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.

Amazing beer. One of my top 5, all time. Super great blend IBU, aroma. Better than Stone’s Sublimely Self-Righteous, and that’s saying quite a bit. Let’s hope they increase production. Tasted only in bottle.

This beer makes me think I will love all types of Black Rye IPAs, either it’s true, or Firestone Walker just set the bar really high.

Pours a French Roast coffee color, nice head and lace, hopped black licorice on the nose, deep roasted, chocolatey malt backbone, finishing with a perfect balance of malt and hops. I can’t imagine a better black IPA.

I say bullshit to their comment as being the first foray into Black IPAs because this is too damn good to be a first. Off the nose, the aroma has hints of fruit and wood and the head is pretty solid. The taste is one of fruit, wood, malt and this desire to drink more of it. The lacing keeps sticking to the glass and the beer keeps going down. There is nothing I can say that has not been said. This is a completely solid beer that does what it needs to and that is to get the beer lover to drink more of it. I picked up this beer at the 2013 Great British Beer Fest and it is better than the other 800 beers that showed up. This beer scores a 100 for a good reason.

Another perfect example of a great brew from Firestone. Incredible hop aroma. Black slight roast bitter in hops and grains. I love the brew for sure.

So sweet, yet so perfectly herbal from the rye malt. Pitch black IPA with greet body and mouthfeel.

Full marks. Aromas of chocolate and vanilla. Taste is sweet and bitter with long length.

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.
