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.

12 oz bottle. Hazy orange red color with an off white head. Alcohol hops resin aroma. Caramel sweet honey upfront with a bitter lingering finish. Very heavy body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Absolutely fantastic IPA! Everything about this beer is perfection. The only exception is it is only available twice a year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerextreme (11) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2016
After the 60 minute, I had to go the 120. Hard to describe as its so big and complex with malts, sweetness and bitterness all colliding in this beer from every angle. Its complex, rich but oh so delicious. Not for the faint hearted

TheCaptMatey (211) - Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Poured a hazy dark amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is a surprisingly sweet malty mix of honey, dark fruits, grassy and pine hops, and, of course, alcohol. Flavor is rich caramel, honey, and stone fruits with a bitter bite from grassy, citrus, and pine hops. This brew is a continually crosses the line between malt sweetness and bitter hops, while alcohol maintains its warm presence.

mambossa (319) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2016
Gently-hazed late-sunset-gold pour with small head. Rich dried apricot and sweet malt nose, a bit of a chemical-y note that blurs into a soapy florality. Flavor starts piney and sweet, some herbaceousness, caramel, apricot and orange. Full, viscous body. A bit more on the barleywine side than an IPA. Headache-inducing, but different than expected.

nickel (1036) - - SEP 16, 2016
Aroma: pine, grass, some sweet honey notes Taste: sweet malt and honey from the start, heavy grass and pine flavor after that. Thick and sticky. Bitter aftertaste. Easy drinkable as for this ABV

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
michcam8 (523) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Pours a hazy darkish-golden glow, with a little fluffy white head. Perfume, floral hop aroma and caramel malty overtones. Taste is sweet and malty - up front, bitter, floral hops, and slight alcohol burn. Dry, caramel malty, bitter hop finish. Feel the belly burn. This would be a one and done for me, mainly because of the price. For the abv, I find it to be a good balance of hops and malts. Overall, its better than I expected. Would recommend to others...sure, why not.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 7, 2016
Orange golden color with foam ring. Intense hoppy (liqueur) nose. Thick hoppy liqueur with a very noticeable amount of alcohol in a very decent mixture with the bitterness and carbonation, but in total a bit too much. Decent hoppy liqueur aftertaste.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 17/20
anstei (1460) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle. A triple IPA to define standards. Intense pine aroma. Mouth is ultra heavy, thick, sticky, sweet. Pineapple, for sure and for real. Boozy, but not nearly as expected for 18% ABV. Feels like the tongue sticks to the roof of the mouth after swallowing. Ultra long super sweet finish with lots of pineapple again. A revelation indeed.
