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.

Pours midnight 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.

Beautifully fresh grapefruit, pines, wheat and rye on the aroma. Color is pitch black with a massive brown foam at the top. Taste is bittering hops in the front falling back into a perfect toasty malt with flavors of coffe, spices, bread, brown sugar and a boozey finish. Overall, an absolutely fantastic brew with massive complex flavoring, perfect balance and full body. Iíd give this an A+ rating. A must try!

piscator34 (2042) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 19, 2012
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Near black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of tropical fruit, coal, and dark chocolate. The tropical hop notes continue on in the mouth, along with more dark chocolate, and spicy coffee elements. Dry on the palate, with a nice balance between the bitterness of the hops and the roast of the dark malts. Less of a hop bomb than some of the other Black IPAs Iíve had recently, but satisfying in its balance.

Draft at Churchkey. Very dark brown pour with a good looking vivacious cream-colored head. Very fruit forward nose with gorgeous grapefruit, orange, lemon, and even touches of mango, along with that nice earthy roast. Darker profile on the tongue, with increased bitterness and earth, loam, roasted malt, and bitter chocolate mixing with those lovely sweet fruity hop characteristics. Beautiful palate, roasty and bitter but drinkable. Awesome.

Leighton (13270) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle during the Semi-Final Tasting at my place, London. Big thanks to Bruce for dragging this beast from the USA. Pours dark brown with a medium, beige foam head. Soft pine in the nose with toasty malts and modest roast. Medium to big sweet flavor with sticky pine, decent roast, toasty caramel and some burnt wood. Medium bodied with average, highly creamy carbonation. Fairly resinous pine to finish with moderate roast, faint cocoa, light ooze and toast. Very sweet but still nicely balanced. Some notes of grapefruit in here, too. Good one.

Draft at the Pine Box. Rich black, foamy head. Coffee-cocoa. Rich hopping. Great black IPA, big and balanced, and interesting. Very bitter coffee and hop.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2012
On tap at maxís in Baltimore. Dark black pour with a tan head. Aroma is over the top sticky hops. Citrus, resin, slight dark malt character. The hops are hte big standout here. Flavor is a great balance of citrus hops, resin, dank stickiness and a good roasty malt kick. Best example of a black IPA Iíve come across. Tasty.

Bottle at a tasting at Paulís. Pours a clear light brown with cola highlights under a thin beige head that hits the edges of the glass. Roast and a bit of cocoa on the nose. Chocolate, cocoa, warming alcohol. Spicy malt, a bit of roast, cocoa and chocolate. Long spicy and malty finish.
