COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Too extreme to be called beer? Brewed to a colossal 45°P, 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 IBU’s, you can see why we are calling this the Holy Grail for Hopheads. Editors note: ABV reduced down to 18% in 2009.

I didn't like it . They did better with the 90 min. This taste like straight alcohol. Bums juice. I'm sorry but just my opinion. The hops are faint. Alcohol is the main taste. Some fruit notes. But again the alcohol drowns out all the other flavor and character of the beer. Was very excited to try this and when I did... it was a let down. Check out the tasting on my channel https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Wnw9jw4Bjyo -& via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The look is like piss after a very, very bad night, the smell is hoppy, malty, , citrus, the taste is honey, hops, bitter fruit mixed with sweet fruit. I know Pliny is the IPA to drink but I prefer this one.

Pours light copper, foamy white head. Aroma and flavor are as advertised, big hop punch, white grape peel, some wood and caramel. Distinct burn going down.

beer_queue (147) - California, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Pours clear copper with a thin white head. Faint aromas of tropical fruits (lychee), bitter/peppery hops, and pure alcohol in the back of the nose. Initial flavors of caramel malts, light tropical fruits, citrus fruits, and peppery hops. That sweet arrival is short, being rushed outta the way by the alcohol. Medium-light body, low carb. Finishes bone-dry with a clinging warmth of alcohol. Basically, its boozy heat distracts from the best parts of the beer.

On tap at Earth Eagle Brewings in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Pours slightly cloudy orange-amber-ruby with thick, whipped cream head. Aroma: slightly sour citrus, faint sweetness. Flavor: caramel, toffee, dried citrus, serious pine hop resins, blood orange. Mouthfeel: rich, thick, a big-time chewer. A warming booze burn at the finish that slightly singes the nose hairs.

ImportBeerMan (14) - Pintsville, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Bottle: Pours hazy copper/gold with a white head; aroma of caramel, dark fruits, booze; taste is initially a barleywine bittersweet with hints of caramel and citrus fruit, finish is boozy. A good one (1) sipping beer... over priced IMO.

jehoesefat (372) - Poway, California, USA - MAY 1, 2017
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 Hardy’s Fine Ale! One of my all time favorites.

One of the most unique beers I’ve 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.
