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

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of JanLaursen. Pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Massive and rather sophisticated hop aroma. Medium body, some sweet malts and fruit with a shitload of peachy and herbal hops. Quite minerally - almost salty. Ends sweet, thick and syrupy - yet with a ton of great hops. 220413

330 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of floral hops, pine and caramel. Flavour is rather sweet with floral hops, caramel, hay and some alcohol. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a warming, floral, sweet finish. A DIPA on the sweet side, but no too much.

Vignale (3051) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2013
Flaska från Mikkeller & Friends. Grumlig, orange, högt kompakt orangevitt skum. Stor humledoft med mycket citron, granskott och beska. Väldigt humlebetonad IIPA, kropp och sötma störst ut av en sträv, torr, citrusfruktig humle. Ändå ganska beskedlig beska. Känns De Proef-typisk och kanske lite endimensionell. Häftig.

Appearance: A foggy amber colored beer. An off-white head with good lacing and good curtains.

Note: On-tap at De Klomp. Reviewed 2013-05-25.

On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity hops, mango, peach and tangerine. Taste is fresh, crisp fruity hops, very well balanced, tasty and with that moreish taste, a winner, did i say well hidden alcohol?

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Light honey pour with a solid eggshell head. Grapefruit, evergreen, orange peel, and lemon zest. A bit of peppery spice as well. Alcohol was invisible. Not a bad IPA!
