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.

Tasted on 8/12/12 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours very deep, nearly black, oily dark brown with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to average lace, leaving some thick residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is milk chocolate malt, coffee, pine resin hops, along with the signature spicy aroma of rye. The flavor is exactly the same, plenty of milk chocolate, coffee, spicy rye, and resin hops. The body is full with just under average carbonation and a long spicy rye, chocolate, coffee, and nicely bitter resin hops finish. This isn’t the hoppiest or maltiest Black IPA I have ever had, but it is the most balanced.

Fairly rich, fairly thick, fairly brown. And darn tasty! I keep trying these ADA's, and I never quite love them. This is the closest. I think the dark malt flavor is woven quite nicely through the hoppy IPA. Well done!

Froth is thick and entertaining. Aroma is light citric and piney hops that follow through on its taste. Hops are citric and piney, which balanced well with the thick Earthy deep rye flavor. Malt component tastes great, hitting various notescoffee, nuts, toasty roasty, earthy rye. Not sure the yeast imparted much, and if it did, the hops blow it out. Palate is a bit light, but not a thin ethanol situation. Overall, very well done-- well above average.

Tastes strongly of roasted malts and rye. Nice creamy head and lacing throughout. Does definitely stand up to the better ryes in the world.

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 (155) - 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.

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.

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

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.
