Beer added by: frank4sail on 03-24-2003

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%.

Had this on tap.

Ok, I have never had this and when I saw my local taproom had it on tap I knew I had to give it a try to see what all the hype was about. I am not an IPA fan. The only IPA I like is Hopslam so I was skeptical going into this. A/Golden hue which I was expecting. S/Hoppy and sweet. I am not too sure what I was smelling that was sweet. T/Wow! This was thick almost syrupy with a sweet taste. It reminded me of a Barley Wine and then the hops hit me near the end. The hops were not a bad thing like in other IPA's I have had. It did not seem to kill my palate and the hops seemed to be balanced. I think some breweries throw as many different kinds of hops in and load it to the max and end up having a bitter, palate killing beer which people love, but I think DFH thought this one through and took their time. O/ I will search this out again but at 18% you have to make a commitment to it :) I can say I was very pleased and impressed. I feel that this beer lived up to its reputation. Well done!!

Just as an afterthought I did not think the alcohol was too apparent but my GF said "It is good but I feel like the alcohol just punched me in the face." haha

Malty, boozy and hoppy. Kinda sticky/sweet. It had been a while since I've had this but much better than I was expecting.

I can't add anything that hasn't already been said. Just a little bit boozy at the end. Just a little.
