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.

GOOD LORD! That is a lot of Rye! Look I get it, it even says it in the title but holy nutburger that is some serious Rye Spice. Aroma is hops. first and foremost most the typical West Coast style, lots of grapefruits citrus etc. hint of pine. App: black with beige head and nice fine lacing. Taste is almost entirely dominated by RYE. Initial hint is hops but that precedes an enormous RYE bomb. Palate is thick spicy and .... wait for it.... RYE- ey. Overall it was a bit hard to get through a bomber of this. Definitely not my face and a bit curious what all the love is about...

Nice citrus and rye aroma, pours an opaque black with a full light tan head. Very nice flavor, with the spicy rye working with the roasted malts and the hops finishing bitter. Nice long lingering roasted/bitter finish. This is a really good entry in the Black IPA realm, if you like Rye.

This one lives up to the rating, wow! Pours deep brown with a fluffy tan head. Inviting aroma of rye and caramel. The rye takes an edge off the hops and makes for a really smooth flavor in this one. Finish is slightly hoppy, but not bitter. Very nice brew.

Pours a dark brown with a very tan head that doesn’t last. Typical of FW, there is a huge amount of citrus/grapefruit and some pine in the nose. The beer is pretty heavy on the tongue, with some sweetness and stickiness. This beer is well balanced with a spectrum of malt flavor from chocolate to roasted and a kick of Rye and hops in the finish. No doubt this is a FULL flavor beer. Well done FW.

ben4321 (4037) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Half Time, 10/12/12

Aroma: The nose has some nice pine hops, a little citrus, sweet/roasted malts, and rye
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small, light brown head and some medium lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, lightly roasty, and with a smooth, medium hop bitterness
Palate: It is medium bodied, has a smooth, creamy feel, a soft carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This one works pretty well for sure. They didn’t do anything crazy here, just made a solid, enjoyable Black Rye IPA. The components are all basically what you’d expect, but they all work really well together. It has an especially good feel/drinkability.

Aroma is dark malts, piney hops and a big spicy edge. The flavor is deeply malty, citrus/fruit and a tart/tangy in the finish.

Awesome balance in this beer. Seamlessly runs the spectrum from citrus, to spicy, to chocolate. Long, hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amazing beer. One of my top 5, all time. Super great blend IBU, aroma. Better than Stone’s Sublimely Self-Righteous, and that’s saying quite a bit. Let’s hope they increase production. Tasted only in bottle.

Bottle split. The aroma is awesome. Gorgeous hop aroma. The appearance is dark brown to black. The taste starts off hoppy and holds a great hop flavor through out. Some darkness is present in the flavor, but the hop flavor conceals it in the best way. Overall, this beer is fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
