Above-all, it is a brand name for a pretty darn good India Pale Ale by Dogfish Head Brewing out of Delaware. The number of minutes (they also have 90 minute and 120 minute IPAs) is the number of minutes the brew is boiled while hops are added. The longer the boil, the more bitter the beer.

Simply so, why is it called 120 Minute IPA?

120 Minute IPA is brewed to a colossal 45-degree plato, boiled for a full two hours while being continuously hopped with high-alpha American hops, then dry-hopped daily in the fermenter for a month and aged for another month on whole-leaf hops!

Also, how did Dogfish Head get its name? Dogfish Head Brewery is a brewing company based in Milton, Delaware founded by Sam Calagione. The brewery takes its name from Dogfish Head, Maine, where Calagione spent summers as a child.

Then, what is a 90 Minute IPA?

90 Minute IPA. An imperial IPA best savored from a snifter, 90 Minute has a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. 90 Minute IPA was the first beer Dogfish continuously hopped, allowing for a pungent -- but not crushing -- hop flavor.
