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.

Reviewed 9/29. Thanks to Momar42 for the bottle! About 6 oz poured into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is a one finger offwhite color with somewhat thick bubbles and good retention. S: Fairly citrusy, but with that green piny note to it - Simcoe hops, perhaps? The darker malts donít really come through, but the citrusy profile redeems things. T: Much like the aroma, the citrusy flavors come through strongly. The first few sips are a bit questionable in its balance and drinkability, but once this opens up, it becomes quite pleasant in conjunction with the rye malts. Further sips show some chocolate in its profile. This *is* an older bottle, but still very enjoyable, if a little lacking in complexity. M: Pretty dry - thank you rye malts - and drinkable. Itís not too heavy or light either way in terms or body, nor is it overcarbonated. O: Itís another "man, this could have been AMAZING" fresh situation with this. Right now, though, itís still really damn good. Iíll be on the lookout for a fresh bottle/keg of this.

Malty with a bitter aftertaste. Hops show through as you continue drinking. Very interesting beer. The hops show through after the initial malty bitter flavor. Well balanced, best rye IPA Iíve tasted yet.

BillKismet (3520) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Appears like a glass brimming with liquid chocolate and a thin white verdisgris cover. Wonderful piney hop nose surrounded in a layered forest of clean, roasty black barley. Leather and medium-dark chocolate notes. Entrancing. The body is piney and boozy. Certainly more rough around the edges than the aroma presaged. Sticky roast adheres to the back of the palate. Ends with an off-key, sour-bitter twang.

Hmmmmm, really didnít see this like everyone else. I now see it is a Rye brew which rarely appeals to me but this just didnít hit the mark for me. Hopefully I get to try again. Brown with a tan head, lots of lacing. Weird musty aroma. I found the flavor unpleasant as well Looked good but I just didnít appreciate this.

On tap @ Stone brewery. Dark brown, tan head, generous lace. Equally malty (roast, soy, bitter chocolate) and hoppy (pine, guava, light mint), with a distinct spiciness from the rye. Terrific balance, boldly flavoured, really really nice.

GOOD LORD! That is a lot of Rye! Look I get it, it even says it in the title but holy nutburger that is some serious Rye Spice. Aroma is hops. first and foremost most the typical West Coast style, lots of grapefruits citrus etc. hint of pine. App: black with beige head and nice fine lacing. Taste is almost entirely dominated by RYE. Initial hint is hops but that precedes an enormous RYE bomb. Palate is thick spicy and .... wait for it.... RYE- ey. Overall it was a bit hard to get through a bomber of this. Definitely not my face and a bit curious what all the love is about...

Nice citrus and rye aroma, pours an opaque black with a full light tan head. Very nice flavor, with the spicy rye working with the roasted malts and the hops finishing bitter. Nice long lingering roasted/bitter finish. This is a really good entry in the Black IPA realm, if you like Rye.
