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.

22oz served in a Sam Adams perfect pint A - Dark brown with a small mocha colored head. The head stays active and forms a thin ceiling of bubbles that stays until the last sip. S - Pungent hops, green pine, orange, grapefruit, rye really comes out strong as it warms up. T - Roasted wet grain, orange and grapefruit oils, some sappy pine mixed in, sharp rye really stand out and adds a sharp earthiness. There’s a faint smokey character, some sweet citrus, finishes with green, resinous, hop bitterness. M - Medium carbonation, medium body, dry finish. Nice pungent hop aroma with a nice roasty background. The rye really shined here and mix well with the hop profile. Good stuff. I did a blind taste test with another Black Rye IPA and the Wookey was the better of the two. Serving type: bottle 03-16-2013

maneliquor (3020) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours very dark brown with a stern khaki cap on top. Nose is full of citric zest, fresh cut grass and dirty chocolate with a slight hint of spice. Very dirty and earthy feel to this one which I like a fair bit - plenty of grass and pine with mild citric tang coming through. Definitely an earthy cocoa note in there which works well. Nothing too over the top, just a very, very solid CDA

jflopsu (510) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours black with a light white head. Has a strong hop and light stout aroma. A strong citrus hop taste with bitter and roasted malts. A strong a lingering bitter aftertaste from the hops.

Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen 15/7-14. Malty and really hoppy with light light roasted notes, grapefruity, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and hoppy.

llcooldave (1073) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Black in the glass with a cola colored head. Wonderful spicy citrus hops aroma. More spicy citrus on the palate that morphs into a burnt pizza crust flavor. There is a bit of a minty citrus note in the aftertaste. Overall, nice and easy drinking but still complex... and not too pricy either!

benpickens (402) - Camarillo, California, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Pours an oily black with a big tan head that holds well and leaves ample lacing; juicy citrus aromas on the noise; a hoppy hit than a coffee dark ale infusion finishing with a classic IPA finish. Complex.

Jur (263) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Draught @ Flying Saucer, Addison. Thick dark pour, little head. Full flavoured, smooth and thick because of the rye I guess, mild vanilla, heavy hop finish. Glorious.

ARH (338) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
On tap poured into an IPA glass. The aroma is a burnt grain and fresh rye combination with some hints of sweet berries. It’s a dark, near-opaque, oily caramel brown with a thick tan head. The head reduces down to a thick ring and leaves an above average, puffy lacing. It’s highly burnt bitter (60 IBU seems likes an underestimate) with a light sweetness. The average amount of active carbonation helps the thicker texture to go down. It’s a full body with a light finish of dark fruit, some spice, caramel, and rye, but the aftertaste is heavily smokey and burnt - almost charred - with a dull spiciness.

John25 (380) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle. Basically a perfectly balanced black rye ipa. Chocolate, citrus, dark fruit, light rye spice that comes in and out, medium carb, dark semi-rich malts on the feel, dry finish. Very complex and balanced for so much going on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
