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 was poured from an already opened, warm bottle at their stand at CBC2013 and it was just kinda meh. I will try it again if I ever see it.

Strong, real strong! A wonderful balance of hops with malt. Poors black with lasting light brown head. The rye brings an intresting edge!

brnandersen (3253) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2013
Sample from bottle, CBC 2013. Dark brown colour with a reddish hue. Big, frothy tan head. Fruity aroma with pines, grass, citrus, a hearthy amount of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is bitter. Full body, creamy texture. Finishes bitter and roasted. Excellent Black IPA.

Dedollewaitor (15487) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle @ CBC, 2013. Pours black with a creamy head. Pine and roast. Bitter hoppy flavor and finish with notes of marmelade and grapefruit. Really tasty.

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Growler. Rich malt and piney hops, yet lacks the roasty depth that defines the style. Bitter, mildly resinous. Tastes more like a typical west coast IPA than a Black IPA. But too much carbonation and not enough body.

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Smells great. Hoppy with a slight chocolate aroma. Smells light bodied. It is a dark brown beer with a medium brown head. A nice bitter taste with a smooth vreamy mouthfeel. Theres a choc flavor aftertaste and has a medium body. Not bad. Worth a try for sure. Its not overpoweringly bitter and the choc combo with the bitterness is great.

haukur (1711) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAY 6, 2013
Tasty black IPA, a bit surprising though. Brown towards black in looks, small head. Loads of malt and spices in the nose, some obvious spices and earth tones. Tingeling bitterness. Delicate and good!

jmgreenuk (7460) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Poured a dark brown colour with a thick frothy tan head. The aroma is grassy hop leading to a medium bitter flavour, spicy, grassy and with some pepper on the palate. This beer grew on me the more I drank it. Worth tracking down if you can.
