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.

Very nice citrus hop aroma. Flavor is the same with a ton of malt and noticeable alcohol. A bit sticky palate but not terrible. Fairly sweet finish. A bit over the top, but has a ton of great flavors. Would drink again. Actually more enjoyable than I expected. Would drink again on occasion. Way more malty than hoppy. Expected a super hop bomb, but it is a malt bomb well balanced by citrus hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Old rating. 21% ABV bottle from Old Town. Pours a hazy brownish amber color with big soapy off-white head. Raison, fig, marmalade, pine needles and resin aromas present. Taste is fairly malt forward with hops leaning more toward the piney resiny side. Hides the alcohol amazingly well until it starts to warm up. Nice warming boozy finish.

Bottle. Aroma of hoppy resin. Surprisingly no booze in the aroma. Surprisingly smooth taste. Sweet taste of raisin, resin, and pine. Very little bitterness, warm boozy finish. Nice.

Bottle from a friend, this was a 21% bottle so brewed before 2009. Boozy smell with dried fruit and raisins. Similar taste, it actually had some hops with grapefruit. Lots of flavour but a bit boozy.

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 - itís light enough to drink the whole bottle. crisp carb helps. Itís 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.

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 (4250) - Oulu/Helsinki, 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.
