Great Divide Hercules Double IPA

Tried a new one today, Hercules Double IPA from Great Divide brewing!  Very tasty, and recommended for all you DIPA fans!

Orange and pretty clear with a pretty good head and lacing.

Aroma is clean and hoppy, piney, resinous, citrus (lemon, grapefruit, oranges), and floral.

Flavor is again quite clean for a DIPA.  Good clean bitterness, orangey citrus, lemon peel, heavy grapefruit peel, piney hops, and a surprise sweet malt balance that leaves you wanting another sip.

Body is full and slightly syrupy, not a real quick or easy drinker.  Alcohol is warming but well masked.

I’ve had a lot of IPAs of late, and I have to say this one is refreshingly different.  Quite enjoyable, but don’t expect to get out of your chair once you’re finished with the bomber!
