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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Reddish/Orange with a brown hue as well. A very foamy head with good retention to it.

S: Pine hops and sugary sweet malts.

T: Lots of floral tastes followed by pine hops with a caramel/brown sugar sweetness. The caramel sweetness makes it unique for a double IPA

M: Nice carbonation feel. Pretty thin feel for a DIPA w/ this much sweetness/balanced of taste. Was expecting something more surupy but pleasantly surprised at the thinness.

D: I definitely don't taste the 10%abv. It has a really nice balanced taste. It has a distinctly different flavors than the Titan IPA which I appreciate from a brewery. Also the first DIPA I've had with the caramel taste in it.

One of my favorite double IPA's and pick one up every time I see it in the store.

Bronze color with nice lacing pretty clear.

biscuit, light molasses, light hops, butter, and a hint of whiskey and crisp flavor at finish.

Serving type: big bottle

Bottle Design: 8/10
