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.

This beer is one of my favorites. It’s fairly inexpensive, has 8.3 ABV, unsure of the IBUs, tastes great, has no bitter after taste like other Black IPAs.

very black, with maybe some deep auburn when held to the light. About one finger of off white creamy head. Aroma is all dark Malts and rye. Nice biting bitterness, with flavors of deep espresso roastyness and hints of rye. Very well balanced and enjoyable.

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - MAY 29, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Pours deep brown/black with thin foam. Leaves lots of lacing. Although the citrus hops are apparent, they’re not overwhelming. Black malts and hop mix well. I’m not a big IPA fan so I’m pleased with this beer. (rerated 11/11/13)

Dixonian (1561) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2012
22oz bottle. Near black pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is spicy rye, pine hops, and roasted malt. Mouthfeel and carbonation are spot on - I really enjoy how the pine and citrus hops play off the roast and rye. Well done!

bytemesis (3169) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Tap. Pours deep brown almost black with a small tan head and light lacing. Aroma is all IPA - strong citrus and pine, with a backing of roasted malts. Taste mimics aroma; grapefruit and pine dominates over a body of roasted malt, with hints of chocolate. Rich and creamy in the mouth. Nice beer.

Sampled on 4/28/2012. This black IPA pours an eclipse black color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized beige foamy head, with nice retention. The aroma is roasty malt, a little chocolate and a little coffee, some citrus and some spiciness. A medium bodied black IPA. The malts are roasty, carmely, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and citrusy. Nice rye spiciness. Nice carbonation. Roasty, citrusy and spicy. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bomber thanks to Craig. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. A rich nose of roasted malts, chocolate and light fruity hops. The flavor is similar: rich sweet and bittersweet chocolate, light bitterness, fruit, spicy rye. Very good. Mellow, like Dubhe but a bit less.

Black with a bit of off white head. Aroma is roast and citrus and so is the taste with some more developed coffee notes. $6/22oz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
