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.

22.oz botle from mainbrew.com and on tap. Perhaps Firestone’s Best! Amazing citrus and roasty aroma! Beauty frothy off-white head. Silky smooth and lush malt and hops. Smooth bitterness and finishes dry. Overall this is the best black IPA out there next to Boneyard’s Amored fist. Finally someone gets a cda right that’s avaible in bottles (and draft).

Pours dark mahogany with a tan head. Creates excellent lacing in the glass. Aroma is nice and hoppy with a touch of dark malt. Taste is dark roasted malt and citrus. This is an excellent black IPA.

[Bottle] Inky black pour without much head at all. Nose is of chocolate, smoke and heavy hops. Chocolate, light mocha, pine needles, spicy rye and wooden notes in the taste. Oily texture and solid lingering citrus and pine finish. Smooth and very drinkable. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

Looks are deceiving. Pours a dark brown with slight beige head. However, nose and taste is definitely of an IPA (if blindfolded, would not have expected to be drinking a dark beer.) nose is citrus. Taste is citrus, rye and hops. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tdoyledesign (154) - Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Pours a nice black hue with a thin off white head. Aroma is a lot of citrus up front with some hops to balance it out. Taste is surprisingly crisp given what I expected from the appearance. Palate is a lot of citrus, grass, pine and a nice crisp hop finish.

Beerdedone (2488) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a frothy lasting tan head that produced good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, citrus, chocolate and pine. Bitter hoppy flavor of sticky pine, caramel, chocolate, citrus and some spicy rye. Medium body low carbonation, silky texture.

PhilJackson80 (251) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 24, 2014
22 oz bottle. The beer pours to a deep black color with a very thick tan head. The aroma has a citrus smell with a toasted malt & some smoky aromas. The taste has a medium full mouthful with a medium bitterness. Overall a very good black IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kevinator (710) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Good beer. It had a roasted malt aroma with a slight floral hoppiness. Really dark with a tan head. Weighty mouthfeel that was smooth and full. It had a milder hops bitterness upfront followed by a strong malty backbone. It was well blended and the alcohol was hidden. There was also a hint of oak. Tasty brew.

solidfunk (2992) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2014
This is a keeper. Comes together with awesome balance. Lots of roast malt and a little citrus hops. Caramel and dark chocolate - not sure where the rye fits in here but it must be involved in bringing the whole project together. Pours black with great mocha head and lacing. Tap at Boundary Road.

Full marks. Aromas of chocolate and vanilla. Taste is sweet and bitter with long length.

hockeybeerguy (898) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a black body with a three finger off-white foamy head, leaves some clingy slightly foamy lacing in rings. The smell has some slightly roasted coffee. There is some rye, slight citrus/pine coming through in a spicy sort of way. The taste is mainly bitter, some slight coffee - but mainly subdued, hopped - yes, but balanced and extremely flavorful. There is a dry yet bittersweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, its about a medium, comes across fairly sessionable - maybe perhaps, and the ABV slightly felt. Overall, I’d say this is very good for a Black Ale and I would come back to this quicker than other Black ales though I’m not a super fan on the style, but would rather have Baranof’s over this.
