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 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 (3042) - 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.

Pours a very dark brown with a quickly dissipating off white head. Smell is citrus hops, pine, and rye. Taste is the same, and it is very well balanced. This beer is delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wonderful example of the style. Deep dark black and an aroma is citrus hope and pine tree. This delivers on the great one two punch of hops up front with the rich roasted malt behind. Drank down easy for an over 8% abv beer. recommended for any black ipa lover.

Pours very deep brown, almost black, with frothy egg shell head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, roasted malt, and orange - very complex - very nice. Taste is much the same. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated. Overall, another excellent offering from FW.

obguthr (3750) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Grapefruit peel, spruce and pine needles on the nose. Black, medium yellow head effusive carbonation. Charcoal up front, malt bitterness. Licorice is briefly at midpalate before an onslaught of piney hops. Fizziness detracts. Wonderful beer, with distinct transitions showcasing malt bitterness and hop bitterness in separate phases. Well crafted.
