Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: filabrazilia on 04-11-2004

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: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

very malty, very bitter, very hoppy, even almost very roasty

and very dark, actually (well, for an ipa). i'd call it a very reddish dark amber—with a creamy merengue head that seems to be pumping itself out of my st. bernardus chalice. grassy hop aroma that is almost upstaged by the roasty malt character. bready, dark fruity

it tastes like it smells: complex, roasty, nutty, with big hop all the while. it's a piney hop with sharp bitterness. the malt character almost seems such that this beer could be a barleywine. frankly, some of the sips find the hops to be secondary

excellent lacing and creamy mouthfeel
