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.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2008 Pours amber, no head. Almost wine like the alcohol is completely here. Nothing but hops with a sweet barleywine like taste and a cringing amount of alcohol. It is what it is.

Pours amber with almost no head. Strong piney hop aroma. Sweet malt taste up front fades in and out with the hops. Flavor is everywhere. Big hop bite at the end with an aftertaste that leaves you wanting more. Reminded me of Dreadnaught in a way. Cant understand how this beer only has a 3.8 average. Even at $9 a bottle it is worth every penny.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2005 Just an absolute fun beer to drink. I treat this stuff like it was a treasure. Flavorful, smooth, and enough in one bottle to sit you down this beer has it all. Very rarely do you find a beer that can be considered a definitive artform, this is one of them.

What can I say? Not my favorite style, but I couldnt imagine anyone doing it better. The hops arent even as intrusive as the regular arrogant bastard, but the flavor is incredible. Everything is beautifully balanced; its strength is masked by the wonderful choice of hops and the perfect amount of carbonation...

SilkTork (5583) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2004
Aug, 2003: Bottle. Gentle citric aroma. Huge syrupy thick flavour - spicky and shocking, almost revolting. Doesnt invite further investigation - in fact, the opposite. A gagging action comes into operation after a few sips. A true drain pour. A crude and excessive beer that doesnt taste as if its been fully brewed out.

dark amber orange color. smells like a hell of a lot of hops. superb mouthfeel, just the slightest alcoholic tingle (20%? how??). hops on the palate everywhere except the finish, which is sticky and malty sweet. lots of hoppy flavors, like grass, grape, pear. coats your mouth like syrup. awesome beer.

Is over thte top to strong to discribe this? NO, this brew is way over the top. As a non hop head I tried this just to say I had and guess what? It is what it advertises. I really did think I would taste the alcohol more.

Amber/orange. Poured with thousands of tiny bubbles working their way in slow motion to form a quick settling head. What can I say.. Its all about the hops. Smells like a hop frappe which is nice if youre a hop addict like myself. A really green, earthy hop aroma blends with fruity citrusy notes of peaches in heavy syrup. I can actually smell the leaves and stems of the hops in here. Amazing. Mouthfeel is slick and chewy sticking to every tastebud in my mouth. Incredibley smooth and dangerously drinkable. Flavor is much like aroma. Peachy sweet and a hop lovers dream beer. The finish is candy apple sweet. The alcohol is really hidden well but warms you up gradually. If youre a hophead you must try this one.

Sampled GABF: [very sweet, surprised by the amount of malt thats very sweet. Raison, plum, very hoppy. So much like hop candy.
