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!

2014 Bottle

A: a clear and dark amber/orange pour with some head, but not much.

S: Fruity, vanilla and booze.

T: similar to its smell, but more sweet and caramel. I can taste the booze but it's not overwhelming.

M: fairly Barleywine like, has a heavy malt thickness to it.

O: a beer that I don't get to have very often on the west coast, I like it enough to trade specifically for a couple bottles each year.

Burnt orange and slightly hazy colour, almost the shade of pumpkin. Small bits of sediment, so definitely pour this one.

Very boozy smell, but backed up by plenty of sweet caramel malts and blended fruity/spicy hop notes. The scents come in very smooth and sweet, much less hoppy than one might expect.

The taste is also heavy with alcohol, but this beer is so packed with flavour it's already a sipper. Sweet, smooth and toasty malts up front balanced with oily citrus and spice from the hops. Again not overly hoppy, but the flavour lingers throughout.

Medium-thick mouthfeel with a dry burn from the high ABV on the finish.

This is a fantastic IIPA, but is dominantly malty and boozy. The hop flavour is superb and you can even taste it on your lips, but I'd like to see it brought out a little more.
