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.

(bottle - 22 oz - Night of the Titans 2013) Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Big hop and dry rye notes in the aroma with the mildest hint of chocolate. Flavor is loaded with citrus and pine laden hops that moves quickly to a very nice dry rye flavor. Dry and bitter flavor on the aftertaste. Wonderful rye flavor throughout.

22 oz. bottle, PDT 10/19/12- Pours almost black with red highlights and a huge three finger mocha colored creamy head and curtain lacework. The aroma is nice and hoppy, piney, citrusy. The taste is chocolate malts, moderately bitter hops, spicy from the rye. This is a unique black IPA, usually they just taste like a hopped up porter to me, but this is very complex, everything just blends wonderfully. Body is medium, carbonation is high. Overall this is a winner, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Tasted on tap at The Map Room in Chicago. Dark brown color with a full initial head. Nice, but faint aroma. The rye was a bit too much for my taste.

On tap at Somerset Hills Tap Room. Intense hop aroma blew me away before even tasting it. And then the perfect balance of dark malts and spicy rye surpassed my prior favorite Black IPA. Sorry Stone, your Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale has been overcome, only not sure if I can find this Firesteone brew as easily. Malts not so deep as the Stone offering, but the Rye complexity is just amazing. A new favorite in Black IPAs.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Serving: draft at Fireworks. Pours black with a lasting tan head. The nose has a bit of roasted malt and green viney hops. The flavor is hop forward with notes of mint, spruce, minerals, charcoal, and heavily roasted malt. Medium to full body. Lasting finish. Solid.

In my top 10 Black IPAs. Nice color, smell, and taste. Complex, malty and then the right hoppy feel. Will be having it again... another for my US beer buying list :-)
