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.

From notes, Pours a darkened amber orange with an ecru head that builds up slowly after the initial pour - quite pretty to watch. Aroma is mostly pine and citrus hop notes but there’s a big caramel malt tone backing things up. Maybe, touches of bubblegum and sugar cane. Starts sweet and finishes with bitter hops and candy caramel. Good lingering hop aftertaste. Mouthfeel is smooth and a bit sticky. Booze is hidden quite well. This is pretty close to ASA territory, definitely not a West Coast-style DIPA. Good stuff.
