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).

Pours with a slight head very dark gold color, canít look through. Good hoppy aroma. Good sweet taste followed by the pop of hops.

Lore (1986) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 25, 2016
Clear amber colour, huge creamy and long lasting yellowish-beige-ish head; aroma of pine resin, orange peel oils, celery, grapefruit, minimal biscuit notes and hints of sauerkraut; taste of a typical perfect IIPA: tons of resiny hops, some citruses and tropical fruits (mango?) as well as malty sweetness; lovely beer

Gentle_Ben (39) - Rutland, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2016
A little underwhelmed to be honest. A heavily floral nose which was pleasant. The body is thin and hides the alcohol relatively well, but to taste the excessive hops give a bitter and icing sugar type bite but there is no malt in the body to counterbalance. Finish is long on the bitterness. A basic hop bomb and nothing really to rave about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vells (1404) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - JUN 20, 2016
Very mild for IMP IPA and 10 ABV. Decent smooth maltiness, vanilla aspect, citrus, pineapple, light pine. Bitter all the way with light hint of sweetness. Lovely but not remarkable

Pint glass from tap. Pine and pineapple aroma. Golden, thin white foam, good lacing. Sour pine, citrus pith, super bitter finish. Drinks like a 7%.

ciocanelu (997) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 10, 2016
Amber color with off-white head. Aroma has really resiny and earthy hops with a solid malt backbone. Taste starts malty and bitter at first but in the middle I get a really weird, stale flavor and it lingers for a while. Medium body and carbonation. I donít know if I got a bad bottle but the stale/stinky flavor kind of ruins it for me.

12oz bottle. Hazy Amber gold color with an off white head. Resin hops aroma. Resin grapefruit up front with a strong hops finish. Heavy oily body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dal9000 (470) - Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2016
At Howells and Hood in Chicago. In a snifter. Malty hop up front with a lingering long hop finish. The hop taste changes from concentrated orangey to a mild pine finish. Not for the weak of heart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

ianwelby (1019) - SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Hazy, dark amber beer with a smooth, off-white head and a sharp, aroma of hoppy grapefruit. Taste is grapefruity as well, though thereís a bit of a citrus blend in there. Itís not all bitter and hoppy though. Thereís a good, grounded maltiness there too and an airy, floral feel to the backtaste. Really good.
