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.

This isthe best rye IPA you can buy. It’s my first beer rating so cut me some slack however if you want something different this is your beer. The flavors are perfect all the way through. I’m a big FW fan!

Pours blacl with nice beige head. Took an aggressive pour. Aroma of pine and citrus, pretty much all hops. Mouthfeel is thicker than I expected from the nose. Flavor of pine, toasted or burnt wood, smokey roasted malt. Sime spice on the end I assume from the rye. Bitter finish with the strong hops lasting. One of my favorite for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wookey Jack was smooth like a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Dark brown-black appearance. Medium to light bodied. It tasted and smelled earthy, smokey, and a bit diminishing with each sip. The several, subtle flavors here make you pay more attention to what you’re drinking. I’ll have to keep an eye out for other rye black ipa’s because this one left me with a good impression.

Pours very black with hints of brown on the edges. Half a finger of a khaki head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is big citrus notes and roasted malt. Taste has similar characteristics as aroma but with some spice as well. Very complex body with a medium mouth feel.

Bottle. Pours a black color with tan head. Sweet, citrus, burnt, roasted, floral aromas. Mixture of roasted malty flavors and citrus hoppy flavors. Nice black IPA, but not mind blowing.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 AUGH! That aroma! Sharpest perfumey pine tree smell ever encountered. WAY too strong for me, even if there is some other interesting stuff going on that’s buried beneath all the pine. Appearance is lovely, though - dark with ruby and purple highlights and a terrific head with even better lacing. Flavor - pine! Just too much pine. I do notice some of the spicy rye as well, and it has a good mouthfeel, but the pine still overwhelms too much. This one was hyped big, but I am disappointed. I do not mind IPAs that have pine as a CHARACTERISTIC, but when it OVERWHELMS, the brewer has lost me as a fan of the beer. Drainpoured this one. Big downrate here.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle thanks to BMartin. Thanks! The aroma has heavy resinous qualities, some floral citrus comes through, but there’s also an herbal quality to it. The aroma reminds me a lot of a simcoe hop tea. The spiciness of the rye comes through more aggressively in the taste. The bitterness is mellow, but the flavors of the hops used are still coming through, just not in the way of bittering. The beer moves to a sweetness in the finish that reminds me of mexican chocolate.

A wonderful beer! Perfect dark black pour with a nice thick head. Huge amounts of lacing on my glass. Nice toasted malt aroma with the piney/spruce smell of hops. Really nice blend of roasted malt to go along with the bitterness from the hops. Firestone Walker is making some great beers.

Bottle at Papsø’s - Thanks. Clear dark black - white head. Fruity, nice burned malts, ok bitterness, spicy rye notes, ok hoppy, citrus, red berries, light body, licorice. Nice.
