DIPA's from 2009 will not have many remaining hops. Get a fresher one!!

I haven't had the newest batch of Hercules, but it's usually damn good.

Ugh. Very disappointed in this beer. I love an IIPA, but there is ZERO hop aroma in this one, it smells like I've stuck my head in my LHBS bucket of 2-Row (I would love smell any other time, but I really didn't expect it in an IIPA)

It just doesn't seem balanced well. Bah humbug.

This seems to be the thoughts of most people I talk to regarding GDBC's IPA's. I don't really get it. Most of their other beers are very "nosey", if that makes sense. But their IPA's are weak like the Ukraine.

Hercules double IPA is a gem, great big full bodied and well rounded IPA. Woody, malty, sweet, hop bomb of a beer. Seriously hercules status.

With that said, I always get chunks in the bottle as some have mentioned, I wish they changed that...they must dry hop because I agree it is more hop particles than yeast.
