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.

Bomber. Pours a dark, almost opaque brown. Nose is outstanding -- dank like a catty basement, with a Christmas tree thrown in for effect. Light brown head with good retention. Palate is dry, slightly spicy, lots of piney hops and some passion fruit. Finishes pretty clean with a lingering easy bitterness. Goes down nice, albeit slightly warm from the ABV. Firestone-Walker hasn’t let me down yet,

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2013 Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with average, fizzy off-white head; short retention and good lacing. Aroma is roast and cereal malts, rye, figs, earthy hops, some dark chocolate, and faint coffee. Flavor is balanced rye, dark malts, and earthy hops (medium body); smooths out towards the end with a nice, subtle bitter coffee finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

VsXsV (3001) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with huge light tan head. What is it with BIPAs and huge heads?! Aroma of citrus, white pepper, light pine, biscuit, some chocolate, tangerine, orange marmalade, fresh flowery hops and grapefruit. Really grows on you, starts out a bit one dimensional but gets more and more complex. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of white pepper, biscuit, citrus and flowers. The rye really shines through. Medium bodied with nice, soft carbonation and smooth mouthfeel from the rye. Very nicely balanced beer, the rye really adds something to it.

No head, black pour, smells of hoppy alcohol, tastes of a bitter rye beer. Not a fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy Deez nuts

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2015 At Maproom. Very strange. I enjoyed it but intense hops and sharp spiciness of the rye made it a almost challenging drink to the taste buds. Complex so you had to think about all the flavors. Serving: Tap

22 oz. MMWWAAAHHHHGGGHHHHH. Ok, that was my wookey impression. It pours a very dark brown with a tan, frothy head. Aroma of strong pine and citrus hops, Mild resin as well as some herbal tones. The malt manifests it self in in roast, caramel, mild burnt wood. The flavor is bitter in the forefront, strong pine and citrus notes. WIth the chocolatey and roasted malt, I get a bit of chocolate covered orange. Mild spiciness from the rye as well as a touch of earth. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, nice carbonation. Overall, this is a nice Black IPA.

Hides it’s nice dark roasty backbone extremely well, nice dark malt character balanced perfectly with sweet hop notes leading to a nice light, almost lemony finish.
