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.

A balanced malt and spice nose. Taste features roasted malt, some mildly fruity hops, rye spiciness and some grassiness. Complex, refreshing but rich at the same time.

scoth (465) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours dark brown, black in the glass with a medium tan head, good retention, very fine lasting lacing. Aromas of pine resin, grass, toast, earth, rye. Medium-full, round body, dry, velvety. Mild malt sweetness -- just enough, then a medium-strong bitter lingering finish with some woody, cocoa notes. A stellar hoppy brew.

Picked up a growler of this flavorful brew at Growler Nation in Eugene OR. One of the best beers I have ever tasted. Will probably come back for more.

A cheese maker meets a bread baker and they hug it out in this excellent black rye IPA. I want to hang out in this neighborhood on a regular basis. I get campazolo and brie on a fresh baked rye sourdough batard so warm it still melts the cheese. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brune aux reflets rougeâtres, sa mousse est dense et persistante. Une dentelle baveuse s’accroche au verre. Un nez de résine de pin et de grains difficilement identifiable, ça pourrait bien être du seigle, qui aurait été grillés. Par moment, un aspect épicé et particulièrement par l’anis. Un goût pas des plus amers, tout en l’étant quand même. Une acidité palpable traverse l’alcool réconfortant. Embouteillée le 26 avril 2013 (998-310114)

This is the best dark beer I have ever tasted. So many dark beers look complex and inviting, but their simple and thin taste disappoints an experienced beer drinker. Wookie Jack Black Rye IPA stays flavorful and complex through the entire pint. Try on tap at Bilbo Baggins Pub in Alexandria, VA. I’ve been drinking beer legally for 33 years and I know an outstanding beer when I taste one.

Poured dark brown almost black with a tan head. Citrus aroma with some smoky malt aromas on backside. Roasted malt flavors with some dark chocolate flavors and some smokiness. Followed by big citrus flavor and ending with some rye spiciness. Really nice black IPA.
