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.

best before 15 aug 2012

poured a really nice clear copper/amber color. inch of off-white head. a thin ring is left about half way through.

smell had nice hops, malt, bitter aromas.

taste was a bit hoppy, very malty, well balanced in terms of alcohol. overall it was good but i don't feel like it captured a dipa that well.
