Notes/Commercial Description:
Too extreme to be called beer? 120 Minute IPA is brewed to a colossal 45-degree plato, boiled for a full two hours while being continuously hopped with high-alpha American hops, then dry-hopped daily in the fermenter for a month and aged for another month on whole-leaf hops!

120 IBU
ABV varies from 15-20%.

Was not expecting this. It's really hard to put this in the class with other Imperial IPA's that I enjoy so much. At first smell, I knew that this was something very different. A boozy, almost bourbon smell - nice, but wow! The appearance was a very clear copper with good carbonation. Taste was nice at first, (by the end of the bottle, I had enough) with a real malty sweetness and a really subdued hop character - hard to believe that the IBU's on this are at 120. Very nice tasting - sweet, with a warmth like a distilled whiskey. I can't say that I didn't enjoy it. I did, it took me around an hour to sip through 12 ounces. I'm glad I tried it. I don't need to try it again - especially at $13 per 12 oz. bottle.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.5

12oz bottle poured into Teku glass.
Bottle is fresh.

A: Pours a rich amber, slightly hazy, with minimal off-white head.

S: Not a whole lot here. Some citrus, caramel malt, and alcohol.

T: Hot. Most certainly doesn't drink like most IPA's. Extremely alcoholic. Citrus with substantial malt presence. Bitter.

M: Viscous, bitter, spicy, and feels somewhat syrupy.

O: Perhaps this would be better after sitting a while. Not my cup-o-tea. Reminds me very little of a typical IPA. Everything about this beer is too extreme, really just a novelty - but I already understood that prior to purchasing. Would likely be a drain-pour if I hadn't paid almost $10 for it. Overall - poor drinkability and a poor value.
