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.

Aubrey (3481) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Solid black IPA, and very drinkable, too. Subtle toast and healthy dark chocolate plus some spicy rye in the malts. Lots of pine, grass and citrus in the hops. Great balance between the two.

topherh (1914) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Pours dark brown with a thin off khaki head. Aroma is roasted malt, some chocolate, and spicy pine. Initial sweetness, some lightly roasted malt, an herbal spiciness, with a strong dose of bitter piney hops.

jeremyh70 (832) - Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Hazy dark brown with decent head and lacing. Piney hop aroma with rye apparent. Roastiness and piney hop flavor with rye flavor and mild tea. Some caramel malt at finish. Fuller mouthfeel with semi high carbonation. Good for style but not my favorite. I could drink but wouldn't buy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Could be because the date on the bottle was 11/20/12 n- but this has a slight sour flavor in the back of the palate. Otherwise aroma was good, but muted. The Pour was will very little head but formed a nice tan top. Goes down very smooth, but I would like to try this fresh.

Bottle to drifter. Pours a brown, red, cola color. Aroma is hops and rye. Taste is also rye and hops with little else. Not a real pleasant bitterness. Medium mouthfeel with lits of carbonation. Was hoping for more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cola color with a little bit of white head. A hoppy rye smell that comes through in the taste with a good amount of carbonation. A little bit of sweet caramel malt on the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ajnepple (2901) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 22 oz bottled on 11/20/12. Almost black with a thick off-white head that lingered a bit and left spectacular lacing. Smells mostly citric and floral, with some earthy, pine notes as well as some wheat and rye. Medium-bodied, creamy, and smooth with a pleasant, unfiltered texture. Exceptionally well-balanced flavor of hop bitterness, dark malts and spicy rye. Hoppy, rich finish with a touch of sweetness. Complex and very drinkable. A phenomenal IPA.

mensch (262) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Big black beer, lacy foam cap. Aromas of roast malt, coffee, fruity hops and a little mint. Very well balanced between the dark malt and hop flavors. Again, in the finish, the hop bitters meld well with the dry malt bitterness. I canít seem to pick out the rye, but donít care. Love it.

tmoreau (2744) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Served to a house snifter at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL., showing a black/brown hue, a billowy layer of light tan head froth, and good cling to the patches of curtainy lacing. The aroma had a pleasant, sweet citrus nature to it, followed by a touch of resin and rye spiciness. With a medium+ body, and moderate alcohol presence, the flavor highlighted an earthy hop bitterness that retained itís presentable roasted & hop bite at the end, along with a complementary dryness. The rye interplayed well. Very impressed! Next time, on tap and snifter served at Lunar Brewing Co.. The citrus in the aroma was grapefruit-like, and a touch of dank grain scent was also noticeable. Bitterness again was very lingering, strong, but non harsh.
