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.

On draft: poured deep burgundy brown, mellow off white head that faded. Nose of dark fruits, pine, resin, rye and cereal malts, subtle citrus notes. Lots of the same on the palate with some chocolate malt and rye spicy notes adding complexity to this heavier bodied beer. This really grew on me as it warmed as lots of herbal hop bitterness was well balanced by the hefty malt profile. Well done for a first foray into black IPAs ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrusy flavor. Little bitter after taste. I prefer a smoother more mellow taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

draft at owen. excellent example of the style. this and self-righteous seem to be the defining beers for the style and rightfully so. both are very similar, although this is less bitter and abrasive. I enjoy the traditional PNW hops with the roasted malts as with Stone’s. Big body but still very drinkable. Alcohol is very well hidden. Really well crafted and executed beer.

Great black ipa, roasted malts, then a hop finish, with a good touch of spice.

Really strong aroma. At first hops, resiny, then evolves to add some rye spicy, and roasty stuff. Also some sweetness? Pours black with a whitish head. Taste is bitter forward. Has some spice and burnt stuff later with a hint of malt. Really complex and nice but the bitterness does linger. Thick ish body.

Very nice. Lots of spice, toast, coffee and caramel on the nose. It is very dark with a nice coffee coloured head. The spice, coffee and caramel continue in the taste and are complimented by some citrus and herbal flavours. It is a thick and smooth, very drinkable.

Sdaniel90 (521) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. Deep, clear ruby with a large frothy tan head. Intense roasted and hoppy aroma, very floral and fruity as well. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Considerably sweet with heavy bitterness. More fruity and hoppy than malty, but not unbalanced. Strong and complex bitterness finishes it off perfectly. Great beer!
