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.

APPEARANCE - Mostly opaque orange with a 1-finger head that lasts. A bit of lacing.

AROMA/SCENT - Sweet, malty, fruity

TASTE - Hoppy, bitter, herbaceous, not sweet at all. Bitterness lasts. ABV well-hidden.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - A bit of carbonation

VALUE - The bar told beer menus it's 16 oz. Not true. It's 12 oz.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Very quaffable, maybe chuggable.
