    Dogfish Head 120 minute IPA

    I just had a bottle last night. After some serious effort to obtain it, I managed three bottles.

    Oh, sweet hop bliss.....

    You managed 3 bottles? And what time did you stroll into work today?

    I think 120 is a unique beer. I like it but know plenty of folks who don't. Perhaps we should do a poll.

    I've been looking. Haven't found one yet.

    I like the 90, but Sherwin Williams was out of that last time I stopped in, too. (And while I like it....$8 for 4 bottles? Not going there often...)

    I managed to BUY three bottles, not drink them...

    Sheesh you'd O.D. on hops, but I'd like to try that on night.....

    it is usually kind hard to find...if your not on top of the release dates from the brewery, you'll likely miss out

    All the Sam Smith beers are $10 for 4 bottles, here. I buy the India Ale semi-regularly.

    Only $2 per beer for a Double IPA that takes more malt, more hops, more time for the hopping, etc. A fair price to pay for such a beer if you enjoy it. 48 oz. of beer...nearly two bottles of wine. Tell me where you can get 2 bottles of comparable quality wine for that price (besides clearance)?

    Cheers!

    Excellent point, but then again, I'm not refined enough to drink wine.....

    Easy there.

    I didn't say/feel I was being ripped off. For me, that's just more of a "somewhat special occasion" price and strength.

    Wine does have a higher abv. More fermentables cost more, so the difference is worthy. Always compare based on "standard" serving sizes. With beer, you can argue over the 12 or 16 oz serving size, but the law says 12. Wine should always be a 5 oz serving. Distilled spirits being 1 oz.

    Compare what you'd like. I won't quibble over 2-3% abv, give or take. Good craft beer is an incredible value. Guess I'm a bit sick of cashiers looking puzzled when I purchase a $8-12 bottle of beer, yet they don't blink at a $20+ bottle of wine. Same with the beer lovers who balk at $8 for a sixer of beer. Many don't think twice about dropping $25-30 at the sports bar for some pints with buddies. But spend $8-10 on the same beer to take home. God no..it's too expensive!

    Teej, I understand where you're coming from. I love a bargain and have to spend my beer $$ wisely nowadays, too. Just a sore subject with me.

    Cheers!

    When my assistant brewer and I tried the 120 for the first time, we had heard all the hype and were still not prepared for this beer. What an experience! We looked at each other and said "They DID it!!" WOW! It IS a hop monster, but the malt backbone is still strong enough to balance it!

    I hope to brew one like this soon!

    Btw, the hops they use are Warrior, Simcoe, and Amarillo, right?

    I'm curious if there is clone recipe out there......I figure probably fifty plus for a five gallon batch, but hey.....
