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.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Bomber at home. Pours black with two finger off-white head. Aroma is dry, bready. Taste is bitter, spicy, with crisp,dry finish. Too much age here - looking forward to trying it fresher.

One week old bottle back in fall ’12 into a Spiegelau Pilsner (?!, more like a slimmed Duvel tulip). Excellent ABA. Dark malts meet citrusy hops to form something special. What makes this unique is the creamy toffee malt layer which blends the dark characteristics and citrus nuances into an exponentially layered experience. Firestone smooth. Makes my brain tingle.

22oz bottle. Dark brown with a foamy light tan head. Aroma of citrus, coffee, cocoa and pine. Flavor is bitter hops, roasted coffee and spicy rye bread. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry finish. Good black IPA, would like to retry a fresher example.

Bomber from BevMo dated 11/20/12. Dark brown pour. Long lasting tan head. Intense aroma of ruby red grapefruit. Smells just like a fresh cut ruby red grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit, sugar and rye. If it wasn’t for the color I might not know this was a Black IPA. The usual roasted flavor of dark malts is not present in this beer. With that being said, this is an excellent, well balanced beer. I’d say if you are a lover of grapefruit, as I am, this is definitely a beer that you will like.

By far my favorite BIPA. Aroma was big grapefruit and pine with some light roast in there. Pour is dark brown with a nice fluffy head. A touch of rye and roast come through more so in the taste behind citrusy hops to make a nicely balanced, not over-the-top BIPA. Great!

Draft, at house 1000 beers. Black color, small head. Aroma of fresh citrus and roasted malt. Medium bitterness (at least). Roasted malt, citrus, slight dark fruit in taste and some pine. Big bitter finish. Enjoyed.

This beer was wonderful, almost like a roasty, extra-bitter double jack.

On draught at Whole Foods Chandler. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is loads of floral, citrusy hops and a bit of roast. Taste is sweet malts with some roast and plenty of bright hops and spice. Lighter bodied with an oily texture. Good stuff. It seems like more breweries are figuring out how to make a nicely balanced black IPA.

Bomber from Whole Foods, Venice. Was very happy to see this one still floating around, as I’d been hoping to give it a shot. Rambunctious inky black pour with a vigorous head, sits fat and filmy throughout the beer. Nose was, as hoped, more intriguing than most black IPAs and the spiciness of the rye came over as something like glue between the other disparate elements. That much was true even a bit more in the taste, and the citrus and rye didn’t feel compromised by the spicy dark malts. One of the better instances of this style I’ve had.
