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.

Draft at Monk’s Cafe in Philadelphia, PA. Pours a dark brown. almost black color with faint mahogany edges and a two finger beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of lace left behind. Sweet floral aroma with spicy rye, malt, earthy and citrus hops.  Subtle roast but the rye character adds another dimension. Some grassy pine and slight citrus but the nose is dominated by spicy rye and dark malts.   On the fuller end of medium bodied with a nice balance of resinous, earthy hops, sweet and roasted malt and spicy rye.  Again, the rye adds complexity with level of spicy swetness that counters the piny hops and roasted notes. Grassy and piny hops followed by spicy rye with roasted and sweet malts underneath.  Hints of chocolate, toast, coffee and oatmeal lingering into a dry finish with subtle heat.

Tasted on 8/12/12 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours very deep, nearly black, oily dark brown with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to average lace, leaving some thick residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is milk chocolate malt, coffee, pine resin hops, along with the signature spicy aroma of rye. The flavor is exactly the same, plenty of milk chocolate, coffee, spicy rye, and resin hops. The body is full with just under average carbonation and a long spicy rye, chocolate, coffee, and nicely bitter resin hops finish. This isn’t the hoppiest or maltiest Black IPA I have ever had, but it is the most balanced.

Poured into a snifter. 4.0 A: Black color. Three fingers of of tan, frothy head. Retention is very good and plenty of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Big citrusy hoppiness with emphasis on orange and pineapple. Light roastiness. Pleasant spicy earthiness from the rye. Smells pretty good. 4.0 T: As far as black IPAs go, this is one of the better ones. It’s not overly roasty nor is it overly bitter from the hops. Orange and pineapple citrus. Spicy rye. Light roastiness. Tasty. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and smooth. 4.0 D: Good beer among a wretched style. I don’t think I would have given such high scores if this was any other style, but so it is. Making a black IPA that is even drinkable is already above average and this is one of the better ones.

Bottle 6/22/12 date on the glass. Pour is a real dark mahogany brown in color with a covering of off white head that retained a nice ring. Aroma really comes across as an ipa, dry citrus rind, flowery resins, pine, underlying malt, and some light roast. Mouth feel is light and there is plenty of carbonation. Flavor does combine the hops and malt quite well. Medium bitterness, pine, citrus, I get the rye as well and it is done to a complementing level where it fits in to the bitterness nicely. I guess it never hurts to get a beer like this bottled a month ago but this is pretty kicking.

Hides it’s nice dark roasty backbone extremely well, nice dark malt character balanced perfectly with sweet hop notes leading to a nice light, almost lemony finish.

22 oz. MMWWAAAHHHHGGGHHHHH. Ok, that was my wookey impression. It pours a very dark brown with a tan, frothy head. Aroma of strong pine and citrus hops, Mild resin as well as some herbal tones. The malt manifests it self in in roast, caramel, mild burnt wood. The flavor is bitter in the forefront, strong pine and citrus notes. WIth the chocolatey and roasted malt, I get a bit of chocolate covered orange. Mild spiciness from the rye as well as a touch of earth. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, nice carbonation. Overall, this is a nice Black IPA.
