Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA
While in New York, I was able to grab a bottle of Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA. Going into trying this beer, I was expecting a hop-overloaded IPA, and boy was I surprised at how wrong I was. The beer pours a brilliant amber color with a bubbly and foamy white head. The aroma consists of caramel with light hop accents. The taste is sweet and caramel. The surprising factors was that the beer was not overly hoppy, but provides a great hop accent. There is a slight spice on the finish. The alcohol content is 18.0% ABV. I thought that the 120 Minute IPA was an amazing beer and I did not expect it to be as sweet and caramel as it was. This carries a “Definitely Recommend” tag from me.
