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.

looks black. light tan head that is big and lingers. smells of pine, iodine, and red grapes. Tastes first of roast astringency as the malts and hops hit you simultaneously. Then rye spice and alcohol heat up your mouth simultaneously. Not a whole lot of other flavors going on. What is really unique is the viscous oilly mouthfeel that makes this more toward a porter than I’m used to. Not the best bipa ever, but an intriguing take.

Clear, yet fairly deep black appearance with a foamy, brown head. Nice rye spiciness and malt roastiness in the nose along with notes of black coffee, a bit herbal, earth, light citrus, and pine. Rich dark chocolate malty, spicy rye, a bit charred flavor. The rye just dances on your tongue like Templeton Rye. Probably the best Black IPA I’ve ever had.

jsquire (3641) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2013
Dark beer with a thin beige head. Piney hop nose with some roast grains. Sharp pine and resin hop flavors with an almost smokey roasted grain taste and some dark fruit. The alcohol blooms as it warms. Long bitter finish with lots of resin and a hint of coffee.

Prufrockstar (1319) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2013
Rating while helping a friend brew a wookey clone. Tan head, dark brown, clear, bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma big on citrus, rich caramel malty, slightly chocolate base. Taste: delicious. Nice smooth malt base gives way to big pine and citrus bitterness. Medium full body, oily-to-slick texture, average to lively carb. Overall: one heck of a fine beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DSG (7457) - Tel Aviv, - 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.

HighlanderOne (1046) - 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

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.
