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).

Im not sure if its because I am getting over a cold or not but I could barely smell the beer. Taste however was pleasant and smooth. Strong caramel flavor, lightly sweet with a solid hoppy finish.. yum!

beer_est_deus (638) - örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2014
Dimmig, djup orange med orange skum. Doft: Humle, malt, alkohol, gräs, växtbeska, lite exotisk frukt. Smak: Humle, kola, barr, exotisk frukt, malt, alkohol. 4 1/2 kvar till bäst före, önskar att det hade varit mertill för jag tror den har mer att ge än såhär.

Lilja (1578) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, tall, citrus, mango och ananas. Rund och len, stor sötma med fin och kraftig beska med smak av grapefrukt och tallbarr. Alkoholen slår igenom en aning. Riktigt gott.

ninecats (131) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2014
Pours somewhat dizzy copper with a big slowly settling light beige head with lots of lacings. Aroma is tropically fruity, mango, overripped fruit overall, some honey and a tiny yeast tone. Taste is big and aggressive. Initially sweet and bitter on the palate, with candied sugar and a massive grape attack, tones of overriped fruit, orange, nut creme and honey, before finishing with a slight salty liquorice/salmiak tone and a looong lingering bitterness. Medium to big body, medium carbo with quite big bubbles which adds a freshness to this compact beer, oily texture. Very big and rough, yet balanced.

BiffNilsson (202) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2014
Gulorange något grumlig vätska med smutsgul medelstor krona. Fantastisk doft. Stor och kraftfull. Känns på långt avstånd. Mycket doft av övermogen ananas, tallbarr och mango. Smaken är stor. Först kommer en kraftig beska som följs upp av salmiak. Sen kommer sötma och ett bittert avslut. Detta är en öl att sippa på och avnjutas länge. De var verkligen en trevlig bekantskap.

Peter_L (687) - SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2014
Flaska från SB. Inbjudande färg och skum. Kåda, tall, karamell och citrus i doften. Mjuk och ljuvlig i den första ansatsen. Sedan kommer sötman och slutligen ett bett i humlen.

Humlehode (78) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Pours dark amber with yellowish head. Full bodied, quite malty, aroma of caramel, citrus, grapefruit. Fairly hoppy. Well balanced, but some astringent bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikeyo1 (173) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2014
bottle @ home. Pours cloudy deep amber with reddish notes. A spectacular white head, a two fingers high white compact head with a spectacular retention and hefty lacing. Looks delicious! Toffee, nuts, some caramel, pine apple and grape in the bitter-sweet aroma. In good balance but I suspect the hops has been in better shape, this bottle is a couple of moths old. Some annoying sticky alcohol becomes evident as the liquid gets warmer. Big sweet mouth feel. Taste is bitter right on, with loads of toffee and pine initially. Mid-palate has some lemon zest, mango, nuts, red berries, and caramel plus bread and a growing grapefruit character; and notable alcohol flavor. Finishes has some more nutty dryness that tries to conquer the big malt sweetness. Long lasting big bitterness in the end.

Riktigt god måste jag säga. God smak. Fin färg. Bra eftersmak och till en billig peng. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
