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%.

I've rated a ton, but I'm compelled to comment here. 120 may pass as decent for a barley wine, but as a DIPA it is terrible. Alcohol overpowers it and the hops are nowhere to be found. Maybe it's my fault for expecting a HT or PtE because of hype, but it's nowhere near the level of any of the great DIPAs.
