look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A little lighter than a normal dipa, and is a see through honey color. Lacing is up to snuff, and hangs around for quite some time. Very bitter in the nose, but it's balanced out with a smooth sweetness and an underlying citrus aroma. It's really a testament to bells when you taste how they bring everything together. Hops are strong enough to make sure it stays bitter throughout, but the way the sweet caramel malt is blended in, all the while staying smooth in the feel is unrivaled by most any other brewer. I equate this very much to a pliny the elder, and thats high company. Very good in it's depth and drinkability. Oracle is everything and more that Bell's usually offers.
