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.

holy crap Firestone Walker nailed it with Woo key! Big viscous black as night coffee pour with a massive latte foam head and a ton of sticky lacing all over the place. The aroma is gigantic with a super intense roasted base and notes of smoke, earthy spice and a big NW hop firm with pine resin. Just a huge aroma. Fuill bodied and almost syrupy with definite sweetness and a major roasted malt. Smokey and a bit of an ashy earthen note towards the finish lend to big bitterness. Juicy hop resins with big citrus and floral notes. Overall not well balanced but a super tasty brew.

2012-12-30. Very dark brown-black body, modest frothy beige head And lace. 4+ Nice hoppy aroma, green leafy hops with overtones of cannabis "skunk". Mild dark malt. 7++ Flavour is similar with green leafy hop character over rich sweet malt base. Very mild roast malt touches. Moderate bitterness throughout, green hops linger In the finish. 7+ Very Smooth medium bodied palate is suitably carbonated. 3+ Exceptionally balanced and very drinkable. Lacks depth at times but is lovely overall, perhaps the hops have aged a bit? Bottle a couple of months old from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo

iworkatinitech (24) - New York, USA - DEC 30, 2012
A truly amazing example of a Black IPA, with Rye thrown in! The aroma is roasty and hoppy all at once! The roast on the grains in here are perfect without any of the acrid taste that can sometimes seep through. As expected the Firestone Brewery knocks the hops out of the park on this one!

scooter520 (185) - - DEC 29, 2012
Bottled 11/8/12. Appearance: very dark brown pour with huge, frothy, lingering tan head. Aroma: huge citrus and piney hops and roasted malts,, spicy rye, slight chocolate and eucalyptus. Taste: nice floral hops on the front going into roasted malts, mild chocolate and coffee and that spicy rye in the end with that eucalyptus almost wintergreen aftertaste. Mouthfeel: slick thin to medium with medium carbonation. Overall: this is such an amazing beer. Like a wonderful mix between two of my favorite styles (west coast IPA & stout) with that extra dimension the rye brings. Favorite Black IPA by far to date.

budznsudz (571) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Pours dark brown with a well retaining head of brownish beige. The aroma is spicy rye, piney hops, and roasted malt. The taste is full of pinecone, toasty grains, and a nice rye sharpness. The carbonation allows it all to dance lively on the palatte. Good combination of flavors.
