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.

I am proud to say that I still have one of these in my cellar! The problem is, what is a big enough event that I should bring it out? I have had the privalege to drink my fair share of dogfish head, but now I find myself in an area that does not have it and I miss it. Time to order online I guess! 120 is an experience every true craft beer lover should have. While the 60 min would be more of my normal drinking style, the 120 tells you a story of balance with smooth amounts of high alcohol mixed with high levels of hopping. It’s amazing what some companies can achieve with beer.

Amazing beer. 3 sips and I already feel a bit tipsy. Great IPA taste without the overly hoppy taste. Definitely taste the amount of alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy golden orange with thin off white head. Has a honey, lemon, caramel, peach, and a slight alcohol aroma. Very sweet upfront into a light bitterness, and had a nice warming alcohol finish. Medium body that was oily and chewy on the palate. Still as enjoyable since the last time I had it.

Its everything advertised, a great example of the style. Shared a 12 oz bottle, thought it was clean, great flavor and mouth feel but really boozy and warm. Glad to have tried it.

This beer is ridiculous! With such a high ABV, it is surprisingly easy to drink. Nice on the palate, great aroma! If you can get your hands on one of these, don't pass up the opportunity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bigda83 (284) - Jamestown, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with a medium white foamy head. Aroma was floral and citrus hops and tons of booze. Taste follows the nose well. This is a tough one to drink and overly boozey to me. Myself and two other did a 4 oz split on this and glad it was that way. Too strong to drink a whole one.

Aroma is very interesting. Deep fruits, spice, lemon. Honey, a little hop bitterness and pine. Plumbs, alcohol. Really can't tell the alcohol. Amazing beer. Glad to have tried it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

revolution2718 (263) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Fresh. Pours a hazy orange, a shade lighter than copper, almost no head. Nose is tons of floral hops, citrus, a bit tropical, a bit of astringency from the alcohol. Taste is bursting with fruit flavor, juicy oranges, pineapple, sweet malt, almost no bitterness on the finish, there's a slow burn from the booze, warming like I took a shot. Has a kinda sticky mouthfeel. As I drink more it gets challenging to drink. The abv is so high it gets unpleasant after a while. I like the taste, the abv is its downfall to me. It's worth a try, but I can't drink more than half a glass.
