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).

oobawa (1658) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2017
Brutally massive hop monster, big on resinous, clingy bitterness, bigger on sweet, nutty caramel malts to offset all those powerful IBUs. Orange and apricot mix with deep veins of honey-biscuit and pine, with an earthy undertone leading to a lasting hop-fueled finish. Only grows more alluring as it warms, bringing out even greater malt complexity backed by extreme pinecone vitriol. Aroma seems a tiny bit lacking for such a giant hop-bomb, but the pour’s gorgeous, a glowing orange-red with ample head and endless lacing. Good texture as well, sparkly with a slight hint of boozy warmth. Classic DIPA.

Mooie ronde, volle smaak. Lange afdronk; is ook niet raar met het hoge ABV. Niet al te bitter maar compleet en in balans. Ga ik zeker weer drinken.

zoucrew102 (2048) - - JUN 16, 2017
Can. Pine resiny hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, tropical fruit and toffee malt. Pours clear caramel colored with a large tan head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with toffee malt and tropical fruit flavors with grapefruit acidity in the background. Finishes very dry and quite bitter with the grapefruit coming to the forefront with bitter pine resiny hops at the end. Pretty nice, but the ending is very bitter.

MelvinKalksma (1684) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, pine, bread, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid amber/orange beer with a slight/medium off-white/beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Not that much flavour for its abv to be honest. Especially the aroma is too soft to give it a high mark. Great appearance and palate though.

If you like hops and pine, this is the beer for you. If you don’t, stay away! This is a beer for those who love IPAs and strong hoppy beers. Reviewed - A Brew With You, Ep. 79

superspak (5883) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2017
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/19/2017. Pours crystal clear medium orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, pear, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, pear, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind/spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, pear, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a great DIPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, despite the aggressively bitter/drying finish. Great juicy hop complexity with a sizable malt backbone that is never overly sweet/heavy feeling. A very enjoyable offering.
