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).

Oh sweet heavenly goodness.. I have a love for India pale ales that cannot be matched by any other beers, this being one of the top of the list. Aroma is unmatched, taste is not too hoppy that you cannot enjoy it, and the best part is that it is big enough that two or three you will be feeling so good your fears and transgressions will be easily forgotten. If you love hops then grab one of these and enjoy the ride.

Aroma is nice: orange, lemon, grapefruit, grasses. Appearance: dark yellow orange. Above avg. White head. Taste: lots of pine. Offensive. Grass, hops. Fruit in the aroma is blocked by the overly strong grassy/woody character. Lively carbonation. Ok. An unfortunate product of the IPA craze.

A decent brew. A light citrus/spruce scent is detected. Very heavy malt flavor with an extra healthy dose of hops. A nice dry finish after each sip. I would recommend this for someone to try at least once.

loco_gallego (212) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Orange, très légèrement trouble. Mousse blanc cassé relativement persistante. Gros lacings. Aromatique sur l’houblon pin et agrumes-citron. Maltage bien présent caramel. Alcool accompagne bien. En bouche bonne balance sucré-amertume. Longueur convenable. . Bon corps. Fin légèrement alcoolique sans sensation de chaleur, fruitée sur l’ananas je dirais. Bonne IPA, mais l’aromatique de l’houblonnage plus tellement présente je pense...

Niall73 (2113) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle at home while visiting Florida. Pours Amber with an off white head. Caramel trop fruit aroma. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Pine, caramel, boozy heat, grapefruit, lemon... Too sticky sweet and a bit too boozy for me. A little harsh. It's OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
