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.

This brew pours a copper color with a frothy white head, some of which lasts until the end; thick lacing.

The smell is citrus, orange, melon and pine with a few roasted malts in the background; the hops dominate as they should in this style.

The taste follows the nose with orange, mint, lemon pine and a little bit of tobacco with a substantial roasted malt background. There is some alcohol leaking through but that does not detract from this brew or this style.

The mouthfeel is thick and chewy, hop oil remains on the tongue after swallowing.

Overall this is a very good Double IPA. A good representative of the style and another winner from "Great Divide"
