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.

Bomber with a bottled on date of 2 months ago. Pours a clear copper-amber with a great, sticky head of foam that drops a few rings of lace. Aroma is fairly muted considering the freshness of the bottle. Things pick up on the palate with a punch of dank herbal hop flavor with a resinous hop oil texture. Malt is big too. Thick caramel and bread crust with a more than balancing sweetness. Almost more Barleywine than DIPA. Still a really nice beer. A little dryness and some more hops would put it more in line with my preference in this style.
