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.

Sampled on tap at city beer. A big time ipa. Hops are not as extreme as advertised. Still just awesome and creative brew.

$12.99 for a single 12 oz bottle from W&M Mansfield. Poured into a snifter. I let it warm up for a while. A deep medium amber color with a thin light tan head. Big boozy and sweet aromas. Flavor is big and sweet with a thick mouthfeel. Decent hop balance. Earthy and muddled. Not overly bitter with all that sweetness though.

2014 bottle to snifter, Aroma is citrus- mostly grapefruit, some malts and a little booze, taste is hops, caramal, and almost seems charred. Very warm on the finish, and very boozy even though the abs is still well hidden... good, a sipper for sure

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle. Dark golden orange pour with a filmy layer of beige foam. Aroma is a blend of pine resin, ripe citrus, alcohol and brown sugar. Taste is caramel malt, orange liqueur and resiny hops bitterness w/ notes of grapefruit rind and candied tropical fruit toward the end. Mouthfeel is naturally sticky and syrupy with soft carbonation and a final shot of dark sugars and citrus booze in the finish. Much like World Wide Stout or Olde School Barley Wine, it’s a palate wrecker that drinks more like a liqueur than a beer.

2015 version. Pours a dark copper orange with a nice white head the retains and leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma of malts, alcohol, pine, citrus, fig, dark fruit. Taste is strong and boozy! Alcohol and malts up front with a lot of hop resin backing it, mostly pine with citrus on the backend with caramel, toast, and biscuits. Big alcohol burn going down. Big, full body. Creamy, thick texture. High carbonation. Bitter, long finish. Overall a good sipper. Would be great for aging and I’m certain a lot more flavorful after several years in storage.

Reddish copper flavors or Fruit hop sweet booze burn linger - surprised it took a few years to sip on one of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
