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.

The appearance is amazing as is the smell. The aroma is much more hoppy than the beer really is. Very nice balance of malts and hops. Not nearly as hoppy as I expected, and very drinkable.

Cunningham (6911) - 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!

FLYING SAUCER 4th BEER (YES I CAN)
Poursbasically black with a big tan head & good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is like a real stylized Christmas morning, what with the orange zest, the pine, the little bit of chocolate... Santas toots, whatever.

The flavor is pretty dry, very fruity, stupidly delicious... itís mostly citrusy & itís got a medium level of bitterness. Some light resiny/piney stuff is cool... The roastiness is so mild that I wouldnít notice it blindfolded. The alcohol flavor is so low that this almost drinks like a low Ŗooster.

Pours black with creamy tan milky head. No noticeable aroma, yet great hoppy beer with very smooth, notable and memorable finish.

mezr (96) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Poured from a 22oz bottle a very dark brown with a medium, tan, frothy head that lightly laces the glass. Aroma has light pine and citrus notes. Medium body with average carbonation. Starts sweet, adds a bit of spiciness, and then has a very long, bitter finish.

skortila (5239) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2016
Bottled @ Beertemple. 30cl sample. The aroma has pine, some citrus, some chocolate. Dark brown coloured beer with a medium sized, beige head. The taste is moderate bitter with caramel sweetness, it has pine, light roast, citrus and a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied beer. Great stuff.

From a bottle. Iím a huge fan of a Black IPA and this was no disappointment, the slightly spicy finish is spot on.

skiatd1 (39) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Wonderful palate, thick on the tongue, but crisp in the aftermath. Only slight rye flavor, mostly contributes to crispness One or two citrus notes in the aftertaste Kid palates should not attempt this. Everyone who likes Black IPAs should try this. Yet there are others I would recommend first ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerandhockey8 (350) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - JUL 24, 2016
From 22oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a nice black color, thick tan head with a lot of lacing left on the glass. Nose is hoppy, resin, light malt, and citrus. Taste is medium heavy body, bitter. Finishes extremely silky and smooth. Great beer, love the complexity here.

Stoned99 (1163) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2016
06.08.2016 bottle from Canada Craft club, so 6 weeks old. Aroma: big roasted malt /rye evenly blended with pineapples. Typical black ipa notes. App: pitch black with brown tint, medium frothy moka head, awesome creamy lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, creamy, silky, soft carbonation, light fruitiness with medium roasted bitter finish. Overall: not a big fan of crossed styles like black ipaís but in this case the blend of stout and ipa is really well balanced. Fruity enough even though itís not super fresh (thanks CCC for shipping old stuff to clients). Not Firestoneís problem if this isnít fresh.
