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.

22 oz bomber at 43 degrees. nice aroma with hops balancing slight toasty nutty notes. Taste is very nice, strong hops balanced very well with dark malts, hints of toast, coffee, peat, and a slight smokiness that comes on after a few seconds for a very nice finish. The palate is smooth and full but not too sweet or cloying at all. Overall this is an amazing beer that everyone should try! ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Dark brown red color with a mediumsized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, pine, floral hops, and light cocoa. Taste of pine, citrus, tobacco resin, cocoa, and roast, with spicy hops and light alcohol in the finish.

Big & bold black pour w/ a big tan head that leaves a significant amount of lacing. The aroma is dominated by the hops. The taste is silky smooth upfront & finishes w/ just enough bitterness to remind u that this is an IPA. Absolutely in love w/ the creamy mouthfeel at over 8% & a large IBU. Very well done!

Bomber from lake fridge. Been there probably too long but still a great beer. Pours a black color with thin head. Hops are a little weak for an IPA but thatís the age. Rye and malts creat a great body. Very tasty.

Quite possibly the best black IPA Iíve ever had, and thatís saying something because Sublimely Selfrighteous is great in its own right.

Bottle, thanks Josh! Nice citrus aroma with unique notes of smoke and earth. Medium/light body. Unique, complex flavors of chocolate, smoke, grilled pineapple. Moderately bitter finish with clean aftertaste.

Black pour with a thick, creamy tan head. Grapefruit, roasty, slightly piney aroma. Thick, chewy, citrus up front, cocoa, toffee, and nice bitter finish. Not quite the complexity of Black Betty but beautiful mouthfeel...very, very good beer

One of the better black ipas that have been in my snifter. Pours a beautiful black color with a beautiful head. Lacing throughout the drink. Rich in citrus hop aroma, some piney notes and slight hints of toffee also on the nose. I wish the mouthfeel had a little more creaminess but still nothing to cry about. Along with the bitterness, some hints of tar and dark chocolate are on the palate, brownie like. Weird but great! Top notch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
