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%.

This beer has intense layers of flavors from sweet to citrus to malty bitterness. After a few sips the bitterness of the hops gives way to the more complex flavors. At 15% ABV it packs a punch: It hangs pretty heavy in the mouth and has more alcohol burn that I expected. It is something even an experienced beer drinker may want to work up to. And this is not to be taken lightly.

This is a monster beer. It pours an orange amber with minimal head on the glass, about one finger. The krausen attenuates early but lingers with good lacing throughout. The aroma is one of my favorite characteristics. You get a ton of citrus off the bottle, which amplifies as you pour. The malt aroma eventually overwhelms and you end up with a subtle, but very nice, earthiness. The taste is amazing. Citrus up front, which gives way to malt and ends in butterscotch. The mouthfeel is heavy. You can literally feel the malt on your tongue. Overall, it is hard to believe 120 is an IPA. It is complex but very drinkable. It's easy to see why this is the beer that Dogfish hangs its hat on.

*Beer burps taste like Werthers Originals
