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.

Bottle (12oz): Very very strong. There is a bitterness, but he alcohol masks it. Has a creaminess to it. Not an everyday beer, but is like no other I have tried.. Bottled 3/17/14, drank 4 months later.

Pours a reddish gold straw with a lazy head and lacing to match its high ABV, the nose doesn't reveal the boldness of this hop monster to the unsuspecting. That's a big pat on the back to the brewers who tried to instep dice enough malt to make this monster approachable. Make no mistake that this hophead's delight will ruin your palate with bitterness and a high alcohol burn, but what it delivers, although technically a malted liquor (I think) still comes across as a beer. Sweet alcohol and malts are a bold balance to strong hop character, although it's hard here to divine the different variety characteristics (e.g. Pine, citrus, floral, etc.). Finish is deceptively smooth with just the burn to let you know this is no session brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is definitely exotic. Wonderful sweetness but such an intense alcohol bite balanced with a really nice malt. Initial maltiness and sweetness, finished by a light fruitiness. Definitely not something I would drink often but a really good beer to try at least once.

Well it is a hard beer to get your hands, I finally got my hands on a few for $10 a piece. I have to say it is worth every cent, not only is it one of the best beers ive ever had but it is strong! I like the fact that it ages well. It is much like a cognac or brandy in my opinion with a very sweet flavor and great aftertaste

Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy light amber orange color with a thin light tan head. Aroma has a faint citrusy piney hop character, with touches of molasses, caramel malts, and a nice alcohol burn. Flavor is quite potent, with a strong alcohol burn, heavy bitterness, and caramel sweetness. Thick sticky mouthfeel with a lingering astringent character and burn. Very solid beer. More of a strong ale with intense bitterness. Huge ABV!

Havenít really cared for Dogfish Head beer. Still felt the need to try this. Hazy copper color. Very little head. Malty alcohol aroma with a mild hop smell. Tastes pretty good actually. Not really an IPA flavor though. Much more like a barley wine. Lots of alcohol burn. Feels more like drinking liquor than beer. Iím glad I have someone to share with.
