COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The next beer in the To l 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

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

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl. Cloudy golden with a small white head. Lovely, massive and intensely herbal, fruity hop aroma of peach, lemon, orange, spring flowers. Sweet malty, very fruity, super fresh and highly concentrated. Alcohol is very well hidden. Sticky texture, soft carbonation. Bittersweet finish.. I am not a big fan of DIPAs, but this is jolly fine.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 Pours cloudy orange with white head. Head clings to glass with white rings. Floral aroma with citrus hues, the hops are fantastic. Full bodied, medium carbonation. Aroma follows through on taste with dry bitter aftertaste. Great beer.

maneliquor (3463) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours hazy orange with a big, fluffy white head leaving great lacing and some serious head retention. Nose shows heavy citric based fruits, big on tangy orange and blood orange, grapefruit, pine needles. Taste is hugely fruit based hoppage. Heavy tangy orange, a shit load of grapefruit, tangerine, passion fruit, lemon. Quite grassy too. Mouth feel is superb. Perfect carbonation to help it flow without being too sptrizy. A gradual warming at the back of the throat once its downed. I enjoy that too. Damn good shit!

jonnyguns (1102) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a light hazy orange with a lovely off white head that hold well. Holy crap this smells amazing! Nose is full of citrus fruit, freshly juiced oranges, grapefruit and some pine. Smells delicious. Taste is in your face fruity hops. Orange, lemon and mango up front with a light pine note backed up by the slight bitterness. Goes down incredibly easy for 9.3%. Sensational beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bobroman (631) - Torun, POLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Beautiful hoppy aroma mainly of peaches. Small but durable head with good lacing. Hazy red orange body. Intensive hoppy bitterness in taste, long bitter aftertaste. Good malty backbone.

Lore (1431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 29, 2013
hazy orange colour, not too much off white head; aroma of pine resin, some honey, hints of grapefruit and berries; taste of intensive bitterness (caused by piney hoppyness), however malty sweetness is also present; cool double IPA

draught at Csakajsrk, Budapest, Hungary // fell in love with this hazy, not disturbingly sweet double IPA; just what I needed after a killer week! the bitterness in the end doesnt let you go easily, but you dont want to be let gone anyway...
