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 from BevMo dated 11/20/12. Dark brown pour. Long lasting tan head. Intense aroma of ruby red grapefruit. Smells just like a fresh cut ruby red grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit, sugar and rye. If it wasnít for the color I might not know this was a Black IPA. The usual roasted flavor of dark malts is not present in this beer. With that being said, this is an excellent, well balanced beer. Iíd say if you are a lover of grapefruit, as I am, this is definitely a beer that you will like.

By far my favorite BIPA. Aroma was big grapefruit and pine with some light roast in there. Pour is dark brown with a nice fluffy head. A touch of rye and roast come through more so in the taste behind citrusy hops to make a nicely balanced, not over-the-top BIPA. Great!

Draft, at house 1000 beers. Black color, small head. Aroma of fresh citrus and roasted malt. Medium bitterness (at least). Roasted malt, citrus, slight dark fruit in taste and some pine. Big bitter finish. Enjoyed.

On draught at Whole Foods Chandler. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is loads of floral, citrusy hops and a bit of roast. Taste is sweet malts with some roast and plenty of bright hops and spice. Lighter bodied with an oily texture. Good stuff. It seems like more breweries are figuring out how to make a nicely balanced black IPA.

Bomber from Whole Foods, Venice. Was very happy to see this one still floating around, as Iíd been hoping to give it a shot. Rambunctious inky black pour with a vigorous head, sits fat and filmy throughout the beer. Nose was, as hoped, more intriguing than most black IPAs and the spiciness of the rye came over as something like glue between the other disparate elements. That much was true even a bit more in the taste, and the citrus and rye didnít feel compromised by the spicy dark malts. One of the better instances of this style Iíve had.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2015 Poured from the bomber this beer combines my two favorite things, rye and black ipa. And rye not!? Aroma is mild and mostly rye. Flavor is moderately bittered. Prett y citrusythough. Palate is nice, medium bodied with a long rye finish. Overall decent beer.

22 oz. bottle. Pitch black, with a medium, beige head, with nice lacing. Light roasted malts, resin, butterscotch, and rye bread. A little sweet, with a mild, smooth bitterness and a very light sour note in the finish. Light to medium body, hard, and a little thin. Overall, this is a very balanced and pleasant beer, with a weak palate, but good aroma.

This poured a medium brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was herbal and earthy hops, light citrus, and mild roast and spice too. Flavor was a nice blend of fruity hops and roast. The dryness of the rye really went well with the herbal notes of the hops.
