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 pours quite hazy with a nice foamy ring and wonderful clumps floating around, especially since I swirled the bottom of the bottle and dumped it in.

Smell is quite floral sweet hoppy hoppy hoppy. A bit lemony too.

Taste is very rich. Lemon, pine, malt, sweetness and quite a bit of hop bitterness, pine hop and more. Mostly pine.

Mouthfeel is rather creamy. thick and syrupey.

Finish is quite bitter, but clean too, leaving no aftertaste.

this is quite a brew. I recommend looking it up and giving it a try. If you see a bottle, and like IPAs, you CANNOT pass this up, at least to experience it. If you are not an IPA fan, and looking for something interesting, this is a good choice.
