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.

ACHops (1083) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2014 Dark brown with creamy head. Bright hops and rich, dark malt taste. Fresh, floral hops jump out. The booze is obvious but not out of balance. Revisited 2+ years later... still one of the best CDAs on the market. Rich creamy dark chocolate malt that doesn’t dominate but delivers big body and abv. Hops are present and pleasantly bitter but not crushing like you often see in this style. Excellent beer.

Maris (1267) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2016
From a 650ml bottle on 6/2/2016. Pours the deepest brown with a biggish tan head. The nose features light fruity hops and a bit of chocolate. Taste wise, there a good dose of chocolate and roasted malt, some sweet citrus and stone fruit, and a firm rye based, slightly spicy bitterness. Full bodied with modest carbonation. A pretty good black IPA, but have had much better. I’m a bit surprised that this a 100/100 beer on here,

Paired this with a vanilla heath milkshake so... Maybe not the best. Some roastiness there which is bad! Per the BJCP guidelines. Goes down pretty smooth. But rather lacking in flavor. The citrus notes really just give it an acidic note. Not bad but not setting my mind equal to blown.

Biroholik (141) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 1, 2016
IBU: 80
Kolor : Czarny jak smoła. Zero prześwitów pod światło.
Piana: Kawowa piana, zwarta, trwała stworzona z dużej grupy średnich i małych pęcherzyków powietrza. Piana doskonale powleka ścianki TeKu, nie pozostawiając prawie żadnych pustych miejsc.
Zapach: Początkowo nie jest intensywny. Czuć owocowe nuty, trochę karmelu, trochę brązowego cukru i żywicę. Po ogrzaniu nuty prażonego słonecznika. Przez chwilę przewija się żytnia, chlebowa woń.
Smak: Zajebioza! Tutaj prażony słonecznik dominuje na dobre. Pojawia się bardzo dużo sosnowych, iglastych nut. W oddali dopiero ciemne owoce. Po kilku łykach na języku wyczuwalna jest czekolada i lekki kawowy kwasek. Najdziwniejsze detale jakie wyłapałem to : słone paluszki, orzechy laskowe oraz skórka cierpkiej mandarynki. Goryczka jest masywna, długa z pikantnym finiszem. Ta pikanteria pojawia się i znika na różnych etapach. Pod koniec degustacji można wydobyć nawet beczkowe nuty. Balans poszczególnych składników jest obłędny. Alkohol cudownie rozgrzewa w przełyku, w żołądku czuć również przyjemne ciepło. To co wyróżnia najbardziej to piwo od innych Black IPA to jego konsystencja, która jest niesamowicie oleista i trwała. Wookey Jack jest cholernie gęsty i treściwy.
Wysycenie: Niskie.
4 najlepsze IPA na świecie!Niektórzy nie wierzą w oceny RateBeer. Można w to wątpić jeśli piwo ma 10-20 ocen. W tym przypadku jest ok.1100 użytkowników, którzy ocenili to piwo. Podpisuje się pod ich wyborem i mogę chyba je uznać najlepszym Black IPA jakie piłem. Wookey Jack ma wszelkie atuty by nim zostać : jest trochę słodki, trochę pikantny, trochę kwaskowaty na finiszu, trochę wytrawny, trochę chmielowy - po prostu bajka! Dodatkowo ta gęstość i oleistość - do tej pory coś niespotykanego w BIPA. Konsystencja godna niejednego Stouta, a nawet RIS-a. Doskonałe piwo na celebrowanie 500 lajków!

Big dark chocolate on the nose, some coffee, orange. Pronounced coffer bitterness, chocolate orange, well balanced hope profile. A big fan of the black IPA style and this is a favourite

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle in LA. Pours black with tan head. Hoppy aroma - tropical fruit. Flavour has chocolate first, then citrus/tropical hops. Mild sweetness, finishes with a little roasted malt and moderate bitterness. This black IPA hits a good balance of dark malt and hops. Really nice.

sjdevel (11) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2016
1-2 finger head when poured from a bomber. The head retention is not th best as it fades quickly and there is some lacing afterwards. (an IPA of any type should have more head retention as the hop oils aid in retention). This brew is a thick and very dark black. No light penetration at all here. Very strong citrus and pine aroma (hops). Along with the powerful hop aroma, there is also a rich coffee and charred grain scent. A decent hop bite right up front, not a ridiculous amount though. The bitterness is quickly cut by a rich, buttery, sweet malt flavor. There are flavors of coffee, toffee, chocolate, wood, nuts, caramel, and smoked grains. VERY RICH! Full bodied brew. Very thick feeling and a bit oily. Awesome beer. This one does live up to the hype and am glad to have finally picked one up. I would definitely grab this one again as I am quickly becoming a Firestone fan. This comes up as one of the top 10 or so beers in the country and I am a proud supporter.

Fin (8853) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Earlsdon, Coventry, consumed at Isobels, Eardisley, Herefordshire, Thursday ’New Years Eve’ 31st December 2015 Pours black with a head that disappeared before I started rating it. Wonderfully hoppy but also roasty, green fresh hops. A really nice BIPA. Good assertive beer and yet the substantial malty backbone restrains the hops somewhat to ensure that they do not ruin this. I really like this and immediately wish I had purchased more. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0
