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.

ben4321 (3807) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Half Time, 10/12/12

Aroma: The nose has some nice pine hops, a little citrus, sweet/roasted malts, and rye
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small, light brown head and some medium lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, lightly roasty, and with a smooth, medium hop bitterness
Palate: It is medium bodied, has a smooth, creamy feel, a soft carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This one works pretty well for sure. They didn’t do anything crazy here, just made a solid, enjoyable Black Rye IPA. The components are all basically what you’d expect, but they all work really well together. It has an especially good feel/drinkability.

Aroma is dark malts, piney hops and a big spicy edge. The flavor is deeply malty, citrus/fruit and a tart/tangy in the finish.

Awesome balance in this beer. Seamlessly runs the spectrum from citrus, to spicy, to chocolate. Long, hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amazing beer. One of my top 5, all time. Super great blend IBU, aroma. Better than Stone’s Sublimely Self-Righteous, and that’s saying quite a bit. Let’s hope they increase production. Tasted only in bottle.

Crispy34 (357) - Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle split. The aroma is awesome. Gorgeous hop aroma. The appearance is dark brown to black. The taste starts off hoppy and holds a great hop flavor through out. Some darkness is present in the flavor, but the hop flavor conceals it in the best way. Overall, this beer is fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RobertDale (3345) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 9, 2012
On tap. Comes almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of pine, grain, and roasted malt. Taste is rye, pine, citrus, roasted malt, and chocolate. Hides the alcohol very well. Very nicely done!

jcos (1522) - Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave on 10/07/2012, crazy Redskins and Nats playoff day.

Appearance: Pours a black opaque with light white lacing.
Aroma: Aroma of roast malt and pine.
Taste: Medium bitterness, nice amount of rye, roasty malt. Balanced.
Palate: Medium- medium light body.

Summary: I enjoyed this, and I like Rye beers so nice to see a black rye beer for the first time. I liked the beer, but it’s really hard to beat out my favorite rye beer on the market(Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye).

Poured a nice blackish brown with a slight tan head, this beer has hints of coffee underlying the rich hops. Good beer for finishing the evening with.

thirdeye11 (5501) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2012
(Draught) deep espresso brown, creamy fine tan bubbled head. Nose of rich fudge, fresh citrus zest, grapefruit, and a touch sweaty also. Taste is sharply bitter, grapefruit, pine, barely any roast (which I like in a black IPA). Not sure why a black IPA tastes like this one does, spicy finish, palate finish burns a bit as well.
