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.

Linnet (1758) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2016
Extremely rich and potent, orange marmalade, alcohol, caramel and butterscotch, resinous and light grapefruit. Amber colour, medium off-white head, good amount of lacing. Heavy sweetness, big bite that is softened by the alcohol, pine, boozy, very warming. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, bitter and boozy finish. Been yearning to try this for at least 8 years.

Pours a hazy dark orange color into a dogfish head glass. Vintage 2/2014. Its very intense but not very lasting aftertaste. Alcohol is very present with a burning alcohol feel. Sweetness almost detracts from all the nice hops that have matured in this bottle. Its on the fence between being a triple IPA and a barleywine. Very good but sweet.

Finally found this one! Heard the stories. It pours golden and cloudy. Has a strong smell to let you know the alcohol content is there. Drinks less strong than the content dictates. Taste doughy and toffee as have heard. Not my favorite but had to try it. Alcohol is too high and hoppy goodness is gone or cant shine thru.

Gerbeer (3411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber with moderate head. Aromas of toffee, doughy bread, and wet toasted malts with a little spice hanging around. Flavours follow same - big chewy malts - with peppery alcohol and spicy fruit. Hoppy? I dont know... 18%? Jesus....

For such an outrageous beer, I have to give Dogfish Head credit for making this as drinkable and tasty as it is. Very happy I finally got to try it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I have enjoyed pretty much every dogfish beer I have had but I just really don't understand aging an IPA. This beer leaves me with all the flavors of an IPA I dislike and removes all the hops and flavors I enjoy.

Ive had this on tap and in bottle. Probably one of my favorite of the high abv beers. Doesnt really pass off as an ipa, its smooth and sweet with little bite. Mix this with world wide stout for an awesome black and tan.

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 2/28/2013. Pours very hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, lemon peel, pineapple, tangerine, peach, mango, citrus rind, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, lemon peel, pineapple, tangerine, peach, mango, citrus rind, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon peel/rind, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitterness and spicy alcohol on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy/slick mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with a light-moderate warmth lingering after the finish with zero booziness. Overall this is an outstanding DIPA, especially considering the ABV. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the huge ABV. Extremely surprised and impressed with this vintage, as there is still a ton of hop complexity present and it does not feel overly heavy or malty at all; even after being nearly 3 years old. Other vintages I have had at similar age have been much sweeter and a bit cloying. A highly enjoyable offering.

Bottled 07.22.15. Poured on 12.06.15. A: Orange, lemon, peaches, caramel, and apricot. A: 1/2 finger head settles down to a ring and a thin white coating. Hazy amber body. T: Orange, lemon, peaches, caramel, and apricot all dominate. Lots of alcohol heat, but that is to be expected. P: Smooth and syrupy. O: Its good, but doesnt reach the level established by the hype.
