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.

Pours dark brown with light khaki head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, spruce and citrus. Taste is bitters all around, nice meshing of harsher coffee and sweeter citrus. Medium bodied with dry finish.

Pours jet black with a perfectly sized off-white head. Head dissipated at an average rate. Smells strongly of American hops, but not over done. Very hop forward flavor, excellently balanced by the malt and rye flavors. No alcohol flavors, even at 8.3%. The rye is not in anyway over or under done. Overall this is a really incredible beer.

sm5561 (118) - Kansas City, Alabama, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours black with two finger off white dense head that leaves a few lines of lacing. The aroma is a mix of hops with pine and citrus notes. The taste is similar to an IPA with the same pine and citrus notes from the aroma and just a hint of the rye. It has a moderate bitter finish. The texture was thick and velvety.

Bottle; poured a very dark brown with a large light brown head. Aroma of grapefruit, earth, spice, roasted malt, caramel and cocoa. Very intriguing aroma. Flavor was definitely balanced, with a bit more meaty/leather presence versus the aroma. Pretty enticing palate. Very nice beer.

A little citrus in the aroma. Light grapefruit combined with a little bit of nuttiness makes it very interesting. Flavor is smooth and light toasty malt. Definitely looks like it should be a little more malty and full bodied but still good. Finish is great grapefruit bitter hops again that stick with you for a while. Double jack is still the bomb but this one stands up to any black ipa I’ve had.

Pours clear, excellent head retention, dark chestnut brown color. Bouquet of pine, nutty caramel, marble rye and chocolate cream. Medium bodied, bitter, smooth and hoppy. Medium length aftertaste, tastes of chocolate eye bread, coffee grinds and vanilla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from Hayduke. Thanks Ron! This pours nearly black with some red and has a nice beige head that leaves some funky lacing. The aroma is full of bright hops that are citrus with lesser pine. Nice! After about three sips I am sold. This is perfectly balanced with those hops and the malts that should get an Academy Award for Best Supporting. There is some spiciness that resembles anise. That is usually a deterrent for me but here is is fantastic. This is creamy and smooth in the mouth and the flavors just pop. What a wonderful beer.
