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. Easy poor ¼ inch yellow/white/tan head. Good carbonation. Color is a very hazy golden orange. Almost looks like the glow you see in the movies when they open the brief case.
S. Fruity, monster hops, orange, little pine.
T. Hops, alcohol, orange, pine, pear, oak, nutty, honey. The hops are very over powering, this is awesome.
M. Thick, gritty, dry, delicious.
O. One of the top 5 Double IPA’s I’ve ever had. The alcohol is in your chest, but in a good way. Good ass buzz for only 10% ABV.

LOOK: Beautiful Light Carmel Orange Color with a Picture Perfect White Foamy Head that Remained Almost Through-Out...

SMELL: Hoppy Aroma that is Strong but Not Over-Powering....Subtle Nutty Scents are Evident also.

TASTE: A Refreshing yet Bold Malty Flavor that leaves no doubt that you are consuming a Higher ABV (10.0%) IPA yet ISN'T Harsh.

FEEL: Moderate Carbonation, Crisp Refreshing,

OVERALL: A Truly GREAT IPA that delivers in BOTH Taste and Kick. It is Obviously NOT a "Session" Beer but If you want to Relax and Casually ENJOY a Snifter or Two...I would HIGHLY Recommend this Gem!
