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%.

7/22/11 bottle Poured into a Great Lakes snifter. Appearance is beautiful, little to no head, but an awesome copper color. Very strong alcohol presence, but extremely inviting. Not as much citrus and floral notes as 90 Minute, but this is a totally different beer. The taste is sweet, syrupy, hints of carmel. Tons of sugar, aging would tame it a bit. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky, great carbonation in my opinion. Overall, this is my first 120, so anything was possible. The hype is there, try this one with caution.

First, I love this "beer". Had to have it sent Fedex to my house. Ohio has beer laws that prevent it's availability in the market. Thank You New Jersey!! It's a beautiful orange-ish, cloudy ale with a thick tan head, (kinda like me). The smell is citrus and malt. Lots and lots of malt. Taste is instant hops and alcohol. So much alcohol that I haven't been able to drink 2 in an evening, at home, of course. Great to split with a couple friends, but the drinkability is very tough. Every Hop Head should try it once...OK twice

Had this one on-tap at The Yard House (Las Vegas) 10 Jun 2014

Pours a nice clear/clean golden orange color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger plus creamy off-white head, nice islands and sticky lacing afterwards. The nose is sweet, malty, hoppy, some dark fruit, maybe some caramel. The taste is pretty sweet, malty, nice hoppy effect, some kinda dark fruit going on. Nice sweet after taste with a nice alcohol warming effect in the body. Medium body. Very drinkable, definitely a sipper, I like this one, way to go DFH. I'm glad I had a chance to try this on-tap, way different than the bottle version.

Thanks goes out to Faro for this brew.
