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%.

One of the stronger widely distributed beers available, so I had to give it a shot. Bottled 28 Feb 2013. Tasted 4 June 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours clear medium orange. Just a dusting of whitish head, not much visible carbonation. Looks syrupy.

Smell is an amalgam of fruity hops (mostly citrus), beefed-up sweet malts, and an alcohol pinch. Leans toward sweet and fruity, but there's so much else going on that it's hard to pull out the individual components. Complex in a kitchen-sink way.

Taste is... sweet and alcoholic. Exactly what I was expecting, but still a bit of a shock to the senses. Makes me tingle on one sip, and shudder on the next. A kick in the pants, but a remarkably enjoyable one.

Mouthfeel is really nice, in an odd way. Quite syrupy, leaving a sugary residue on my lips after the taste. Medium-low carbonation, but I think any more would be too much. Lasting and luscious.

A very interesting beer. It's powerfully sweet, and powerfully alcoholic, but there's so much variety in the flavor that I barely (for 15% plus) notice the alcohol. Despite this bottle being relatively fresh at 3 months, I find this more like a barleywine than an IPA. If an IPA, it's certainly a malt-heavy one.
