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.

Slightly boozy aroma, sweet and resinous. Pours clear and orange with white head. First sip is bitter and almost like a barleywine, long bitter aftertaste but keep going and the flavor transforms into a sweet / bitter treat!

It reminds me of Thomas Hardys Fine Ale! One of my all time favorites.

One of the most unique beers Ive come across. Totally meant for sipping and enjoying a cigar. Dark orange color with a big head of cream colored foam. Very sweet caramel malt base lending flavors of burnt sugar and raisin. Hopped to perfection in order to cut through that hefty malt bill. Some pineapple, grapefruit and peach rounded out by a mellow dryness. Has a strong likening to small batch bourbon. Top notch all around.

Finally got my damn hands on this one! So... sort of met my expectations: intense, boozy, oily, slightly spicy, and lots of malt to balance the considerable hoppiness. Of course I am happy to try, but would not intentionally seek out in the future. single 12oz bottle

12oz bottle pours a brown color with a bit of head. Musty hops and lots of alcohol heat.

lownote (584) - Austin, Alabama, USA - APR 22, 2017
Delicious piny hop flavor. A bit fruity too. Pours bright orange and clear. Nice color. Taste is really big and malt forward, surprisingly. Its not a heavy malt. Its a crystal sort of sweetness, to my palate. Definitely a little straw, bread, but reminds me of chewing on English crystal. Not at all cloying. Hop bitterness is there but not over powering. I get some orange notes I would guess is hops, but might be yeast. Everything comes together nicely. Thick thick body. A bit of alcohol warmth, which is a good warning since its 17%, but it doesnt feel too warm. Delicious.

ffaoe (745) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2017
Fresh bottle - mild citrus aroma with faint pine notes. gold and clear in color with huge long lasting head. very intense malt and hop flavors. strong notes of medium crystal malts, raison, pine, and resin. a bit boozy. cant wait to age a few out.

darb85 (267) - Canton, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2017
Sweet apricots and booze on nose. Deep amber with minimal head. Booze leads with raisins and smoky molasses. A bit of a booze burn finish. Medium thin body. Decent and worth it but it is a bit exorbitant in these parts.
