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.

Poured from bomber into pint glass. Nice toasty dark IPA with big head. Sweet grape fruity piney aroma. Close your eyes and this could be just a regular yummy IPA. After a few sips you do notice the roasted malt backbone. Nice balance of hop and malt. I will be having this again soon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Dark pour, light brown head. Aroma is some hops, citrus, nice malt notes. Flavor is smooth, some pine, citrus, hops, pretty enjoyable. Some notes of spice rye notes. Alcohol is pretty well masked here. Pretty enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Bomber at home. Pours black with two finger off-white head. Aroma is dry, bready. Taste is bitter, spicy, with crisp,dry finish. Too much age here - looking forward to trying it fresher.

One week old bottle back in fall ’12 into a Spiegelau Pilsner (?!, more like a slimmed Duvel tulip). Excellent ABA. Dark malts meet citrusy hops to form something special. What makes this unique is the creamy toffee malt layer which blends the dark characteristics and citrus nuances into an exponentially layered experience. Firestone smooth. Makes my brain tingle.

22oz bottle. Dark brown with a foamy light tan head. Aroma of citrus, coffee, cocoa and pine. Flavor is bitter hops, roasted coffee and spicy rye bread. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry finish. Good black IPA, would like to retry a fresher example.

Bomber from BevMo dated 11/20/12. Dark brown pour. Long lasting tan head. Intense aroma of ruby red grapefruit. Smells just like a fresh cut ruby red grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit, sugar and rye. If it wasn’t for the color I might not know this was a Black IPA. The usual roasted flavor of dark malts is not present in this beer. With that being said, this is an excellent, well balanced beer. I’d say if you are a lover of grapefruit, as I am, this is definitely a beer that you will like.

By far my favorite BIPA. Aroma was big grapefruit and pine with some light roast in there. Pour is dark brown with a nice fluffy head. A touch of rye and roast come through more so in the taste behind citrusy hops to make a nicely balanced, not over-the-top BIPA. Great!

Draft, at house 1000 beers. Black color, small head. Aroma of fresh citrus and roasted malt. Medium bitterness (at least). Roasted malt, citrus, slight dark fruit in taste and some pine. Big bitter finish. Enjoyed.
