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.

S_Side_Smitty (744) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Pours deep brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is pine & grapefruit with some weightiness. Taste is silky smooth with grapefruit rind bitterness and malts verging on bitter chocolate. The rye is blended beautifully. Nice, nice, nice! The sweetness is perfect. Unbelievable.

AgentAle (1610) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 27, 2016
Aroma is dark malts with slight rye-like spiciness, earthiness and toasted bread. Taste is again sweet and spicy malts with a rich earthy hip profile that is well balanced but still very much there from start to finish. Tart, citrus and pinecone rounds out the flavors on the tip. Appearance is a clear black with a light brown with a light brown head that retains quite well.
