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%.

Beer pours a bright and shiny copper color so looks incredible. Head is non existent but nice amount of bubbles coming from bottom. Very complex taste that is piney and sweet. No single fruit overwhelms my senses. Has a finish similar to sake. Alcohol content is well masked on front end but more noticeable on the back end. Cool beer to try.

A: Rust/amber/deep orange/almost red color, ompletely opaque and hazy. Only a small ring of off-white head with a few streaks. You try carbonating wood grain and see if you get any bubbles.

S: Big maltiness. Sweet smell, quite pleasant. Not overwhelming.

T: Very sweet, fruity, very malty, honey. Far less boozy than I expected. 18% ABV is arguably well-hidden. Not for chugging, but drinkable. It’s a sipper if only because of the price!

M: Heavy, sticky, gooey. Good-syrupy. Again, little carbonation.

O: It’s a great beer and I’m glad I found some to try out. I understand the price because you don’t find Imperials or Belgian Strong Pales at or near 18%, but my budget says stick with the 12% Imperials at 4/$12.
