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.

22 oz. bottle served in a snifter at a tasting at Chris’ place. Pours black with a tall, tan head that fades slowly to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, there are big piney, citric grapefruity hops along with roasted coffee and hints of chocolate, oak and tea. The flavour is well balanced between the bitter hops from the nose and toasty malts. The finish is long and subtle hops. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a great black IPA. It has a beautiful west coast hop aroma combined with subtle roasty earthy malts. Very well done. 2012-12-01

Black pour, thick, lasting tan head, fantastic floral hop aroma. Taste is primarily hop bitterness but with some underlying, mild malt and rye complexity. Finish is pretty bitter and lingering. It’s ok, a bit heavy on the bitterness, and there are IPAs with more interesting hop profiles. The rye tends to accentuate the bitterness. Not one I need to try again.

Bomber. Great stinky deeply spicy aroma and substantial manure notes. Very dark brown, creamy tan head. Sharp peppery initial / then the hops come streaming in and a slight metallic notes emerges / finish is well balanced and medium mild. Medium body. Very tasty, and the aroma is even better. Alc. is well disguised. Love it.

Very black color. White! head is thick and holds. The aroma is hoppy, citrus, and danky. The beer tastes.like a good IPA or double le therefore... you may as well ignore the color. It laces beautifully. It tastes as good as the best double golden.copper IPA you’re gonna drink tonight. So.. have 2, enjoy the balance, and carry on........

Bottle pours a dark brown brew with a lasting tan head. Scent is pine, rye and citrus. Taste is pine, caramel, citrus with a nice rye bitter finish. Great!

Best black IPA I've had. Perfect roasted malt hop balance. The hops are just citrus enough to nail the balance. Killer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
