Thank you to Jerome1929 for hooking me up with Bell's The Oracle DIPA. He purchased a case last Friday the 4th and sold me a few bottles. I've really been looking forward to this!!!
A: Can you say Two Hearted on steroids?!? This baby is bright like a northern Michigan sun. Beautiful like a Hopslam/Two Hearted combo. The head is about 2 1/2 inches thick. Not to mention is leaves a great lacing that lingers until the last drop is gone.
S: Grapefruit, citrus, pine, not like an orange but it's really apple like. Towards the end pinnapple really comes through. This baby smells like fruit big time. Like a DIPA ready to explode.
A: Very bitter but easy drinking. This DIPA is so drinkable it's scary. Slightly different from Hopslam. It's a little bit more hoppy than Hopslam because its lack of honey. The Oracle is straight to the point. Hoppy, bitter, intense, serious, legit, etc. All of the above.
M: Medium to heavy carbonation. Medium in the motuh. Very smooth like a midwest IPA should be.
D: If you like IPA's this is one EASY drinking DIPA. I could probably drink a six pack with no problem. It drinks a lot like Two Hearted. An easy IPA to sip or chug.
Overall, The Oracle is outstanding. I'm so happy to get my hands on this DIPA before it's all sold out. Hopslam and The Oracle are the premier line up of DIPA's in the country. This is very tasty and very complex. Get your hands on this if you can but be careful...you may want to drink the whole six pack or case...whatever you may have.
