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).

Off tap into a tulip glass. One finger of head on a dark copper body. It has a strong smell of orange and lemon, which it nice. The taste is solid bitterness and a little sour orange. Bold and in your face. The mouthfeel is normal moderate carbonation and medium body. Overall a nice drink and I liked the orange scent and flavor that came through.

This ones a no brainer for me. Itís a perfect Double IPA in my opinion. I loved it just from pouring it. Looks amazing. Dark amber with a pillowy head. Aroma isnít what I expected. It has a really nice malty sweet aroma with really floral hops. Taste is just awesome. Massive bitterness right at the front of the tongue followed by sweet tropical fruit. Tons of citrus and earthiness as well. This isnít just a run of the mill DIPA. This one is a real punch in the face in a great way. You can taste how much work went into making a beer of this quality. Really awesome stuff, a must try for sure.

Hopmaestro (194) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
Aroma is sweet hoppy caramels and the taste have a round, malty body with a resinous oil sensation. The standard notes of peach and tropical fruits is here, and there is hops doing their job, even if they are a bit tired from the trip overseas. Double the malts, double the hops, double the ABV. Whatís to dislike?

Rating #1023, flaske fra Toft Vin. Ravfarvet, flot skum. ∆ble, pśrer og blommer i duften. Karamel og let alkohol. Smag af karamel, smÝr, blommer, bitterhumle, let frugter. Alkohol og god bitterhed i eftersmagen. Dejlig tyk og cremet. OK.

kerenmk (2564) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting on a yacht at the Herzliya Marina. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for the delivery! Hazy orange with white head. Rich fruity aroma, a little cherry and cheesecake too. Bitter, a little leafy, with hints of sweetness in the mouth. Medium body, long, bitter finish. A little old.

HomerBeerOdysy (39) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2014
APPEARANCE - Mostly opaque orange with a 1-finger head that lasts. A bit of lacing. AROMA/SCENT - Sweet, malty, fruity TASTE - Hoppy, bitter, herbaceous, not sweet at all. Bitterness lasts. ABV well-hidden. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - A bit of carbonation VALUE - The bar told beer menus itís 16 oz. Not true. Itís 12 oz. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Very quaffable, maybe chuggable.

Bottle from SB. Pours almost no head. Malty aroma with a hint of citrus. Taste is also a lot of malt, caramel and alcohol. Good, but not my favourite Imperial IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2014 Poured from the bottle into the pint glass, looks a majestic glowing orange. The strength of this beer lies in itís ability to taste like an IPA but pack the punch of a double or triple. I canít believe they made a 10% that can be finished in 4-5 drinks per glass. Wonderful.

mensch (259) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Big, malty and bitter. Kinda chunky. Missing the punchy hop aroma I was looking for in a DIPA. Really more of a barley-wine to me. Iíll age a bottle for some more oldish flavors. Hop flavor/bitter profile is quite complex. Delish! Sip, sip sip, canít stop.
