COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Drinking a 2011 bottle, aged four years: Pours hazy copper with powerful aromas of apricot and raisin. The palate is very substantial having loads of malt spiciness present; lots of alcohol warmth without tasting boozy. The taste is sweet like candied orange rind with pleasant spice finish, slightly medicinal, with hints of celery.

Orange brown amber pour some tan head. Aroma pine orange hops, grainy caramel malt. Tastes buttery bready malts, big booze, tangerine hops. mouthfeel is the biggest suprise - it’s light enough to drink the whole bottle. crisp carb helps. It’s like a hoppy pilsner cross with a barleywine. Not as complex as a barleywine though.

Bottled. Darker shade of amber. Smell of.....hops, but not so juicy. Bit more of a caramel malt core to this than to others but really quite good. 11 bucks a bottle good? Nope.

Criz (176) - - FEB 27, 2015
12 oz bottle poured into ipa glass. Coppery orange in color, murky hue with a thick off white head that sticks to the sides of the glass. Aromas of booze, almost a moonshine similarity, pine, finished sweet with a floral aroma and oranges and grapefruits. Flavors of bitter hops, clear liquor, sap, lemon and finished by a balanced caramel sweetness. Very thick on the palate, with an intense bitter bite at the end finished by a warning booziness. Keeping one on deck to age.

VastActiv (3494) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Tap at Beer Mongers, Seattle. Kegged Aug 2014. Colour is very cloudy light orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, tropical fruits, peach, hops, alcohol and malts. Not so glueish I would have expected. Drinkability bad but much better than expected. Probably after 1-2 years in bottle this will be horrible.

jflopsu (743) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Aged 2013 (drank in 2015). Pours a light gold. Has one of the strongest aromas I’ve smelled in a beer with a strong floral. A powerful taste with grapefruit and some floral hops. A lingering but not overpowering hop aftertaste.

Concealer (892) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle, 2015 vintage. Hazy amber orange with a small beige head. Aromas of candied orange, caramel, toasted malt, pine and earthy notes. Flavor is caramel, maple syrup, candied citrus, earthy notes, toasted malt, and light wood. Full bodied, syrupy with a hot finish.

På fat Pickle bar Brooklyn. Klassiskt rostfärgad Dipa. Fiin Dipa doft , lite vanilj?. Mycket fyllig smak rätt igenom från början till slut. Aprikos tydligt inslag åh jävligt balanserad. Lagom kolsyrad. Varm känsla i munnen å fin eftersmak. Tappar lite när den blivit lite varmare i glaset. Sjukt kunna göra en DIPA på 18% åh den smakar Dipa inte vin. Ja när man läser om ölen är den ju sjukt fylld av humle. Liksom tryckt i åh lagrat å tryckt i än mer mm mm. Häftigt

Lothore (582) - California, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Pours a clear golden hue with an small, off white head which floats around for a while. Caramel and pine dominate the nose. Huge caramel up front leading into pine sap, bready wheat and a wave of bitterness with an alcohol undertone. Full bodied with ample carbonation. It’s crazy how drinkable this beer is. A really awesome beer.
