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.

Bottle; poured a very dark brown with a large light brown head. Aroma of grapefruit, earth, spice, roasted malt, caramel and cocoa. Very intriguing aroma. Flavor was definitely balanced, with a bit more meaty/leather presence versus the aroma. Pretty enticing palate. Very nice beer.

A little citrus in the aroma. Light grapefruit combined with a little bit of nuttiness makes it very interesting. Flavor is smooth and light toasty malt. Definitely looks like it should be a little more malty and full bodied but still good. Finish is great grapefruit bitter hops again that stick with you for a while. Double jack is still the bomb but this one stands up to any black ipa Iíve had.

Pours clear, excellent head retention, dark chestnut brown color. Bouquet of pine, nutty caramel, marble rye and chocolate cream. Medium bodied, bitter, smooth and hoppy. Medium length aftertaste, tastes of chocolate eye bread, coffee grinds and vanilla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from Hayduke. Thanks Ron! This pours nearly black with some red and has a nice beige head that leaves some funky lacing. The aroma is full of bright hops that are citrus with lesser pine. Nice! After about three sips I am sold. This is perfectly balanced with those hops and the malts that should get an Academy Award for Best Supporting. There is some spiciness that resembles anise. That is usually a deterrent for me but here is is fantastic. This is creamy and smooth in the mouth and the flavors just pop. What a wonderful beer.

(bottle - 22 oz - Night of the Titans 2013) Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Big hop and dry rye notes in the aroma with the mildest hint of chocolate. Flavor is loaded with citrus and pine laden hops that moves quickly to a very nice dry rye flavor. Dry and bitter flavor on the aftertaste. Wonderful rye flavor throughout.

22 oz. bottle, PDT 10/19/12- Pours almost black with red highlights and a huge three finger mocha colored creamy head and curtain lacework. The aroma is nice and hoppy, piney, citrusy. The taste is chocolate malts, moderately bitter hops, spicy from the rye. This is a unique black IPA, usually they just taste like a hopped up porter to me, but this is very complex, everything just blends wonderfully. Body is medium, carbonation is high. Overall this is a winner, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Tasted on tap at The Map Room in Chicago. Dark brown color with a full initial head. Nice, but faint aroma. The rye was a bit too much for my taste.
