4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a deep orange with a medium white head. Aroma is a bit muddled and muted but there is resin lemon citrus and honey in there. Surprisingly the aroma warns of a resins bitterness to come and that is exactly what you get. Love he lasting bite of hops. Orange and pine stick around also.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2015-10-16. Hazy orange body, modest foamy beige head and light lace. 3+ Aroma is fairly alcoholic, resiny citrus oil, orange notes. Mild leafy green hop undertones. Flavour is pleasantly hoppy throughout, notes of orange, orange seed and citrus oil. Moderate hop resin and bitterness. Alcohol presence is relatively mild compared to the aroma, but is just warming enough to let you know its there. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. 3+ Pretty nice. Bottle from Aurora Brew Works, Buffalo.

Opaque gold yellow, white lasting lacing foam head. Hoppy aroma and bitter taste. Would have got higher rating if not there is some soap notes present, strange. Lasting aftertaste. (Chicago 201510)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Oracle from Bells Brewery has been gracing my cooler long enough. @jimfooch was kind enough to see my comment about loving the idea of this beer on one of his posts, and then graced a trade with a bottle of this mysterious lady. - I pull back the cap and pour the beer, the liquid is hazy, a golden peach in color, the tight, toasted-marshmallow head rising quickly, two fingers deep. The aroma is peppery, with a bright lemony-orange dominating the spice. I breathe in with the swallow, the pepper flavoring my mouth, the hops biting at my lips and the underside of my tongue. The blistering on my gums is a bit numbing and Iím enjoying the fact that although this is well balanced despite the deScription, the bittering is intense. The malt is a solid foundation, but itís a pedestal and not a partner. This is awesome; I love the tingling after each sip and the seemingly deliberate need for this damn beer to abuse the tender flesh of my mouth. - The creamy brew is heavy, sticky, thick and creamy on my tongue, the head a soft pillow on my lips. The lacing is thick and sticky, a beautiful etching around the inside of the glass.The finish is heavy, long and bitter; to the end, that pepper comes burning through in the aroma, growing more fierce by the quaff, eventually drowning the citrus. I am loving this and I know Iíll be seeing much more of this lady in my future.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden hazy. Good foamy head. Moderate carbonation. Nose is lemon, faint honey, resin. Taste is hop bitterness, malt is toast almost buried by hops which have a profile that is not that diverse. Like the intensity, drinkability, but not as balanced as some other DIPAs.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint orange peel and pencil shavings aroma. Cloudy orange, medium yellow head, nice lacing. Lemon zest, whole orange. Grapefruit peel finish. Full body, moderate carbonation, extremely bitter, resinous. Wow, the IBUs are off the chart with this one. I can tolerate quite a bit of the overhopping that has become in vogue, but I didnít enjoy this very much. Tone it down.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a murky deep golden with a luxurious white head. The head is so rich, once it recedes, literally the entire inside surface of the glass. Competing tangerine and sweet grapefruit nose. Nice and clean. Puffy mouthfeel. Alcohol is noted nearly immediately, but not before the abundance of citrus bursts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours medium orange with a one finger off white head which fades to just a little lacing. Aroma is of a lot sweet malts, caramel, booze, some citrus, some pine, and some tropical fruits. Taste is very sweet with a lot of sweet malts and caramel dominating, with some mild citrus, pine and some light booze in the finish. Overall, I wonder if I got a bad bottle, has this is a rather disappointing beer that is way too sweet and boozy.
