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%.

Finally made myself order this last night at Sunset Grill & Tap where it was on tap. At $10 for a 10 oz. pour, I figured I had to give it a go.

Poured a deep mahogany color, with an awesome aroma. Hops, hops, and more hops, with a bit of alcohol mixed in. Definitely resiny and floral.

Taste was surprisingly smooth. The alcohol is surely noticeable, but it drinks like an IPA. However, definitely a sipper and something that is great to take slowly. I could enjoy this for a couple of hours like a nice bourbon or whiskey.

Incredible mouthfeel in my opinion. Bready, chewy but still smooth. Went down a little too easy.

Overall, this was much better than expected. Had yet to try it mostly because I thought it was all hype, but certainly worth seeking out. I would definitely drink this and enjoy it again.

Serving type: on-tap
