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.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

a= Pours a copper orange hue with some haziness
thin white head

s= The smell is very sweet, orange citrus honeysuckle sweet flower aroma.

t= refreshing, and crisp on the palate leads up to the toasted malt which gives way to the intense hoppiness a little zip zap zing that i love dry-sweet hop eruption.

m= The mouth is left somewhat spectacular, but not overly dry, very smooth throughout. outstanding

dynamite drinkable brew.
