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.

Bottle from work. Relatively dark. Floral, perfumey, crisp, leafy cabbage, sweet, peppery, grapes, melons, rose petal, rubber. Incredible peppery jammy/molasses bubble gum aroma. Everything, basically. This is one damn fine BIPA.

Gonzin (87) - ARGENTINA - SEP 21, 2015
Probada tirada en Broadway Dive, Upper West Side, Manhattan. Toño oscuro, casi negro con espuma marrón. Su sabor es un intermedio entre una IPA y una stout. Curioso, original y muy agradable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2015
On tap at Beavertown rainbow 2015. Black beer lasting tan head. Lots of chocolate. Some dryness. It’s not overly hoppy. I mean it’s more a hoppy stout than an ipa. Some blackberry juice. Dry finish. Decent . Tarry and dry.

Appearance: Bottled 29/6-2015. Very dark brown, some tan head.
Aroma: Liquorice, roasted. Also hops, interesting.

C’est toujours un événement lorsque je m’apprête à déguster une bière de cette brasserie Californienne! Je ne saurais en expliquer la raison, mais ces bouteilles m’excitent au plus haut point. Il faut dire que les 3 que j’ai dégustées jusqu’à présent ont toutes été d’immenses coup de coeur! Celle-ci ne fait nullement exception à la règle. La bière est noire comme la nuit la plus noire, à l’exception de sa mousse d’un blanc cassé, généreuse, onctueuse et collante au verre. Le plaisir que j’éprouve en faisant danser le liquide dans mon verre et de regarder les dentelles se former et se transformer...Nez intense de fleurs, de fruits tropicaux et d’agrumes. Les vapeurs qui montent à mes narines regroupes les caractéristiques d’une multitude de traits de différentes IPA et chacun de ces traits est parfaitement clair et juste. Je passe des prés au litchi, au citron, à la mangue, à la clémentine... C’est prodigieusement complexe et agréable! En bouche le liquide est tout aussi flamboyant: la base maltée et torréfiée sert de fondation solide à ces saveurs de fruits, d’alcool de seigle et de bois. Le liquide est plutôt mince et bien serré dont est sans doute responsables le séjour en barriques. Jamais je n’ai dégusté une black IPA qui m’en offrait autant: je passe sans arrêt de la IIPA blonde east coast fruitée à une bière noire granuleuse, torréfiée aux notes de café. To Sam (brewer at FW brewery), I am more than honoured to met you that day at 3 Fonteinen brewery! We also shared a bottle of Lou Pepe Framboise at Cantillon a week later. I salute you while enjoying your beer in this very moment! Cheers!

cmacklin (516) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2015
12fl.oz. bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown almost black with a large, frothy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Citrus hop aroma with rye, pine and a hint of roasted malt. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, roasted malt, dark chocolate and pine with a dry, bitter, spicy rye finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Excellent. A world class Black IPA.

The Jack series kills it. 12 oz bottle, toasty and hoppy with light rye. Black with tan head. Hops and roast are perfectly balanced.

Totally dark appearance with a large beige head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts is offset by resinous, herbal hops. Rye and other coarse grains sway the earthy labyrinthine of flavors, from tree bark to chicory. Moderate bitterness compliments the malt profile. An especially intriguing aftertaste. Full bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel leads to a long lasting finish. My favorite India Black Ale to date.

Wombata (567) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle from Dissmores Grocery. Aroma: Pine, cedar/white pepper, white grapefruit and white grapefruit rind, dried apricot, and some roasted coffee beneath the massive hop aroma. Flavor: Starts like the aroma: Pine, cedar/white pepper, white grapefruit and white grapefruit rind. Then shifts into dark chocolate. Finishes with lingering chocolate and coffee, bitter white grapefruit rind, and spicy and grassy hop resins. Comment: No excessive burnt grain or coffee flavor. The contrasting chocolate and grapefruit, pine and grassy hop flavors are potentially discordant, but here the contrast works and is complex. They really pulled this one off!
