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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Sampled on 10-26-07

Pours a relatively clear golden amber color, with an average head that leaves behind immense lacing.

Smell is all hop resin, very sweet and fruity. A generous malt backs it all up and adds a nice balance.

Taste is big grassy hops, sweet and earthy. The malt is there is the background, followed by a big-time bitterness.

Mouthfeel is super thick, all hops, all the time.

Drinkability is good, but this is an extreme beer.

Overall, one of the better double IPAs. Enough malt to keep the bitterness in check, and all the resiny hops and alcohol you could want.
