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

In the glass the beer has a reddish amber color with a big head. The aroma has pine, citrus and some hops. The taste doesnít have the big bitter bite but a good balance of resin, hops and some caramel malts. Mild carbonation with a long finish.

beeratarian (206) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Havenít had this beer in a while fresh but Iím guessing this one was. On tap at hienens. Pours light orange with thin, tight head. Aromas of tropical fruit and piney hops. Flavor is citrus with a bitter punch and then the alcohol kicks your buds. Finish is bitter and lasting, alcohol is definitely a big factor in the quaf ability. Descent version of a classic IIPA.

mariuspoenari (1291) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2016
33cl bottle. Dark brown-ruby pour with a thin, smooth tan head. Smells dank, with notes of citrus, pine and caramel. Bitter-sweet taste, well balanced except maybe for the alcohol that comes a little too powerful.

Nurmis (298) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2016
355ml bottle from alko. Pours orange with with slightly tanned diminishing head. Aroma is fruity, citrus, little bit of caramel. Taste is light sweetness, very bitter. Nice finish to be savoured. You can sense the alcohol content on palate, texture is really thick. Good.

dambor (360) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2016
Pours orange with beautiful, cream head, leaving a nice lacing on glass. Aroma: pine tree, herbs, citrus fruit, but also biscuit with a touch of caramel. Taste: nice pine tree with herbs coupled with citrus, followed bz a malty (but not heavy) backbone. The palate is increadibly long. The 10% ABV is not noticable at all. In fact this DIPA appears incredibly light (and thus dangerous), but has a long of complexity to offer. Simply fantastic.

gEUS (1700) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2016
bottle at home. pours dark copperish gold with a steady thin head. Immense exotic nose; pineapple, mango, tangerine peel. Overwhelmingly pine hoppy body (not too found of), pine bitters in the taste. Aftertaste of orange peel and bergamot.

kajser27 (1225) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 29, 2015
Copper colored, some really small floaters, medium creamy off white long lasting head with nice lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, bit toffee, strong floral, pine, less citrus hops, hint of alcohol. Taste is quite sweet caramel malt, bit toffee, loads of floral and pine hops some citrus, strong bitterness, dry finish and a lasting bitter grapefruity aftertaste, alcohol noticeable with some warmth. Full bodied, soft carbonation, resiny. Beautiful!

Pours a copper color with a little head. Aroma is citrus hops and caramel malts. Taste is very caramel malt upfront, which Iím not a huge fan of myself in IPAs. Then the citrus hops come through with a bitter hop finish that is what Iím looking for in a double ipa. A little boozy but not overpowering considering the ABV. Leaves an oily feel on the palate that lingers. A decent beer but fell below expectations for me. A little too much malt for my taste but definitely worth a try if your a hophead like myself.

Bottle bbe may 2016. Aroma fresh hops, cream caramel, passion fruit. Taste caramel sweetness which is overwhelmed fast with grapefruity bitterness. Long grapefruity and citrucy finish. Very bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
