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 Herculesí aggressive, punchy hop profile. 85 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

Creamy head that lasts. Golden copper color. Bitter with lots of malts and hops. Slight sweet taste-maybe caramel. This a phenomenal beer!

slabonator (29) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Big 22 oz bottle. Nice deep copper color with nice head. Aroma of hops, pine, citrus and malt. Full bodied, lots of malt with caramel flavors, but hops come through strong and last. Very bitter IPA with a nice alcohol punch.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Bomber. Poured a deep, hazy, eerie orange with a light wispy whitish head. Powerful grapefruit and pine forest in the nose, with a sweet caramel backing. Equally-aggressive flavor profile, showcasing the bright citrus and piney hops, but the caramel and other sweet malts really hold it together. Bitter, fruity, and somewhat dry on the finish. Not overly complex, but extremely well-done.

Amber, slightly hazy with a moderate off white head. Aroma of grapefruit and potent hops. Sweet malt flavor with plenty of citrus, grapefruit, floral notes, and pine flavors. Very sweet yet with an excellent hop finish to cool the palate. Quite enjoyable.

Wow, packs a big punch. Tons of big piney hoppiness, not for the faint of heart. 85 IBUís? Nice. A very well crafted double IPA. Great colour, mouth feel, exactly what a hop head wants.

Canít put my finger on it. Strange aftertast I just canít describe with this one. Not bad. Pleasant and quite drinkable. Reminds me of the first time I tossed off. I enjoyed it, but I have to do it again to tell you why.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 13, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2007 Amber color with a thick and lasting white head. Fantastic citrusy hop aroma that also reveals plenty of malt backing. Iím immediately struck by the strong Grapefruit flavors in this beer. At once, itís bitter and hoppy and immediately sweet. Perfectly balanced. This one will be making regular fridge appearances.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2005
Deep amber colour, i.e. very dark for an India "Pale" Ale. The malty sweetness dominates the initial flavour but the finish is classic: Citric and very bitter. IMHO the beer is almost overbalanced.

Pours an almost orange amber that is nice and murky. The head is nice white and frothy, that slowly dissolves to a nice white combover. Nose is satisfying and piney. Palate is well balanced with a fantastic hop bitterness. Leaves a bitterness on the tongue that lasts and lasts. If youíre looking to take your hop addiction to the next level this is your ticket.

Rated @ Stockholm beer festival. Red-amber with beige head. What can you say about this beer, the IBU is a whopping 85. The experience is completely dominated by cascade and bitter hops. Palate is full and syrapy. I happen to like bitter beer...
