I've rated a ton, but I'm compelled to comment here. 120 may pass as decent for a barley wine, but as a DIPA it is terrible. Alcohol overpowers it and the hops are nowhere to be found. Maybe it's my fault for expecting a HT or PtE because of hype, but it's nowhere near the level of any of the great DIPAs.

Updates:
4-1-15 - St. Baldricks event at Jamison Pour House with Jen and Ann. Single serving limit, so I saved it for my last. Planet the Elder also on tap. Superb as I had Enjoy By 4/20 earlier in the day.
5-24-15 - 2003 vintage cellared and purchased from Monk's two years ago. Shared with Ryan a few days after his graduation. Nice and smooth. Bourbony with carmel flavors. Low carbonation. Aged very well.
5/8/16 - 2014 vintage that I had in the cellar. Popped just one for Mother's Day. My new tradition. Awesome.
