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.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
This beer pours brownish-black with a medium tan head that recedes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, herbal hops and pine. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, piney hops, citrus and rye. The finish is roasty with an herbal and floral hops aftertaste that leaves a lingering bitterness behind. Good beer overall.

keepersj12 (2561) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2012
This pours black with a creamy, lacing white head. The citrus and pine aroma hits first with a sweet malt scent coming as it warms. The flavor has a nice roast malt, slightly sweet start and then a big hop presence. Very complex, incredibly sooth and dry.

Bottle. Pours- Black with tan head. Smells- SOOooo good! Extremely floral, herbal, very full smelling, slightly smokey Tastes- Chocolate smoke, hoppy bitter finish. Really balanced, nothing overpowers anything else, just really compliments each other. Overall- One of the best beers I have had in quite awhile, very impressed. Very VERY good!

naivepegasus (329) - USA - SEP 8, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours black with about three fingers of tan head. Dark hop odor. Some raisin and brown sugar that also goes with a slight hop kick (but not as strong as you’d think). Nice sweet beer that’s not as dark as you’d expect

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Draft at Maria’s. Pours a nearly black, deep dark brown with off white head. Nose is a lot like the other "Jacks". Aromatic hops, faint cocoa, citrus and resin. Very hop forward. On tasting, super dank hops. Fresh a bright. Citrus and resiny. More pine driven. Faint sweetness, dry finish. The rye isn’t a huge factor, faint grainy note? Great BIPA!

callmemickey (2268) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Deep brown body, moderate sized pale khaki head, streaky lacing. Nose is resinous with some grapefruit, grainy malts, roast, and nuttiness. Flavor is similar with a bit of spiciness and graininess from the rye bill. Otherwise a pleasantly complex roasted malt profile and resin/citric hop bill. Medium bodied, assertive carbonation, clean, bitter finish.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2012
Deep brown pour with a thick light brown head. The nose is loaded with bright resinous hops over a rich dark malt base. Some definite cocoa and chocolate malts through the middle with a lingering roasted dryness. Pine and some chewy sweetness along with a tropical fruit flavour - particularly as the beer warms a bit. Some sticky hop resin is also accentuated by the sweeter malt. I wouldn’t say I get a ton of rye character in this but there is a suggestion of spice. Lots of coffee character as it warms further. Man - this is solid stuff.
