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.

Im a big fan of all the DFH beers Ive tried, including the 90-minute IPA and the WW stout, so I was very excited to give this one a try. The aroma coming from the glass was wonderful, with strong hop and fruity smells. Once I got it in my mouth, though, I was disappointed. The feeling on the mouth is syrupy, and the taste is overpoweringly sweet and alcoholic. To me, anyway, the taste of this one is very similar to the WW stout, but without a lot of the complexities. What works in a stout doesnt, for me at least, in an IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 Got this one courtesy of the best liquor store in Tucson, nay, the world, Plaza Liquors. Appearance: Slightly reddish hazy yellow, almost copper in color. Aroma: Super nearly sicky sweet hops. Flavor profile: Thick, rich, hoppy, intense, not for the weak of heart. Almost Brandy-like characters. Palate: Thick and rich, hot, aggressive, definitely a sipping beer, very nice! Overall: If IPA were distilled into a spirit, this is pretty much what youd get. Its a big intense awesome beer that becomes amazing as you age it.

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - NOV 13, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 Clear amber, small head which is more than I expected. Aroma is strong citrus with pine and lesser grapefruit. Huge malt backbone present as well. The alcohol is there, but youd never come close to guessing 21%. Very sugary malts overpower the hops, but everything is so big. This beer bludgeons the palate, and I like it! Very balanced for its size.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 13, 2005
Brewed 03 04 05. Light aroma of warm alcohol and hops. Sweet liquer of alcohol, malt, hop oil and hops. Orange with thin foam. Hops are more noticeable in the hop oil and body than in flavour. Alcohol comes across more extreme than the hops. Alcohol comes across too much to qualify as a top beer for me.

2005 bottle. No head to speak of, a dark copper. Starts with a bit of hop flavor, then gets really sweet. Real thick, elixir like. Pretty good overall, not worth the price tag.

Quickly dissipating head and burnt orange color. Smells like orange rind and damp earth. The palate is so disappointing. Tastes like orange concentrate/limoncello, both of which I cant stand. The beer is way too hot with alcohol and tastes like an orange Crush after two bags of Halloween candy.

Similar to the DFH 90 Minute in both appearance and taste. A ruby to amber color with a quickly dissipated head. Plenty of grapefruit and sweet as could be expected. Hoppy? Duh. Dont let those similarties fool you, though - this packs a wallop. The alcohol is disguised all too well and begins to hit you slowly as it warms you up from the core. I managed to drink a whole bottle but dont remember much after that (or during the quaffing process come to think of it). Fortunately, I had my wife along to drive my passed-out ass home, and since I can only tolerate her driving when Im drunk, I like to think that this really worked out well for me.

Not too shabby...Not much of a head to speak of along with pungent, thick aroma consisting of a sweet, alcohol scent. Very much like the Immort Ale except stronger with more alcohol present. Not bad but I like the world wide stout better.

On tap at the Blue Dog in Lansdale as part of a DFH tasting. Pours a translucent golden with a small white head that left decent lacing. Aromas is candied sugar, orange and a sweet maltiness. Flavor is sweet, real sweet but I actually like that about this. Alcohol picked up in the flavor. Almost a bit sticky yet nicely balanced. This is an extreme beer and Ilm glad I got a chance to check it out. Thanks to Rob (owner of the Blue Dog) for making sure I got free sample while we wait about an hour for a table at the joint. This thing gives you an instant buzz.
