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.

By far one of my favorite beers, the sweetness of the flavor came as an incredible surprise. The floral hop aroma deceives you into thinking it will be a bitter beer, but it is anything but. With subtle notes of marmalade in the taste, and a cognac liquor finish, this beer is surprisingly delicious.

VinegarStroke (414) - Napa, California, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle: just because you can do something doesnt mean its right. Deep copper color, good head and lace. The aromas are dominated by a slow or stuck ferment. The palate is sweet and hot. Its probably has a high VA. Folks talk about hops, I dont know how you see them with all the malt, alcohol and slow ferment profile. Intense flavor but no balance. A very poor beer.

coachd (770) - Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Smells surprisingly malty and dank with some spicy hops and booze. Great burnt orange color with a tiny cap of cream colored foam. Tastes sweet up front, then slight pine hops with a boozy aftertaste that lasts a long time. Smooth palate, the only noticeable carbonation is at the end. This was good. Not worth the hefty price tag, not one of the best DIPAs I have ever had, but good.

Bottle shared by MatC, thanks - Color: clear amber beer with no carbonation and no foam. Smell: resin domination and caramel, pine. Alcohol. Taste: full body with strong resin blast and caramel. Very bitter and quite hard to drink. Interesting. Good body and nice attenuation. Aftertaste: resin and dry bitterness blast, alcohol. Very good for such extreme beer.

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.

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.

Andrew196 (1808) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2017
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 (139) - 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.

shawnmurphy (261) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2017
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 (13) - 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.
