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.

On tap at the Barrel Republic. Appearance: Opaque black-brown with a sudsy tan head that leaves streaks of lacing. Aroma: Black IPA leaning towards herbal and low hops. Flavor: Good hop/malt mix and balance. Better than the aroma suggests. Feel: Medium+ body with good carbonation. Semi-dry. O: Very good for style.

Probably my favorite beer. Pours dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Smells piney, taste matches with a nice spicy kick from the rye. Absolutely delicious.

Black pour with a tan head. Aroma of roast malts, almost smoky, the hops come off as somewhat minty. There’s enough hop flavor to get this into the black IPA range,but there is still enough roast malt bitterness that this has stout characteristics. Still an excellent beer if you don’t try to put it in a style hole.

thome50 (1018) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Tap at the Morro Bay Yacht Club. Pretty much for the last month on Wednesdays with the inlaws at hamburger night. Pours a deep black with slight tan head. Aroma is hoppy grass and slight coffee. Taste is the best black IPA I’ve had. The grassy hoppy, dank profile is there but then the dark chocolate and coffee come through.

Draft at Caliente in Pittsburgh with Devon, Don and Katie. Yes sir, a perfect score for a memorable beer. Tastes unfiltered with all the associated richness. Complex and refined.

Bomber pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Bright citrus aroma, well rounded rye, and dark malts. Nice citrus hop presence, nutty roasted malt with rye on the finish. Nice!

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Bomber from julios. Pours black with small head. Nose woody and spicy malt with piny hops. Slightly citrusy but mostly spicy rye. Some roasted malts and quite a lot of chocolate. Nice aroma. Taste spicy rye with piny hops and roasted malts. Chocolate and some coffee. Finish spicy rye with coffee and roasted malts. Persistent coffee piny notes and rye. Quite bitter. Well made and well balanced.

Draft at Malted Barley in Westerly, RI. Jet black pour, lacy light khaki head. Nose is slight chocolate and coffee, caramel, big piny hops, grapefruit essence, orange, spice,a hint of pineapple. Taste is bitter up front fading into a smooth sweetness of slightly bitter chocolate, finishes with cleansing citrus, orange peel mild lingering bitterness. Good stuff.

Bomber. Black pour with a medium head and aromas of roasty malt and some resin and herbal hops. Flavor is pretty heavy on the roast for a BIPA, but then the hops bitter and bite kicks in and things are good again. It’s not a clean and crisp hops presence, but more of a resiny bitterness. Good.
