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%.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz brown bottle poured into Sam Smith pint glass

A - a hazy orange fills the glass when held up to the light; when left unlit, the color is more of a darker/burnt orange with some copper. the head is sparse to form, and dissipates quickly, leaving a thin orange-cream colored head

S - well, to put it simply: hops, and a lot of them. quite over whelming, too. the bitterness is foremost noticeable, then come in some flowery aspects, lightening the experience a bit. there is some grapefruit rind, that might be a way of explaining the bitterness in the nose. the alcohol is what lies underneath all of this, not that noticeable yet.

T - the first thing I taste is a distinct sweetness on the tip of my tongue, this spreads back and envelopes the whole of my mouth. it is sweet yet tart, like candied rind. the finish presents a huge explosion of hoppy bitters in the mouth and some dry alcohol burning down my throat. the aftertaste is initially sweet, like a sugary sweet, but fades to hops and then alcohol. this isnt a very complicated beer, nor does it really get the chance to; it just kind of gets in your face and goes "hops and boooze!!!!" then it tones down when you finish the bottle. not bad, but with the price tag of about $8.5, not something I would want to buy again.

MF - the feel is quite thick and the carbonation is not terribly noticeable. this makes for something one really has to sip, no gulps here. the thickness is a bit unappealing for how much alcohol is in the brew, makes it a bit like a hop-a-hol slushie.

D - the drink is really hampered by the overall texture of the beer; if it werent a chore to drink it, and were a bit lighter the sure I would have another, despite it not tasting amazing
