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.

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 (2182) - 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.

Pours deep dark brown/black with thick beige head. Aroma is roasty malt. Taste is roasty malt upfront with some coffee and sweet caramel malt on the follow through. Aftertaste brings out more roastiness with just a hint of bitter citrus hops that linger for a bit. Palate is feels thick and somewhat sticky. Overall excellent balance and lots of flavors that blend together much better than you would expect. Sets the bar for the Black IPA style.

Doesn't get any better. The single best black rye IPA I've ever had (which is my absolute favorite style of beer). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is one of the best executed beers of all time. For being something as obscure as a black rye IPA, this beer is perfect. The aroma consists mainly of citrus, with a great amount of roasty/spicy rye malt in close pursuit. The sip starts smooth, with a lightly carbonated hoppy ale hitting your tongue. Then it happens..... The hop blast. This is a very hoppy beer. Overloads of citrus and pine buzz around and on your tongue. Then you realize the buzzing is because you have a ridiculously grainy beer assaulting your mouth. It transforms into a roasty, grainy, spicy beast of a dark rye ale. The grainy spice all but kills the hop flavor in your mouth, inviting for another sip......

Jayb0 (1156) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2013
This was excellent. Dark as night with a strong, foamy, beige head, lots of lacing. Creamy, bold, rich and mildly spicy, lots of hops battling the malt and keeping a perfect balance and dry-ish finish that lingers with subtle bitter chocolate and lingering hop bite.
