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 at a bottle share. Pours a near black color. Nose is quite floral with some huge hoppy bitter elements coming through. Taste isn’t as bitter as the nose suggests, and ends up being a very smooth easy drink.

Poured a very deep brown, close to black with little head. Nice nose of welcoming hops. Strong rye presence in the mouth with a spicy palate.

Black with a beige head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is passionfruit, honey, pine, citrus. Hoppy on the palate, bitter undertones. Taste is grapefruit, pine, hint of caramel and malt. Too piney for my liking.

Sampled on tap from the Firestone Tap House. Pitch black. Smells of coffee, roasted nuts. Tastes coffee, licorice, hopey pines, citrus. Very complex. Very different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer share. Dark chocolate, licorice, citrus aroma. Insanely dry, dark chocolaty bitter taste and finish. So great.

Too much of a West Coast pine forest for my taste, but as it warms up the rye starts to come through and by the time you take your last sip you wil start "pining" for more. Extra points for the label. The British lion and the Russian bear are duking it out for supremacy during The Great Game.

(Bottle). Floral hops and pine aroma. Black complexion with tan head. Tastes of pine, grapefruit with distinct rye flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with tan frothy head. Aroma is strong of spicy hops. Taste is pretty bitter with spicy pepper notes. Finishes astringent and strong . A great black IPA and I love the rye

Why don’t I drink Black IPA’s like this more often...actually nonstop. This was so exceptional that I was sadden to see the last drop drunk. Pours dark with an offwhite head. Smells of hops and malts...almost a wet hay and citrus mix. Amazing palate. great head retention. So drinkable its ridiculous. So balanced its ridiculous. Finished dry and toasty.

QuezXLV (398) - Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
The aroma is a typical hoppy bitterness. The color is extreme dark brown with white foamy suds. There is a bit of bite in the carbonation. Somewhat dry taste which a good mix of hops and smokiness.
