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. Hot damn. This is the best double ipa i’ve had in years. Silky smooth. Tropical, citrusy, and only slighty malty but super well balanced. 10%? Youre shitting me. Awssome

Poured from a 12oz bottle with a date of 7/10/15 Very juicy tropical with plenty of carbonation. Same brewery as hop slam. I can see the similarities. This beer has same apv, but much cheaper.

burg326 (4812) - Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Poured a yellowish color almost orange with aromas of lemons, hops, light malt, and some light sweetness. Flavors are lemon, with hops, and dankness a touch of sweetness, a solid DIPA that I could drink a few back to back of.

fidelis83 (2212) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Cloudy gold to orange pour with a two finger creamy off white head with a soapy top skim. Aroma is big on fruity, berry-like floral and citrus hops, starfruit, light nutty and cereal malt notes, hint of pale caramel, faint raspberry earthiness and just a hint of booziness and herbal hops. Flavor is loaded with tree fruity esters up front, then some caramel and grape nut malt notes, resinous pine, deep earthy blackberry and raspberry notes, dried grapefruit peel, thistle flower and a very fain medicinal note, not really enough to be overly offensive, but enough to notice. Medium to heavy body, creamy entry, giving way almost immediately to a slightly dry, boozy heat, light but blanketing and harp carbonation and somewhat astringent and chalky finish with a pretty big booziness. Really good stuff overall, but a little sloppy.

Bottle. Yellow colored pour with a white head. Smell is very hoppy, grassy, grapefruits, etc. Taste is similar, pretty strong biting hop flavor. No real alcohol noted. Good beer, easy to drink.

355 ml bottle @ hotel room, San Diego.
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, otherwise decent. Disappointing still.
