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.

One of my favorite double IPA's and pick one up every time I see it in the store.

Bronze color with nice lacing pretty clear.

biscuit, light molasses, light hops, butter, and a hint of whiskey and crisp flavor at finish.

Serving type: big bottle

Bottle Design: 8/10

4.13/5  rDev 0%

Bottle poured into a tulip glass

Bottle date Aug 8th about 2 1/2 months old - freshest I have seen in Illinois

Pours a mostly clear copper color with a decent off white head that lingers.

Smell is full of pine with malty sweetness and some citrus coming through.

Taste is piney and oily with a sweet maltyness to the finish. Hops oil bite lingers.

First time I have seen this one "new" enough to want to try. A more than solid "piney" DIPA but I think I prefer the more citrus forward ones.
