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.

Pours a deep golden bronze. A thick white head beckons me to investigate the flavors in this brew.
MAN! After my first whiff of this baby, I feel like someone punched me in the face with a hop plant! Excellent citrus hop scent, slight pine characteristics.
Sometimes the smell can be decieving, but not with this brew! Great bitter hop taste, intermingled with fruit flavors of citrus, grapefruit and malts. Great balance.
I did drink this for the majority of the evening, so it's safe to say I was surprised and I enjoyed it!
