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.

(on tap @ Mikkeller & Friends) Pours black with creamy, medium, tan head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is indeed gnarly with malty, rye character and perhaps some subtle herbal hop notes. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body with a green, bitter and warming finish. Flavour seems to funny spicy and peaty notes along with the dark, toasted malt. Overall hard to classify and somewhat different from how I like my black IPA’s.

Bottle from Keg N Bottle National City: Created a thick fluffy shaving cream lather foam head while a deep dark color of brown liquid rested below. Aroma is strange and funky blend of assorted scents that begin with lightly toasted dark malt but then morph into a bold smell of freshly milled barley malts. Some faint background aromas consist of mild hops that give off just enough character to carry this as an IPA but again with the malts that suggest hints of chocolate or tea. The drink is subtle with minor notes of spicy hop flavorings but it could be due to the addition of rye that is bringing out the pleasant and welcomed spice profile. Rich and robust dark malts are what build up the true character complexity of this recipe which makes for an interesting drink. Good stuff considering the price of a bomber was only $7.99

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2014
On tap at the Barrel Republic. Appearance: Opaque black-brown with a sudsy tan head that leaves streaks of lacing. Aroma: Black IPA leaning towards herbal and low hops. Flavor: Good hop/malt mix and balance. Better than the aroma suggests. Feel: Medium+ body with good carbonation. Semi-dry. O: Very good for style.

Probably my favorite beer. Pours dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Smells piney, taste matches with a nice spicy kick from the rye. Absolutely delicious.

Black pour with a tan head. Aroma of roast malts, almost smoky, the hops come off as somewhat minty. There’s enough hop flavor to get this into the black IPA range,but there is still enough roast malt bitterness that this has stout characteristics. Still an excellent beer if you don’t try to put it in a style hole.

Tap at the Morro Bay Yacht Club. Pretty much for the last month on Wednesdays with the inlaws at hamburger night. Pours a deep black with slight tan head. Aroma is hoppy grass and slight coffee. Taste is the best black IPA I’ve had. The grassy hoppy, dank profile is there but then the dark chocolate and coffee come through.

Draft at Caliente in Pittsburgh with Devon, Don and Katie. Yes sir, a perfect score for a memorable beer. Tastes unfiltered with all the associated richness. Complex and refined.
