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.

My favorite DIPA by a country mile. Superb mouthfeel, dark/amber color. Hoppy but not overpowering as evidenced by the 85 IBU rating. 10% IBV has a nice kick.

Near perfection.
