3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bright golden color with a diminishing white head. Aroma contains pine, oranges, grapefeuit. The flavor is bitter but well balanced. Iím getting a ton of oranges and grapefruit. This is a big beer but hides alcohol well. Overall nice stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Heavy pineapple in the aroma, mango, peach with pine hops showing through in the background. Dark yellow/bronze with a long lasting bright white head. Has way more balance than the description suggests. Starts with honey tropical fruit sweetness, then an onslaught of sharp hops. Aftertaste is dank and earthy. Slight alcohol presence. Highly carbonated but not watery. This is almost as good as Hopslam.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bellís Oracle Double IPA doesnít have quite the complexity or polish of some of the best extreme IPAís... such as RuinTen or The Waldos... but I have to go to that level to find something to compare this beer to. Make no mistake, The Oracle is really outstanding. It pours hazy orange without much foam, the aroma is some sweet notes, honey and candied pineapple, and big, boozy, strong hops. The flavor is dense and strong and very bitter. Sledgehammer pine and citrus hops atop some caramel and a little vapor that belays the 10% ABV. Very heavy mouthfeel. This is big boy beer, and I love it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of citrus, sweetness, and malt. Even smells a little boozy once warms up. Taste is a huge- piney, bitter, and malt heavy. This is a pretty boozy beer once it warms. The bitterness lingers. Heavy, thick mouthfeel. Like Ruinten but maltier. A real sipper. To much for me. WBA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This starts out with a slight sweetness and the mild bitterness fills your mouth. Not really an impressive tasting IPA, but the fact that it covers the 10% so well is more so.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Gorgeous golden blonde color, citrus, hoppy smell and the taste...the best IPA I have ever had! Better than Pliny, Stone....the citrus, hoppy, bitter, malty rich flavor with that heavy ABV really blends perfect. The hoppy/sweet blend increases after the swallow, itís a beer like I have never had before.

Bright hazy gold color with small white head and messy oily lacing. Aroma is piney and resinous with slight tropical hop notes. Flavor is very piney with bitter grapefruit. Definite hop bomb. Light alcohol presence. Thick, bitter grassy finish. Very good overall.
