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%.

This beer has a lot of hype about it, and it sure does live up to it ! As the thick aroma hits your nose, you know you are in for a treat. It is bold, has a lot of character and you can certainly taste the alcohol. However, unlike most beers, the strong alcohol flavor takes nothing away from the taste. If anything, it adds to it. This is a beer that you want to sip on and if possible, condition if for a while as it ages very well. Overall, this is one of the best beers around. My only complaint is the appearance is very plain. However, we all know that it doesn't make a bit of difference to the taste which is why this beer gets a perfect overall score in my book.

A-hazy dark gold color with a small head that faded quickly and leaves very little lace
S-malt, strong malt and strong hop
T-you get a strong sugar taste that goes to a strong hop aftertaste, but the sweet taste is mixed with it along with an alcohol warming
M-full body and low carbonation
O-Bottled on 7-8-2008, so it was aged and do not know if it had changed. I am looking forward to trying a fresher one
