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.

This tastes like dogfish 90 with a cup of sugar and pineapple garnish. Hops are never allowed to come through due to the sweetness. The brew tasted a little better as it warmed but definitely not worth the price.

VastActiv (3305) - 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 (699) - 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 (865) - 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 (571) - 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.

Hammy78 (797) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle shared with my wife, picked it up at Consumer’s Beverages Niagara. Pours a classic copper, about a finger and a half of white head, that dies to nothing short of a ring, leaving some lacy specks. Nose is obviously hoppy, tropical, more piney sap. It wasn’t the blast I was expecting to get. Tastes surprisingly balanced, it’s malty sweet, with some caramel notes, hoppy and bitter with some heat from the booze and a little bit of a tongue number which I don’t know if it’s the Abv or the hops. I was stoked to finally sample this, and would gladly have again if I could find on draft or a more reasonably priced bottle.

On tap at hop cat. Second time having this on tap. Super intense but pretty well balanced given that. Tastes almost like a wine. One of a kind ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arnold931 (691) - Iowa, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear dark orange with lots of alcohol legs. Decent off white for an 18 percent beer. Nose is lots of hop, alcohol and sherry or brandy. Taste is hops and alcohol and malt sweetness. Big time alcohol burn. Love it!

arkurzynski (1631) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Deep amber with quickly fading head. Nose is very boozy. Booze, booze, booze, citrus, orange, and caramel malt. Flavor is boozy caramel malt, citrus, orange, faint grapefruit and almost a raisin-y character. Lingering citrus rind, sticky malt and booze. Just too boozy and a bit too unadventurous.

Awesome brew with an aroma that filled the place. Mouthfeel was a little cloying sweet but the only downside. Would like mpu xxipas dryer but the hops killed it fricking awesome hopped up brew.
