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).

Sask89 (530) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - JAN 3, 2014
Pours a deep hazy amber colour with a small creamy tan head. Aroma of slight pine, strong citrus fruits scents (grapefruit, apricot), and caramel undertones. Taste is not overly sweet, bitterness is a little more pronounced but fairly nicely balanced. Full body, smooth creamy mouth feel, good carbonation. Overall a strong IPA, and very good brew.

Piney, citrusy and minimally floral, hoppy aroma, hints of lemon, orange, a touch of chamomile, caramel malty background with an almond and toffee touch. Taste is sweet, caramel malty and bitter, citrusy and piney hoppy, hints of lemon, orange, floral overtones, some almond, a touch of toffee; full body, smooth, soft, silky palate, lingering bitter hoppy finish.

labeerinthum (1162) - Milano, ITALY - JAN 20, 2018
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso viene catturato da luppolo e lievito. L'intensità olfattiva è molto elevata e la continuità olfattiva è apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma resiste abbastanza. La grandezza delle bollicine è a grana media. La carbonazione è bassa. Il liquido è di consistenza limpida. Bollicine fini costituiscono la forma del perlage e salgono verso l'alto con velocità di ascesa morbida. Il colore è ambrato. Il corpo è strutturato. La struttura è di spessore. L'amaro è carico. L'intensità gustativa è elevata. La costanza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali sfociano in un finale luppolato. Il finale è amarognolo. Il retrogusto è intenso. Al gusto vengono donati toni di miele, frutta secca, luppolo, resina, fiori, agrumi, pompelmo, arancia e alcol invadente.

hauxe (1024) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2018
Pours dark bronze from the bottle. Aroma is a citrus, pine, and caramel mix. Taste is bittersweet up front, full of white bread and toffee, but turns rapidly bitter. Bitter to acrid at the finish. Despite the bitterness the strong malty backbone is never quite overwhelmed and the sweet hints of caramel remain as a consistent undertone. Body is rich and full. The alcohol stays hidden. A potent and bitter brew. While I’m generally not much of a hops head, the malts just manage to keep this one in balance for me.

dorain (714) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2018
Vom Fass im Stone Brewing Berlin 2018-01 getrunken. Für mich ein perfektes Imperial IPA denn dieses Ale ist sehr harmonisch gebraut. Hopfen und Citrusfrucht passen sich dem gut eingebunden hohen Alkoholgehalt gut an. Lecker!

orbit (343) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 What a masterpiece of IPA this is, these guys just went for broke on this one and it worked, my me! Perhaps the main reason it isn't my maximal score is because it lacks some personality in its final touch, but everything is perfect setting up the taste agenda. Deeply advised to any hophead.

3.6
Pustelnik1 (76) - Nieuwegein, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2017
Lekki cytrus, trochę nut chlebowych, tropików i kwiatowego aromatu. Jest naprawdę gęstę, sporo ciała. W smaku natarcie cytrusów i ostrej goryczki, dalej trochę słodyczy i karmelu.
