for anyone that likes strong abv beers and strong hops. Just bite the bullet and spend the money on a bottle of 120min...I love the damn thing. it will put you down. I believe its 21%abv...and you feel it. one bottle is good to split with a friend thats not a lightweight

It's all be covered before but I tend to like the 60 over the 90 and the 120...YMMV

Vinny has it right, Enjoy your IPAs fresh and hopolicious:

Thats about the norm for a 12 oz bottle of 120. I was up in new york and i found this very ghetto beer store but they had a ton of great beer. I found a CASE of 120. Well, i thought it was a case until i opened it, it was acutally a bunch of Shelter Pale Ales in a 120 case. Anyway, i found about 6 120s and they were about $9 a piece. At the gourmet beer store down here in VA, they got 3 cases of 120 in and each bottle was about $10. Dont feel ripped off for paying $10, thats about the average price. And if you see a bottle and have never had it, i recommend buying it. The gourmet beer store that i mentioned above sold out in about 4 hours.

I have about a half a case of 90min in my basement thats over a year old. I don't like it nearly as much as the fresh stuff. Hops are really mellow, and thats the main reason I enjoy the beer.

I did just brew up 5gal of a 90min clone. I can't wait till I keg it!!!

Ohh, and it's worth the $8-10 for a 120.....just once at least. And the World Wide Stout is the same price, and deff worth it. I've got a few in the basement from 2003. I can't freakin wait to drink em, but I'm waiting for a special occasion.

hmmm
I have a great beermonger so it's easy to get my hands on this stuff. With that said, I have IPAs I'll drink before I have a 90 minute. Oh and just so we're all clear, I wouldn't turn one down if offered...

1 case 90 minute + 1 case India Brown Ale = Something similar to Burton Baton

So I would say if you like delicious, well balanced beers then try this one out. The same goes for the 120 min. I just enjoyed one of those on Sunday night, and incredible does not even begin to describe it. The balance and incredible taste almost completely mask the fact that it is a 20% alcohol beer. I've got another one that I bought a few weeks ago that I will probably age for a year and see how it tastes.

I've had both the 60 minute and the 120 minute. The 120 minute is too much in my opinion, it's just too much alcohol. My friends and I split a bottle 4 ways and 3 oz was plenty for me. At $10/bottle it's pretty costly too.

BTW...tried the Dogfishhead Fort on tap this past weekend at 3Floyds Brewpub.
That was like 18% and pretty interesting. A bit overbearing, but enjoyable to try and share.

SWMBO and I split a big bottle of their Fort one time at a pub without realizing the ABV (she liked the label)...we ended up having to wait quite a while before we could drive anywhere as we'd already had a couple of beers. The owner of the pub came over and said with a grin: "I see you're drinking the Dogfish Head Fort - did you know it's the strongest fruit beer made in the USA?" I squinted at the bottle and said "Holey crap, that's why it's kicking my ass" or somesuch witty comment...

Regarding their IPAs, I love the 60. The 90 in moderation is a treat too but the 120 tastes like hopped orange juice concentrate to me...bleahghh!
