COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the West Coast-style Double India Pale Ale, The Oracle places hop intensity first & foremost, making only the slightest concession to malt & balance. The fireworks start with the floral aromatic punch of two separate dry-hop sessions with Amarillo and NZ Pacific Jade. Resinous, citrusy hop flavors mixed with aggressive bitterness from a massive kettle addition deliver on that aromatic promise.

scotchzombie (533) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Hazy orange Amber. Sweetly floral hop aroma. Juicy, hot, balanced. Caramel and pine bitterness that lingers. More bitter than sweet for this DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nsanders (1002) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2016

radio_nowhere (1395) - Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle into tulip glass, cloudy ambery-golden color with light tan head. Aroma notes of pine, grapefruit, orange and caramel malt. Taste adds intense pine/grapefruity bitterness, citrus, somewhat grassy/herbal, and faint spice. Heavy-medium body, moderate carbonation, very dry, rich with long lingering pine/citrus finish. It’s a simple hop bomb but does it very well.

thegreenrooster (4001) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Pour is a hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is honeydew melon with some sweet earthy malt. Flavor is pine, earthy malt, melon fruitiness and there is a slight sweetness but not as huge as I thought it would be. There is also a very noticable alcohol which gets bigger as the beer warms. This is a solid old school DIPA. A little malt heavy with some west coast pine/grapefruit hops.

Dorkenstein (424) - - AUG 19, 2016
Aromas of mango, pineapple, grapefruit juice, and pine resin. Taste is sweet mangoes, pineapple, sweet dough; then it shifts to bitter grapefruit peel and pine tar.

Shag (2839) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Bright golden color with a diminishing white head. Aroma contains pine, oranges, grapefeuit. The flavor is bitter but well balanced. I’m getting a ton of oranges and grapefruit. This is a big beer but hides alcohol well. Overall nice stuff.
