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%.

Aggressively poured into a pint glass. This might be the second time I've had this but I can't fully remember.

A: pours a dark amber for me, bit hazy, with a nice light golden head which died quickly. Left minimal lacing.

S: alcohol, candy, bit of hops(grapefruit?, perhaps lime) on the nose, alcohol.

T: alcohol, candy, faint hit of hop spice initially then malty/sweet body. I get some hop bitterness after swallowing but it dies quickly.

M: seems a bit thin for the ABV.

O: I think I like the 90min better. Despite the 120IBU touted, I don't get it, and for that I'm disappointed. Regardless, this is fairly well balanced for the ABV. Perhaps they should call it '120 minute IP Barley Wine'.
