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

Demens (415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 1, 2016
0,33l bottle. Very hazy orange colour with long lasting creamy white head. Aroma: Citrus, fig, honey, grass. Taste: Very sweet, very citrusy start, then a pleasent medium bitter motuhfeel. Sweet and bitter fighting in my mouth. Perfectly balanced. Very soft and smooth texture. Medium/huge body with soft carbonation. Long bitter/sweet finish. Excellent.

Aroma is honey and flowers. Taste us wonderfully balanced between the hoppy and sweet. Long taste with a warm palate.

Maybe it’s the fact that this beer’s name resembles another brew I like (Lagunitas Hop Stoopid) but I envisioned Dangerously Close to Stupid as being a hugely aggressive hop bomb. Really, it isn’t like that at all. There’s tons of hops, sure, yet the bitterness is counterbalanced by the cracker-like malt sweetness. Fruity nose with some grass, cannabis, and eucalyptus. Lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, apricot, pine, and nectar flavors. Bright palate with crisp hop resins and a vinous dry finish. This Imperial IPA is a slice of floral, tropical bliss and it’s a goddamn gift to us all.

Lilja (3133) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
En fantasktisk god Imperial IPA, avnjuten på fat. Frisk och fruktig med smak av tropisk frukt, främst passionsfrukt och mycket annanas, humle. Välbalanserad med en strävsam grape- och granskottsbeska.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 15, 2013
Cloudy gold tinged with orange, big foamy white head, nice lacing. Big nose - aroma of pine, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, toffee and resin. Mental level of bitterness in the flavour, its straight in your face. Mellows out to some of the fruit and toffee from the aroma. Thick, slick mouthfeel, big bodied. Medium fizzy carbonation sets it off well. Finish is balanced between huge, slighty astringent grapefruit hop bitterness and fruity, caramel malt. No sign of the ABV at all. Possibly the hoppiest beer Ive ever had, probably on account of it being way fresher than the US ones I can source. Which is good, because I love hops and I love sweetness in an IPA. Brilliant.
