Wait, am I drinking a Sierra Nevada Torpedo? Hercules definitely reminds me of something very familiar, naturally another DIPA. Therefore it joins the ranks of top quality brews. Can I get kicked off Ratebeer for plagiarism? I’m on my seventh full pour review of the day and rapidly losing it. It’s not plagiarism if I cite my source, so hat’s off to a Mr. rodbeermunch over on BA. "Good orange pour on this one, 3/5" off white head. Aroma drops them old school hops and a big wave of alcohol.
Taste hits the high 90ibu bitter notes, lots of hefty malt here, crystal malt, english pale malt, two row it seems. Lots of grapefruit. Straddles barleywine territory for sure. Bitterness is definitely the first and last thing you grasp on this one. Not as boozy as it smells.
Enjoyable but you better be ready for the big bitter time. Don’t come here looking for any of your fruity melon and citrus hops." I concur, but as a lifelong carpenter I’m unclear about the 3/5". Three-fifths of an inch? I need a drink... L_Lovecraft (609) - - FEB 22, 2017
Malty, floral, notes of tropical, deep golden with a good and persistant white head, medium body, medium carbonaton, very intense floral notes...extremely pleasant.
