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.

fraternie (988) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Impressive for its light weight on the palate combined with its dark malt flavors, which add smokey notes and glide along with finesse. Subtle dark fruit is dominated by smooth malt flavors of burnt caramel and chocolate. Medium hop notes through the long, balanced finish.

Bamsen78 (4926) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
Draught @ Fire Works, Arlington, VA. Pours cloudy nearly pitch black with small tan head. Clear, undisturbed aroma of hops with subtle citric notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with perfect citric additions. A fantastic bitter aftertaste with hints of citrus. Simply the perfect Black IPA.

kermis (9985) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Draft sample at Freshcraft. Pours near black with a small beige head. Aroma of grass, roast, citrus, burnt toast, caramel and toffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter.

MrHangover (3861) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2013
Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a very dark brown, almost black beer with a big beige head on top. Aroma is great, perfect combination of a West Coast IPA and a robust stout. Big chocolate citrus hops on the aroma, some molasses and licorice in there as well. Flavour is bittersweet with touches of coffee and chocolate. Very well balanced, long sweet bitter finish. Great brew.

From bomber. Pours dark with cream head. Crisp citrus aroma. Slight cocoa taste up front, followed by citrusy and slightly bitter aftertaste. Aftertaste lasts quite a while. This is OK, but nothing to write home about (post review, yes... write home, no). Could be that I am just not a big Black Rye IPA fan.

I cloned 5 gallons of this and came pretty darn close to it. Even after drinking all of it, the rye is hard for me to become accustomed to. Spicy Rye is the main bang in this beer so it is hit or miss for you. Its nice occasionally.

Going solo on this bomber. Bottled 9/9, so just under a month old. Warmed to 50 degrees and poured into #properglassware #likeaboss #hashtag. Aroma is surprising. Lots of evergreen mixed with lavender, tangerine, and booze. Appearance is stylistically spot-on for a dark IPA. Dark brown/black body that isn’t opaque, but is close enough if you’re looking from a few feet. White-khaki head leaves beautiful lacing in my Firestone snifter. Taste is the moneymaker for this beer. First wave is all hop; citrus, pine, grapefruit, grass. Second wave is where the malts and spicy rye take over; chocolate, mild roast coffee, light toffee, and a spicy finish. After a few sips I realize this is actually a pretty juicy, citrusy hop profile, and am amazed that the brewers could integrate that so seemlessly with the malt character. Palate is heavier than expected for an IPA, but what I’d expect for a black IPA. I really like the juicy palate and taste I first experience, and how that is replaced by a drier, roastier finish. I really like this beer. I wish they sold it in 4 packs.

strongpieman (1647) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bomber. Solid black beer with a tall foamy tan head. Strong rye aroma, rich, full body, bitter finish. All around excellent.

Great brew. Glad I bought a few of these, strong hoppy and once warmed a little, some of the rye spicynes and roasty flavours. This is my type of beer!

IndianaRed (3681) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 1, 2013
22oz Bottle, pours a deep dark brown black with some highlights on the edges. Sturdy light tan head, maintaining a blanket across the top. Very big fresh hop aroma, mainly straight IPAish, very little darkness or roast here, yet. Flavor is mildly roasted but just enough to push it past IPA. The lingering bitterness is a bit odd.
