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%.

A--Poured on draft, bright orange, light white head.
S--strong alcohol scent, intense malt. Wheres the hops?
T--rich malt. is this a barleywine? Alcohol is strong throughout. Some bitterness coming through but not enough in my opinion
M--very thick, full bodied
O--I gotta be honest I was pretty disappointed here. The booziness was a bit too strong and the malts overpowered the hops. I don't know if they boiled away all the hops but they shouldn't have

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

This beer is heavy and hot. It looks common and smells sweet. It has a heavy, sweet, and hoppy taste. The mouthfeel is almost syrupy. Overall I gave it a 4.25 because it has a big bang with the 18% ABV. Otherwise, I would have marked it down for being overly everything. In the end, it was worth the try, but at $3.50 for 4 oz I wouldn't search it out. It was nice to finally try.
