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).

Habanero (4521) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2012 Pours with an amber colour and with a nice off-white head. Aroma of floweris, green, earthy hops and caramel. Citrus and caramel flavour with lot of hops. Honey texture. Full bodied. The strong alcohol is just present. Long nice finish. Very enjoyable.★★★★★

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2006
Very similar to DFHs 90 minute. But, I might like this one a little more. Gorgeous coloring, very hoppy, but not quite as much malt on the backside. Still maintains a complexity of malt which some IIPAs miss. Fantastic IIPA and the best offering Ive sampled from Great Divide.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready malty tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste. This is one huge bitter hoppy bastard.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2006
A very good IIPA indeed. Excellent piney, floral, and citrus hoppy aroma. Orange copper color. Flavors of grapefruit, orange blossom, nice malts, but at the same time, so so bitter. dry finish with strong carbonation.

Amazing. Split a bottle (as Dawn recommended) and drank out of goblets (not Great Divide glasses as we asked), but think it was the right move. Compliments to our favorite C & B bartender. Beautiful head tops a copper/orange beer. Almost smells dry hopped. Effervescent, but not champagne fizzy. Well balanced, not overly bitter and alternates with a slight sweetness. Light alchol when you breathe through your nose. I still prefer the Rogue I2PA, but this is a close second!

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - APR 27, 2006
Bomber 50F Tulip Glass. Aroma is that of visting a pine, and citrus fruit orchard. I smell ruby red grapefruit, Christmas trees, and subtle carmel. Great tight light white head, with the color of orange pekoe tea in the glass. Hops, bitter hops, cirtus hops, bitting hops, my tongue is prickly with a million little needles. Orange zest, and rich malt balls are predominate. Very big taste thats lingers forever. It has a light mouthfeel, hops are very quinching, just slight stickness on the tongue. Very smooth quite drinkable. Very tight and compact head. I give a mile high salute to my friends in denver.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2009 One of my favorite double IPAs!!Great hop flavor which starts strong and finishes slightly sweet. Good thick body but not too thick. An IIPA Powerhouse!!!
