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.

Bomber->shaker. Deep brown with thick offwhite head. A chewy hop bonanza, like a great imperial IPA. Very good.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2013
Pours a nice dark colorwitha fizzy off-white head. Aroma is citrus hoppy no real roasted aroma. Flavor is medium sweet with a nice citrus/piney hoppiness flavor. Finish is mild but medium sweet a little alcoholic. Carbonation is above average and mouthfeel is fizzy. Overall this is a delicious beer.

Crash_the_dog (163) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - APR 10, 2013
Jet black with a rich creamy white head, this beauty slaps you across the face with hoppy rye flavor. It offers a velvety mouthfeel coupled with a lightly spicy nose, and begs to be slammed, in spite of an ABV that requires moderation. I know that "black rye IPA" is a made-up style, but Wookie Jack is perfection within that made-up style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (7286) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic, lightly to moderately astringent. Quite simple in the nose...tons of raw hops, but at least there is enough malt character to keep it from being utterly one-dimensional. In the mouth it’s surprisingly sour, and add to that the abrasive bitterness and astringency, and it’s hard to drink much. Pretty crude and rough, but there are certainly worse examples in this genre.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle pours opaque black with big light tan head and serious lace. Aromas of wet hops, citrus, pine, sweet malts, toasted grain and rye. Medium body, wet hop character lingers. generous bitterness balanced with the rye spice. Finishes lightly sweet big hop character and rye tartness.

thegreenrooster (3977) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 3, 2013
Pour is a almost black with a large tan head. Aroma is a blast of fresh juicy hops. A minor roast is in the backround. Flavor is again a fresh hop with a decent but not over the top spicy rye. Finish leaves some roasted black malt with maybe a bit of dark chocolate on the tounge. This was a well hopped dark IPA with more emphasis on the hops then the malts used and that’s not a complaint.

Bästa svartipan. Förmodligen för att beskan är låg. Världsklass. Friska dofter. Lätt i kropp

Pat , c’est toujours un plaisir de déguster une bière avec un grand maitre Jedi comme toi ha ha !Le liquide est brun foncé quasi noir ( un look impérial stout ) le col est moyen et s’estompe en écume de mer, accompagné d’un anneau de dentelle.Au nez,un mélanges de fruits frais,de lime (marmelade),Au goût , crémeux,onctueux suivi d’une amertume qui assèche la bouche et ce termine par une fin torréfiée.

Bottle. Taste is a perfect blend of hops, rye, malt and booze. Maybe the best black IPA I have ever had.
