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.

A: Amber and copper color. Very little head.

S: HOPS and lots of it. Citrus hint mixed in with more hops. Little earthy.

T: Very strong, the hops jump out right away. If you like double IPA’s, this will hit every taste bud. You can taste the alcohol but it’s not overbearing. Again citrus kick mixed in with all those hops.

M: Full body, but smooth. I feel like I could drink a few of these in one sitting if they weren’t 10%.

O: I love double IPA’s and this one ranks up at the top of the list. It’s one of my new favorites. Like I mentioned above, I could drink a lot of this if it weren’t 10%. Everyone must try this beer.

Bomber with a bottled on date of 2 months ago. Pours a clear copper-amber with a great, sticky head of foam that drops a few rings of lace. Aroma is fairly muted considering the freshness of the bottle. Things pick up on the palate with a punch of dank herbal hop flavor with a resinous hop oil texture. Malt is big too. Thick caramel and bread crust with a more than balancing sweetness. Almost more Barleywine than DIPA. Still a really nice beer. A little dryness and some more hops would put it more in line with my preference in this style.
