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.

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.

Bottle. Almost opaque dark brown nearing black and a thin tan head. Nose, of big pine, spicy rye light chocolate and toffee. Tastes is piney, citrus, earthy, roast, spiciness from the rye, bits of chocolate. Medium bodied and medium to long bitter finish.

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

From growler. Dark brown clear pour. Nice citrusy aroma, grapefruity in essence but not a totally generic C-hop profile at all. Flavor is citric up front with a malty finish that screams ’rye.’ Not very roasty. It’s a nice idea -- many black IPAs have a hollow roastiness that doesn’t mesh with the hops, but Wookey Jack’s main malt note in the flavor is rye, a tried and true hop complement. Well done.

Extreme hop-based fresh nose of grapefruit and pine. Not much in the way of black roast/choc/coffee notes in the nose. Gritty mouthfeel, clean, more of an IPA character to this, but some roasted notes in the palate. Hangs together well. Nice lacing + retention. On tap at McGregors.

Dark pour with a huge head. Good lacing. Aroma of roast. Taste is very bitter with lots of citrus and roast notes. Thick mouth with a little chocolate after taste. Really well done.

Pours a black brown color with a large creamy tan head. Classic orange citrus ipa notes with a little bit of bitter cocoa and smoke. Watery mouthfeel.
