Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) recently announced that 120 Minute IPA has once again returned to shelves.
Do you like hops? I mean . . . really like hops? I mean . . . like a level of hoppiness that makes you wonder if it could possibly strip paint? Me too, and that’s why it is such good news to be able to report that Dogfish Head’s 120 Minute IPA is back for a limited time. If you are unfamiliar with this offering, 120 Minute IPA is an Imperial IPA that typically clocks in somewhere between 15% and 20% ABV. To counteract the sweetness level that is produced at this elevated ABV level, this offering is “continuously hopped with a copious amount of high-alpha American hops throughout the boil and whirlpool, and then dry-hopped with another pallet of hops” to rack up an incredible 120 IBUs. Often referred to as the “Holy Grail for hopheads,” 120 Minute IPA is an extreme take on the style that is a perspective-altering, craft beer experience you will not soon forget.
120 Minute IPA is available now as a limited release and sold as single serve 12 oz. bottles. Look for this offering now at select craft beer retailers in Florida and in any state within Dogfish Head’s distribution area that legally allows the sale of beers of this ABV. 120 Minute IPA can be enjoyed fresh, but it does equally well when aged for a few years. That said, the brewery recommends that you do not attempt to tackle a 12 oz. by yourself. Find a friend, share, sip, savor and discuss. Prost!
