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).

Wait, am I drinking a Sierra Nevada Torpedo? Hercules definitely reminds me of something very familiar, naturally another DIPA. Therefore it joins the ranks of top quality brews. Can I get kicked off Ratebeer for plagiarism? Im on my seventh full pour review of the day and rapidly losing it. Its not plagiarism if I cite my source, so hats off to a Mr. rodbeermunch over on BA. "Good orange pour on this one, 3/5" off white head. Aroma drops them old school hops and a big wave of alcohol. Taste hits the high 90ibu bitter notes, lots of hefty malt here, crystal malt, english pale malt, two row it seems. Lots of grapefruit. Straddles barleywine territory for sure. Bitterness is definitely the first and last thing you grasp on this one. Not as boozy as it smells. Enjoyable but you better be ready for the big bitter time. Dont come here looking for any of your fruity melon and citrus hops." I concur, but as a lifelong carpenter Im unclear about the 3/5". Three-fifths of an inch? I need a drink...

john44 (2928) - 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 (879) - 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.

drjoeng (1057) - 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!
