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 is a really (emphasis on REALLY) nice IPA. Citrusy, refreshing and very, very drinkable. I purchased only one bottle of this just to sample it and was surprised by how good it was. I will probably go and buy a few more bottles today! Anyway, really nice, tasting notes follow:
A: Coppery, rusty amber with a lite carb head
S: Citrus, big big hops!!
T: Really smooth for a big IPA, very very nice!
M: Again, smooth and sweet
O: Nothing bad to say about this brew; a really nice IPA. If you have not tried it, it should be on your list as one of the ones to taste!!!

Great Divide has some really good brews and this is a nice example of one of their really good beers...

A nice dark rusty pour with a nice thick head. Lacing was thick and lasted. Smell of citrus, especially grapefruit and floral. Flavor is lightly bitter with citrus flavor. A good brew. Especially great if you make it to Great Divide in Denver and get to enjoy it on tap. Great place!
