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.

wonderful example of the style. Deep dark black and an aroma is citrus hope and pine tree. This delivers on the great one two punch of hops up front with the rich roasted malt behind. Drank down easy for an over 8% abv beer. recommended for any black ipa lover.

PhilDBrewer (50) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Pours very deep brown, almost black, with frothy egg shell head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, roasted malt, and orange - very complex - very nice. Taste is much the same. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated. Overall, another excellent offering from FW.

obguthr (5242) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Grapefruit peel, spruce and pine needles on the nose. Black, medium yellow head effusive carbonation. Charcoal up front, malt bitterness. Licorice is briefly at midpalate before an onslaught of piney hops. Fizziness detracts. Wonderful beer, with distinct transitions showcasing malt bitterness and hop bitterness in separate phases. Well crafted.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Subtle earthy pine, skunky herb, caramel and orange nuances greet the nose.. Followed by a rich, round, luxurious palate filled with sweet roasted malt, coffee, herbs, orange juice, candied citrus zest and grapefruit juice. Very well balanced malt/hop combination. Great play between hops and malt from start to finish. Bitterness is tamed by the sweet malts. Very friendly malt characteristics, yet unmistakable hoppy core. Very enjoyable. Notes of sweet, bitter citrus rind and earthy coffee linger in the finish. Yum! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Pours black with a tan head. Leafy green and citrus hop aromas. Smells like black double jack. Chocolate, coffee, and citrus hop flavors. Finishes with orange peel on the palate. Overall a fantastic black IPA! Way to go Firestone Walker!

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2012
A black colored beer, with a beige head. The aroma of fruits, fresh orange, dark makt and hop. The taste is fruity, citrus and orange, bitter hop and some spices. The aftertaste is a little sweet, with bitter hop.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2012
22oz bottle, dated 8/9/12, from grape & gourmet. pours a dusky, dark, cocoa brown capped by a rich, dense khaki head that leaves thick sheets of lace on the glass. aroma is outstanding with notes of fresh pine forest, orange zest, and caramel malts backed by mild roast, baker’s chocolate, and toasted pumpernickel bread with subtle hints of coffee and earth as it warms. flavor is truly wonderful, definitely where this beer shines, with a beautiful balance of orange citrus, pine esters, and grassy hops up front backed by bitter chocolate, roasted malts, mocha latte, and burnt tofffee with hints of vanilla, pineapple, and pie crusts adding complexity through the middle. palate is medium bodied with smooth carbonation and an immense finish of bitter hops, semi-sweet chocolate, and roasted malts. overall, this is certainly one of the best black IPA’s out there.

Bottle pours black nice head. Smells tastes of pine roasted chocolate pine caramel a bit booze really solid for the style just enough thickness making it enjoyable texture. A solid beer. You could have two bombers and the dark roasted taste still would be enjoyable.
