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).

22 oz. bottle. Poured a rich copper color; cascading with a medium tan head. Smelled of wonderful rich hops, pine and grapefruit. The flavor was strong citrus and hops initially, with a sweet rich malt backbone and then some hops again on the finish. Wonderfully complex on the palate, this beer is almost refreshing even with the high alcohol content. Not quite as good as their Yeti Stout, but Great Divide has certainly made another one up at the top of its category.

Luvystypotables (635) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Unpleasant sour malt aroma, cloudy caramel colour without much head. Taste of hops, malt slightly sugary with an almost watery feel and slightly bitter malt finish.

Flaska. Frisk lite pepprig fruktig doft. Smaken balanserad o tydlig. Det känns att det mycket humle i ölen. Mycket trevlig o god efterbeska. Något spritig i smaken för att den skall trilla över 4 i betyg

Mep3222 (481) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Dank hoppy aroma with piney resin and even some weed aroma in there. Good. Taste is very malty but balanced by the hops. Hops are primarily the piney resinous hops. Bitter finish and almost dry, as dry as can get with 10% and malty. Well made double ipa, but not the flavor profile I prefer in an ipa. And a bit dank. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 8/23/14. Beer from Moore Liquor. The aroma has slightly nutty Carmel & hops. The taste has good malt backbone & hop forward flavor. Overall a very nice DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Easy drinking DIPA! No bitter end. Sweet and syrupy. I can down the bottle no problem. But can't walk after...oh boy! Curses.? A bit watery on the back end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beer_est_deus (646) - 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 (1585) - 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 (140) - 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 (212) - 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.
