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.

12oz bottle.

A- Pours a murky yellow/orange color with a thick white head that leaves decent lacing.

S- Pine and citrus dominate the nose. Some faint malt sweetness along with a good whiff of alcohol.

T- Bitterness paves the way and finally yields to some citrus and caramel sweetness in the finish. Alcohol is very apparent. The hops are the showcase with a bit of pine and grapefruit.

M- Medium bodied with decent carbonation.

O- A little hot for my liking, but still a very tasty DIPA.

clear deep copper body with two fingers of thick sudsy off white head, decent retention and lacing. smell is mainly caramel malts and pine hops, little citrus in the background. taste is more malt than hops, still tastes plenty piney, which i dont like. wish it were more citrus forward. has a medium body oily mouthfeel with decent carbonation and a long dry bitter pine flavored finish. this is a pretty standard dipa by many standards and falls short for me because i dont like drinking a christmas tree, prefear citrus forward ipas.
