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.

Wordsworth (147) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2015 1yr old bottle poured into snifter. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin white head that lingers throughout. Scattered, sticky lacing follows the drink. Aroma is pine, honey, citrus, moss, booze, grapefruit, and candied sugar. A fresh bottle has an astringency to the scent that is gone in this aged version. The flavor is piney sweet with sugary citrus notes and a tinge of malt. The ABV is well hidden after some time in the cellar, but is noticeable after some gulps. A medium mouthfeel accompanies a lively feeling on the tongue. Absolutely delicious beer and a perennial favorite. It’s like beer and mead had a beautiful baby together.

355ml bottle from Elizabeth Station shared with George on Greenpoint campground. Slightly hazy golden with a tan head. Aroma is slightly bready, candied citruses. Taste is similar, very boozy. Quite good.

Hazy dark orange with thin off white head. Orange, malt aroma. Sweet, boozy bittersweet flavors. Big, thick, juicy body. Long malty, bitter finish. Heaven on steroids.

Had to rate because of all the FB ranting about it and in bev. Sam wants it pulled. Don’t know if I blame him or not but thought I’d get a rating in. Dark copper penny color and incredible hop aroma. Thick and kind of sweet it only downside, alcohol well hidden. Really good and really expensive.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2017 Bottle into snifter. Pours a deep amber with a white head. Notes of floral hops and booze on the nose. Same on the palate with a bit of caramel. Nice slight booze burn on the finish. Great brew but not worth the price tag.
