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.

12oz bottle at Firewaters. Pours out a light amber color that you can tell is very, very thrick. The aroma is balanced not too hoppy, not too malty. The taste is suprisingly malty, I didnt believe it myself, but it almost overshadowed the hops. Still has huge hop flavor that packs a nice punch. Decent beer, but only for now and then

fresh 12oz bottle from Jonathan3584 - Thanks!! - Pours light amber but quite thick with a nice medium offwhite head that laces pretty well all the way down the glass. Aroma is sharp citrus and pine and almost tickles your nose to sniff it. Flavor is surprisingly sweet honey-like over malt with just a touch of the alcohol flavor but not enough to be overwhelming. Finishes with a big warm alcohol effect. On the palate this is the thickest beer of this color Ive ever seen. Actually feels much like a barleywine on the palate and flavored like one too. Another very unique beer from DFH. I expected more bitterness in the flavor but I enjoyed what I got.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2006 "Was disappointed in this one. Normally like DFH. This one poured a couldy yellow with almost no head. Beer was way to sweet could taste the malts and wasnt till all the beer was out of my mouth that i got a hoppy taste and it was a weak one at that. Mouthfeel was very thick. Overall not great. And not worth the $$ at all."

Very thick, deep amber hue. Nice frothy grey head. Remarkably does not have a strong alcohol taste. I love IPAs which is why I bought this one. Ill stick with the 90 minute.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2005 Hoppy, almost no head when poured. I nice deep golden hazey color. Surprisingly sweet like honey. The bitterness balances the sweetness and the alchohol is well hidden. This is way more a Barley wine then an IPA. A masterpiece! I have already had 7 of these.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2007 re-rate. Huge hop nose, pine, grass, molasses, citrus; grapefruit. Pours a rich amber almost a light brown color with a dense white head that dissipates slowly. Huge malt backbone to balance the outragous hop flavor. Pine resin, big citrus hop flavor, with large amounts of caramel and molasses with brown sugar, sweet bread. And an enormous alcohol presence, 21% is hard to hide, it does well though. Surprisingly easy to drink for the hops and alcohol. Actually this beer is pretty well balanced, for the IBUs and ABV...................O.G. rating. Hoppy grassy aroma. Pale golden color. Sweet yet hoppy. A bit acidic. Kind of earthy. Thick tasting. I love hops and the 120 does me right.

03 12 oz bottle. This is the sweetest IPA Ive ever had. So sweet that the hops play second fiddle to the malt. I do love the flowery hops. The sweetness has a cider taste. This is a barleywine in my book. I split the bottle with my brother and 6 ounces was plenty for the night.

Me likey IPAs. Me likey Dogfish head. Ive had the 60 minute already. This one is better. Looking forward to the 90 but I dont think it will top this. Very nice orange-amber color. Very hoppy nose with citrus hops dominant. Palate is bright and crisp with a bitter aftertaste. Delicious. yum

06.30.05 12oz bottle, 2004. Mostly clear amber pour with a fine and rising tan head that seems to want to escape the glass. Lacing is immediate, sheeting, and marshmallow sticky. Aroma is hot, as youd have to expect. Deep layers of madly sweet aromas: melting grapefruit marmalade, orange jello, ambrosia, and brain numbing booze. The flavors are huge, abusive, angry. Heaps of citric and floral hops, resinous as a forest yet draped in honey. The palate would be screaming in pain if not for a gloriously thick body, oily, soothing, a salve against the liquor working the enamel off my teeth. Wow. 120 is always a fun ride.
