COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Too extreme to be called beer? Brewed to a colossal 45įP, boiled for a full 2 hours while being continually hopped with high alpha American hops, dry-hopped every day in the fermenter for a month, and aged for a month on whole leaf hops, 120 Minute IPA is by far the strongest IPA ever brewed. And at 21% ABV and 120 IBUís, you can see why we are calling this the Holy Grail for Hopheads. Editors note: ABV reduced down to 18% in 2009.

A very pleasent citrus aroma with a creamy ivroy head. While having 120 IBUs the huge amount of sugar in it result in a far lower practical IBU. A very nice beer that can be enjoyed with or without food.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 On tap through double Randalls at Capital Ale House - Downtown on 06/04/2009. Cloudy orange body with a medium frothy white head. Huge citrus aroma dominating everything. Chewy hop flavor with lots of citrus and resin. Full body with low carbonation. 8/3/8/3/16 - 3.8 On tap at Capital Ale House - Downtown on 08/28/2008. Poured through a randal filled with simcoe, cascade and summit. Very cloudy orange body with a medium creamy off-white head. Big caramel and molassas aroma with a bit of alcohol and a hop kick. Huge hop flavor, lots of caramel, molassas, and alcohol. Full mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a chewy hop finish. 8/4/8/3/15 - 3.8 (Not included in overall rating) 11/15/2005: a light brown ale, with a thick white head. A very hoppy aroma with this beer. The sweetness of the high alcohol content overwhelms the hoppiness of this beer. Overall this beer is not anywhere near as bitter as you’d expect, but holds its place in Dogfish’s lineup 9/4/7/4/14 - 3.8

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Iím a big fan of all the DFH beers Iíve tried, including the 90-minute IPA and the WW stout, so I was very excited to give this one a try. The aroma coming from the glass was wonderful, with strong hop and fruity smells. Once I got it in my mouth, though, I was disappointed. The feeling on the mouth is syrupy, and the taste is overpoweringly sweet and alcoholic. To me, anyway, the taste of this one is very similar to the WW stout, but without a lot of the complexities. What works in a stout doesnít, for me at least, in an IPA.

ragesaq (71) - Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 Got this one courtesy of the best liquor store in Tucson, nay, the world, Plaza Liquors. Appearance: Slightly reddish hazy yellow, almost copper in color. Aroma: Super nearly sicky sweet hops. Flavor profile: Thick, rich, hoppy, intense, not for the weak of heart. Almost Brandy-like characters. Palate: Thick and rich, hot, aggressive, definitely a sipping beer, very nice! Overall: If IPA were distilled into a spirit, this is pretty much what youíd get. Its a big intense awesome beer that becomes amazing as you age it.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - NOV 13, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 Clear amber, small head which is more than I expected. Aroma is strong citrus with pine and lesser grapefruit. Huge malt backbone present as well. The alcohol is there, but youíd never come close to guessing 21%. Very sugary malts overpower the hops, but everything is so big. This beer bludgeons the palate, and I like it! Very balanced for its size.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 13, 2005
Brewed 03 04 05. Light aroma of warm alcohol and hops. Sweet liquer of alcohol, malt, hop oil and hops. Orange with thin foam. Hops are more noticeable in the hop oil and body than in flavour. Alcohol comes across more extreme than the hops. Alcohol comes across too much to qualify as a top beer for me.

2005 bottle. No head to speak of, a dark copper. Starts with a bit of hop flavor, then gets really sweet. Real thick, elixir like. Pretty good overall, not worth the price tag.

Quickly dissipating head and burnt orange color. Smells like orange rind and damp earth. The palate is so disappointing. Tastes like orange concentrate/limoncello, both of which I canít stand. The beer is way too hot with alcohol and tastes like an orange Crush after two bags of Halloween candy.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Similar to the DFH 90 Minute in both appearance and taste. A ruby to amber color with a quickly dissipated head. Plenty of grapefruit and sweet as could be expected. Hoppy? Duh. Donít let those similarties fool you, though - this packs a wallop. The alcohol is disguised all too well and begins to hit you slowly as it warms you up from the core. I managed to drink a whole bottle but donít remember much after that (or during the quaffing process come to think of it). Fortunately, I had my wife along to drive my passed-out ass home, and since I can only tolerate her driving when Iím drunk, I like to think that this really worked out well for me.
