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

Excelente cerveza aroma y sabor mezclan en boca agradablemente. Amargo chocante al principio y después se transforma en una cerveza de alta graduación alcohólica en una fresca y refrescante IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska på Umami, Örebro. Klarguldig. Doft och smak av fläder och citrus med blommiga och gräsiga inslag. En del alkoholsötma, zest, apelsinsylt. Gissar på lite trött humle, kan nog ha stått ett tag.

Shag (3000) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Bright orange color with a white head. The aroma contains a heavy dose of alcohol along with some oranges and grapefruit but man the booze overwhelms the nose. The flavor is only slightly bitter with a citrus presence but also some vanilla and biscuit notes. The flavor also super boozy. Overall not bad but this is more like a citrusy barleywine with all the booze but it would work on a cold night.

I’ve had this beer many times, it’s one mof my favourite IPAs this side of the pond. Somehow I forgot to rate it here.
Hazy golden pour with a tall off-white head. Notes of overripea peaches, apricots, pears, citrus, light grapefurit, caramelized malts, tons of pineapple, mango, a bit of papaya. Superb beer, medium body, medium carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Juicy and dangerously drinkable. Something about Centennial and Citra hops that takes me back to my younger days of exploring craft beers.

oobawa (1394) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2017
Weird to read in the description that To Øl removed all the caramel malts from the recipe, since that’s the primary flavor here: big, rich, heavy caramel. Thinking this bottle’s well past its prime; hops are still lingering around, but any bright, citric character is long gone, replaced by hints of orange and pine and a lengthy bitter finish. Mostly caramel with toasted biscuit underneath, finished by a IBU-packed fade accented with modest mango-citrus notes. Probably killer fresh. Not bad as-is, but not great either.

TrefwoordPunk (1195) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy orange with a medium but lasting white head and an aroma of pine, floral hops, ripe tropical fruits, brown sugar, caramel, biscuits, cookies, bread, alcohol and figs. The taste is a really nice mixture of malty sweetness, alcohol and exotic fruity, hoppy bitterness. Very nice

3.1
JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 11, 2017
azy amber liquid, with a stable, off-white head. Heavy aromas with licorice, resin, yogurt, gooseberries, floor malt; an old ale type scent. After the first sip, believe this might be a bottle that was on the boat/shelf too long. Sweet, wood malt. All the qualities of an aged IIPA (not necessarily a good thing for me – unfortunately).
