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).

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Very hoppy IIPA with a nice citrusy aroma and flavor. Malt in the finish balances it out. Excellent.

Mycket karmaliserad sötma och maltighet i aromen. Fin kropp och bra fyllighet.

wihlan (349) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
Flaska på bishops - väldigt maltig doft. Djupt bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Mycket sötma från malten och en trevlig beska. Silkeslen känsla i munnen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fkoolen (390) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle at home. Red/amber colour, slim white foamy head. Tropical fruity hops, quite strong on bitterness and sweet malts, alcohol is (too) big too. Light bodied, medium carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Bit of a let down.

Orange, lightly hazy. Light to no white head. Piney, citrusy, intense hop aromas. Biscuity, syrupy.

c1raider (17) - New York, USA - JAN 25, 2015
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 don’t 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 wine’ish. 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. There’s 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 doesn’t 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.
