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%.

Bottle dated 2012.

A - Cloudy orange. A touch of head and a small amount of lace. Lots of sediment flow

S - HOPS and BOOZE! Potent. Warning...flammable!

T - Sweet and malty. Hops are up front and are huge in the aftertaste. The sweetness is up front, and the booze is potent from the 1st taste all the way down the gullet. Definitely warms you up quick!

M - Full bodied, oily and slick. Coats your mouth like syrup before it releases its hop bomb!

O - A sipper for sure, but an amazing one at that. Well done. Think of it like buying a nice bottle of wine. It costs the same and is definitely a sipper

Copper colored body, thin white head. Somewhat cloudy but not opaque.

Aroma is a great pairing of thick, sweet malt body and aggressive hopping. Hop resins float above a stew of sweet bread scents. Hops are leaning on the piney resin side of American hop profiles.

Bitter hop flavor up front immediately washing through thick sweet maltiness. Swirling flavors of pine resin, toffee, caramel and rich doughy fresh baked bread.

Thick mouthfeel sticks to the roof of your mouth and coats the tongue with lucious flavor. Somewhat chewy. Hop resin flavors flow throughout the aftertaste mingling with warming alcohol heat to create a stiff but inviting bitter finish.

A monster of a beer that responds well to some warmth and sips like a good cognac. I suppose I should share with a friend... but I won't. It's all mine.
