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

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, thanks to yespr on 30 April 2013. Golden amber colour. Intense floral and grassy hop aroma. Lasting off-white head. Good firm bitterness on the palate to go with the aromatic elements. Not too boozy or sticky but does have a little more residual sweetness than I like.

ABT_S54 (265) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
33cl bottle served in a Struise glass. Cloudy amber colour with a massive white head. Powerful aroma of abundant resinous hops. Taste is exactly as promised by the aroma - grassy, resinous hops dominate. Little malt presence which is how I like my IIPAs. Quite a severe bitterness which considering I had just finished a Hardcore IPA is a testament to its strength (I would be interested to know the IBU rating of this one).

On tap at Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen. Hazy light golden with white head. Hoppy fruit, grapefruit, zest mango and pine. Dry with high bitterness and medium carbonation.

Draft pour. The beer is a hazy gold with a white head of foam. The aroma has big floral and citrus hops. Some caramel sweetness. Lemon zest. Tastes mildly bitter. Pretty refreshing.

dfearnley (1179) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle to IPA glass Bread, grapefruit, overripe apple, tropical fruit, and light spruce. Pours a hazy amber with a 5 cm and growing off white head due to boisterous effervescence. The cashier in the store I bought it from knocked it over, but that was 6 hours ago. Taste is fruity and sweet with a strong bitterness that lasts.

AirForceHops (4345) - 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!
