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.

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 írye.í Not very roasty. Itís a nice idea -- many black IPAs have a hollow roastiness that doesnít mesh with the hops, but Wookey Jackís 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.

i find it on the pine cone side which i appreciate more so than the citrus. mellow sharpness and smooth the beer is not sweet and somewhat creamy as well as substantial with good body. some light rye and the perception of cocoa.

Pours blacl with nice beige head. Took an aggressive pour. Aroma of pine and citrus, pretty much all hops. Mouthfeel is thicker than I expected from the nose. Flavor of pine, toasted or burnt wood, smokey roasted malt. Sime spice on the end I assume from the rye. Bitter finish with the strong hops lasting. One of my favorite for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wookey Jack was smooth like a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Dark brown-black appearance. Medium to light bodied. It tasted and smelled earthy, smokey, and a bit diminishing with each sip. The several, subtle flavors here make you pay more attention to what youíre drinking. Iíll have to keep an eye out for other rye black ipaís because this one left me with a good impression.

Pours very black with hints of brown on the edges. Half a finger of a khaki head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is big citrus notes and roasted malt. Taste has similar characteristics as aroma but with some spice as well. Very complex body with a medium mouth feel.

22 oz bomber from state line liquors, maryland. F U Pennsylvania and your dopey beer laws! i have never tried an unfiltered black rye ipa, and this one was nice. nice malt, hop balance, nice aroma, nice flavor. a great fall/winter beer. i wouldnít have one all the time, but a nice change of pace.
