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.

Pours a very dark, deep brown with a tan head. Aroma is a bit different, as this is a rye IPA. The rye is very noticeable, but pine impressions are dominant. Grapefruit and caramel round this out. The taste is extreme in pine and hops. There is still a good amount of rye underneath. I get some coffee as well, with this one being very earthy and toasty altogether in this respect. Very dry. Thicker in body with a chewy mouthful. Aftertaste is long lasting, with a burnt flavor of pine and rye. This has a great hoppy kick as well. I must say that this a fantastic beer. Big flavor, strong yet not overpowering, and a cool name to boot. And in my part of the world, this is quite a bit cheaper than many mediocre selections that I have. Without a doubt, this one shouldn't be missed.

This is a great beer. Clearly an IPA from its fragrancedespite te deep ruby black color. nice head and nice lacing. aromatic hops with that extra astringent effect fro the rye with cirus notes as well.

22oz bottle, thanks to my mom for providing me with my first couple FW brews. Bottled 8/21/12. Surprisingly light body for the ABV. Very soft, smooth carbonation. More dry texture. Really nice balance of roasty malts and delicious hops. Hops are earthy, spicy, and piney. Light bitterness, spice taste. Some sweetness. Good foamy half inch light brown head. Nice history of lace. Dark but not completely opaque color. Great roasty hoppy aftertaste, hint of coffee in there. Toasty, grainy rye complements this excellently. This is a potent brew with that rare combination of incredibly good, incredibly easy to drink. It’s got a bit of everything I love - hoppiness and roastiness - that holds my attention, and is a fine example of what I love about the Black IPA. Definitely one that I want to revisit.

22 oz bottle from DaBuca’s. A pitch black brew with thick frothy tan head. Strong floral-spice hop aromas. Some alcohol in the nose. Flavor of deep, sweet malts and lots of hoppiness. Some pine, some gum, some smoke.

Bottle at craft ale house. Pours black with a small tan head. The aroma is full of pine, and citrus. If it was not black, white I’d assume a regular ipa. Taste has a bitter bite, and some chocolate malt, and rye spice.

Slipstream (1932) - USA - SEP 22, 2012
I was excited to try this one, since I have grown to be a FW fan in the last year or so. A fine aroma of pine, molasses, coffee, and floral hops. The dry, espresso-like taste contrasts a bit with the scent. It is a little bitter and acrid, with some charcoal, but the flavor is still fine. A good brew, but it doesn’t belong in the top 1% and not one of FW’s best.

I found this beer to be absolutely outstanding. Tons of hops, a solid strong body, a beautiful black color, easily in the top 3 of black ipas if not the best
