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.

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 (1334) - 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).

reberiii (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Dark pour from draft to tulip glass. One finger of light tan foam. Moderate lacing. Fresh Piney hop aroma, and the scent of background rye. The beer is very rye forward, and strong hop bitter finish.

Poured into a shaker. Pours almost black with a good beigh head. Smell of hops and stout. The hops are definitely in the nose. Taste is great. Not overaly bitter somewhat like a stout

On tap at Big Hops San Antonio. Pours dark but rather clear if held up to the light. A thin head allows aromas of toasted malt and floral hops to ring through with a subtle twinge of rye. A taste of spicy rye caresses the tongue while the citrus hops sneak in to the party. In the end, a cozy bitter finish. A magically balanced arrangement of malt, rye, and hops. What we have here is one of the best beers ever made.

This is a wonderful, interesting IPA. Nice and dark color, almost looks like a porter. Super hoppy, hints of pine and somewhat oily mouthfeel. Tasty, tasty, tasty!

AndrewOD (15) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Pours a dark opaque brown with a very small wispy head. The aroma is nutty more so than other black rye IPAs that I've tried. The taste is very smooth with minimal bitterness. One of the best black IPAs that I've tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice beer. Blend of good IPA and Imperial Stout. Favorite beer in a favorite genre!

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 (5023) - 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.
