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.

AshtonMcCobb (5151) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2013
50cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - opaque black with a big crema head. Nose - herbaceous, grassy and citrus (grapefruit). No chocolate. Taste - grapefruit pith, herbs chocolate in the background. Lime marmalade. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a very dry zingy finish. Overall - I prefer my black IPAs to be a bit chocolatey as well as haveing the citrus. This is one for the hop-heads. Good though.

Bottle. Pours deep blackish/brown with a nice tight mocha head. Aroma is citrus, pine, spice, roasted malt and some earthy notes. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, bitter hops, pine, roasted malt and little spice in the finish. Medium bodied with decent carbonation that is well balanced. One of my favorite IPAís in this style.

Dark dark brown pour with khaki head. Very citrusy aroma. Spicy from rye. Medium roasty. Flavor is also spicy. Citrusy, but a little vegetal from the hops. Medium dry finish. ---Rated via iPhone

660ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours dark brown with good tan head, nice lacing. Big grapefruit aromas, some caramel malt. Big bitterness on the taste, but doesnít linger. Medium bodied, and finishes very clean and crisp. Very nice.

Nocturne (1769) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
On tap at The Collins, Seattle. Almost black with some ruby showing. Nice lacing too. Aroma is skewed towards roasted malt, so the hop assault that follows in the mouth is a pleasant change. A base of sticky, dark, chewy molasses is the base for waves of hop bitterness. If thereís a rye factor itís hard to pick up, but Iím not worried about that when itís as tasty as this. Excellent.

deaconmike (468) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bomber. Pours walut with ruby edges and a tan head. Aroma is citrus hops, roast and caramel. Taste follows the nose and is roasty, and a touch nutty with a grapefruit hop bitter finish. Itís moderately sweet transitioning to a bitter finish. The body is north of medium and has a foaminess to it. Overall, a smooth drinking brew - nicely balanced and well done.

A very palatable IPA. Iím not an IPA drinker personally, but the smokyness made it ok.
