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).

Bottle pour cherry orange. Low head with hoppy nose. Wish I chilled it longer... bitter after. Why am I getting a malty alcoholy flavor? I expected more

This beer was given a lot of love but it just not for me. The abv is strongest in the smell. I get sweetness, barley, hops, bitterness. I donít get much citrus at all and the bitterness lingers long after you finish the sip. The body is heavy with dry medium carbonation.

CPH2200 (309) - DENMARK - JAN 23, 2015
33 cl bottle 10% abv. honey golden amber colour. discrete aroma. This is a heavy ipa. Sweet and barley wineíish. funny notes of bacon? or burned something. A bit disappointing consider its heavy abv.

dhatton (73) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours a reddish-copper body with a hearty white head. Nose has strong floral and herbaceous notes. Thereís also a distinct resinous pine aroma that radiates from the glass. Hoppy punch in the mouth with some oak characteristics present. You know the alcohol is there, but it doesnít come across overtly. Dry bittersweet finish. Great double IPA.

Big, amber, bloody metallic bitterness and ridiculously heavy malt body. Too much for me, personally.

Bottle sample at a tasting on a yacht at the Herzliya Marina. Thanks kerenmk. Pours orange to yellow hazy with a nice head, aroma of caramel, honey, marmalade, flavor is bitter, with marmalade and tangerine, medium bodied.

Saeglopur (484) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 25, 2014
355 ml bottle at Man in the Moon, Stockholm.
Dark amber to copper, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, white head.
Delicious, complex aroma of citrus, stone fruits, berries, tropical fruits, vanilla, caramel.
Taste is also amazing, with about the same aromas and adds pine and even more smooth malt notes of vanilla, nuts, biscuit.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, zesty, piney, with some sweet malts.

Amazing! Very very smooth, the ABV is completely hidden. The hops are very fruity, with lovely stone fruits and berries and the malt backbone is one of the smoothest and most distinctive Iíve experienced in an IPA so far! I imagine this to age very well. One of the very best IPAs Iíve ever had!

annunz123 (890) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Pine, citrus, and flowers in the aroma. Strong bitter flavor, with pine and fruit, and a nice underlying caramel malt. Bitter finish with some alcohol. Really good.

joejames (233) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours cloudy amber orange, one finger head, suspended lees, lots of lacing and good retention. Aroma of dark caramel, grapefruit and flowers. Taste is mostly bitter on top of a lot a sweetness from the malt bill. Full bodied, low carbonation, thick creamy mouth feel. Finishes bitter with notes of yeast, tropical fruits, candied sugar, resin and aromatic bitters. This could be an old bottle which may or may not be bad. This beer is pretty damn good!

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.
