COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IBU: 37
Malts: ESB, Crystal
Hops: Summit, Amarillo


A totem is an entity that watches over and represents a clan or tribe. Totem pale represents us well with its bright citrus hop flavor. Featuring the new hop variety “Summit”, the first dwarf hop to be bred for production in the United States and currently the only hop being grown on low trellis in the Yakima Valley. With its ESB base malt and generous citrus hop additions, you too will want to make the Black Raven your totem.

Clean, clear, light-amber. A fine northwest pale ale featuring up-front citrusy-piney hops. Very similar aroma and flavor qualities to their IPA when drank side by side, the "little brother". Slightly bigger malt backbone than most pale ales, which is quite pleasing.

Clear amber color with a white sheen. Nice pine sap hoppy aroma. medium body. Pine and grapefruit hop flavors on a thin caramel malt base. Nicely bitter finish. Not too bad.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear copper with a lacy white head. Sweet citrus and pine nose. Light toffee and citrus taste with a lingering resinous finish. I have a hard time seeing the IBUs being as low as 37? Another nicely sessionable beer from Black Raven.
