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.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Sweet tropical fruits and caramel on the nose, resinous hops and some mild alcohol. Lots of resinous hops on the flavor with pale malts and sweet fruits, alcohol comes through a bit too much for me, otherwise decent. Good amount of malt.

Appearance: Slightly hazy copper/dark amber; medium white head. Aroma: Citrus fruits followed by some piney hops. Taste: Arrives with a big hop kick; so West Coast with all the bitter piney, citrus fruit peels. Malty & subtlely sweet middle but finishes dry with more hops. Palate: Light and crisp; hops are tingly up front. Dry as hell at the end. Overal: A good example of the style of DIPA; easily drinkable while the alcohol is well hidden even at 10%. I wonder why this beer isnít more widely available year-round.

Bottle. Golden orange color. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, caramelised malt and tropical fruit. Taste has fresh pineapple, mild bitter pine, tropical fruit, mango and soft caramelised malt. High abv well hidden. This is great, way better than hopslam.

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

radio_nowhere (1407) - 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. Itís a simple hop bomb but does it very well.
