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.

eaglefan538 (3016) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Rating from both a bottle and several draft experiences from a single sixtel: Pour is deep dark brown to almost black and stout-like. Head is modest but well-sustaining, lacing all the way down even a smooth shaker glass. Aroma of chocolate, citrus, and resinous. Flavor was rich, sharp bitter resinous and citrus hops, chocolate malts underneath, even a bit of sweetness detectable if you clear the hops off the back of the pallette. Additionally, the flavor features brown sugars and molasses, rye bite and spicing notes, roasted bitterness in the finish too. Mouthfeel was slick for an american black ale, robust, smooth, nothing sticky at all here. An amazing concoction, great things playing off each other. Carbonation moderate to low. Maybe the best black IPA I’ve had? FW knows their stuffs.

thebeertourist (5170) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from Gbbf 2013. Dark brown with a nice head. Grapefruity hop nose. Deeply bitter, nothing but citrussy hoppiness. Only the colour suggests a more-dimensional beer.

Pours a French Roast coffee color, nice head and lace, hopped black licorice on the nose, deep roasted, chocolatey malt backbone, finishing with a perfect balance of malt and hops. I can’t imagine a better black IPA.

yngwie (16377) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at Firestone Walker Taproom, Buellton. A dark brown beer with a small, light beige head leaving some cute curtains. Oranges, pine cones and citrus peel on the nose, like smelling hop pellets from the bag. Lightly roasted with licorice and some coffee. There’s a salty touch in the mouth, mostly bitter and roasted though. Orange, pine cones and a really good bitterness. Full body, pleasant carbonation level. Lasting finish. A bit too hop pellets like maybe, but sure nice. 130809

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - AUG 8, 2013
22oz bottle. Pours an inky black color with a creamy light brown head that fades slowly, leaving a nice lace. Aroma has big citric and resiny hops upfront. The resiny aspect of the hops blends well into rye spice and is followed up by a light roastiness.Taste is a combination of piney, citrusy hops, a medium roastiness from the dark malt and a peppery spice from the rye, with a hint of warming alcohol. Medium body with soft carbonation.
