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.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle to a brandy snifter.
bottled 11/9/11

Pours a deep amber red, with burnt orange highlights. A big frothy 1 finger foamy head that slimes its way around the glass, exactly what i want from a DIPA. Big piny hops slam in the face, followed by big juicy citrus with a big sugary malt backbone. Citrus hops on the tongue, mango meets grapefruit, with a strong brown sugar follow up and a lemon meets aspirin bitter bite on the finish. This drinks exceptional, no way this is 10%?? Medium on the body, sugary and tart, bold hops with bitter finish, very creamy and smooth. This is a fantastic DIPA, the look is right the smell is right and damn the taste is right, cheers.

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.
