Folklore and mythology present the raven as an omniscient creature with special powers and abilities. The Wisdom Seeker Double IPA gets its special powers from an enormous amount of hops and malted barley. Brewed in the West coast Double IPA style, this bold brew features massive citrus and herbal hop additions and a full hop aroma. Seek your wisdom cautiously; this hop feast packs a punch.

Clear golden hued body with a white head. Aromas are of candied pineapple, orange, citrus, tamarind, dank, pine. Flavors are bitter, dry, grassy, pine forward, mild citrus rind aspects. Clean and dry. Much less malty than their single IPA. Lively carb, dry and warming finish.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copperish color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is fruity and floral with just a bit of citrus coming through, and is really inviting. Taste is moderately bitter and a bit crisp, and while intense up front, fades into a nice easy drink.

marcus (8304) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours golden with a modest off-white head and a mixed hop aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor with an excellent hop profile that balances well with the malt. Nicely done.

andrewje41 (2080) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2015
22 Oz bottle poured. Pours a golden color with a fading head. Nice hop filled aroma. Throughout the year these guys will continue to have special releases, and I think this one is probably my favorite. Not really because it’s a super fancy, different beer. Just because it tastes so good. Nice hop character. Quite refreshing. Delicious double.

Bottle pour at home, love when this beer comes around every year. Nice golden pour, bold citrus hop aroma. The flavor is smooth to start and ends with a solid bite, flavor full of pine, hopes & citrus. Really enjoy this beer.
