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).

KajII (767) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a murky medium copper orange with a large (2-3 finger) rocky cream colored head that had decent retention, finally reducing to a thin layer of residue with some excellent sheeting of sticky lacing. The aroma was of a toasted grain malt, pine and floral hops and a mildly sweet yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit / peel), toffee, caramel and a mild alcohol tinge. The taste was bitter sweet and a tad malty with a hint of toffee early on, with the taste becoming a bit hoppier and having a strong grapefruit presence and a mild citrus peel bitterness towards the end. The flavor lingered for a good while with the taste of citrus and hops settling nicely on the taste buds, meanwhile a mild alcohol warming sensation just added to the enjoyment of this tantalizing brew. Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a dry oily texture and a good lively carbonation. Overall a DIPA with a well balanced blending of flavors that created a smooth sweet bitter taste, which made this a very enjoyable and drinkable brew.

On tap at copperheads. Pours a decent golden color with hints of red. Not much smell. Minimal hops. Taste is a lot different. Hoppy as hell in the front end, dry in the back end. You can taste the high abv. Pretty decent beer but I could only have one. Def wrecks the palate.

Heavy pine aroma with citrus and a hint of floral. It is cooper-orange in the glass with a little bit of lacing. It has a strong piney taste, with rind, plenty of hops, with a bitter kick.

dlovell2 (567) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 10, 2014
Pours copper color with white head. Sweet candy caramel aroma with fruity citrus finish. Flavor starts off sweet syrupy candy caramel malt followed by fruity mango and citrus flavors finishing with a big citrus hoppiness. Another fantastic offering from Great Divide.

illiniphil (122) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2014
Pours a cloudy apricot with a minimal slight white head. Well-balanced flavor of hops, fruitiness and malt. Higher abv also is not overwhelming. A very solid, well balanced IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
