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.

Tasted on tap at The Map Room in Chicago. Dark brown color with a full initial head. Nice, but faint aroma. The rye was a bit too much for my taste.

On tap at Somerset Hills Tap Room. Intense hop aroma blew me away before even tasting it. And then the perfect balance of dark malts and spicy rye surpassed my prior favorite Black IPA. Sorry Stone, your Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale has been overcome, only not sure if I can find this Firesteone brew as easily. Malts not so deep as the Stone offering, but the Rye complexity is just amazing. A new favorite in Black IPAs.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Serving: draft at Fireworks. Pours black with a lasting tan head. The nose has a bit of roasted malt and green viney hops. The flavor is hop forward with notes of mint, spruce, minerals, charcoal, and heavily roasted malt. Medium to full body. Lasting finish. Solid.

In my top 10 Black IPAs. Nice color, smell, and taste. Complex, malty and then the right hoppy feel. Will be having it again... another for my US beer buying list :-)

Poured from bomber into pint glass. Nice toasty dark IPA with big head. Sweet grape fruity piney aroma. Close your eyes and this could be just a regular yummy IPA. After a few sips you do notice the roasted malt backbone. Nice balance of hop and malt. I will be having this again soon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Dark pour, light brown head. Aroma is some hops, citrus, nice malt notes. Flavor is smooth, some pine, citrus, hops, pretty enjoyable. Some notes of spice rye notes. Alcohol is pretty well masked here. Pretty enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Bomber at home. Pours black with two finger off-white head. Aroma is dry, bready. Taste is bitter, spicy, with crisp,dry finish. Too much age here - looking forward to trying it fresher.
