Notes/Commercial Description:
HERCULES DOUBLE IPA is not for the faint of heart. It is, however, fit for the gods. HERCULES delivers a huge amount of hops from start to finish. Its hefty backbone of nutty, malty sweetness balances its aggressive hop profile. 85 IBUs.

Holy volcano of head shooting out of the bottle! I thought I was being careful, and this one has been sitting in my fridge for a bit, so it was not warm... Poured out to a beautiful apricot-amber color with a bubble bath of thick orangey head that sat nice and creamily on top. Smells sooo good. Major pine coming from my glass. Fresh juniper berries, walnuts, white grapefruit...
Wow this is good stuff! Creamy, almost thickish mouthfeel, but not heavy feeling, just a bit chewy. A decent amount of carbination, but it flows so well around your mouth that you don't notice it. It feels soooo smooth and lovely. Such good happy freakin hoppiness going on here! Burnt toast, grapefruit rind, peppery, bit of caramel sweetness. Leaves a ton of flavor in your mouth after each sip. Very drinkable for the hop heads, I'm lovin' this one!
