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.

In short: A rye-based roasted black beer bursting with pine-needles and grapefruity hops. Bright and excellent.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh soon after the beer was first released.
The look: Black body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is bright and hoppy with green pine needles, grapefruits, green hops pellets and toasted rye bread. Taste has a good amount of roasted rye bread, a slice of black cake, a bit of caramel, distant chocolate, assertive hopping with grapefruits, green pine-needles and more. Bitterness sensation in the medium range. Medium finish. Very easy to drink. This is the second rye-based Black IPA I drink in a span of 2 weeks (the other was Yorkholo “Panamah”) and both were excellent, I’m really hoping this is the beginning of a new trend, I really dig rye in a Black IPA. If you ask me, Black Rye IPA is the best thing since sliced bread (or any other fattening food that don’t try to run away when you want to eat it).

22oz bomber, poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown, opaque and unfiltered. Nice frothy tan head. Looks like a porter, smells like an IPA. Lots of citrusy hop character and roasted malts. Tastes like a bitter hoppy IPA, piney citrusy hops balanced by sweet chocolate and molasses maltyness. Rye is noticeable nicely in the finish. Great carbonation and moderately thick mouthfeel. Very drinkable. So glad I tried it.

Pours black with a medium creamy light tan head. Aroma of roasty coffee, citrus and resin hops, and a little pine. Tastes of pine and citrus with a strong malt backing of cereal, caramel, and roasty coffee. Creamy full bodied with a little alcohol warmth. Fantastic beer and so well made.

A bomber. Aroma is bitter chocolate, toffee and citrusy hops flavour (Citra and Amarillo) . Taste is amazing, a perfect combination of malt sweetness and hops, rye is present, specially in the dry aftertaste. Medium carbonation, easy drinking. Like heaven on glass.

DesertDevil (614) - Arizona, USA - DEC 14, 2012
On tap at the Watering Hole in Whole Foods Chandler. Pours dark, rich brown with a light beige head. Slight rye on the nose and almost nothing else. Taste starts with a light hop bite, them the rye kicks in. An almost astringient palate. Nice, unlike any black IPA I’ve had.

I saw it and it had to be mine, and for $8 a bomber, I knew it would be a one time affair. Massive spicy, smokey, roasted resinous aromatic nonsense. Not necessarily appealing, but very intense. Oily blackish brown, greasy, lacy head everywhere. Man is it bitter, but it has that black burnt malt semisweetness that balances so well. Long, resin filled presence at the back of the palate that will last until you consume something else. Heavy and punishing like a linebacker’s blitz. Not for the faint of stomach, even if not exactly a boozey brew.

22oz bomber. Pours jet black with thick head. Medium carbonation. Not as much hop aroma as I would expect. Big citrus hop flavor. Rye spice is balanced perfectly with the hop and yeast characters to make one outstanding beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keyes88 (60) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Pours a black body with a slight mocha colored head. Massive tropical aroma with chocolate and roast. Taste continues with a nice blend of chocolate and roast with the tropical notes. Becomes more bitter over time. Medium body with medium carbonation. Great rendition of the style especially for the price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I’m not a big India pale ale fan, but when I came across this brew at my liquor outlet I had to give it a try. The black rye is what caught my attention. I had never had anything like that before and I must say, I’m hooked. It has an amazing aroma and a nice complex flavor that I couldn’t put down. My only regret... Not buying more when I had the chance.
