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%.

Pours a light amber with a very slight white head. Nice aroma. Alcohol for sure, but pleasant booze. Big citrus notes as well, grapefruit, orange peel. Some honey too. Really complex flavor profile, as you'd expect. Really hoppy, really malty and really boozy all at the same time. Citrus dominates the hop profile with sweet and tangy grapefruit and orange hops, but a bit of pine as well. No bitterness. Really sweet sticky malt. Caramel and even a bit of toffee, but it fades and the hops take over more the further into the beer you get. Then there is an overlying presence of alcohol throughout the entire flavor profile. It's quite tasty tho and doesn't overpower. Very viscous and sticky. It's a very complex and unique brew and definitely worth a try or 3.

12oz bottle poured into Dogfish Glass

A: A nice golden brown in color, with slight head at the top and barely any lacing around the glass.

S: Slight hints of grapefruit and a sour beer, the alcohol is present in the nose as well.

T:First taste is booze warms you right to the bone, more malts than hops very odd for a DIPA, good balance though.

M: Mid-high carbonation, medium bodied.

O: Not quite what I was expecting, I was thinking this was gonna be off the charts but it was just simple. Lots of booze, one was enough for me.

A- Pours an orange copper color with a small, white, quickly disappearing head.

S- Overall sweet smell. Strong smell of oranges and honey. light tropical fruit smell. only a hint of malt.

T- Very sweet and alcoholic. The orange and honey flavors come through very strongly. A warming alcoholic flavor.

M- Very full bodied and heavy. Coats the tongue. Carbonation helps to lighten the beer a bit.

O- A nice beer once in a while but the intense sweetness, heaviness, and alcohol make it too much for an everyday beer.
