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).

Zakoon (16) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2014
Hazy orange with white head. Black tea, pine and maybe honey. Taste is grassy, alcohol, hop bitterness, citrus. Medium body, nice carbonation and bitter finish. I miss a little more sweetness to balance it out.

DroolYeast (211) - Odder, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2014
Some pine and grass hops. Clear brown with small white head, tiny lasting. More floral hoppiness in taste than the aroma. High sweetness and moderate bitterness. Finish is bitter. Soapy dry texture. Average carbonation.

JonMoore (1846) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle - nearly clear amber with a slim white head. Aroma of pine, resin, citrus hops with some big malts in the background. Flavours are malty, hoppy, nutty, caramel. Medium to full bodied, warming alcohol in the finish along with a nice hoppy bitterness. Excellent.

Garrold (1135) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Tap at Brewdog, Sheffield. Hazy orange. Off white head. Thick, chewy, orange marmalade. Taste is thick sweetness, offset by a medicinal, grapefruit bitterness. Bitter finish builds, and lingers. Tasty gear.

Wurdahitah (22) - SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
Hazy orange. No head but nice lacing. Aroma of honey, pine, floral with tropical fruits. The taste is the same with a nice bite of bitterness and a nice malty backbone. ABV well hidden. Great stuff!

kidobutai (309) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2014
Whores amber with a little bit of happiness. Terrific lacing. you can definitely taste the higher alcohol content. Nice citrusy, definitely orange finish.

CpyNPrnT (328) - Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2014
Aroma is pine and citrus, taste is pine, citrus, lots of hop bitterness, sweet malt backbone, alcohol is somewhat present. I wish it had a higher abv (12%) and a little more malt presence, would make this a 5/5.

vandc01 (46) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2014
Poured from a bomber bottle dated on Dec 13, 2013 Aroma - constant orange peel aroma, a little piney Appearance - very clear amber/reddish color. Thick egg shell head with nice lacing Taste - very well balanced between malt and hops. Nice lingering taste. I thought it was going to be a orangey zest bomb, but it is a solid tasting beer. Palate - medium mouthfeel. Leaves a nice after taste Overall - I was worried this bottle sat too long, but it has really held up nicely.

dboltoned (3) - - APR 19, 2014 does not count
This is a great beer. Well balanced. I have just started enjoying IPAs and I have to say this is going to be a favorite. The hop flavor lingers for quite awhile after taking sips. Great for your average hop head.
