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).

(on bottle) Golden orange colour, white head. Hoppy mouth; canesugar, pine. The juniper- and pineapplelike flavours are pretty dominant. Has loads of sugars too, witch makes hard to drink when not ice-cold.

Absolutely wonderfully laden with hop aroma with no warmness from the alcohol. This beer was wonderfully balanced, with its 8.5%abv it rides the line between double IPA and barleywine.

Very nice hop presence on this one. Taste is dominated by hops with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Despite this, it still is easy to drink and tastes fairly well-balanced. I enjoyed this one quite a bit.

MiP (13955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
Bottle. VERY nice hop aroma. Dark copper colour, small creamy white head. Flavour has a very nice aromatic hoppiness. Bitter aftertaste which stays on the tongue for a long time.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
Bottle. Amber colour with a off-white head. Hoppy nutty aroma and a light sweet hoppy taste. Medium to full body and a light sweet dry hoppy finish. Great!

BitterPoet (57) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2005
This should be considered textbook example of the style. One of the best beers, period, I have had from a bottle. Iron backbone, enough hops to satisfy the biggest hophead, yet backed with a solid malt firmament that keeps it from being too pointedly hoppy. Loved it.

joergen (22268) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
Bottled at DBF 2005. Orange coloured with a solid lacing head. Nice aroma with lots of fruits and hops. Nice sweet flavour with lots of fruits and hops. Nice long bitter finish. Not as bitter as North Bridge Extreme.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Pours cloudy golden color with a thick white head. Smells of rich hoppy goodness with sweet and nutty malt undertones too it, although the scent is somewhat weak for an Imperial IPA. Taste is a rich hop bitterness with a slight malt hint to it, would like a little more complexity to it. Aftertaste is kind of sour at the end but with crisp and bely warming goodness.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Botle poured copper/ amber with a thick heavy head and sticky lacing. Heavy hop aroma. Flavor is hops, citris with a strong alcohol kick on the palate. GOOD BEER!

This is the first Great Divide beer I have tried since they just became available in Georgia. I was very impressed with the flavor, aroma and appearance of this very hoppy brew. Nice work guys!
