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.

I havenít been a fan of this style, but I really loved this. Pours black. Aroma- piney citrus, chocolate, and a bit of spicy rye. The taste combines these flavors extremely well. You get the citrus hops chocolate and the rye. You can taste each one individually, but they all blend extremely well together. Great beer. The best black ipa Iíve had yet.

Thanks to tastybeer for sharing this. A well balanced black IPA, it has all the aspects of a top notch West Coast beer. I havenít tried many Firestone Walker releases but I do not see turning them down if offered. So far all have been solid.

Aroma / Appearance - Carbonated and murky, the black base is decorated by a sheen of cocoa head. Malty notes carry coffee grounds and deep hops. The vegetatal aspect is distracting unfortunately.

Flavor / Palate - Hopped up black coffee sparks the palate into action. A resiny feel rests on the back of the throat. Well rounded this does not have any big surprises. However neither does it disappoint. This is recommended if you pick up a fresh bottle.

Pours dark and black, but thins out to a clear kola, with a finger or two of somewhat lacy white-corn foam. Smell is of sweet grains, and earthy grapefruit. Taste starts and ends with grapefruit bitterness, with notes of pumpernickel bread, and slight sweet undertones also present. Finish is very hoppy, with lingering alpha-acids. Mouthfeel is medium and lightly sticky. Medium to high carbonation.

22oz bomber shared with JohnGonk. Pours pure black with 2 fingers of off white head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, peppery rye, and notes of toffee sweetness. Taste is lots of pine and grapefruit hop character, chocolate, caramel, and ends with a nice peppery rye spiciness.

Thanks to phillybeer! Pours black but really just a deep red that lets you see through it just a little. Nose is intense, tropical fruits, dank hops, pines, resins, citrus, chocolates, roasted malt complexities, and toasted breads. Flavor is similar. Sweet malt flavors but finishes dry and just a touch tart. Bitterness is medium to medium low but seems good for the dryness. Moderate carbonation. This is quite the lovely treat.

22 oz. bottle from dbsdelight- thanks a bunch, Dan! Pours an opaque dark brown, basically black in the glass, with a large foamy tan head that settles unevenly and leaves some lace streaks and spots. Aroma of rich roasted malts, dark chocolate, citrusy and earthy hops, and burnt toast. Flavor of citrus up front, with bitter dark chocolate, earth, and long roast on the finish. Light-medium bodied, with a roasty, bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Very good BIPA. Hits all the right notes.
