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.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 22 oz bottled on 11/20/12. Almost black with a thick off-white head that lingered a bit and left spectacular lacing. Smells mostly citric and floral, with some earthy, pine notes as well as some wheat and rye. Medium-bodied, creamy, and smooth with a pleasant, unfiltered texture. Exceptionally well-balanced flavor of hop bitterness, dark malts and spicy rye. Hoppy, rich finish with a touch of sweetness. Complex and very drinkable. A phenomenal IPA.

Big black beer, lacy foam cap. Aromas of roast malt, coffee, fruity hops and a little mint. Very well balanced between the dark malt and hop flavors. Again, in the finish, the hop bitters meld well with the dry malt bitterness. I can’t seem to pick out the rye, but don’t care. Love it.

tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Served to a house snifter at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL., showing a black/brown hue, a billowy layer of light tan head froth, and good cling to the patches of curtainy lacing. The aroma had a pleasant, sweet citrus nature to it, followed by a touch of resin and rye spiciness. With a medium+ body, and moderate alcohol presence, the flavor highlighted an earthy hop bitterness that retained it’s presentable roasted & hop bite at the end, along with a complementary dryness. The rye interplayed well. Very impressed! Next time, on tap and snifter served at Lunar Brewing Co.. The citrus in the aroma was grapefruit-like, and a touch of dank grain scent was also noticeable. Bitterness again was very lingering, strong, but non harsh.

Bomber. Super hoppy nose at first. Very fruity-primarily apricot, some pineapple. This one was better at first, but lost that hop punch quickly as it warmed.

Pours black with a huge hop nose. At first a lot of roast but finishes smooth and sweet like an ipa. Might be my favorite black ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Murky, dark brown with a tan head. Powerful citrus, spice, rye, roasted malts, bitter, rust, grapefruit, light sweetness. I just can’t get into this style. I think if this had a normal IPA malt bill it would top-notch. I can see why BIPA lovers rate this highly, though.

22 oz. bottle shared by beerpig317. Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma is earthy and citrus hops, some spicy rye notes, roasted malts and a splash of chocolate. The flavor has everything from the nose; earthy and citrus hops, some roasted malt character, chocolate and spicy rye to the finish. This was very well done; definitely a black IPA and not a porter dressing as a black IPA.

holy crap Firestone Walker nailed it with Woo key! Big viscous black as night coffee pour with a massive latte foam head and a ton of sticky lacing all over the place. The aroma is gigantic with a super intense roasted base and notes of smoke, earthy spice and a big NW hop firm with pine resin. Just a huge aroma. Fuill bodied and almost syrupy with definite sweetness and a major roasted malt. Smokey and a bit of an ashy earthen note towards the finish lend to big bitterness. Juicy hop resins with big citrus and floral notes. Overall not well balanced but a super tasty brew.
