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.

Poured from a 1 pt 9.4 fl oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy orange with brown highlights. Smells barleywine-esque. You get citrus/grapefruit, but also malty bread like qualities, and a tinge of alcohol heat. The taste is rather subtle, focusing on light citrus, bread, and dark fruits. Mouthfeel is dense. Carbonation is about average. Things get a tad sticky later on. Overall, a good dipa for those who like them to trend towards the barleywine side.
