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.

A- Very nice IPA, in the top 10 class. Poured a beautiful frothy orange head with a rich cloudy amber/caramel color.
S- very light sweet hoppy with a hint of malt.
T- very rich hop blast on the tongue with very light bitterness.
M- coats the palate with a bold richness that last to the next sip.
O- would rank this IPA in the top class, great appearance with a great flavor. Light smell gives to a nice hoppy flavor without a lot of bitterness. Well balanced.
