Hercules (10% ABV) is a Double IPA produced be Great Divide Brewing in Denver. The descriptors on the label are Mighty and Revered and this is a big beer. There is a very good hop aroma when on pours this orange beer with a two-fingered lacey head. This is a hoppy beer and the emphasis is on the hops, but there is some good malt sweetness too. Another really good one from Great Divide – Yeti is not the only really good beer they make.
Great Divide describes Hercules as, “not for the faint of heart. It is, however, fit for the gods. HERCULES delivers a huge amount of hops from start to finish. Its hefty backbone of nutty, malty sweetness balances its aggressive hop profile.” Suggested food pairings are: “Grilled fish tacos and aged Dutch cheese.”
