This is the first time that I have had this that I can remember.
Hercules Double IPA has a rich strong hop flavor with good malt backbone. I am not a big fan of IPA or Double IPA for the matter, but this beer is very good for the style. Many Double IPAs have either too much maltiness over powering the hops or the hops slap you in the face with too little malt flavor. This beer strikes a good balance.
