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.

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

Sample: 1 bottle 2012

A: Dark orange in color, moderate internal carbonation, pours a moderate off-white head, translucent

S: Reminiscent of DFH 120 minute ipa, moderately fragrant, strong citrus notes, definitely heavy apple notes as well, quite apparent alcohol notes

T: Much akin to the nose, citrus, tropical fruits and apple, some alcohol to finish, well balanced sweet and bitter elements, powerful flavor

M: Despite its high abv and intense flavor, very smooth and drinkable, even refreshing, mild alcohol/citrus aftertaste, only slightly lingering, not overpowering and surprisingly not very drying

O: All elements are in sync, great flavor, smooth and balanced, a must-try, perfect example of the style

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Amber and copper color. Very little head.

S: HOPS and lots of it. Citrus hint mixed in with more hops. Little earthy.

T: Very strong, the hops jump out right away. If you like double IPA’s, this will hit every taste bud. You can taste the alcohol but it’s not overbearing. Again citrus kick mixed in with all those hops.

M: Full body, but smooth. I feel like I could drink a few of these in one sitting if they weren’t 10%.

O: I love double IPA’s and this one ranks up at the top of the list. It’s one of my new favorites. Like I mentioned above, I could drink a lot of this if it weren’t 10%. Everyone must try this beer.
