Black Raven Beaktweaker Lg Picmonkey




Black Raven Brewing Co.

Redmond, WA

Style: IPA

Alcohol: 6.5%

IBUs: 77

Serving style: Draft, 22-0z bottles

Availability: Seasonal, WA and the NW


Appearance:   “Medium-gold body, topped by a half-inch of white head.”

Aroma:   “There’s some malt there, but a hoppy citrus presence dominates.”

Taste:   “This citrus is the main taste component, but there is a subtler presence of sweet malt, too. I don’t know what hops are involved in this beer, but some of that citrus aspect comes across like orange peel or orange zest and I like that.”

Food Affinity:   “You couldn’t go wrong pouring this with something like simply grilled chicken drumsticks or thighs. Here’s a bit of weird inspiration—how about sipping it while enjoying some ginger snaps after dinner?”
