COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Too extreme to be called beer? Brewed to a colossal 45P, 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 IBUs, you can see why we are calling this the Holy Grail for Hopheads. Editors note: ABV reduced down to 18% in 2009.

5oz pour, on tap at Kline's. Hazy golden pour with a glorious head. Wow. Big malty backbone on this beer. Super sweet pine notes, almost no bitterness. I've read others note how this beer hides the alcohol but I feel like I'm being punched in the jaw by it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden, hazy, frothy tan head. Raisin, maple, floral, and candy aromas. Sweet malty flavor with an alcohol flavored finish. Medium-thin body. Raisin, alcohol flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MetalNHopHead (1652) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA really is one hell of a beer. While 90 Minute IPA seems a little reserved for its 90 minutes of hopping, 120 Minute is balls-out hoppy. Huge resinous nose with pine, orange peel, grapefruit, and pineapple. Flavor is bitter, citrusy, piney, sprucey (is that a word?), and floral. This is pretty aggressive stuff, which makes sense given the 120 IBUs. The fact that the 18% ABV is almost entirely hidden by the sheer amount of hops is pretty impressive. I practically chewed my way through the 5.5 oz pour of this.

rentonj7 (234) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Deep copper with classy lacing. Very oily with long and strong bitterness. Assertive citrus/pine hops on nose. Caramel, raisin, then concentrated hop resins in mouth. Prominent boozy presence hints at whiskey.

Not a fan of malt, and this has maltiness. High ABV. Good mouth feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Satyroneto (340) - BRAZIL - OCT 20, 2016
Cor de cobre escuro, com pouco brilho; espuma marfim de baixa formao e baixa persistncia, quase sem lacing. Aroma de caramelo, doces de abacaxi e maracuj e lcool. Sabor inicial de caramelo migrando para um amargor intenso (com notas ctricas e resinosas) no final; Retrogosto persistente, fortemente adstringente e de lcool intenso que aquece a boca. Corpo mdio/alto e baixa carbonatao. Como toda cerveja extrema, pouca drinkability.

markducommun (988) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Clear golden, no head. Quite malt forward, sugary sweet nose. Raisin. Booze. Some extremely concentrated resin. Fairly dramatic mix of bitterness, sweetness and alcohol, all equally present throughout. Very oily, heavy body. Long finish. Good.

wombat23 (969) - Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours copper-amber, hazy. White head. Aroma of citrus and caramel. Taste is a little citrus, a little caramel, and booze. Lots of booze. Sweet with an intense alcohol-laden finish. Definitely warms the belly. Nice to try but probably wouldnt purchase again.
