Excellent DIPA! Hoppy, bitter, balanced, and semi-dry. Pours a murky golden orange color. The thin white head sticks to the glass and runs down it. Aromas of stone fruit, citrus, and flowers. Flavors follow a similar line up. Get your hands on this one.

smell is 50/50 mix of citrus hops and darker fruits...quite nice! wow...hoppy...very much so....bitter, but in a way that isn’t as offending as other IPAs..weird..smooths out the more you drink...as they all do..I can see why people love this...but not really my style...

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a white head. Taste citrus, pine, malty. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

Bottle. Crisp orangey amber brown. Bright citrus nose. A slight sweetness pairs with bright floral hop notes and hop bitterness. Like Hopslam’s bigger brother.

At a tasting, thanks Tom C, small stable bubbly head, a little hazy lightish orange colour, aroma of spice and orange marmalade, strong flavour of orange marmalade and orange peel, with a hint of spice strong and a bit coarse bitterness. One dimensional, much too old.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014
Location: Bottle shared by jcos, 9/25/14
Aroma: It has a nose of citrus/grapefruit and resin hops, with some floral notes as well.
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-gold color with a small white head.
Flavor: The flavor is quite nicely bitter, with enough sweetness for some balance.
Palate: The body is medium, it has a good, somewhat sticky mouthfeel, and a fairly dry finish.
This is an excellent beer. Really quite enjoyed drinking. Another outstanding offering from Bells, which came as no shock to me. Thanks again for the share Kramer!

Thanks again to my cousin for this show-closer. Oracle is a super intense hoppy brew. It was a little too much for me, but I respect it, and it would definitely please a hop fanatic.
