Crystal Bell’s

I foresee much enjoyment from The Oracle

Anyone who follows my blog knows that I consider Bell’s HopSlam to be one of the world’s best beers. And the acclaimed brewery has done it again, with another superb DIPA that I had at WOB recently.

Bell’s The Oracle DIPA (Bell’s Brewery; Kalamazoo, MI; Imperial India Pale Ale; ABV: 10.0) is a real gem. This honey colored ale has abundant notes of citrusy and piny hops balanced by caramel malt and honey with a crisp clean finish. The Oracle is very well balanced, and despite having an alcohol content similar to HopSlam, this DIPA is more subdued. It actually has the feel of a session beer, and the silky smoothness of The Oracle makes it an absolute pleasure to drink.

I predict that you’ll absolutely love The Oracle.
