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.

5/10/12 notes: draft. Dark pour with pillowy white head and lacing. Aroma is sharply perfumy hoppy elements of spicy mint, flowers, pith and smoke. Flavor is toasted, charred malts walloped with spicy, leafy hops. Flavor intensity is robust, approaching Stone 15th, but not quite. Really fantastic stuff and a delight to drink, if not necessarily to quaff.

Bomber on a Friday afternoon at the house. Never met a FW beer that I didn't like, and this is no exception. Hoppy like an IPA, but not overly hoppy, which does not work in a black IPA. Nice malty balance, which defines the best beers of this style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One bomber, pours dark and thick like a stout... damn close to a stout with a creamy thick head. The rye is a nice touch. Enjoyed this a lot.

jredmond (6073) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2012 Bottle. Pours a deeP black with nice thick head that dissipates into creamy brown lacing. Aroma is super fresh, spicy skunky hops. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of roast, smoke and light fresh hop.

mike12da (75) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 12, 2012
Nice deep rich brown color, not quite black. Huge aroma of everything you would expect: rye, malt, and hops. One of the best smelling beers I’ve ever had. Taste is outstanding, though I wouldn’t mind a bit more punch to match up with the aroma. This is a beautiful beer.
