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.

Thanks to hoppedup for the bottle,pours a slightly hazy deep orange with a tight one finger head that leaves a nice sheet of lace behind.Wow this puppy is hopped to the tilt intense orange and lemon hit with an underlying pine,big juicy citrusy flavors just bursting out at ya i do notice a touch of nutty malt it barely holds up to the intense hoppiness but its there.A slight alcohol burn is noticable not bad in any way,this beer is bad ass and takes no prisoners,hell yeah.

A. Easy poor ¼ inch yellow/white/tan head. Good carbonation. Color is a very hazy golden orange. Almost looks like the glow you see in the movies when they open the brief case.
S. Fruity, monster hops, orange, little pine.
T. Hops, alcohol, orange, pine, pear, oak, nutty, honey. The hops are very over powering, this is awesome.
M. Thick, gritty, dry, delicious.
O. One of the top 5 Double IPA’s I’ve ever had. The alcohol is in your chest, but in a good way. Good ass buzz for only 10% ABV.
