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.

Pours a dark, cola-brown, with big, chewy head. Aroma is full of citrus, nice and dank. Flavor is very citrusy, with some coffee, some roasted grain, a touch of licorice even. This is a gooooooood beer.

radio_nowhere (1395) - Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle into snifter glass, opaque black color with dark tan head. Aroma notes of pine/citrus hops, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and a tad spice. Taste adds dark chocolate, light roast coffee, caramel, more rye spiciness and grapefruity hop bitterness. Medium body, moderate-low carbonation, rich, creamy, dry with lingering roasty citrus/pine finish. Excellent balanced black IPA.

reebtogi (5684) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2016
650ml bottle pours almost black in color with a generous light tan head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus with some light roasted grains and spicy notes. Taste is a spicy, roasted grain and citrus hop bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a very good representation of the style and recommended. A nice balance of flavors and body.

Batavi (353) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2016
Geproefd bij Vinotake Waalwijk, tijdens IPA/Sour proeverij, uitgeschonken in een Struise BD proefglas. Schenkt gitzwart uit, met een medium hoge beige schuimkraag. Veel hop in het aroma, geroosterde mout, koffie, specerijen, roggebrood, met fruitige accenten van sinaasappel, mandarijn, perzik en mango. Volle en fruitige Black IPA, met frisse fruitige tonen van wilde perzik en mango, gecombineerd met iets kruidige tonen van rogge. Medium Carbonatie en een licht geroosterde smaak in de afdronk. Een van de betere Black IPA bieren, eerste bier van Firestone Walker, geweldig lekker, mooi in balans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedSox2004 (1673) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Deep dark brown, just this side of black, with a two-finger frothy mocha head that lasted forever and left excellent lace. Earthy hop aromas highlighted by the rye, with hints of citrus, pine, roast and spice. Smooth hop bitterness up front with a rich roasted malt backbone, infused with rye and subtle pine. Medium to full body, gentle effervescence, creamy mouthfeel and a clean finish.

Bottle at a friends house during a party. So much hoppy goodness. The malts were very toasty and roasty. But still hoppy and bitter. Good stuff.

Linnet (1673) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2016
Smokey, ashy, lots of coffee, spicy, grass, floral, alcohol, grapefruit and pine. Black colour, medium tan head, good amount of lacing. Noticably sweet, big bite, salty, peaty, ABV well integrated, extremely complex and layer upon layer in the taste. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, bitter, salty and lightly peaty finish. World class!

Taste is great with nice medium body, bitter chocolatey roast, dark toasted grainy spice, melon, citrus and grassy pine. Finishes with nice strong but balanced bitterness, bubblegum, melon, orange, pine, chocolate cake, roast. Great beer.
