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.

Good hoppy aroma. Dark, stout color light tan head. Cocoa, light spices, hops, tastes good well balanced. Sweet, nice hoppy after taste. Very good beer.

Black pour, thick, lasting tan head, fantastic floral hop aroma. Taste is primarily hop bitterness but with some underlying, mild malt and rye complexity. Finish is pretty bitter and lingering. It’s ok, a bit heavy on the bitterness, and there are IPAs with more interesting hop profiles. The rye tends to accentuate the bitterness. Not one I need to try again.

Bomber. Great stinky deeply spicy aroma and substantial manure notes. Very dark brown, creamy tan head. Sharp peppery initial / then the hops come streaming in and a slight metallic notes emerges / finish is well balanced and medium mild. Medium body. Very tasty, and the aroma is even better. Alc. is well disguised. Love it.

Very black color. White! head is thick and holds. The aroma is hoppy, citrus, and danky. The beer tastes.like a good IPA or double le therefore... you may as well ignore the color. It laces beautifully. It tastes as good as the best double golden.copper IPA you’re gonna drink tonight. So.. have 2, enjoy the balance, and carry on........

Bottle pours a dark brown brew with a lasting tan head. Scent is pine, rye and citrus. Taste is pine, caramel, citrus with a nice rye bitter finish. Great!

Best black IPA I've had. Perfect roasted malt hop balance. The hops are just citrus enough to nail the balance. Killer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Cask and Vine. English pint shows a deep brown with thin soapy head. Nose is lots of vibrant citrus hops. The flavor starts with light chocolate malt followed by coffee hints and finished off with crisp citrus hops. As it warms pine notes show up as well. Rye spice is subtle. ABV is masked perfectly. This is a wonderful brew.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 Black with tan head. Eucalyptus (catty) and pine. Flavor is predominately citrusy hops with a dry roasted malt finish. Not sure why this one was scored so high by most others.

One finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is an amazing blend of pine and roasted malt. Great depth. The taste is big on the pine bitterness accompanied by the malt sweetness. The finish is a dry bitterness. Really great. The texture is smooth, yet crisp with moderate carbonation. An impressive drink.
