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.

Intriguing aroma, smells of citrus hops and apricot/peach. No hint of the dark malt. Dark balcony pour with low carbonation. Taste is bright and fruity followed by citrusy hops over spicyness from the rye. Lingering roast from the dark malt ties in nicely. After a few sips I am noticing oak in the aftertaste too. For an IPA I would consider this a complex one. You can pick out all the elements well and the come together very nicely. Would definitely buy again.

Near black pour with a cream head and nice lacing. Amazing hoppy aroma. Pine, fruits, grass, and spice are all there. Taste is pine up front with grapefruit and spicy rye in middle and finish. Nice bitterness and rye spiciness with subtle sweetness to compliment. Very easy to drink. Great beer.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
22 fl oz / 650mL bottle into a tulip glass. Served cool. Bottled on 25 January 2013. Aroma: BAM citrusy, bitter hops. Behind that some nice sour rye. This aroma is STRONG. Appearance: Completely opaque dark, dark brown with a thick, off white head. Supreme lacing. Taste: Sour rye backed up by an exceptionally strong hop profile. I wish I could describe this better. These flavors are big and bold. Palate: Rich, full bodied, coats and lingers. Flavors even play around a bit as they linger. Overall: Mind-blowing. Game-changer. Fantastic fantastic fantastic. Wookey Jack for President.

looks black. light tan head that is big and lingers. smells of pine, iodine, and red grapes. Tastes first of roast astringency as the malts and hops hit you simultaneously. Then rye spice and alcohol heat up your mouth simultaneously. Not a whole lot of other flavors going on. What is really unique is the viscous oilly mouthfeel that makes this more toward a porter than I’m used to. Not the best bipa ever, but an intriguing take.
