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.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 14, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Black-colored with a beige to light brown head. Nice hoppy aroma with tropical fruits, citrus and a bit of pine. Hoppy flavor, piney and a bit fruity, with some roastiness and a pleasant bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Very nice and easy-drinking.

This is quite a tasty black IPA.

HighlanderOne (1024) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2013
Poured from big bottle. Rye malt and hops in aroma. Dark mahogany - almost porter color with hearty tan lacing head. Citrusy and piney hops, rye and creamy malt share the lead in flavor. Just a slight note of alcohol. Also notes of licorice and cocoa. Outstanding.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 Bottle share thanks to charule. Dark pour with a nice white head. Aroma is so amazing. So many hops of citrus in the aroma. The taste of this beer is perfectly balanced. Effervescence tingles the tongue/lips. Very delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2013
Pours a nice dark colorwitha fizzy off-white head. Aroma is citrus hoppy no real roasted aroma. Flavor is medium sweet with a nice citrus/piney hoppiness flavor. Finish is mild but medium sweet a little alcoholic. Carbonation is above average and mouthfeel is fizzy. Overall this is a delicious beer.

Crash_the_dog (162) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - APR 10, 2013
Jet black with a rich creamy white head, this beauty slaps you across the face with hoppy rye flavor. It offers a velvety mouthfeel coupled with a lightly spicy nose, and begs to be slammed, in spite of an ABV that requires moderation. I know that "black rye IPA" is a made-up style, but Wookie Jack is perfection within that made-up style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic, lightly to moderately astringent. Quite simple in the nose...tons of raw hops, but at least there is enough malt character to keep it from being utterly one-dimensional. In the mouth it’s surprisingly sour, and add to that the abrasive bitterness and astringency, and it’s hard to drink much. Pretty crude and rough, but there are certainly worse examples in this genre.

Bottle pours opaque black with big light tan head and serious lace. Aromas of wet hops, citrus, pine, sweet malts, toasted grain and rye. Medium body, wet hop character lingers. generous bitterness balanced with the rye spice. Finishes lightly sweet big hop character and rye tartness.
