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.

I was excited to try this one, since I have grown to be a FW fan in the last year or so. A fine aroma of pine, molasses, coffee, and floral hops. The dry, espresso-like taste contrasts a bit with the scent. It is a little bitter and acrid, with some charcoal, but the flavor is still fine. A good brew, but it doesnít belong in the top 1% and not one of FWís best.

I found this beer to be absolutely outstanding. Tons of hops, a solid strong body, a beautiful black color, easily in the top 3 of black ipas if not the best

Nice hoppy freshness, terrific aroma, smooth palate, great IPA flavor. Firestoneís cranked out another winner. Theyíre one of the best breweries out there.

teorn88 (5858) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Camden. Pours near opaque with a large, creamy and frothy tan head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is earthy and dank hops, toast, roast and coffee malt with raisins, figs, and plum fruity esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting dark malt, raisin and plum notes and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Keg at Brewdog Camden, London. A black coloured pour with a small off white head on top. Hoppy, citrus, pine aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus, slightly roasty, slightly bitter. grapefruit. Very easy to drink despite its strength. Nice one.

650 ml bottle. Thanks tiong!
Pours a black colour with a large, white, lacy head. Aroma is very, very intense with floral hops, spruce and some caramel notes. Flavour of roasted malts, floral hops, spruce, toffee, some ash, pepper and rye bread. Rye or bread doesnít dominate, which is definitely a good thing in an IPA. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a bitter, malty, bready finish. Very nicely hopped. More please.

650ml bottle from a trade, thanks stawn!

Pours pitch black with a white bubbly head. Great aroma of fresh exotic fruits, grassy hops, pine, lemon, citrus, hints of roasty malts and coffee. Taste is fruity and slightly roasty with a lot of exotic fruitness, grassy hops, pine, hints of rye and chocolate. Finish is roasty with some nice hoppy notes and lingering fruitness, slight hints of rye. Nice, quite fruity and tasty Black IPA.

Itís got a finishing taste of Rye. This beer is not too hoppy/bitter. The Rye, malts, & citrus notes tame the hoppiness. Itís pretty balanced. Iím glad I pulled the trigger on a bottle. Iím impressed but not shocked, Firestone Walker makes good stuff.

Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Bottled on 7/6/12. Pours dark dark brown to black with a medium beige head with decent retention. Nice hoppy presence in the nose--grapefruit, lemon, pine, all the good stuff. The malt is more subdued, but itís there, too. The rye is pretty noticeable. Taste is bittersweet and sour with a lingering bitter finish. This definitely leans more toward straight IPA with the roasted malts kind of in the background. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Very good--possibly the best black IPA Iíve had.
