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.

pours black with a fluffy but sturdy beige head. The nose is full of Citrus and Amarillo with hints of rye malt beneath. The Taste starts with big citrus and pine. Thick "chewie" caramel and toffee malts are next. Spicy rye punches the tongue and rounds out the hops. Hints of pumpernickel, cocoa and Wookey pelt round out the end. Finishes slightly dry and peppery. This beer is very well balanced. Masterfully made. A limited edition treat you absolutely must try. Itís a great time to be a rye beer lover!

Bomber bottled 12/14/12. Beautiful, gnarly hop aroma, pine and dank wood, spicy rye and black roast, faint citrus but thankfully fresh and biting hops on the whole. Deep dark brown pour with a densely rocky, lacing tan head. Taste of delicious heavy roast, tar, light ash, not to be outdone by zinging, darting pine and spicy hops. Some alcohol, sweet at first but resolving to semi-dry, light/watery body, medium bitterness lasting into the long and hop-drenched aftertaste. Thankfully, the roast/black patent isnít punishing, and the rye porter-type malt and the hops is nothing short of masterful. Yes!

If thereís hope for Black IPAs as an emergent style, this should be their standard-bearer. Canít think of anything Iíd change here.

Very respectable rye ipa. Itís beginning to be a more common style, and itís usually done well. Wookey Jack has all the bold and spicy elements one would want in this style.

Bottle: Three fingers of creamy tan head atop a dark brown body. Sticky lacing. A sweet aroma of citrus and pine. The smell carries through to the flavor, but stronger bitters emerge. Plays nicely with the roasted malt tones. Finishes with a lingering bitter/roast 1-2 combo. I was expecting great, which this fell short of, but still very good.
