Raven is a Black IPA inspired by the changing of the seasons and the cravings of heartiness that come with it. It is an excellent companion to any cool weather occasion.
It is brewed with Simcoe, Centennial, and Amarillo hops paired with a carefully considered addition of roasted malt.
Raven’s recipe and process were designed with the balance between resinous hop character and gentle roasted malt bitterness as the most important characteristic to make this beer as interesting and enjoyable as possible.
Following extended cold-conditioning, Raven pours a super dark brown to black color in the glass, leaving behind a dense and rocky head. In its aroma and taste, it conjures perceptions of citrus and pine balanced by sturdy light chocolate and roasted malt character. In spite of its relatively simple construction, it presents with a hefty amount of character and intrigue.
Raven is a beer at the heart of who we are, and what we aspire to do. It delights with its tastiness, drinkability, and hearty construct. It drinks well on its own, but it drinks particularly well with seasonally appropriate meals like smoked meat or beef stew. We expect it to age well and evolve over the next several months while being stored away in the refrigerator.
Much like Nomad and Dear Washington, Raven stokes our creative fire while allowing us to broaden our horizons and hone our skills as craftspeople in an effort to provide you with the most delightful drinking experience possible — Great all the way through the glass, time and time again.
Welcome to the family, Raven.
