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.

fonefan (51526) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle.
Unclear orange color with a average, creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, heavy to harsh hoppy, orange, pine, resin. Flavor is heavy to harsh sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is syrupy, carbonation is flat. Very very hoppy, way too hot, alcohol just comes through as a burn. Very difficult to actually drink. (120908)

yespr (48061) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a light orange/brown head. Strong grapefruit hoppy aroma. Caramel sweet malt flavour with a good portion of bitterness. Really strong in both malt and hops but maintains a great balance. Strong bitterfinish. Very nice brew.

Ungstrup (38547) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2004
A clear dark orange beer with a small beige head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by alcohol but also with notes of caramel and portwine. The flavor is very sweet, but to my suprise not with much hops in the flavor just a hoppy dryness in the end. The alcohol is very present in the flavor - so much, that it almost burns your tongue. Not at all what I expected, but still a very nice beer.

Clear orange coloured with a medium sized off white head.
Sweet aroma of malts, caramel, hops and alcohol.

A bit too sweet for my liking.

anders37 (27226) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with almost no head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of alcohol and some fruitiness. Only weak hints of hops. Very sweet malty flavor with hints of caramel and alchol. Has a thick mouthfeel and the finish is sweet malty.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2006
Bottled. Copperish amber colour, small white head. Hops and alcohol in aroma. Flavour is sweet candy sugary with hints of hops and alcohol. Quite wineous this too.

3.8
Travlr (26188) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle. Hazy golden amber color, thick tan head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of pine! that almost fills the room. Taste is strong alcohol and bitter pine resin. Like a one track mind.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2011 Bottle at home ... Deep copper/ruby ... sweet rich malty and hop resins ... sweet malty with a pine hop back bone ... packed full and a wonderfull flavour... but it burns the toungue a bit and its alcohol shows way too much... tasted along side the Hopslam ... for me the flavour if more interesting but its let down by being a bit rough... Though the burn grows on you with time, more and more as i get into this. This is a WOW beer 4.3.. 24-4-08

... 19-06-10 ... 2007 bottle ... copper thin lacing ... sweet rich pine hop nose ... too much of the pale ale malt i dont like... softer than i remember ... quite sweet ... but its that malt that doesnt do it for me this time ... It could be the age ... but its really not working for me this time 3.4 (averaging scores)



blended 50/50 with WWS 04 ... deep brown ... sweet toffee malt nose ... very blackcurrant ... lots of toffee ... light chocolate ... again some of the pale ale malt ... juicy really like the fruityness.



Bottle at home ... at Colins tasting ... 06 bottling ... drunk 2011 ... copper ... sweet toffee vanilla very barley wine nose ... sweet toffee ... man this is just a barley wine now ... sweet juicy toffee vanilla 3.5

omhper (25800) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2003
Bottled. Pours thick with amber colour. Appley, cutric nose. Extremely sweet, layers of syrup and sugar covers the hop and malt flavours completely and with it all the finer details. Interesting on paper, but doesn't work in reality. At least not for me.

madmitch76 (25797) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2009
24th August 2008. Cloudy orange brown beer. Low carbonation. Doesn’t actually feel the hop agressive. More like a barleywine. Bitter orange undertone. Smooth finish with a spirity warmth. Different and not what I was expecting!
