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. Poured a medium/deep copper color with a thin white head that was much smaller than I was expecting but that still had good lacing. Great aroma with a nice amount of pine and floral coming through, not just all hops. Good balance between the malt and hops with just the right amount of bitterness on the finish.

john44 (2680) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle. Reddish amber in colour. Very hoppy aroma. Mega, mega-hoppy taste (lots of resinous, oily, piney hops; earthy taste). Fruity (bitter grapefruit and lemon citrus). Floaties and lots of sediment. Malt base (caramel & toffee). Very bitter hoppy over nice malts. Long dry bitter hoppy finish. Nice DIPA. (2008)

lello4ever (842) - ITALY - FEB 4, 2017
Color oro piuttosto limpida, ampia schiuma bianca a grana media. Intenso aroma erbaceo, I luppoli si avvertono alla grande. La bevuta di altissimo livello, equilibrio eccezionale tra malto e dolce grazie anche al alcol di ben 10 gradi, con i luppoli belli freschi e netti. Carbonazione perfetta. Retrogusto amaro bello lungo.

Diabobale (484) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 28, 2017
Dorato carico con schiuma bianca fine non abbondante e dalla discreta tenuta. Al naso sentori vegetali e di alcol. Al palato agrumato marcato con qualche accenno resinoso. Amaro ben presente, con lieve astringenza. Corpo medio e carbonazione non spinta.

drjoeng (1046) - SINGAPORE - JAN 2, 2017
10%ABV. double IPA. Poured out amber. 12SRM. Nose is sweet with caramel and toffee aromas nice sweet candy, pulled sugar aroma. Nose bear the end has cat pee, bong water funk. Mouthfeel is full and soapy. Palate has an interesting full bodied umami almost savory taste feel to it, the briefly opening up to allow pie crusts, bread crusts, wheat toast flavors in. Hint of animal crackers. Hops are earthy, resinous, sappy, grassy finish. Finish is medium-long. Resinous, sappy, back of the tongue. Overall a big IPA that likely started with impressive grain bill where the brewmaster then felt that the hop lineup they started out with likely needed augmenting and ended up with a beer with a specific gravity that needed to be managed and then translated into a race to name the beer; Hercules being apropos, Gros being another. Goes on Favorites List!

Cimbasso (868) - - DEC 28, 2016
A deep orange-coloured beer sampled on draught at the Yardhouse at New City at Lincoln Park in Chicago. Strong aromas of malt and resinious hops and a strong white head. A powerful beer with a creamy mouthfeel, a strong sweet malt base and incredibly powerful hops with plenty of orange peel, pine resin and grapefruit in the taste. A blockbuster of an IPA. Surprisingly easy to drink considering the high ABV and the powerful flavours. An excellent Double IPA.

Silvan7 (1192) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 9, 2016
On tap @ Artigiano in Fiera 2016. Ramato, riflessi ambrato carico, con schiuma beige fine e persistente. Aroma intenso e complesso. Luppoli americani conferiscono il classico aroma di aghi di pino/resina, fruttato agrumato (scorza darancia e pompelmo). caramello, liquore e toffe sono anche avvertibili. Dolce quasi amabile limpatto, etereo, scompare sotto il peso di una luppolatura intensa con conseguente sensazione amara. Ci sono anche note di frutta secca (noce/mallo) e caramellato/tostato del malto. Calda, molto calda, corposa, spigolosa, poco carbonata. Incredibile equilibrio, decisamente armonica,

ghostbeer (173) - Nebraska, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Delicious and bursting with bright hop character. Based on the label description, I expected more noticeable malt influence, but that was lacking. Even though that was lacking, I am not bothered at all since I dont expect that to come through in a DIPA. Definitely will get again.
