“Beer makes you feel the way you ought to feel without beer.” - Henry Lawson
This week we take on the stalwart West Coast IPA from Great Divide: The Hercules Double IPA.
In education we talk about testing a beer's DNA.
Brews in the News:
GREAT DIVIDE BREWING HERCULES DOUBLE IPA
Official 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).
