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. Pours a black color with tan head. Sweet, citrus, burnt, roasted, floral aromas. Mixture of roasted malty flavors and citrus hoppy flavors. Nice black IPA, but not mind blowing.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 AUGH! That aroma! Sharpest perfumey pine tree smell ever encountered. WAY too strong for me, even if there is some other interesting stuff going on that’s buried beneath all the pine. Appearance is lovely, though - dark with ruby and purple highlights and a terrific head with even better lacing. Flavor - pine! Just too much pine. I do notice some of the spicy rye as well, and it has a good mouthfeel, but the pine still overwhelms too much. This one was hyped big, but I am disappointed. I do not mind IPAs that have pine as a CHARACTERISTIC, but when it OVERWHELMS, the brewer has lost me as a fan of the beer. Drainpoured this one. Big downrate here.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle thanks to BMartin. Thanks! The aroma has heavy resinous qualities, some floral citrus comes through, but there’s also an herbal quality to it. The aroma reminds me a lot of a simcoe hop tea. The spiciness of the rye comes through more aggressively in the taste. The bitterness is mellow, but the flavors of the hops used are still coming through, just not in the way of bittering. The beer moves to a sweetness in the finish that reminds me of mexican chocolate.

A wonderful beer! Perfect dark black pour with a nice thick head. Huge amounts of lacing on my glass. Nice toasted malt aroma with the piney/spruce smell of hops. Really nice blend of roasted malt to go along with the bitterness from the hops. Firestone Walker is making some great beers.

The perfict look for a beer beer black to very dark brown with a amazing tight bubble tan head that lingering on the glass. Aroma is also very nice a little light but pleasant. Very enjoyable flavor that is hoppy a touch bitter and also full of malts. Not overly sweet like many others a a touch tart.

22 oz bottle: Pours dark black with a nice tan head and lots of CO2. Slick on the glass. Aroma of spruce and citrus hops with a nice roasted malt. Taste is complex, spicy, bitter on the finish. Nice hop profile with a good malt balance. Truly a great beer all the way around. Smooth on the palate, slightly bitter on the finish, but it should be for a big IPA.

Bottle at Papsø. Clear red-brown coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet and roasted aroma of dark chocolate, hops, grass and pine needles. Fruity flavour of hops, grass and grapefruits with roasted notes. Hoppy finish.

Bottle. Dark brown, almost black, pour with aroma of nice rye and hops. Flavor is dark chocolate, more rye and finished rich and a decent amount of hops. One of the best black IPAs I have had.
