Beer Blog: The 120 Minute IPA Has Arrived


It's true, Public House has been graced with a few small kegs of Dogfish Head's fabled 120 Minute IPA, and just in time for our weekend homestand against the Dodgers. If you call yourself a Hop Head and you are yet to try this beer, you are truly missing out on a landmark beer. Dogfish Head takes pride in the fact that the 120 Minute is quite possibly "the biggest IPA ever brewed" and, at 18-20% ABV, 120 IBUs, and a 45-degree Plato reading, it would be hard to prove them wrong. Whereas some beers might be compared to other beers of the same style, or even comparable wines, Dogfish Head's 120 Minute IPA is truly in a league of its own. With a heavy, syrupy body that balances out the bitterness from the high-alpha hops, the 120 Minute may remind some drinkers of a particularly complex Scotch or a Bourbon, rather than any other beer that they have tried before. "Too extreme to be called beer?" asks Dogfish Head...we'll let you decide.
