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 black, tan head. Strange smell. Like dirty feet. Wife says blueberries or plum jam. Itís like fruity feet. Taste is cardboard, roasted malt and booooze. What a disappointment. If this is as good as the style gets, no wonder Iím not crazy about it. Way too boozy. Hoppy roasty boozy. No thanks.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2014
From a 0.65l bottle @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Clear deep dark brown in the glass with her a red hue and a small islandy and sidesticking beige top. Really minty aromas, traces of chocolate, licorice and the hops cut nicely through it all, but that mint almost reminds me a bit of toothpaste! Lovely smooth in the mouth, as smooth as they come really, and it has a soft comfortable carbonation level. Some sweetness like the one found in brown sugar, licorice, itís light herbal in a way and well hopped! Ends light warming with a dry tongue and a roasted aftertaste. Smooth! 04.05.2013

A solid black IPA. Prefer a little more malt backbone in mine otherwise what's the purpose of them, just my opinion. Prefer my rye to have that sharpness to it that distinguishes it as a rye. This brew had neither the rye I prefer, frankly if it wasn't for "rye" in the name I wouldn't know it was supposed to be in there, nor the malt backbone usually present in the black ipa's. This is still a good beer without labels however not what it is billed as. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlimHabib (123) - California, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle pour. Dark brown with a creamy light brown head. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Smooth but slightly creamy palate. Strong espresso taste that has a lingering aftertaste. A well made beer but not my preferred style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown color with off-white head. Floral notes, some citrus, and some spice on the nose; follows onto the palate.

NeoHippie2 (938) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Dark brown almost black pour with a light tan head. Aromas of roasted malts with citrus and floral hops. Flavor is dry upfront with lots of citrus/floral hop notes balanced by a nice roasty malt backbone. Very well balanced. This makes me rethink Black IPAs altogether. Solid brew.

Like watching a lion fighting a bear, the only winner is you. Like both beasts, this B.R.I.P.A. is bold, roaring with flavour and not for the faint of heart to tackle. I would even add the moniker "Imperial" to the title of this heavyweight but then itíd be absolute madness to rhyme itís name off. A full/medium hulk whose colour has seen itís share of midnights, topped off with a big frothy tan head and a chewy yet carbonated muscle tone. Taste and smells of peppery rye spice, leather, burnt wood, caramel, dark toasted bread, molasses and cocoa. The rye really kicks this up a notch, not that it needed it. Light background floral and citrus hops keep this potent pugilist from being to malt-aggressive. Lovely jubbly.

DialSquare (2541) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bomber smuggled back from Vegas by Lynn (thanks!): Blackish pour. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, nutty, roasty. Tastes are herbal, minty, crisp, dark malt, light bitter, toasty, wood, spice, even. 7.6
