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%.

Hazy orange with an off-white head.

Hoppy, bready, citric.

This is like a variant of Lagunita's Brown Shugga. I've no idea what's going on hop-wise but it's damn near overwhelming. Distinctly sugary, fruity, boozy -- all in some sort of balance. Tart and terribly complex with esters from the yeast, I think. IPAs are generally not for me but this, unlike my taste for Pliny, seems more like an intense barley wine. Hard to interpret but real tasty.

Sharp, as it should be, and more than a little hot.

Almost as good of a beer as you can get

Appearance- Pours a beautiful orange color a fingers width of head. Moderate lacing.

Taste- Booze is hidden very well. Hops, pine, and some malt take over. Very dangerous beer that seems to be in the 6-8% ABV range.
Overall- This is a must on any beer connoisseur. Right up there with Zombie Dust, Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, and Black Note Stout.
