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.

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 (1301) - 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 (1164) - 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 (6216) - 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).

3.8
Maarten1993 (1223) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2017
Drank 06-05-17 while writing. Quite bitter IPA. A little sweetness near the end. Body is good. Not too hoppy.

MadRobin (2987) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - APR 14, 2017
On tap at Frisco Taphouse and Brewery in Columbia, MD. Hazy, light amber-gold with a fine off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, lemon, butterscotch, biscuit and tangerine. Taste of tropical fruit, toffee, lemon, tangerine, biscuits and light fruit. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanCrusher (1066) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - APR 6, 2017
Bottle 0,33L. Murky orange color with large, frothy, white head and a lot of floating particles, although I left some sediment in bottle. Aroma of caramel malt with some spicy and herbal touch, also some fruits and note of alcohol. Medium to heavy bitter taste, heavy on malts with heavy bitterness at the end. Kinda heavy beer, not for every occasion and not for everyday drinking.

3.8
Foerdifuxx (353) - Franconia, GERMANY - APR 3, 2017
Almost clear yellow golden beer with a huge white, good lasting head. Aroma of grains, tropical fruits, strong peach, orange zest, whiff of piss, caramel. Taste of caramel and hops, medium sweet fruity and bitter, strong grainy in the middle part, longlasting bitter finish. Bit soapy with temperature. Oily texture, flat carbonation, full body.

3.5
nearbeer (5362) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2017
33 cl. bottled 11/10/15. Light fog on the honey colored brew and a spongy disc of foam above. Nose is rising bread, caramel and light citrus zest. Flavors of toffee, mild citrus mix and light peppery, sodden wood indicating old hops. Medium-plus body has a pleasant medium carbonation and a decent balance. Will try to sample a fresh bottle in the future for a fairer rating. Thanks again to McScrooges for peddling outdated European brews at the same price as fresh like no one else!
