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

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.

Nische (1225) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle at 2112. Hazy copper orange with white head. Fruity hop aroma - citrus, mango, pineapple. Sweet, but light malt character with lots of tropical hops. Quite easy to drink and well hidden alcohol.

Clear golden colour. Lots of tropical fruits in the aroma and also some grass. Fairly fruity and bitter. Earthy, grassy background is disappointing. Thin texture.

Bottle. Sensoric. Pale golden, little hazy with medium, white, semi-densed head. Medium tropical fruits and resinous aroma, nice caramel and biscuity aroma. Taste is medium to high bitter with strong malty caramel-like sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is semi-sweet with some bitter notes.

danlo (1683) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2015
330ml bottle from Mikkeller webshop. Orangey golden colour with a foamy white head leaving some lacing and aroma of mango, passionfruit, citrus, hoppy. Taste is malt caramel nicely balanced with juicy tropical fruits, citrus & spicey hop resin bitterness. Smooth slightly oily palate, medium bodied, soft carbonation, very dry tangy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

hrabren (248) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 15, 2015
0.33 bottle from Beer Geek shop in Prague. Shared with lovely Anja and Janek. Hazy to opaque orange to golden with strong white to off white head. Hoppy as expected, but not heavily in aroma. Herbs, fish, fruit. Now the hops came out, nice kick, somewhat acidic. Then it settles, sweet, floral hops, dry background. Hidden alcohol. Nice.
