BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Great Divide Brewing Company
Colorado, United States
greatdivide.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

A-Cloudy deep orange, two finger head that leaves nice lacing.

S-Good deal of earthy hops, grass, pine and dirt with slight citrus.

T-Starts with some malt then a good deal of hops but not waves of it. Earthy notes with some bitterness.

M-Medium to lighter, not much carbonation and slightly water.

O-A decent DIPA, but in a market so saturated it doesn't stand out. But the price is a huge plus.
