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%.

Too much alcohol to get a good taste, start with the 60 then move up.

Wow.

Aged since July 2013.

Delicious. Very hot alcoholic finish even still.
Very sweet but well balanced. Dark fruit flavors. Raisins. Dark chocolate. Apricot kinda.

Very delicious and worth the wait.

Tastes to me like a Hoppy Quad with a bite.

8oz pour into a snifter. It's a boozy IPA in the vein of Founders' Devil Dancer. A ton of smooth alcohol with heat and hops, but not the slap-you-in-the-face hops a lot of IPA's strive for (and I distaste). Delicious.

My first one of these; not at all what I was expecting as "the HOLY GRAIL for hopheads." A sweet malty booze bomb that I sipped on and contemplated for about 40 mins while Mingus tunes bounced in the background.

Not a ton of hops going on at all actually. Some mention barleywine and I agree but this beer really is in a class of it's own.

A unique sipper that caught me off guard and left me feeling toasty. Dig.

For me, gets better with age. Taste is sweet and smooth with a pleasant booze finish.
