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.

This is a complete IPA. I wouldn't say it's cloudy, but definitely not clear, with a coppery color and a slight, thin head. Alot of these stronger IPAs are quite citrus like in smell, but I would say this one is more floral than citrusy, and I would say the same about the taste. Floral, fruity, with less powerful citrus undertones hop flavors, with a sweet malt. This is a very well rounded, heavy IPA.

A- Amber in color, semi clear beer. Huge off white head with great retention and excellent lacing.

S- Citrus hops, pine hops, and a bit of caramel malt.

T- Initial minor caramel malt taste and then a huge hop explosion. Citrus and pine hops galore. This is NOT a balanced beer, but I love it! Can you say BITTER??

M- Thick, chewy, and bitter aftertaste left in my mouth.

D- Not extremely drinkable from a session sense, but extremely drinkable for hop heads. Love this beer and could drink 2 or 3 in a sitting.
