Awesome beer. All the dogfish head IPA’s are excellent. I usually get the 60 minute because it’s not so expensive and just as good but this one is worth trying.

Hazy dark orange color with off-white head. Aroma has bittersweet dried orange peel and boozy orange liquor. Taste starts bittersweet with piney hops and orange peel but then the booze kicks in and burns your throat and insides. Medium body and carbonation. It has classic IPA flavors but with the alcohol overwhelming everything. Really difficult to drink.

The 120 minute IPA is a wonderful hoppy beer. The Taste is incredible and does indeed taste a bit like fall. It is a thick beer that coats as it goes down. I think that it had a bit of a delayed release in my stomach as I certainly felt it in my stomach well after I had drank it. Next to the 60 minute IPA, which is my favorite IPA, the 120 minute IPA is right there next to it.

I didn't have internet when I tried this beer, so this is written some time afterward. I remember that I liked it. I don't remember much after that. Nice flavor, not much bitterness & not much alcohol flavor with it's 19.something %. It did have a delayed stomach burn though. I'll have to try another for a more accurate review.
