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.

The aroma is a typical hoppy bitterness. The color is extreme dark brown with white foamy suds. There is a bit of bite in the carbonation. Somewhat dry taste which a good mix of hops and smokiness.

Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Outstanding balance of malt and hops here. Sticky flowery and citric hops, sweet chocolate and lightly roasted malts. Black IPA? Hoppy porter? Who the hell cares, this is pretty delicious.

Bottle (22 oz). Traded by Reynolds314, thanks Matt! Black with medium beige head, good retention and beautiful heavy lacing. Aroma is interesting with grapefruits, roasted malt, piney notes, citrus and spices. Taste if of roasted malt, citrus (grapefruit), piney notes. Moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is quite interesting, the Rye may be in cause for this. Dry. Alcohol is well hidden. Probably the best Black IPA Iíve tasted so far. Great balance and extremely drinkable (dangerously) for a 8,3% abv. I would love to have access to this on a regular basis!

Dr_MedievAle (199) - Alabama, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Appearance: Pours a stout-like black; with some light, turns a dark amber in the glass. Smell: Floral hops with a nicely subtle wiff of fresh-baked rye bread. Mouth/Palate: Thin but not afraid to explore your palate. Let this one find its own way down your gullet. Taste: Very comparable to Green Flash West Coast IPA -- bitterness from floral hops with a rye note at the end. Balance in favor of hops over malts, for sure, but not aggressively so.

For a black ipa (rye), it kicked ass. I was surprised at the drink ability. I thought it was going to kill my palate but it was crisp and clean! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This black ipa is delicious! The rye adds an even more Smokey flavor. Color isis solid black. Tan head. Warm on the stomach though. My favorite black ipa by far.

My favorite black IPA. Big hops, roasted flavor from the malts, and a healthy dose of rye. Smooth finish.

On tap at Leroys in Coronado. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is hops, citrus, peach, rye, chocolate. Taste follows. Iím not usually a fan of this type of beer, but this one was quite good. Does Firestone make a single bad beer??

Doofgoblin (469) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Lots of citrus aroma, even some peach smell in there. Dark and thick with a tan head. Tastes of citrusy, stone fruit notes with a toasty roasted middle and a minor smoky/chocolate note. Lot of complexity here. Finishes smooth and slightly sweet. Wow that's good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a very dark mahogany color with a small light tan head. Smoked caramel aroma with a solid sense of hops. Smooth taste. Caramel and hops mixed together. Solid balance. Light finish. Really good
