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.

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.

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 (3743) - 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.

22oz bottle shared by madBeerBaron. Chalky black-brown body. Lacy beige head. Big, rich, full bodied..but not overbearing. Minty gingerbread. chocolate, caramel molasses. All you could want in a Rye Black IPA. Sweet and sugary.

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
Black pour with a thick brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and earthy, citrusy hops. Creamy mouthfeel,soft carbonation. The spicy rye comes through along with other roasted malt characteristics and a lingering citrus bitterness. Great finish.
