COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wookey Jack is our first foray into the dark outer world of black IPAs. Rich dark malts and spicy rye careen into bold citrus laden hops creating a new dimension in IPA flavor. This brew has been left unfiltered and unfined to retain all of its texture and character. At 60 IBUs, Wookey Jack is gnarly on the outside yet complex and refined on the inside.

One bomber, pours dark and thick like a stout... damn close to a stout with a creamy thick head. The rye is a nice touch. Enjoyed this a lot.

Dark brown, almost black with a pale tan head. Intense hoppy, piney aroma with some floral notes. Malty flavor with a slight hint of chocolate. Pleasantly bitter, but 80 IBU, really? Feels lower than that.

Welley_Alves (220) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 28, 2014
Ótima black Rye IPA da Firestone. Cor preto opaca, formação de espuma bege, persistente. Aroma cítrico, resinoso, com notas de torrefação evidente. Na boca, bom corpo, com amargor predominante, notas resinosas, grapefruit, em perfeito equilíbrio com a torta do malte, sem harsh ou adstringência alguma. Final seco, retrogosto amargo e persistente. Excelente breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"60 ibus is hard to beleive, and I was not the only one to think so. Huge hop aroma, pine, citrus, spicy as all get out...medium brown pour. the dark malts are understated here, which is both good and bad. awesome hop profile, like union jack and double jack. while i admit i was hoping for a little more "blackness" this was a really enjoyable black ipa that leaned more towards the ipa part, and a double at that. definitely will be buying more of this while it’s good and fresh! 6/12- torn between 4.3 & 4.2 no longer... The dark roast is coming out nicely with some time... 7/12 Growler at Whole Foods - super nice!"

12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a decent size tan head. Nice malt flavors with the rye and the hops cutting the sweetness. Full bodied and chewy mouth feel. Nice bitterness at the end. Well done.

Good hoppy aroma. Pours thick dark brown with a foamy tan head. Smooth flavor, not as bitter as the aroma suggests.

Gerbeer (1807) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown/black with moderate slightly tan head that settles quickly. Aromas of pine, plum skins, soap, and chocolate-y malts. Flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate almonds, and sharp resiny/piney hops. Oily, bitter pine finish. Black IPAs rule...

Dark brown with a bubbly head. Citrusy, bit floral nose with lots of rich toasty and chocolatey character. Smooth, smokey, chocolate, mellow bitterness, sweet and danky, with toasty, complex refined and delicious.

On tap at Zante in Palos Hills, served in a snifter. Nice and dark, with a couple fingers of tan head. Smells sweet, has a thick, rich taste, could not tell it was 8.3%. I went to this bar to watch a football game, and this beer stole the show. Would drink this on a regular basis, and will look for it whenever I’m out beer shopping.
