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.

As soon as the top was popped, the hop aroma exploded into the air. It pours as black as night wit a rich tan head that dissipates into lacings. The flavor is rich comes mix of malt with traces of chocolate, toast and smoke. The finish is hoppy with a great malt support. There's a subtle tar and molasses linger at the end. A nice complex beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle at home from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.60):
Quite a strong tasting beer that hit the spot with a good combination of pine & tropical fruits early on that was balanced out well thanks to the darker malts & some sweetness. Despite the strength, the beer was quite an easy one to drink & I worked my way through it quicker than I probably should have; an excellent beer & one Iíll be on the look out for again.

Bottle shared with timber and wazzy. Surprisingly lacks in aroma - but then again itís like minus fifty outside. Love the taste, hoppy, malt, bread. Always good

From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Outstanding mix of hop and malt aroma that carries through to rich taste on the palate. Brings together the best of both worlds like a good black&tan. Another beer Iím glad to see available in QLD!

Reid (2092) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 9, 2015
22 oz bomber purchased from Grocery Outlet of all places. $5.39 Pours a very thick hazy darker brown with a large thick and frothy tan head. Spicy rye and malt aromas..seems like citrus and floral hopping very strong, off course darker roast coffee from the malts..very nice. Taste is darker malts, dark dried fruit and espresso coffee some candy and rye spice and the hops take a back seat but they are there. The mouthfeel is just very nice and thick but with enough carbonation to move it..no alcohol tasted. A good beer but i am sure this is past its best being at GC.

Superb. Almost black with lacing tan head. Citrus aromas... big malt roast flavours, with a sharp citrus hop backbone... slightly spicy. Dry bitter finish. Has the most amazing mouthfeel Iíve had from a Black IPA, almost like a stout, really thick and oily. Best BIPA Iíve had to date.

jgb9348 (5124) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Rich dark brown coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall tan head that fades relatively fast. Aroma of super pungent and resinous hop notes of pine, grapefruit, citrus and a nice pleasant sweet honey smell as well. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep rich malty flavour with a good grassy and herbal flavour at first and a pungent hop character showing some nice sweetness and a very fragrant flavour at the end as well - complex and super balanced. Aftertaste shows a touch of the alcohol warmth, but after that, a great hop character with a touch of the rye grain noticeable, but just a roasty flavour that shows well against the pungent hops. Overall, a very interesting, well-balanced and rich beer that shows very well in the category and overall - great to try, especially on draught/growler and especially for a nice price. I sampled this beer on draught in a thirty-two ounce growler for US$8,99 from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 05-July-2015 sampled a day later at home in Washington.
