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!

Very malt forward with some sweet caramel and just a lingering of the hops bitterness. Chewy, biscuit mouthfeel, but easy to drink.

Alcohol fiendishly well hidden (in a good way). Molotav Cocktail without the extreme pine flavor and bitterness. A dangerously drinkable beer for the high abv. Bottle aged in my cellar 1.5 years.

Deceiving mouthfeel; a smooth IPA with a big dry bite.

Thick consistency, pours nice. The hop smell is amazing. Alcohol is upper teens/low twenties. It's fresh, crisp, clean hop with a kick. Love it!

People expecting an IPA are sorely disappointed with this beer. "120 Minute Barleywine" would be more descriptive. At over 19% ABV, this "beer" packs a punch. Although this was my first time trying it and because I knew what to expect, I was actually pleasantly surprised by it. It's boozy, it's sweet and it aromatic. A solid sipper for sure.
