Bell's The Oracle

This 10.0% ABV Double India Pale Ale is a seasonal release from Bell's Brewery of Comstock, Michigan.

The beer pours deep apricot, burnt orange, and amber in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy head of off-white. The aroma is fruity, jammy, apricot and peach, subdued tropical, orange and tangerine. The taste follows the aromas, big, round, somewhat sweet fruits, a solid malt base, and a blisteringly, astringently, massively bitter finish. Holy puckering mouths, great flavors, but the most bitter finish on a DIPA I have ever encountered. The beer drinks smooth and round, with a relatively full body.
