Too extreme to be called beer? Brewed to a colossal 45°P, 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 IBU’s, you can see why we are calling this the Holy Grail for Hopheads. Editors note: ABV reduced down to 18% in 2009.

Small head, clear orange body. Aroma is mostly sweet and alcoholic with plenty of hops and pepper tones in the background. Flavor is very sweet fruity and almost vinous at first with a nice balanced dry hoppy flavor hiding behind the sweetness. Very little alcohol present, hides the alcohol exceptional well. A very different and interesting beer. Thick, smooth and flavorfull, almost like beer concentrate. An outstanding experience!

clear amber-orange colour without foam, strong apricot hoppiness with alcohol notes, very oily, the initial sweetness is followed by an extreme bitterness, the aftertaste is very long and bitter showing more alcohol - very strong, to enjoy slowly and carefully ...

Too strong for me, way to strong, didn’t enjoy this one bit, only had a few sips. very thick, sweet, did like the hoppy aroma, but this is so not for me.

Man, is this beer strong, I had one of these and felt tipsy, but this is a very great beer, very thick, and lots of hops! Kinda expensive per bottle but worth it!

Nice IPA aroma. Hops, honey, a touch of bitterness. The flavor was not as much alcohol as I expected, but still overwhelming. Maybe if it had time to age it would improve.

Resinous green hop giants bathing in their Gargantuan honey baths...Heavy bitterness beautifully balanced with the malt cookies...Orange zest and a masterfully hidden alcohol...A very tasty but lazy mammoth...

Amber color with hardly any head. Strong malty aroma with not as much hop presence as I would have expected. Extremely sweet, malty flavor on first sip. Very full bodied with a nice hop kick at the end. Hard to believe that it has 20% alc/vol. Will probably be much better with a year or two of cellaring.

Sweet hop nose - orange, biscuity pine, slightly scorched smelling. It’s hoppy, what would you expect? but it is very well-balanced. Clear orange with white head that diminishes to ring. Alcohol is apparent as is plenty of hop flavour and bitterness. Fantastic supporting maltiness. Very well-balanced although it is perhaps overly sweet. Mouthfeel is somewhat still. Medium-full body. Bottle. Enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere.

Surprisingly very clear light amber without much head, but still a considerable sticky white ring. Deep alcohol heat hits the nose and supervises a very malty base, extremely sweet, caramelic and fruity, it made me think of pale molasses if it existed. Huge hop profile is mostly floral and grassy. Fatiguing sweet alcoholic palate, burning like a strong scotch when you keep it in mouth a minute or 2. Made me think of a sunny day, floral and skin burning. Very bold, yet pretty clean. Huge creamy body with smooth carbonation. Interesting, but ultimately not very enjoyable to me.
