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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 26, 2013
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

Appearance: pours a khaki colored two finger head that lasts throughout the pint. Great cola color Nose is my favorite part of the beer, it smells like citrus hops between two slices of soft fresh rye bread. Taste I get the initial sharpness from the rye that lingers with nice ballgame from the hops on the back end. In would like more of the chorus hop forward flavour, I don't get it. Overall a good rye, that is well balanced and drinkable for a big beer that is over 8% abv ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

furthur (214) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle, black body. Decent head, fades to a skiff, but leaves good lacing. Aroma is spruce and tropical fruit, just a hint of roastyness and wet wool. Taste is roasted barley, spruce, grapefruit, spicy rye, citrus rind bitter. Body is light, but smooth, carbonation bright and fine. The long, bitter finish lasts a bit too long to be pleasant.

TH28 (150) - - DEC 20, 2014
Appearance: Black with a thick tan foam head and nice lacing. Aroma: resinous and light citrus hop notes, with an underlying roasted malt. Taste: light roasted malt dominates, with an acidic citrus/grapefruit hop flavor on the backside with a crisp bitterness. Mouthfeel: light to medium with a moderate carbonation. Finish: lingering roasted malt and resinous hop.

Davros (2035) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours black with a large head. Nose shows pine, grapefruit, bready and nutty malt and a soft spicy hit. More spicy rye as a flavour, along with a little roast. Some piny hops followed by a balanced finish.

Bomber. Earthy rye aroma with notes of pine, grapefruit citrus and some roast. Pours black with a large light brown head and not much lacing. Good earthy rye flavor with light roastiness. Finishes quite smooth especially for an iPA with light bitter hops as well as pine and grapefruit. Excellent black IPA!

Pours a dark brown, nearly black. Thick brown head holds strong. Smells of spice, cherry and chocolate. Taste of bitter chocolate, floral spice, a hint of roasted coffee and bitter cherry. I don't usually like rye beers or even black ipa's but this is well done. Not overly spicy with the makes it very drinkable.

mp_lane (67) - Indiana, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Pours extremely dark, with 2 fingers of tan head. Aroma is so pleasant, sweet with a nice fruity hop note. Flavor is excellent balance of barrel aged maltiness and some sweet balance to the bitterness. One of the finest beers from FW.

Spab (2575) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
650 ml bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a very dark brown with moderate-sized beige head that leaves a little lace. Aroma is a lovely blend of roasty dark malts, spicy rye and citrusy, earthy hops. Flavour is also a nice mix of roasty chocolate and coffee, spicy rye and a, perhaps a little subtle, citric/earthy hoppiness. Quite impressive.

Great fruity smell. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Not a huge fan of IPAs but absolutely better than most I've tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DenverLogan (827) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into a Lost Abbey chalice. Pours dark brown with amber-brown head. Aroma of rich malts, hay, ganja, bread dough. Flavors of dark roasted malts, burnt malts, straw hops, minerals, oak. Overall big, bold, a bit rough but tasty.
