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.

Bottle last week, pours an opaque black with creamy thick off white head and lacing. Aromas are great tropical resins and piney citrus hops. Taste is tangy hops, rye. citrus fuel, and a light burnt toffee in the finish to balance out the dank hops. Well carbonated. Medium bodied. Delicious black ipa from FW.

22 oz bottle shared by beastiefan2k via JB. The pour is a lightly clouded brown ruby with a small off white head. The aroma is big pineapple citrus, some roast, though the nose is mostly about the hops. Pops with freshness. The taste reverses the nose, showing the roast first, than moves into the big citrus pineapple. The two flavors play together nicely, good integration. The palate is medium bodied, with soft carbonation. Bitter, dry finish. Nice take on a roasty IPA. Thanks for sharing this one Eugene.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Une autre offrande mémorable de la part de Firestone. Je n’ai pas vraiment pu apprécier l’apport du seigle et l’explosion des saveurs est certainement une des raisons. Agrumes et malts rôtis sur la même longueur d’onde.

MartinT (8281) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 My Bottom Line :
This complex Black IPA is the stage for the blooming of citrus fruit and flowers within caramel, chocolate and roastiness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy veil of foam decorates the darkest brown.
-The bottle conditioning job is excellent.
-All flavors are levelled and ever-so-scrumptious.
-Vanilla notes are also there, as is bread.

Bottles.

22 ounce bottle thanks to Michelle. Big hoppy aromatic nose. Bitter and intense. Creamy with chocolate. One of the better black IPAs, for sure.

On tap at Tap and Mallet. Pours pitch black with thick foamy brown head that laces the glass well. aroma is amazing and out of this world for hoppy. Taste has hops up front but that dissipates quickly and gives way to the rye and medium bitter aftertaste. Good stuff!

Well done. Aroma is dark chocolate charcoaly rye and citrusy hops. Dark brown to black appearance. Taste is of dark malt and more citrus hops. Medium to full bodied in the palate. Finishes Very smooth with nice dry and sweet finish. Excellent.

Doesn’t taste like a typical black ipa. Which makes it outstanding for the style. No gawkey cocoa hits or hops that feel out of place. Just a good hoppy beer.

This delightful beer is dark, but not too dark, for a black IPA. Okay... never mind. It’s pretty darned black. It has a really interesting pinkish-white head. The aroma is just like an IPA, deceiving, with caramel malts dominating. As dark as this is, there is practically no roasted malt presence, no chocolate, no harshness in the nose. They got the black without subjecting you to roast! This is now, officially, my favorite black IPA. In the mouth, a woody, unique (but tame) roasted malt character controls your destiny. Alcohol and sweetness merge maturely. I’m not surprised that this is such a nice beer... a perfect job from Firestone Walker, as always
