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.

Really impressed by this one. Great biter rye flavors. Not as much dark malt as most black ipas, may be because it is covered up by the massive amount of hops. This stuff is really good.

650 ml. bottle sampled @ Firestone Walker Tasting. Thank you! Ruby black, thick mocha. Smell is mocha, light hop, dark rye bread. Taste is bitter dark rye bread, roast, mocha, grainy, caramel, hop is only light here. Lightly fizzy, grainy. Good but could have used more hop presence but that might be just because this one is probably an older body.

ElManana (274) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2014
Pours black with beige head. Aroma is roasted, chocolate, hops. Taste is fantastic. Roasted very well balanced with the hoppy character of an ipa. Hints of coffee, chocolate, malt.

liquidhedonism (94) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - OCT 10, 2014
12 oz bottle from John?s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Aroma is roasty and nutty, with hints of coffee and burned caramel. Mouthfeel and taste begins a bit sweet and creamy, and finishes bitter and slightly astringent. It was a little dry for my taste, but despite needing some more residual sugars, this is a pretty great beer!

Poured from a 12. First sip was like a grainy, pungent bitter punch in the face. I quickly recovered and found lingering flavors of dark roasted malt, piney hops and burnt coffee. Definitely had to ease into this beer.

hopwine (357) - Bend, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Mango, melon, faint rye, pine, citrus and soft roast build into a long finish. Hard to find anything wrong with this.

Chadski4 (119) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Piney hops aroma which then transitions into very complex flavors of roasted malts and bitter resin hops. Subtle coffee finish. Very, very enjoyable.
