To Øl Dangerously Close To Stupid IPA

To Øl Dangerously Close To Stupid...$5.49 / 11.2oz
Rated 99/100 RateBeerThe 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.
Cheers, enjoy and be aware!
Words from our label designer Kasper Ledet:
The idea is to do a design that is as close to stupid graphically. A picture of roses (What? There is a lot of hops in the beer..) half-destroyed by data faults and yet the picture refers to previous beers that are more beautiful in a classic way. It is almost an undermining of these previous labels! Around the neck is the same picture as on the front, but stretched abnormally much in the height (a classic death sin in graphical design) and in a bad quality black and white version. The back label is of course in comic sans – no explanation needed here.

Ingredients: Water, Malts, Hops (Centennial, Citra) and Yeast.
9.3% ABV / Net Content 330 ml (11.2 FL OZ)
