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.

Pours Black with than fluffy head. the aroma is strong in grapefruit, pine, resin, some chocolate and dark malts. the flavor is grapefruit, and citrus, followed by caramel and chocolate, and some roasted coffee suttle spiciness from the rye. overall this is extremely well balanced and would recommend the body is medium with a bit of dryness.

Light wooden aroma over delicate vanilla and some dark malt aromas. Some tracing hoppy scents. Taste is dry and creamy with bitter finish.

I havent had many rye-character driven brews but Wookie takes the cake. Spice Kadences with sweet malt counterbalance. A harmony as brilliant as an expertly made black IPA. Black in color with a brown head of foam. Subtle notes of roast and citrus characterized dramatically by spicy rye, caramel and some pine bite. An excellent beer all around.

Deep brown.amber with moderate, thick, light-brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Moderately to heavy malty notes - caramel, woody, slightly spice, citrus and berry. Moderate to heavy sweet and moderately bitter with long duration, hoppy malty, sweet. In overall good, spicy, raw and piney black IPA with some nice berries accents.

Bottle from Asahiya in Osaka, Japan. Pours a very nice fine tan head, which remains with some lacing. Opens with aromas of chocolate and coffee, with a touch of citrus. Nice hearty feel on the tongue, but with lots of subtlety. A good hoppy beer, but also with strong malt flavor. A very bitter rye, grainy aftertaste. A super dark but hoppy beer.

Best fucking rye beer ever. Blows most CDA or "American Black Ale"s out of the water. This was my #1 @ OBF 2013, the line of laps. You know, where youre on day 4 and taking victory laps. BTW hot tip - we had to make a couple new rules this year @ OBF 2016. That International tent...if I didnt love beer so much I would have thought their CDA (I cant recall brewery, but the Netherlands) was shameful because it stomped all over the locals. Its like it has .... THE NAME CASCADIA(N) right tf in it. oh yeah. The rules. Okay. So in 2016, we noticed this thing, but not till thursday...I got in late on weds, my bad. But anyhow...rule developed. first rule. (which was actually developed after the second rule because we noticed it first) When you get to OBF 2017, IMMEDIATELY AND WITHOUT HESITATION go to the international tent and DRINK ALL THE BEERS. Youll understand why in a second. In 2016, we noticed something. We were bouncing around, still polishing off the main 88+ stragglers/fillers, and crossed paths a few times with the IT (for brevity). I was rinsing a glass (they had no line at their dedicated rinse station) and saw two kegs blow, IIRC both from China. See the cool thing about the IT is that its not a bunch of international beer styles - its people from other parts of the world brewing OUR styles. Full circle, my friends. You are loved. Anyhow. The second rule is to make sure to troll by every 30-45 min and ensure something hasnt cropped up. Some were deep - they had their kegs like all week long; others had many unlisted. Yeah. the clue came when my overly and overtly pedantic friend tried to reconcile his tap list. Yes. We actually had two unlisted taps and missed who knows how many. We also missed one of the listed. Poof...one keg, apparently. So, those are the rules. Out of my IT picks, its a toss up between Hell and Damnation (Hel & Verdoemenis) and the Dutch CDA... DAMN ITS GOOD TO BE ALIVE https://youtu.be/FZLgXOz1om4 I hope to find many perfect beers in my lifetime and this is one of them.
