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).

seymour (1799) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Poured from bomber bottle into a nucleated pint glass, a crystal-clear deep reddish amber colour with white foam, long-lasting with lace. Gorgeous! Aromas and flavours were good but not as glorious. Stereotypical American IPA traits: tongue-blistering bitterness, grapefruit, pine resin, dank ganja, coarse weeds. Medium body and carbonation, very boozy and not in a smooth way, lingering aftertaste of super-alpha hops. My tastes have moved away from these kick-you-in-the-face hop bombs, even so I donít know how on earth this receives a 100 rating. New Belgium Rampant Imperial IPA has way more nuanced flavours and is 1/3 the cost.

Pours clear golden/copper with a medium white head. Aroma is ripened tropical fruit and bread. Taste is ripened pineapple, mango, caramel, light citrus with a long lingering piney finish. An excellent DIPA, which is only slightly let down in the aroma department.

One of the worst beers Iíve had, may pour it out. Aroma is boozy and malty. Pours golden and had chunks precipitate from the head. Taste isnít horrible but not good either.

adamnase (293) - Kronoby, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle from Alko. Amber color with nice thick bubbling head. Aroma has grape, tropical fruits, grass and malt. Taste is bitter with nice long aftertaste. Some sweetness also in taste. Flavors of malt, citrus, fruits and also some pine in the excellent aftertaste.

LetsGoState (742) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Appearance is a hazy reddish amber. Aroma is a blend of malts and hops. Taste is a mix of hops, malts, spices, and alcohol. Too close to an overpowering Belgian for me.

smaynard6000 (877) - Apopka, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark golden color with a creamy tan head. Intense hoppy aroma of citrus and pine. Aggressively bitter hoppy flavor along the lines of the aroma. A hophead's dream. Very good.

Anticraft (10) - - AUG 6, 2015
Round, creamy, exceptional palate with a balanced body. Transparent, camboge color. Hits strongly with an acidic kick. Hints of banana cilantro (eh). Lots of flavors to be discovered: fruits, oak, mildly burnt, leathery. Superb drink that keeps your taste buds entertained.

Bottle at home. Very hoppy. Big bold nutty caramel/toffee malt backbone. Very well balanced. Lovely.
