Great Divide Hercules
Brewery: Great Divide Brewing Company
Style: Imperial/Double IPA
Format: 650ml Bottle
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 colour, forming substantial lace in the glass. Hercules Double IPA delivers a huge amount of piney, floral, and citrusy hop aroma and flavour from start to finish. A hefty backbone of nutty, toffee-like malt character balances Hercules' aggressive, punchy hop profile. 85 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
How an Imperial/Double IPA should taste
This beer has hopslosion written all over it (if that was a real word).
The aroma is that mix of resin and honey, but with a very light caramel undertone to balance things out.
Gets better and better the more you drink, with the 10% ABV so unassuming. You'll certainly start seeing double once you get 2/3 through the bottle (650ml).
