Great Divide Brewing Company
Colorado, United States
greatdivide.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

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.

Bottle to tulip. Pours a deep copper color with a small creamy looking head on top. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, toffee, a small hint of grassy hops. Flavor follows with mostly caramel malts, very sweet, and very little btiterness. Not much citrus like I like from my IPAs. Slick and sweet mouthfeel, low to medium carbonation. Overall I just don't get this one. Maybe I got an old bottle.
