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.

One bomber, pours dark and thick like a stout... damn close to a stout with a creamy thick head. The rye is a nice touch. Enjoyed this a lot.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2012 Bottle. Pours a deeP black with nice thick head that dissipates into creamy brown lacing. Aroma is super fresh, spicy skunky hops. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of roast, smoke and light fresh hop.

Nice deep rich brown color, not quite black. Huge aroma of everything you would expect: rye, malt, and hops. One of the best smelling beers I’ve ever had. Taste is outstanding, though I wouldn’t mind a bit more punch to match up with the aroma. This is a beautiful beer.

Pours chestnet with beige head. Nose is wet grassy hop with slight floral notes. Smooth and mellow on the tongue with syrupy malt moving to lively lemon, lime, and lemon grass hops. Well balanced and well crafted.

thefederalist (285) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a large, puffy off-white head. Aroma of pine and grass and alcohol. The flavor is fairly bitter with a clean malt backbone that turns slightly roasty in the finish. Nice one.

sneaks2210 (46) - New York, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pours an opaque black with a nice creamy khaki head. The aroma is massively piney, loads of floral and citrus notes. Some touches of chocolate and a kind of breadiness. The taste hits you with an abundance of hop bitterness, very piney. Later in the mouth you do pick up some roasted qualities, but they are dominated by the juicy hops. Has a really nice mouthfeel, finishes dry. Very complex. The best Black IPA I’ve had. Firestone continues to blow me away!
