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.

great beer enjoyed alot this past week. much better than their barleywine (old ruffian). big american fruity citrus hops, huge caramel malt background. which i dont mind at all, give me tons of malts, tons of hops, lots of alcohol, and hide it well. didnt notice much difference between my growler and the bottles. sweet, smooth, strong and very satisfying. would (and did) get this one again. recommended.

Pours a red/brown color with a one finger off-white head that settles to a film. As I drink it leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt and grassy and citrus hops. Taste starts with the malt, then I get some resin and floral hops. The sip concludes with more candi malt flavors. Mouthfeel is a little on the heavy side, average carbonation. Definitely an east coast IPA.

Ppoured from tap into pint glass.
Pours a hazy orangey golden. Thick sticky white foam and lacing.
Smells of sweet hops...a bit of candied sugar and slight banana.
Taste is again, sweet hops. Floral and citrus notes mixed with some tropical fruit and a slightly bitter pine finish.
This was a fantastic brew. So crisp and the slight sweet flavor really makes this stand out from other DIPAs. Im glad I got to have it on tap as well.
