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.

GOOD LORD! That is a lot of Rye! Look I get it, it even says it in the title but holy nutburger that is some serious Rye Spice. Aroma is hops. first and foremost most the typical West Coast style, lots of grapefruits citrus etc. hint of pine. App: black with beige head and nice fine lacing. Taste is almost entirely dominated by RYE. Initial hint is hops but that precedes an enormous RYE bomb. Palate is thick spicy and .... wait for it.... RYE- ey. Overall it was a bit hard to get through a bomber of this. Definitely not my face and a bit curious what all the love is about...

Tessic (1045) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2016
This black IPA poured a deep black colour with a light tan coloured head. Minimal lacing. Scents include hay hops, roasted malts and more hops! First swig was delicious with flavours of roasted malts, candy and flowery hops. Finish is medium bitter with slight floral taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bosskie (766) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2016
Pitch black with a big bubbly white head. Smell is pungent bitterness, lots of resin with some coffee and chocolate in the background. Liquorice, herbs, mint. Round and earthy. Taste is bitter ashy and dry, refreshing, crisp finish, cleansing. Crisp and smooth, hoppy, great balance. Elegant and subtle.

Werckmeister (2285) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - OCT 9, 2016
0,66l bottle at home from trade with amazngwrldfood, big thanks. Bottled 03/08/2016. black color, medium big coffee-colored head. smells of exotic fruits, mango, passion fruit, some pines, licorice, light candy, earthy, musty. very lovely fruit notes / great smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of caramel, some mango, passion fruit, spices, candy, licorice, breadish, some coffee, earthy. finishes rather balanced with some caramel, mango and some licorice. great stuff, was a bit underwhelmed at first, but gets a lot better the more you drink. missing some more hoppy notes / a bit on the candiish side, but overall very lovely balance. very nice beer.

olsvammel (6208) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2016
Sample at SBWF 2016. Malty smell with sponge cake, rye, dark malts and hops. Similar taste. Nice smell but doesn’t deliver in the taste.

RuNpali (70) - FINLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Tuoksussa paljon humalia mutta myös maltaiden makeutta. Ulkonäkö on upea, houkutteleva pitkään kestävällä beigellä vaahdolla. Maku on black ipalle tyypillinen. Suutumtuma on täyteläinen ja melko hyvin balanssissa. Huippuolut.

Excellen Bree, bought a 22 at the recommendation of an acquaintance and it's tasty. No amenities so straight from the bottle, nice sharp bitter flavor, rich but not too creamy, medium palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cunningham (7049) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2016
Black color with a fine beige head. Nice lacing. Nice aroma with a fine intensity. Medium to full body with a smooth nice carbonation. Easy to drink. Solid balance between sweetness and bitterness. Chocolate, grapefruit hoppy, rye, bready, some roast, coffee, pine and fruity. Ok balanced complexity. One more please!
[Bottle from Utobeer at Borough market in London, England]
