5/1/09 bottle to snifter. Glowing dark amber honey color with a spotty white head. Delightfully sweet aroma of almond, white grape juice, and agave. Sweet and syrupy in the mouth. Reminds me more of a dessert wine now than a highly hopped beer. I may never drink 120 Minute IPA fresh again.
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Very strong alcohol aroma overpowers the hints of citrus hops. This beer pours a cloudy amber with a minimal head. It's a sweet taste, there's dark fruit and some citrus. Thick, creamy texture with a full body. I was expecting more TomTron (462) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2017

Pours a nice amber color with a very sweet hoppy citrus smell. Minimal head. The taste is hoppy upfront but sweet almost like pineapple, the finish is crisp with a slight lingering hop note. Overall a very good IPA that I’d get again

This one weighed in at 18.5-21% alcohol. Tasted like it, and that's why I love it. Sampled at Reefpoint Brew House, Racine, Wis.. cwill (108) - Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2017
Thick murky amber pour with a thin head that disappeared quickly. Smells delicious, with aromas of hops and fresh dough. Tastes surprisingly sweet with white grapes and orange liquor; a little hoppy, grapefruit bitterness to balance it out. Nice alcohol burn as it goes down but not what you would expect from such a high ABV. Almost like a 90 minute with extra kick. Viscous mouthfeel; probably the thickest beer I've tasted with little carbonation. Really good beer and more docile than I expected. Still only drinking one though. I'd put it there with Samichlaus as one of the more unique beers I have tasted.

Pours a hazy copper with a white foam head. Aroma is very boozy, with citrus, floral, and earth hops coming through, as well as caramel malts. Flavor is boozy, sweet caramel, and citrus hops. Has a smooth, full body, syrupy. Quite good - a hybrid barleywine/double IPA. brandon1989 (712) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2017
Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium off white head that left some nice lacing rings around the glass. The aroma is more sweet than hoppy. The most dominant aroma is alchohol with some faint pine and citrus notes. There is quite a bit of warming as you drink this beer, the alcohol is very noticeable. The flavor is very sweet again more so than hoppy. The alcohol is also very dominant in the flavor as well. SDalkoholic (2444) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 10, 2017
Bottle from Sprout's: Poured a dense raw golden honey hue that was murky while the head was a foamy layer that quickly bubbled down. Aroma is strong in malt and reminds me how a barleywine smells. Earthy hops are picked up as well and some minor scents of fruit such as dried peach or apricot chips finish my nose off. The drink is strong and delivers a high level of alcohol immediately. Flavor is sweet and bitter yet has tastes of apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, and a drop of soy sauce or fish sauce finishes it up. Had this before, but was so wasted I couldn't even write about. So glad they put bottles out again in my humble corner of the U.S. Anova167 (390) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - NOV 3, 2017
Clear pale copper color served in a wine glass on draft. Aroma is hot alcohol and resiny hops. Overwhelmed by the alcohol. Thick mouthfeel and a barley wine esque maltiness. Sweeter finish with sticky cloying mouthfeel. I don’t really like this if evaluated as an IPA. Even as a barley wine, it is not well balanced and very caramelly rouhlas (3977) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - OCT 31, 2017
From bottle thanks to George! Almost clear golden color with white head. Malty aroma, sweet, caramel, bread, alcohol, resinous. Sweet and light bitter taste. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.
