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).

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.

The aroma is very hoppy, piney, and malty. The appearance is a deep amber with a nice foamy head. The flavor is bitter as it should be with pine and caramel malt. The palate is good as is this beer.

22oz. bottle. From the colour to the aroma, the flavor to the finish, this beer screams citrus. Pink grapefruit is the dominant fruit with even a hint of lemon on the nose. The beer was a bit on the dry side, with the malt a little too weak to balance out all the aromatic hops. The overwhelming bitterness on the finish prevents this from being a beer for session drinking.

Pours light orange with a foamy tan head. Aroma of grapefruit, bread dough, citrus, and toffee. Taste is citric, resinous grapefruit juice with notes of fruity rum. Mellow spicy alcohol in the
finish. Mouthfeel is heavy bodied and resinous with medium carbonation. Enjoyable, but nothing to set it apart from every other IIPA hop bomb. If I want hops, I’d rather have an Oskar Blues Gordon or Two Hearted Ale.

Strong citrus/hops/malt aroma; great copper-brown translucent appearance. Strong flavor catches you off-guard at first, but the strong hops is matched with a slight sweet tinge. Smooth, wet palate. High Alcohol % gives it an additional kick. Overall, superb IPA.

HogTownHarry (7077) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - FEB 7, 2006
Bottle (650ml). Shared with GregClow, my bottle. Poured cloudy orange with a small foamy off-white head. Aroma is full-on orange/grapefruit resiny hops with sweet malt backing - juicy, lightly sour, some funky hops in there too. Taste starts orange juice-sweet malt, then the hops begin to build - ripe grapefruit, then grapefruit pith - there’s some woodiness, it’s not really that harshly bitter, but this is really all about the hops (mostly west coast, with some UK-style funkiness in there). Mouthfeel is lightly lively, astringent, decent body - very nice, not all that sophisticated, but a good hop monster.

Oh sweet golden cup.
Lemons and grapefuits blossom on the pine trees.
Drinking from the thin steam.
Citrus reeminds me to mow the lawn.

MikeMac (185) - Wyandotte, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2006
22oz Bottle, Pours a transperent amber orange with a frothy off white head. Nice lacing as well. Aroma was filled with grapefruit and citrus with a little pine in there. Flavor was packed with grapefruit citrus followed by a buttery malt backbone. Hop bitterness in the finish. Easily Acessible Great brew Indeed

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2006 Pours an amber/orange color with a thick white head. Strong grapefruit aroma. Distinctive citrus flavor with a hoppy aftertaste. The flavor sticks in your mouth for awhile. A very good double IPA
