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.

Bottle from Bytemesis, Thanks Mike!, 3months old but still a nice hoppy beer, good roasty nose with a face smack of hops when tasted, well finished, tasty brew.

Bottle pours a dark brown brew with a lasting tan head. Scent is pine, rye and citrus. Taste is pine, caramel, citrus with a nice rye bitter finish. Great!

Best black IPA I've had. Perfect roasted malt hop balance. The hops are just citrus enough to nail the balance. Killer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Cask and Vine. English pint shows a deep brown with thin soapy head. Nose is lots of vibrant citrus hops. The flavor starts with light chocolate malt followed by coffee hints and finished off with crisp citrus hops. As it warms pine notes show up as well. Rye spice is subtle. ABV is masked perfectly. This is a wonderful brew.

DavidWoodruff (395) - Windsor, California, USA - FEB 14, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 Black with tan head. Eucalyptus (catty) and pine. Flavor is predominately citrusy hops with a dry roasted malt finish. Not sure why this one was scored so high by most others.

One finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is an amazing blend of pine and roasted malt. Great depth. The taste is big on the pine bitterness accompanied by the malt sweetness. The finish is a dry bitterness. Really great. The texture is smooth, yet crisp with moderate carbonation. An impressive drink.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2013 The best black IPA I’ve come across, right here. Look is black with a nice frothy head. Aroma is beautiful hops rising out...dull tropical smell. Rich! Like a straight up IPA. Taste is perfect balance between malt and hops. Slight chockie flavours with hops coming out in sweet lingering bitterness. Overall, a cracker - definitely a BIPA rather than a hoppy porter. Perfect example of the style.

HonusWagner (1598) - Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Nose is heavy, heavy roasted malts and citrus hop quality, intoxicating for a hophead. As usual though, the taste falls short for me, as the style often has too many clashing parts for my palate. The harshness of the bitter finish against the charry, roasted component of the malt body, is less than ideal. Were the nose not so amazing, I probably wouldn’t even give this beer a 3.0, not for lack of skill in craftsmanship but out of disdain for the style.

LoFi (1595) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle from trade with skycracksopen, big thanks! Dark brown with a beige head leaving lacing. Aroma: large hoppiness with peach and citrus, licorice, light rye spiciness. Taste: tropical fruits, grapefruit, some salt, rye spiciness, licorice, light milk chocolate, strawberries, röd blandsaft. Medium bodied+. Very nicely balanced black IPA.

12/27/12. 22oz bottle from HyVee Moline. Deep dark brown pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces a ton. Huge hop aroma with tons of citrus, dankness, green hops, a touch of alcohol, and a hint of pee. Nice hoppy flavor with all of the above on top of a really nice light coffee and chocolate and a nice spiciness. Tasty!
