Great Divide Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

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.

This imperial IPA has a big alcohol bite, lots of sweetness and citrus, and a huge malt backbone. It's delicious.

I would marry this beer if my wife would let me. Its rich deep dark golden color houses its hoppiness well, and it's sweet but not too sweet, malty but not too malty, and with a whopping 10%ABV what's not to like! Some nights during my visit to Denver I was even up for two of 'em. Outstanding folks at the Brewery and I will not visit Denver again without I go (sic) to visit them again!

My favorite DIPA by a country mile. Superb mouthfeel, dark/amber color. Hoppy but not overpowering as evidenced by the 85 IBU rating. 10% IBV has a nice kick.

Near perfection.
