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%.

Dark gold, clear, no head, not much lacing to speak of
Light-moderate Malt scents and citrusy hops come through along with the strong presence of alcohol. By smelling this, you know it’s going to be a big one.
Strong malt and hop presence, quite the kick of flavors. It sure has a “wow” factor. There was a really strong alcohol presence in the finish.
I had to pick this up when I saw it for the first time. I wasn’t sure what I would think of it but it was Dogfish’s fabled 120 minute so I had to buy it... For $20.00 for one 12oz bottle. It was good, but something more novelty than anything, I had a 1000 IBU beer off tap for $20.00 a glass once that was way more intense of an experience
