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.

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

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.

Finally a black IPA that makes sense to me. The rye dries it out nicely, adds flavor and combined with the bitterness and hop flavor makes this beer something more than a hoppy Porter, which so many black IPAs are. Leave it to FW to get it right.

Really impressed by this one. Great biter rye flavors. Not as much dark malt as most black ipas, may be because it is covered up by the massive amount of hops. This stuff is really good.

Wow! This one is definitely a keeper. I’m not a huge fan of DIPA’s, mainly because the alcohol takes over. But this is a beautifully crafted ale. The alcohol only makes its presence known late into the finish.

Bottle: Pours a dark cola brown with a stiff foamy tan head that you can eat with a fork. The aroma is delicious combination of fresh rye, caramel, and clean flowery hops. The taste is a fantastic balance of sweet and roasty malts and medium hop bitterness that finishes dry and chocolatey. It’s medium bodied with a slick medium carbonated mouthfeel. I absolutely love this beer and found it incredibly easy to drink for an 8% ABV. This is what Black IPA’s *should* aspire to be.

Boom...awesome. Loved the dark, bitter rye flavors. Incredible on tap. Very good in a 22 oz bottle.
