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

jesperhammer (3368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2013
27-APR-2013, bottle @home, from Ølbutikken. Hazy orange with huge lasting, creamy, and also a little rough, white head. Very hoppy, grassy and piney aroma. Extremely bitter taste with grape fruit, pine and kerosen. Fruity with orangew and dried fruit. Very fresh with a ton of different hop notes - clearly dry hopped. Sweet malts - actually quite sweet. Full body, soft carbonation. Fantastic drink.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
330ml bottle from Bradley’s. Pours a cloudy golden with a lovely lingering pillowy white head. It looks incredible. Aroma is one of the nicest I have ever smelled - lots of floral and fruity citrus, pine, strawberry, caramel, and a light touch of vanilla. Very finely balanced taste between the powerful and interesting dry hoppy bitterness and a lovely delicate caramel sweetness. Lively, dry and bittersweet finish. This beer is incredible. I would drink this again and again if I could get my hands on it. Comfortably the best IPA I’ve ever had.

On tap. Pours a cloudy almost dark orange with a good white head. Smells of mango and a bit if pineapple. Tastes fantastic nicely balanced. As the name suggests it's a big hoppy thick DIPA. Deffo have it again.

Dobre tresciwe piwo. mocno metne ze spora piana i trwala. Piekny zapach kwiatowy, melonowy i cytrusowy. Slodowosc dosc spora nawet slodkawe piwo w posmaku. po przelknieciu goryczkowe ale cukier takze sie zaznacza ktory pochodzi od slodu.

Fashawn (369) - Montesarchio, ITALY - JAN 20, 2015
Grande birra, buonissima. Aroma bellissimo dove sento aghi di pino, resina, melone, pompelmi, fiori. Bionda opale sente, schiuma bianca fine è compatta. Dolcezza da malti, biscottini al burro e vaniglia, poi macedonia di frutta fresca ed un finale secco, dolcemente amaro. Buono il corpo e la tessitura, birra ben pensata e che si fa bere. Amo davvero una Ipa così, ne vorrei altre.

Great tasting beer...very smooth for its ABV. Easy drinking and great for the sun. Nice hoppy aroma and has quite a sweet taste, again especially for a berr of its strength
