Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA

This last week I got a chance to try Dogfish Head's 120 Minute IPA; a special occasion indeed. The beer is rarely brewed and is therefore hard to find. It is also expensive. 

The beer has a high ABV of 15-20% (!). As Kim reminded me, Sam says, "it's a sipper."

It's like hop liquor, with a strong alcohol smell and taste. Despite the high 120 IBU rating, I didn't find it to be bitter. It tasted great.

The beer looked like it had small particles of hops suspended in it. I don't *think* it was carbonation.
Suspended Particles of Hops?
