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.

Is over thte top to strong to discribe this? NO, this brew is way over the top. As a non hop head I tried this just to say I had and guess what? It is what it advertises. I really did think I would taste the alcohol more.

Amber/orange. Poured with thousands of tiny bubbles working their way in slow motion to form a quick settling head. What can I say.. Itís all about the hops. Smells like a hop frappe which is nice if youíre a hop addict like myself. A really green, earthy hop aroma blends with fruity citrusy notes of peaches in heavy syrup. I can actually smell the leaves and stems of the hops in here. Amazing. Mouthfeel is slick and chewy sticking to every tastebud in my mouth. Incredibley smooth and dangerously drinkable. Flavor is much like aroma. Peachy sweet and a hop lovers dream beer. The finish is candy apple sweet. The alcohol is really hidden well but warms you up gradually. If youíre a hophead you must try this one.

12 bottle - 2004 release. Pours a bright, clear gold to copper with a medium light tan head. Sweet, sweet malt aroma with an underlying spicyness. Big sweet candy-like flavor, giving way to some slightly toasty malt with barely enough hops to keep it in check as alcohol notes begin to show. Finishes nicely balanced between malt and hops with a firey alcohol undertone that warms on the way down. Lingering sweetness battles lingering bitterness and alcohol. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel with light carbonation. Hop aromas and flavors are suprisingly lacking, mostly due to purely overwhelming malt sweetness.

Darkover (1534) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2004 Bottled 2003: Light amber/orange color with a small head. Aroma of alcohol, sweet candy malts and hops. Flavor is really sweet, and a little syrupy. Not much alcohol taste and the hops don?t seem that strong to me either. Pretty good but its hard to drink the whole bottle.

Lots and lots of hops. But too sweet by far. This beer just doesnít work as a whole. The hops come across harsh, and the malt cloying. The balance is not met. Still, I will have to say that it works better than I anticipated a beer at the abv would.

Pailhead (6278) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2009 Bottle: Extremely sweet aroma with hops. Kind of citrusy. Pours an amber with a small white head. Flavor is extremely sweet. So sweet that hops struggle to come through. Needs to be hoppier to combat the sweetness. Very smooth for the high alcohol content. The alcohol is noticeable in the finish. No burn because thatís probably covered up by the sweetness too. Itís ok and something worth trying once and maybe revisiting every few years...more of a novelty beer in my opinion.

Great Brew, and a killer buzz. I was really impressed and even more shocked when I learned the alc. content. Shame its $8 a bottle
