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.

Cloudy brownish orange color with a decent head that leaves good lacing. Smells fruity and hoppy. Taste like a tropical fruit possibly a heavy citrus expolsuon but with a grea malt backbone. Medium carbonation and full balanced. Great double ipa! Very different.
