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.

Standard bearer of this style, truly. Perfectly executed. "Black malt" flavor? Yes. Perfect. Hops flavor? Perfect. Balanced? Perfectly. Try this first. Remember it. Then judge everything else against it. Solid A. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Simply amazing beer. Has a perfect roasty spicy taste coupled with the bitterness from the hops.

Wow, this is a stunner! I’ve never found a black IPA I’ve been a fan of, but this is a different creature. The intensity of the hops is tamed by the dark toastiness, but the aromas and sticky sweet spice are still in the foreground, as dark molasses heft brings a dynamic weight that most IPAs will never muster.

Smells like it belongs in a bowl, amazing. Tastes as good as it smells. Outstanding black IPA, right up there with Odell's Mountain Standard and Marshall's El Cucuy. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours with very large head - could be due to fact it was opened immediately after I took it out of my trunk. Somwehat bitter with mellow aftertaste in the back of your throat. Not bad.

UnDecaf (106) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. Very floral aroma. Complex tasting notes, a little tobacco, some coffee and chocolate, and some pine. The chocolate lingers on the end with some faint bitterness. Very easy to drink, and very good.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Pours a nearly opaque dark reddish brown with a fluffy khaki head. Nice aroma, there’s some toasted malt, lots of citrusy hops, light rye spiciness, and a light coffee scent. Nice bright floral hops up front on the taste, some citrus, toasted malt, lightly spicy, and some light coffee and chocolate. Great black IPA, not overhopped, easy drinking.

pinkzambia (1803) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Tap: Dark, dark, closer to black than brown with a tan head and lots of sticky lacing. Toasty aroma of rye, light cucumbers, and something slightly resembling a watery fruit like watermelon, but mellow. Of course, the juniper shrubs are there as well. The flavor is complex demonstrating the roasted malts and rye mixing well with the hops. You can taste the alcohol towards the end. In the aftertaste, there is a malty feel along with a lingering bitterness. Among those brewers that add rye, this is one of the better ones.

Bottle on 061513. Bottled 042613. Pours dark brown, almost black with a tan head. Aroma has fresh grassy piney hops together with chocolate and roasted notes. Good balance between the fruity hops and roasted malts.Taste is hoppy bitter with some lingering chocolate notes breaking through, some peppery spiciness from the rye also pops up. Medium body and easy drinkabl.
