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).

Hmmm, so much going on here it’s hard to put a label on it. The initial contact with the tongue blasts you in the face. Hops at the forefront but the taste always ends in the caramel, malty aftertaste. Hop hater be warned, this definitely is "not for the faint of heart" as the brewer says. A very sweet IPA but also intense with lots of malts, citrus hops and a nice alcohol burn.

Tap at Yard House. Medium amber, slight haze. Nice head. Fairly intense citrus and other fruit, floral aroma. Light toasty malts, nice balance, hop heaven. Nice strong bitter finish, not overwhelming. Refreshing. Delicious.

Bottle as a birthday gift from Pix. Cheers! Pours amber with a nice big frothy cream head. Nice hoppy aroma with pineapple especially. The taste is big as bitter with stacks resinous pine, caramel and toffee. A little aniseed too. Delicious.

Man it’s been a historic day in the history of beer. This one is a notch below the other two we’ve sampled, but it’s awfully good on its own merits. The only knock is the extraordinarily bitter finish.

Clear deep Amber with an minimal tan head. Bubblegum, honey, light resin. Slightly bitter, good amount of sweetness. Alcohol is quite upfront, long oily finish. Great.

A bit spicy, some piney. Mouth has plenty of bitter and some odd sweet. This bottle must have been a tad too old. Regardless, I would drink again, but not seek out.
