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.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2013 The best black IPA I’ve come across, right here. Look is black with a nice frothy head. Aroma is beautiful hops rising out...dull tropical smell. Rich! Like a straight up IPA. Taste is perfect balance between malt and hops. Slight chockie flavours with hops coming out in sweet lingering bitterness. Overall, a cracker - definitely a BIPA rather than a hoppy porter. Perfect example of the style.

HonusWagner (1702) - Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Nose is heavy, heavy roasted malts and citrus hop quality, intoxicating for a hophead. As usual though, the taste falls short for me, as the style often has too many clashing parts for my palate. The harshness of the bitter finish against the charry, roasted component of the malt body, is less than ideal. Were the nose not so amazing, I probably wouldn’t even give this beer a 3.0, not for lack of skill in craftsmanship but out of disdain for the style.

drowland (6841) - Georgia, USA - FEB 11, 2013
12/27/12. 22oz bottle from HyVee Moline. Deep dark brown pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces a ton. Huge hop aroma with tons of citrus, dankness, green hops, a touch of alcohol, and a hint of pee. Nice hoppy flavor with all of the above on top of a really nice light coffee and chocolate and a nice spiciness. Tasty!

Draft. Dark ruby pour, tan head. Good retention/some lace. Aroma is big citrus/melon hops, light pine, roast, chocolate. Taste is big melon/mango/citrus, light roast. Palate is soft, slick, oily, bitter finish. Really outstanding.

Leafs93 (1882) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours dark brown with light khaki head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, spruce and citrus. Taste is bitters all around, nice meshing of harsher coffee and sweeter citrus. Medium bodied with dry finish.

Disabledbobcat (5) - - FEB 9, 2013 does not count
Pours jet black with a perfectly sized off-white head. Head dissipated at an average rate. Smells strongly of American hops, but not over done. Very hop forward flavor, excellently balanced by the malt and rye flavors. No alcohol flavors, even at 8.3%. The rye is not in anyway over or under done. Overall this is a really incredible beer.

sm5561 (118) - Kansas City, Alabama, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours black with two finger off white dense head that leaves a few lines of lacing. The aroma is a mix of hops with pine and citrus notes. The taste is similar to an IPA with the same pine and citrus notes from the aroma and just a hint of the rye. It has a moderate bitter finish. The texture was thick and velvety.

Jet black. Aroma is sweet and delicious - nice citrus smell. Taste is amazing. citrus with nice toasty finish. Low carbonation, medium bodied. Everything goes together great. Favorite beer I’ve enjoyed in my life so far.
