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.

From notes, bomber into a tulip.

They describe it as delivering a huge amount of hops with a nutty and malty sweetness. The hops are definitely there, which I appreciate, but when it comes to an IPA, maltiness is usually the last thing I’m wanting, but this one delivers. The maltiness is JUST right and the sweetness is just enough to compliment the bitterness, not cancel it out. I had mixed feelings about this before I tried it but really enjoyed it from start to finish.

Verdict: Very solid IPA, especially for one that breaks from the norm. Can’t wait to sample more from Great Divide.
