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. Easy poor ¼ inch yellow/white/tan head. Good carbonation. Color is a very hazy golden orange. Almost looks like the glow you see in the movies when they open the brief case.
S. Fruity, monster hops, orange, little pine.
T. Hops, alcohol, orange, pine, pear, oak, nutty, honey. The hops are very over powering, this is awesome.
M. Thick, gritty, dry, delicious.
O. One of the top 5 Double IPA’s I’ve ever had. The alcohol is in your chest, but in a good way. Good ass buzz for only 10% ABV.
