I tried this beer yesterday, $11 for a four pack. Very Hoppy, Alc 9%. I put one in storage for some aging may be some more of the malt will come through after a year or so. This beer was thick. A ton of body, Thats the only thing I did'nt like, If you like hops try this one out. They have a 120minute IPA but I have not tried it yet. They say they continually hop this beer for 90 minutes, I guess a hop additon for each minute.

Yeah. I like that beer but in small doses.
After I drink a couple a feel like I just had a big meal and several beers.

The 90 is definitely good, I havent found the 120 yet but can't wait to. I love ridiculous IPA's.

Mark me down as not a fan of the idea of aging/cellaring 90 and 120...they can be on the edge of cloying as is. I have had a few that I suspect were a bit long in the tooth while on the store shelf and that sticky sweetness was really pronounced and not to my liking....accentuating that wouldn't be to my preferences.

I've had the 60 and the 90min. 60 is almost an accessible brew for non-hop heads, 90 is up there and intensely hopped, I loved it. A local bar has the 90m and they're great because they're so strong and they're about the same price of getting them in a store, of course I cant drink anything after those retard my pallet.

I saw the 120Min at Whole *Paycheck* Foods and they wanted $10 for a 12oz bottle sorry but thats drawing the line for me. I guess I wont ever have that beer if that price is indicative of what they average price is for them.

Have not tried any but the 60. My brother went out and bought a case of 60 and found that it was just too much for him, so he gave me the almost-full case (24/12oz), which seels for about $35 here in PA. He made my day.

Tell your brother to get the 90minute

My local grocer had the 90 for 8 bucks last week and I tried it for the first time. Loved it! Went back for more...sold out!

An excellent IPA and one that would definately benefit from some aging. I love this stuff and look forward to trying the 120 min when I find it again.

had my first bottle of this the other week. Fantastic beer with a great hoppiness to it.

I love how well it hides the 9%.
