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%.

On tap at amherst brewing company rare beer week. 2011 vintage.

Looks hazy amber, great lacing and very inviting

Smells subdued, slight hop aroma which is surprising considering what this beast tastes like

Tastes like honey, flowers, citrus and has slight ethanol in the background due to the high abv. The malt is apparent but is drowned by the absurdly delicious hops. Fantastic and somehow balanced in its extreme ways

Mouthfeel has good carbonation, zing from the hops and alcohol. Enjoyable.

Overall a phenomenal beer. This is good out of the bottle but fantastic out of the tap! Wow. Will be ordering more of these in the future. Cheers!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a tasting glass.

The color is a clear orange/gold with a finger of foamy white head and some slight lacing left on the glass.

The smell is a bit hoppy but with malty sweetness that was a bit surprising. There is even a slight spicy flavor that gives a bit of a zing to the nose.

The taste is big bitter hop flavor with a good sized alcohol flavor. There is some fruit flavor there that is a little piney flavor mixed in. It is hard to draw on much since there is such a large bitterness there is also some sweet malt flavor that comes out when your able to get past the hops and alcohol.

The feel of this beer is big all around. The force of this beer as it mahandles your pallet is something else. I had to take my time with this one. I had a small glass but it still took me a while to get through the little I had. This must be the bitterest beer I have had even though I never did check the IBUs.
