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

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.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Seriously excellent beer. Sweet, but not caramelly like US DIPAs. Big and hoppy, but not overblown. Composed, balanced. Syrupy mouthfeel, with excellent fizz. Loved.

veceo (1362) - Pula, CROATIA, - AUG 28, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2016 Cloudy orange color, average sized tan head. Lots of lacing. Very fruity aroma: mango, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, oranges. Full body, lively carbonation. Medium sweet, medium bitter taste. Nice hoppy character. Long bitter finish. Taste remains on the lips one hour after. Texture is kinda sticky. Alcohol is not noticeable. Insanely good.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique August 2013. You would have to be stupid not to like this beer. Hops dominate and leave a film in the mouth. A beer to be treated with respect.

I actually dreamed about this beer. It is simply superb and should be bought whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Beautifuul hazy orange colour. Terific smell- citrous, tropical fruit, some floral notes. Crisp, juicy taste. Long aftertaste. Exelent!
