A Note on This Beer
Each Spring, a limited Double IPA is released in the Pacific Northwest that many recognize as the wisest choice for hopheads seeking citrusy, earthy, and fruity tropical flavors. Draft Mag says it even gives Pliny the Elder “a run for its money.” That DIPA is Black Raven’s 8.9% ABV Wisdom Seeker.
Your senses awaken from hibernation with aromas of freshly juiced oranges and pomelos. Wisdom Seeker starts off the season strong with a full-on citrus blast. Luscious tropical fruit flavors bound across the palate, carrying notes of passion fruit and honeydew melon from Simcoe and Amarillo Hops. Hints of bright lemon and grapefruit from Centennial and Citra Hops make way for Chinook and Nugget Hops, gliding into the finish with an earthy pine resin and peppery bitter kick.
Lauded by Thrillist as one of the best spring beer releases in Washington State, Wisdom Seeker challenges craft beer fans to find a more fitting IPA for the hoppy Spring season. Freshly bottled, this batch brings out Wisdom’s smooth, rich and complex hop flavor. The experience is so vivid, you can feel the Winter season melting away and the fresh greenery of Spring beginning to sprout as you sip.
