Hercules double ipa tasting notes and flavors and bouquet, Great Divide The double ipa Hercules, produce by the Great Divide brewery, is simply fabulous. It is not a simple or mainstream beer, the consistency and the impetuosity of the bitter flavors are predominant, yet in this kaleidoscope of flavors and scents, you can perceive thousand of suggestions.

Do not believe it’s a monothematic or repetitive beer. Indeed, we can find a sweet background and exalting malted tones (nuts, caramel and honey) that counteract the bitter flavors.

It’s not simply a super bitter double ipa, it’s a melody, played on a well-defined theme, but with grace and elegance, to reach peaks where only few beers dare.

Hercules is a double ipa that every enthusiast of beers should try, it is histrionic, sumptuous and funambolesque, but offers a bold and well-delineated fresco, never surrendering to imperfections.

Synthesizing: It’s one of the most exciting beers we’ve been tasting this month, but it’s not immediate. One last thing: pay attention, once you have sipped the double ipa Hercules, it sucks you and takes off in an unstoppable breeze of sensations.

And now, are you ready to
