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.

Dark amber color with a two inch head and good lacing.
The aroma of malts,hops and grapefruit.

The taste is sweet malts,hops,fruits and a mild grapefruit with a hint of alcohol.
The feel: medium body and a smooth carbonation. Great balance. Some mild bitterness that stays on the tongue.

Notes: A fine beer indeed. I picked this up and I got exactly what I expected.

Cloudy brownish orange color with a decent head that leaves good lacing. Smells fruity and hoppy. Taste like a tropical fruit possibly a heavy citrus expolsuon but with a grea malt backbone. Medium carbonation and full balanced. Great double ipa! Very different.

On tap

App- Reddish amber with a minimal head but great lacing. Constant spider legs down the glass.

Sm- Piney hops backed by caramel and a little heat.

Ta- Powerhouse of grapefruit, pine resin, caramel and more pine resin. Intense, but in a good way. Booze is there, but not in the forefront.

Ov- I like the slightly more roasted character that this has as compared to other DIPA. Excellent, excellent beer.
