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.

What a great beer to celebrate rating #1000 of California brewed beer.

22oz bomber pours with a mahogany head supporting a dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers a mix of malt sweetened dank earthy onion to garlic like hops mixing with citrus and a bit of dark roasted malts. The taste is similar and rich and I can really sink my teeth into it. I get firm citrus hops and dank garlic hops that mingle seamlessly with a dash of pine hop bitterness and a light degree of dark roasted malts. This comes together beautifully and the more I try it the more I want. I’ve had this over and over again and just could NOT get myself to take down notes and capture the experience. So this time I am despite the poor note taking execution here. I love this stuff.

650 ml. bottle sampled @ Firestone Walker Tasting. Thank you! Ruby black, thick mocha. Smell is mocha, light hop, dark rye bread. Taste is bitter dark rye bread, roast, mocha, grainy, caramel, hop is only light here. Lightly fizzy, grainy. Good but could have used more hop presence but that might be just because this one is probably an older body.

Pours black with beige head. Aroma is roasted, chocolate, hops. Taste is fantastic. Roasted very well balanced with the hoppy character of an ipa. Hints of coffee, chocolate, malt.

liquidhedonism (92) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - OCT 10, 2014
12 oz bottle from John?s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Aroma is roasty and nutty, with hints of coffee and burned caramel. Mouthfeel and taste begins a bit sweet and creamy, and finishes bitter and slightly astringent. It was a little dry for my taste, but despite needing some more residual sugars, this is a pretty great beer!

Poured from a 12. First sip was like a grainy, pungent bitter punch in the face. I quickly recovered and found lingering flavors of dark roasted malt, piney hops and burnt coffee. Definitely had to ease into this beer.

Mango, melon, faint rye, pine, citrus and soft roast build into a long finish. Hard to find anything wrong with this.

Piney hops aroma which then transitions into very complex flavors of roasted malts and bitter resin hops. Subtle coffee finish. Very, very enjoyable.

Dark brown, almost black with a pale tan head. Intense hoppy, piney aroma with some floral notes. Malty flavor with a slight hint of chocolate. Pleasantly bitter, but 80 IBU, really? Feels lower than that.
