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.

Poured from a 1pt, 6oz bottle into a Duvel stemed glass.

Colour was darker than i expected. Deep rust-like tones, warm hues. Nice think 1/2 inch head of frothy goodness also noted

The smell is good. Hopps, some citrus notes present. A very clean smell.

When it comes to IPAs, i tend to judge things around stone's Ruination. I'd say this is in the same ball park. Lot's of hopps, some blueberrry, and a bit of spice to the finish. A real lip smacker.

I could probably drink about 2. I think anything more would be overkill.

Good beer. Try one.
