This beer is really hard to find. By hard I mean, I’ve developed a network of beer buddies who alert me when they find a bottle. I have befriended a beer store owner who promised he would hide a bottle under the counter. One guy I know got a Saturday morning call at 7am from his beer store owner. He dashed out in his jammies and bought 2 bottles @ $8/bottle. This is a highly coveted beer, in short supply for a limited amount of time each year. It would not be wise to be between me and a bottle of this stuff.
How did this beer ruin my other IPAs?
It was so good that it made my personal stash of IPAs pale in comparison. I compare every new IPA I try against this monster.
I think you will agree, that once you’ve had a Dogfish 120, all IPAs even the Dogfish 90 and 60 just don’t taste as good any more.
A buddy handed me a bottle of this IPA last year. It was aromatic, heavy bodied and absolutely intoxicating. Ahhh, let’s talk about intoxicating for a moment here. This stuff is potent. It’s a buddy beer because you need to share your bottle. Split it in half trust me. The taste and aroma is an adventure and frankly even a half glass overwhelms your senses.
From the brewer:
Clocking in at 15-20% ABV and 120 IBUs, it’s easy to see why we call this beer THE HOLY GRAIL for hopheads! 120 Minute IPA is 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.
This is a very good beer, just don’t stock up on other IPAs before you try it.

This beer made my Beer Shelf of Fame. It’s displayed prominently in my kitchen. If you look closely there’s a “Hello Kitty” beer up there too, but that’s a story for another day.
