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%.

My 500th beer and 175th review on BA.

355ml bottle purchased by my girlfriend at Beer World in Largo, Florida. Pours into the snifter a hazy and bronzed red with orange hues and a yellowish, off-white head that subsides to a paper thin ring. A few dots of lace, but the ABV produces a dull appearance that resembles a barley wine. Aroma is bold citrus, Pine Sol, booze soaked wood, apple butter, and peppery, fusel alcohol. Taste delivers a complexity that one would expect from such a strong and highly hopped beer. I get sweet caramel, some nuttiness, apricots, Sultana raisins, juicy and leafy hops, a sharp citric bitterness, and hot liquor to finish. Full-bodied mouthfeel has medium carbonation and a spicy hop bite. IBUs linger on the palate with warm cider and a mild dryness in the aftertaste.

It took me an hour and a half to savour this ale and I really enjoyed the experience. 120 isn't a "proper" DIPA but it's still a complex and pleasing drink in its own right. Cheers to DFH for constantly reshaping my perception of what beer can be.
