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!

ABV varies from 15-20%.

Picked up a single at the local ABC $12.00 Bottled on 2-17-14

First time I have had a chance to get my hands on one and the expectations were high. This beer did not disappoint. It was very fresh and smooth. The alcohol was there but did not distract from the flavor. Everything about this beer worked for me, a joy to drink.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance:A beautiful medium amber that darkens at its core, an offwhite head a finger deep that stays active albeit subtle throughout the sit, with moderate lacing.

Smell: Plums and raisins soaked in ethanol. Feint malted caramel/figs/coffee. Complex, blunt but intriguing.

Taste: You really get hit with this kind of over saturated malty, sticky, overly sweet fig/raisin taste and then it sort of never goes away and instead finishes soaked in its wet hops with enough alcohol to remind you of why they recommend you limit yourself to just one.

Mouthfeel: As much as it's carbonated (and it is heavily) it still doesn't finish timely or crisp because this beer is so syrupy.

Overall: Dogfish brought me into the game of IPA's and after drinking them so heavily for the last 6 years I've wondered if there would be one that I could retire on saying that it's the "cream of the crop". And while I haven't lost faith in the brand nor the beer, this years 120 minute was sup par for me.

It pours a completely opaque muddy orange color with a thin white head. The nose has pine forest, mango, lemon candy, caramel, molasses, and a touch of char. There's a HUGE hop characteristic to the taste with grapefruit, apricot, orange juice, and orange peel notes. Pitted against that is a cloying sweet malt backbone with molasses and burnt sugar. A lot is going on here and it's overpowering on the palate. The body is full, rich, and boozy: it tastes like someone took a bag of those orange slice jelly candies, liquefied them, and added rum. I also get the taste of plums and raisins, so it has some flavors that are not typically found in double IPAs or other hoppy beers.
