Dogfish Head "120 Minute IPA"
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery - Milton, Delaware USA
Imperial IPA (ABV 18%) (IBU 120)

[Suggested Glassware: Snifter]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a hazy burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that was mostly diminishing leaving behind a small collar and poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a sweet grain malt, pine and citrus hops and a sweet soapy yeast with notes of apple, citrus (orange and grapefruit), pineapple, caramel and a slight alcohol tinge.

The taste was very sweet with a mild maltiness and had hints of caramel and orange early on, and then became very hoppy with a strong boozy grapefruit note and a touch of candi sugar and pineapple at the finish. The flavor hung on for a very long time with a sweet hoppy alcohol burn left to fade away slowly.

Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a syrupy texture and a very soft carbonation.

Overall a very sweet boozy brew that grows on you with every sip, and even though it possessed an extremely high ABV the sweet malts helped to take of the edge...
