Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA (2012)

Dogfish Head describes this beer as “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!”

Given that, what’s amazing is that it is almost completely lacking in bitterness. It’s smooth, immensely strong, and flavorful. The flavour is unlike any other beer. So hoppy it’s … sweet? Almost malty, even.

Yes.

A thousand times yes.

Or, at least, two more times for the two bottles I’ve laid down to age until 2013. Whereupon I’ll probably write about them, too.

  1. Don’t get your hopes up; the annual releases tend to sell out quickly. If you turn up in Seattle, though, before my two tucked-away bottles disappear you may have some luck convincing me to open one.
