COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppier, maltier and with more alcohol than a standard IPA, Hercules Double IPA definitely is not for the faint of heart. Hercules Double IPA is, however, an elixir fit for the gods. A brash but creamy wonder, Hercules pours a deep orange-coppery color, forming substantial lace in the glass. Hercules Double IPA delivers a huge amount of piney, floral, and citrusy hop aroma and flavor from start to finish. A hefty backbone of nutty, toffee-like malt character balances Hercules’ aggressive, punchy hop profile. 85 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

jamaty (1160) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Anaranjada, con apenas espuma. Aroma fuertemente lupulado cítrico y piña, y a caramelo y malta. Poderosa en boca, tono alcoholico general y baja carbonatación, y sabor inicialmente malteado que pronto evoluciona a fuerte lupulo floral y de naranja muy muy amarga.

mtu71 (268) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle. Huge ivory head, nice lace. Clear deep amber. Fruity and malty aroma. Strong taste with plenty of bready malts and citric hops. Not so resfreshing but filling. Very dry palate and long bitter aftertaste.

Kauge (658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 24 Nov 2015. Near clear orange body with lots of bits floating around. The head’s creamy white and retains nicely, leaving dense lacing. On the nose it’s warming, resiny, marmalady, even jammy, citrusy (oranges, tangerines). Taste, well, not much babytalk upfront - it’s straight hop madness. Resin and grapefruit (seed) bitterness. It’s quite untamed I’d say - the bitterness is very pronounced and I wouldn’t exactly say the malt backbone is ’hefty’, but there is some soothing marmalady and biscuity sweetness that kinda coats the palate. It finishes - apart from damn bitter - also a bit alcoholic, let’s say hintingly. Oily slick in the mouth, pretty active carbonation, body mediumish. Overall? Not as impressive as I’d hoped for. Pretty rough I’d say. Though luckily it kinda mellows (or my palate ’numbens’) down the stretch.

Pours clear amber with strong head. Nose has citrus, raisins and grass. A harmonious balance of bitterness and sweetness.

Bottle 35,5 CL. Pours copper with small white creamy lacing head. Yumm. Malty hoppy blend of goodness. Notes of toffee, citrus, grass, some alcohol, nuts, fruits. Pretty good stuff. Slightly too bitter at start tho.
