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.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 Draft pint poured @RFD in Washington, DC. First choice from their menu tonight and glad I made that call. Everything a black ale should be; drinkable and leaving you wanting another.

Poured from a growler fill at Mainbrew. I’m not really an IPA guy, but I had to try this. Pours black with a big creamy tan head. Lots of lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet and citrus. Flavors are sweet but the 60 IBUs bring a strong bitterness that hangs on into the long finish.

Into a pint glass from a bomber from Costco at G’s bday party. Pours solid black with a small tan head. Very complex aroma with typical IPA (citrus, hops) mixed with roasted nuts, malt, chocolate, and a hint of rye. Tastes like it smells but very smooth and more like a stout than an IPA even though it still has the hops in the finish. Doesn’t have the strong rye taste of a Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye but this beer is great! If you ever think you want a Guinness, or a stout on a winter’s night...reach for this one instead.

Btl. Pours opaque, pitch black with a dense, creamy head that lingers forever, leaving huge deposits of lacing on glass. Aromas of toasted malt,dates,prunes,molasses,hint of chocolate with citrus and piney hops. Taste is sweet roasted malt, chocolate , pine and citrus with a nice spicey(rye) twang at the finish leaving my tongue tingling. FULL bodied, smooth, creamy texture within outstanding carbonation and balanced hop bitterness. This beer is very complex, lots of flavors, that exponentially get bigger as the beer warms up. One would never know this was a big beer as the flavors hide the alcohol nicely.Definitely one of the best black IPA’s I have tasted. Thx to Jason’s wife for picking this up.

Sample at 2013 GABF Black body with a slight mocha colored head. Massive tropical aroma with chocolate and roast. Taste continues with a nice blend of chocolate and roast with the tropical notes. Becomes more bitter toward the back end. Medium body with medium carbonation.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2013 Bomber poured into tulip. Opaque brown/black with a tan head that dissipates quickly but leaves sticky coating down the height of the glass. Bubbles race up the glass. Citrus hops, roasted malt, some floral aromas. Taste was lightly sweet with a mild bitter finish. Flavors follow the nose with the rye coming through with some other spicy notes. Active carbonation, medium body, long finish.

beer-yum (1368) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 19, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2014 Enjoyably different flavour profile that effectively deals with the ’same old same old’. A deserved benchmark/trendsetter of the style (Rye BIPA).
