Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: filabrazilia on 04-11-2004

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.

On tap at George Keeley's, 6/27/10.

A-Pours a crystal clear amber with a very thin white head and good sticky lacing.

S-Sticky sweet hoppiness with a good sweet malt backbone.

T-Great sweet malt in the front with lots of sweet pine hops. Delicious.

M-Medium bodied with good lingering bitterness.

D-Delicious and remarkably light for the ABV. Nice to revisit a classic.

A - Pours a amber color with a finger of head that holds

S - Hops, citrus, and alcohol in the nose

T - Very hoppy up front and lessens to end with a bittersweetness

M - Full body, some alcohol warmth, nice carbonation

D - Very good brew, the only thing I cons of this beer is I think it is too sweet, but overall an enjoyable experience.
