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).

GustavJ (49) - Drammen, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2017
Presentation of beer to be sold at the Norwegian Vinmonopolet. 20.sep. 2017. Bottle. Slightly hazy deep orange-coppery. High off-white, long lasting head. Appealing aromatic nose of mild grapefruit and tropical fruit. A powerful beer with excellent balance between rich piny, floral hops and a malty backbone of sweet caramel with toffee-notes. Ends with a warming feeling from high, well hidden, alcohol. A excellent classic DIPA.

Another overly malty IPA. Lacks all hop and citrus flavor. Slight booziness to this one. Had out of a bottle in myrtle beach ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tricksta_p (4928) - 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 (7546) - 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.
