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

330mkl brown bottle. The beer pours out cloudy and golden. A fine bubbled white cap on top. Attrractive lacing. Aromas are of pine and zesty orange peels, fruity notes and a bit of sweetness. Taste has a big load of hops with notes of grapefruit, heavy orange peel, pineapple, peach and mango fruit, some caramel notes. Finishes bitter, lots of hop aftertastes and perhaps a touch of alcohol late. Good brew.

McWorta (1196) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 30, 2014
Solid yellow-orange bit hazy colour with a medium-large frothy off white head very good lacings. Tropical fruit, pineapple, lime and citron peel with herbal hints and light spruce notes. Finely carbonated with a bit slick texture. Medium bodied with subtle tropical fruit up front developing a well balanced hoppiness drying out, yet all kept in check by a well kept malt structure. The finish is light biscuity, herbal-fruity and dry lasting well on the palate.

SimplySike (1285) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
33cl. Bottle. I’m guessing older bottle.
Pours hazy yellow with white head.
Aroma honey, caramel, malts, biscuit, pine, resin, little tropical fruits, some citrus fruits. It smells good but almost like the hops gone.
Taste caramel honey sweets, piney resin bitter. Taste is good bitters the hop is still here :).
Mouthfeel thick, oily, bit dry.
Great beer!

Leighton (16286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2015
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.

Great smooth IPA, Retains head and remains cloudy. Not that hoppy but the high alcohol is very well hidden. Great beer.

Good, but I expected more. Very dry, a lot of bitterness and a minimum of other shades.

AirForceHops (5272) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 3, 2015
330 cl bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Hazy gold color with lasting head. Aroma of mild citrus (peach, mango, grapefruit) Light citrus rind. Body has some sweet malt and marmalade base for the backbone. Hops are still here but a tad muted. Grapefruit peel, floral hop hints and light pine toward the finish. Extremely dry texture, like cotton place on your tongue.

Personal note: Imperial IPA rating number 200. For an undated bottle with having no idea of the age, this was really tasty!
