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).

DonGregorio (439) - POLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Tap at Muted Horn, Berlin. Clear amber beer with durable white head. Aroma of resin, caramel, herbs, some tropical fruits. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter, of caramel, resin, herbs, with notes of nutes, crystallized fruits, tropical fruits. Resiny and herbal finish. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation. Overall: full of caramel, but nevertheless tasty DIPA.

tricksta_p (4744) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2017
Bottle from Flink Gegist, Delft. Aroma is resinous hops, lots of pine resin, malt, soft tropical fruits, grapefruit, citrus, orange, touch of caramel. Flavour is above moderate sweet with a very strong bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden, there’s only a hint of it. Body is medium. Loads of resinous hops and fruits in this classic boldly hopped and bitter IIPA.

AirForceHops (7295) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 6, 2017
10 oz. snifter Draft at Yard House, Fenway, Boston. Clear copper color, thin lasting head. Flavor and aroma is a complete match. Taste is backed by plenty of sweet caramel malts leading into floral notes with overly strong pine.

Medium to full bodied with a sticky texture over the tongue. Overly sticky... The alcohol presence is not hidden at all. Finishes with some warming. This is a sipper without question.

Zlotta (3406) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2017
0.355 l bottle from ’BierPost.com’, bottled in September 2016, eleven months old. Clear, very dark amber with a thin, foamy, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, malty, resiny and moderately fruity aroma of orange jam, pine, mango puree and candied apricot. Very sweet, malty, resiny and slightly fruity taste of candy sugar, orange jam, pine, candied apricot and hints of mango, followed by a medium long, quite bitter, resiny and a bit warming finish. Full body, thick and creamy, almost oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Heavy beer, very sweet but with a pleasantly bitter finish, probably not as fruity and hoppy as a fresh example.

Beachmaster (564) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 4, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2017 On draught. Pours a dark amber, with a medium white head that lasts. Good lacing. Nose is malt and hops. Taste follows. Well balanced. Good stuff.

koleminer20 (3704) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2017
12 oz bottle unfortunately shared by ebone1988. The pour is a dark amber orange color with a thin ring of off white head that leaves some soapy ish lace behind. The aroma is just not good. There is an absolute explosion of malt. Hint of pine. There is a caramel and an earthy hop. This just isn’t good at all. It’s a malty mess with a bitter something happening. The flavor is even worst. It’s like sucking on caramel pine resin. Garbage. Citrus zest, heavy malt. Hardly any hop. The bitterness comes from that. No thanks. The mouth feel is medium bodied and softly carbonated with a terrible finish. This is just hot garbage. For a beer they advertise as a nectar fit for the gods, I wouldn’t even waste this steaming pile on an enematic event. No bueno. 5 3 4 2 9

ebone1988 (1966) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20, for the book. Aroma is booze, sweet citrus, pine, sweet caramel malt, grain, unremarkable. Appearance is amber, light tan head, clear. Taste is sticky, caramel, pine, bitter, slight tropical fruit, just a totally unbalanced malt bomb, ridiculous to see this is in the 99th percentile. Total mess. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, Matt states this is "like chewing on a caramel pine cone," and I believe he aptly nailed it. Overall, this may be one of the most overrated beers I’ve ever tasted.

oobawa (1484) - 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.
