Quick Hit – Bell’s Oracle
I love big beers. Not big in physical size (though I do enjoy drinking a 22oz or 750ml bottle), but big like it’s a couple beers squeezed into one.
The Bell’s Oracle is a big beer. It’s a double IPA, which hints at a strong, hoppy, malty overload that promises to crush your tastebuds and your alcohol tolerance in one quick shot.
The Oracle is a great looking beer. A nice golden color with a little white head that fades away quickly. The aroma is huge! An almost apple scent surrounds a mild sweet citrus aroma.
And the taste… so nice. Since it’s a double IPA, there’s a lot in there. A mild bitter start, followed closely by a slightly syrupy maltiness. There’s an apple like tartness with an almost pineapple citrusy acidity. It finishes slightly bitter with a mild floral hoppiness.
The Bell’s Oracle is wonderful. Plain and simple. Keep an eye out for it. (It’s at RFD right now!)
