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, from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass, shared with Cole. Pours clear black, thick pale tan head, phenomenal lacing. Nose is gorgeous tropical fruit, remarkable hoppiness, with peach, ginger, quince, rosewater, and cold cream. Flavours of tight spicy rye, soya sauce, tart grapefruit and lychee, toast, roast. Damn this is nice! I try to be one of the cool kids, but I just love Black IPA.

Bottle. Strong bitter hopiness on the nose. Beautiful pour - black with a foamy tan head and relatively thick lacing. Great black ipa flavors, coffee, bitter, some grapefruit, strong pine & hops. The finish could be a little longer, but now I’m being picky.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Nose carries a nice bit of roast and chocolate malt along with a bit of rye and some nice citrus and earthy-pine hop notes. Flavor is hoppy with a nice underlying bitterness and moderate malt sweetness. Good rye component as well as dark malt sweetness. Medium-full body with medium bitterness. Quite smooth. Very nice beer.

I was very surprised by every aspect of this beer except that overall it’s excellent. Not your average black ipa, a style that is currently being overdone by a lot of breweries. FW nailed something special here. The aroma almost threw me off and I wasn’t excited by it. The black syruppy look was enticing but also intimidating. The flavor is amazing. packed with rye and hops, i can’t believe how well they both shine through. Kudos to FW

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUN 11, 2012
22oz bottle from a trade with futuraxz - thanks bud. Drank fresh, about two weeks after I got the bottle. Dark brown to black pour with a nice creamy light brown head. Aroma is bursting with fresh citra hops - lots of mango, pineapple and orange/tangerine, almost in a sense of Turkish delights as is very sweet and pungent. A nice and delicate malt profile that provides dark bread, caramel and cocoa nibs. Just the right balance between the up front hops and the cozy dark malty profile. The taste os very similar to the aroma, that means lots of fresh hoppiness, mainly in the tropical fruity side of the spectrum with additional grapefruit and lemon zest notes. The maltiness is even less pronounced in the taste, leaving only faint hints of roasted malta and burnt caramel on the palate. It turns into a roasted bitterness in the after taste that goes hand in hand with the dank, hoppy bitterness. Maybe a bit of astringent rye spiciness, but definitely not bursting with rye qualities. Wow, this truly is a world class Black IPA.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 draft @ Moon and Sixpence in PDX. Really dark with a frothy head. Thin and easy drinking. Well balanced hop bitterness with dark beer characteristics. REALLY good.

Sampled at Churchkey. Dark brown, thin white head. Big nose, minus, hop pellets, grapefruit, big citrus. Smells like a double IPA. Flavor is nice, big citrus, apple sweetness, grapefruit, pine. Full bodied, bitter finish.

BoostIPA (1186) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Pours a cloudy very deep brown, almost black with a tan 2 finger head. Notes of spicy rye, bitter hops and malts dominate the nose. Mouthfeel is very full, thick and slick. Nicely spicy and bitter on the tounge. Very creamy. Excellent blackIPA.
