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.

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. I’m not usually a fan of this type of beer, but this one was quite good. Does Firestone make a single bad beer??

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

22 oz. bottle served in a snifter at a tasting at Chris’ place. Pours black with a tall, tan head that fades slowly to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, there are big piney, citric grapefruity hops along with roasted coffee and hints of chocolate, oak and tea. The flavour is well balanced between the bitter hops from the nose and toasty malts. The finish is long and subtle hops. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a great black IPA. It has a beautiful west coast hop aroma combined with subtle roasty earthy malts. Very well done. 2012-12-01
