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).

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, - FEB 18, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry - courtesy of him. Slightly hazy orange-amber colour with a medium sized beige head. BIG, juicy, hoppy aroma with notes of iced tea and blood orange juice. Flavour is solid as hell - bracing hops, some faint sweetness, enough woody malt to stop things from getting too out of control. Yum.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2018 Tnx to Anita. From 3 DIPAs session it was first.. and only. Super cool new experience with DIPAs. The twist of this brew is roasted malts touch in flavor, classy, balanced pine/citrus bitter flavor and.., super malty, biscuity jet not much pronounced hops aroma. So in aroma and flavor you get different things. I was amazed. Medium body; deep, sufficient bitterness. Flavor and bitterness is just wow. So if you have this beer, you don't need to buy extra cookies. And the roast touch... Mmmm...

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2018 Can from Moscow Co-op. Medium amber with a small, clingy head. Aroma comes in with some sweet malts, and taste comes in bigger, malty and bitter. Hop bite lingers for a while. Tons of caramel and toffee.

Burk från Boxbeers, 5 månader gammal. Guldfärgad, klar med vit krona. Rejält med granskott, tallbarr och kåda, citrusskal, lite kakighet, viss sötma och maltighet men också en lite udda rostad/bränd ton som drar tankarna till en stout. Finns något både i det och i beskan som gör att den smakar nästan precis som Yeti. Typisk old school rivig västkust-DIPA, men hade gärna sluppit de brända tonerna...

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2018 Perfezione, analfabetissima perfezione. Erbacea sia al naso che in bocca, colore ambrato bello carico, schiuma compatta dal profumo vagamente alcolico, ti fa presagire i suoi giustissimi 10°. Carbonazione leggera, il dolce iniziale lascia spazio ad un finale amaro piacevolmente persistente.

3.6
Nordcore (1994) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2018
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2018 Can 33 cl. Golden, hazy with a white head. Tropical fruit aroma, grapes and some floral sense. Medium bitter with a good hop end.

LazyPyro (2900) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2018
355ml can. Pours clear deep amber with a small beige head. Aroma is nutty, caramel, pine, citrus. Taste is initially very malt forward, very nutty, caramel, toffee, hops start to come through with pine, citrus fruits, grapefruit, herbal, quite a strong boozy note to it with a big bitterness on the finish. Perhaps my can is a little old, but this for me is a rating that's well under the average for what is a highly rated beer in general, a rare thing for me.

15/20 wow huge beer, pure caramel, fairly strong bitterness, doesn't hide the fact this is a strong beer

HourGlass13 (1364) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2018
Pours up a dark gold color with a nice tan foam head. Lots of booze in the aroma along with plenty of hops. Taste is lots of hops, and huge alcohol presence. Bitter burning booze finish. This is one bad mother of a beer.
