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.

Keg at Brewdog Camden, London. A black coloured pour with a small off white head on top. Hoppy, citrus, pine aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus, slightly roasty, slightly bitter. grapefruit. Very easy to drink despite its strength. Nice one.

650 ml bottle. Thanks tiong!
Pours a black colour with a large, white, lacy head. Aroma is very, very intense with floral hops, spruce and some caramel notes. Flavour of roasted malts, floral hops, spruce, toffee, some ash, pepper and rye bread. Rye or bread doesnít dominate, which is definitely a good thing in an IPA. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a bitter, malty, bready finish. Very nicely hopped. More please.

650ml bottle from a trade, thanks stawn!

Pours pitch black with a white bubbly head. Great aroma of fresh exotic fruits, grassy hops, pine, lemon, citrus, hints of roasty malts and coffee. Taste is fruity and slightly roasty with a lot of exotic fruitness, grassy hops, pine, hints of rye and chocolate. Finish is roasty with some nice hoppy notes and lingering fruitness, slight hints of rye. Nice, quite fruity and tasty Black IPA.

Itís got a finishing taste of Rye. This beer is not too hoppy/bitter. The Rye, malts, & citrus notes tame the hoppiness. Itís pretty balanced. Iím glad I pulled the trigger on a bottle. Iím impressed but not shocked, Firestone Walker makes good stuff.

Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Bottled on 7/6/12. Pours dark dark brown to black with a medium beige head with decent retention. Nice hoppy presence in the nose--grapefruit, lemon, pine, all the good stuff. The malt is more subdued, but itís there, too. The rye is pretty noticeable. Taste is bittersweet and sour with a lingering bitter finish. This definitely leans more toward straight IPA with the roasted malts kind of in the background. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Very good--possibly the best black IPA Iíve had.

First, this beer smells like cat piss. Doesnít taste that way though. Tastes of heavy citrus hops over burnt, coffee, and a slight hint of chocolate. Very thick, low carbonation. Aside from the smell, this is an excellent beer.

From the tap poured a dark brown color with a small amount of head. Nice toasted malty flavor with a lingering bitter finish.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Pours dark brown with a frothy light khaki head. Aroma of pine needles, wet grass, and tangerine peel. The flavor beautifully combines smoky malts with pine and citrus hops in a way that is at first bold with its hop bite but quickly is met with the dark roasted malts that offer smoothness and complexity. The lingering impression on the palate is a perfect balance of hop bitterness and char from the malt that lets you know it is still there but thankfully the two flavor profiles keep each other in check. This is as perfect as this style gets.

ReggieDunlap (3030) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Pours black with a thick tan head...nice lacing. Aroma is fresh...floral pine with a bit of notable rye. Flavor has very nice rye and spiciness...fresh pine notes...a bit of roastiness. Mouthfeel is full and silky/creamy with a rye/piney finish. Nice pine without getting medicinal and great rye spiciness.
