The artfulness of the pre-pour. 120 Minute IPA from Dogfish Head deserves it.
The Scotsman and Drew are joined by Listener James to try the Dogfish Head 120 minute IPA. Folks, this is a rare beer for this area. And an expensive beer. This is neither local, nor reasonably priced, but it is a lovely treat. If you can find yourself a bottle of this, you’re going to pay at least $12/12 oz. bottle, and you’re going to be treated to what is basically a hard liquor of a beer. It’s a great tie in to the topic, however, which is bitterness in beer!
Then they move into a discussion of bitterness in beer and why that involves iso-alpha acids and other scientific chemical terms that are hard to pronounce after having a Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA. We’re about to get geeky on The Ale Evangelist Show. Can Listener James bring the Scotsman back from the beer-geek land of unpronounceable terms? Tune in and find out!
A beautiful beer. We only wish we had more bottles of this lovely offering.

We occasionally get Dogfish Head beers in CA, and they’re always a treat. Recently, a friend of mine brought a pack each of the 60 minute and 90 minute IPA’s, and they really are stellar. This is a great write-up of the 120-minute flavor, and you should definitely read it! Then drink it. Then drink it some more.
