangerine. Taste is big orange, boozy but fresh too. Floral at the back of the mouth. Rich and slightly sweet with restraint marmalade bitterness. Clean finish. Really nice but not unforgettable.

KW92 (858) - ❤ WARSZAWA ❤, POLAND - JAN 27, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemnozłota, zamglone. Piana drobna, wysoka, trwała. Nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Dosyć intensywny, słodki cukierkowy. Naprzemiennie wyczuwalne karmel i owoce tropikalne (ananas, papaja) W tle akcenty ziołowe, ale również nieznaczne oznaki utlenienia (miód).
SMAK: Cytrusowo-ziołowe. Posmak ziołowy. Goryczka średnia w kierunku wysokiej, nieco zalegająca. Zaskakująco dobrze pijalne jak na 9.3%
OGÓLNIE: Bardzo przyjemne piwo w odbiorze, nawet pomimo wysokiej zawartości alkoholu.

ElDesmadre (2756) - Mikołów, POLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle. Mango, honey melon, orange, pomelo - the hopping is intense, citrusy and tropical, with the malt base shining through here and there. Soft though not oily, juicy-hoppy flavour. Bitter-sweet, balanced taste. Its ABV is a bit too noticeable, while the beer is absolutely not boozy. Very good.

coachd (434) - Missouri, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Very clean hoppy aroma with a touch of sweetness. Beautiful dark orange color with sediment and an ivory tuft of foam. Tastes hoppy and fresh with a bit of an earthy/grassy quality. Many DIPAs go overboard on the malt, this one lets the hops be the star but without being bitter. The palate is a bit thin but overall this was very good. Extremely drinkable for such a big beer.

Finn (5563) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2016
Flaske 330ml delt med Torgeir på Cafe Sånn. Aprikosfarget. Uklar. Veldig høyt tett skum som daler veldig sakte. Tynn lacing. God aprikosaroma. Smaken veldig balansert. Forbausende "lett" fruktsmak med alkoholen godt kamuflert. Tørr avslutning.

_angst_ (4125) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2016
Draught @ Dansken. Pours hazy burnt orange with a creamy offwhite head that leaves lots of thick sticky lacing and trace in the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and fruity with dark bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, pineapple, papaya, moist grass, pine needles, resin, lemon zest and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and fruity. Mouthfeel is round, astringent, slightly boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with bread, caramel, toffee, grapefruit juice, papaya, moist grass, pine needles, resin, cardboard, alcohol and lemon zest. Very tired and heavy on the caramel, bread, toffee and cardboard.

Fin (8853) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Cotteridge, Birmingham, consumed at home Thursday 7th December 2015 Pours orangey gold with a thick white creamy textured head atop. Soft in the mouth, feels thick, sweet, bitterness doesn’t present itself immediately. This is a big IPA but the maltiness is very much in the US style. Sweet citrus, dry at the finish, it’s a grower though Loz has left hers to me and cracked open an Axe Edge.After a while there is slight hoppy burn, warmth from alcohol also. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Bottle. lasting white frothy head atop a cloudy orange peach body. Nose of pine sol and soap. Very deep in citrus flavours: Seville Orange, Mandarin and passion fruit tossed in.

Hazy orange, white froth. Pine and grapefruit aroma. Flavour has juicy, fruity hops, pine and citrus. Refreshing bitterness. Caramely malt and alcohol appear in the finish. Elegant with high drinkability.

Gluepot (289) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2015
Hazy gold body with a thick fluffy white head. Nose has fruity and tropical elements with bready malt. A very refreshing and drinkable DIPA. A variety of fruity hop tastes (Citra and Centennial, after all) lead off the taste profile. Sweet grapefruit, juicy tropical fruit, and a spritz of lemon create an easy drinking taste. Touches of peach and orange with very light bready malt keep this a very clean and understated double at 9.3%. It’s a lovely beer, but I can’t rate such a big beer any higher unless it delivers something more spectacular.
