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.

Aroma of alcohol, figs, dark fruits. Taste is similar; Mega hoppyness and booze at the start, figgy and boozy aftertaste. Pretty complex beer, for 18% the alcohol is not too over powering but seems to mask the taste of the hops and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

klaing (116) - Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Cloudy brown with little lacing. Sweet toffee and pine aroma. Intense syrupy piney beer, but really more like drinking a sherry with hops. I matured it for two years. Two years with an unopened beer. Life has changed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WhatAlesYa13 (5) - Alabama, USA - JAN 11, 2014 does not count
Bottle purchased a few years ago and kept refridgerated. Aged well. Amber color with a white bubbly thin head. Sweet whiskey malty flavor. A more syrupy pallet than the shorter boil Df varieties. Mellows out the hop profile. Very good beer.

tmoreau (2280) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2014
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a mini FW snifter looking viscous & syrupy, with a clear, amber hue, light, bubbly head foam, and light spots of legs & lacing. Both aroma and taste were resinous notes, fruit & citrus, assertive hop bitterness, tempered by malt sweetness throughout, and thoroughly warming, alcohol intensity. Big, bold, and dangerously barleywine-like. Excellent timing to combat the current sub zero temperature barrage.

JefVerstraete (1141) - BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2014
Hazy golden colour, some white foam. Complex aroma of ripe fruit, whisky and warming alcohol. Sweet and bitter taste. Good beer!

Dragonfly1 (482) - Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. Shared with Will. Orange yellow pour. Huge aroma of sweet peach, honey, piney hops. Flavor is intensely sweet, awash with pine cones, then finishes with lemon and more honey. A lot going on here. Thick. For the ABV and amount of hops, it’s surprisingly balanced to the extent it can be.

paintedmaple (365) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2013
On tap at the Fenton Fire Hall... "wow" immediately comes to mind upon the 1st sip. A beautiful balance of candied malt/hop flavors and a warming alcohol feel; this is in a class by itself.

12oz bottle pours a light amber color with an off white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, resin,lots d hops. Full bodied, sweet and sticky, must share. Glad I finally got to try this.

gyllenbock (4385) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle at Akkurat, vintage 2008. Clear light amber with a minimal head. Aroma of fruit, orange, alcohol, toffee, syrup and some whisky. The taste was similar. The body was thick and the arftertaste long. A nice beer to sip but way too expensive. (595 SEK=90USD)

KornDogg (521) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle. Candied hop, pine and fruit aroma. Amber body with very thin lasting head. Flavor begins with very sweet alcohol flavor, quickly balanced by notes of hops, pine, grapefruit. Sweet, bitter finish and aftertaste. Nice warming power.
