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 a solid black color with a huge creamy tan head that persists forever before impaling itself to the sides of the glass. Smells of hops, no really, piney citrus and resin with a hint of green onion. There’s a faint roasty bready malt aroma that attempts to provide some balance but is really only there for show. The flavor hits with a hint of malt first. Caramel, bread, and chocolate are quickly pushed aside by a solid hit of citrus and resinous hop flavor. The chocolate comes back adds a bit of spice and lingers a bit in a sweet resinous finish. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. Very nice India dark ale ale or hoppy porter, very tasty with great aroma I really enjoyed this!

Dogbrick (10695) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
This beer pours brownish-black with a medium tan head that recedes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, herbal hops and pine. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, piney hops, citrus and rye. The finish is roasty with an herbal and floral hops aftertaste that leaves a lingering bitterness behind. Good beer overall.

keepersj12 (3036) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2012
This pours black with a creamy, lacing white head. The citrus and pine aroma hits first with a sweet malt scent coming as it warms. The flavor has a nice roast malt, slightly sweet start and then a big hop presence. Very complex, incredibly sooth and dry.

750 ml bottle. Pours black with about three fingers of tan head. Dark hop odor. Some raisin and brown sugar that also goes with a slight hop kick (but not as strong as you’d think). Nice sweet beer that’s not as dark as you’d expect

Draft at Maria’s. Pours a nearly black, deep dark brown with off white head. Nose is a lot like the other "Jacks". Aromatic hops, faint cocoa, citrus and resin. Very hop forward. On tasting, super dank hops. Fresh a bright. Citrus and resiny. More pine driven. Faint sweetness, dry finish. The rye isn’t a huge factor, faint grainy note? Great BIPA!
