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.

Beergaard (202) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2015
Malty and hoppy aroma with a strong scent of citrus, rye and even rye bread. Tastewise it is dominated by citric hops, sweet malt and rye. Lingers for a while.

Body is light, tingly carbonation, foamy. Taste is spice, pine, wholemeal bread. The finish is the best bit - smoked malts, wood, spice and toffee. Touch of booze showing up. Very good beer.

flying_pig (1150) - SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2015
355ml bottle at home from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.60):
Quite a strong tasting beer that hit the spot with a good combination of pine & tropical fruits early on that was balanced out well thanks to the darker malts & some sweetness. Despite the strength, the beer was quite an easy one to drink & I worked my way through it quicker than I probably should have; an excellent beer & one I’ll be on the look out for again.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2015 My first rating. 22OZ bomber. When I bought this it was sitting in a refrigerated cooler at a grocery store, and the date on it was 12/19/14 (at over 7 months old); my guess is, being chilled, it retained most if not all of it’s hopped flavor. It was a very good beer, with lots of hop flavor, and a very heavy mouth-feel. It poured very dark, with a nice, light, caramel-colored head. It is one of the better (if not one of the best) IPA type beers I have had.

Bottle from brewdog online. Deep dark red with with a creamy lasting head. Aroma is coffee and liquorice and a hoppy piney finish. I often find rye beers a bit dry and reedy bit this is really drinkable. Medium body and mild carbonation. Very good.

As soon as the top was popped, the hop aroma exploded into the air. It pours as black as night wit a rich tan head that dissipates into lacings. The flavor is rich comes mix of malt with traces of chocolate, toast and smoke. The finish is hoppy with a great malt support. There's a subtle tar and molasses linger at the end. A nice complex beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
