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.

Probably the lightest mouth feel on a black IPA that Ive experienced. Dark malty to begin with a strong citrus flavor. Excellet

Pours cola coloured with a nice respectable 2 finger head that quickly recedes along with the lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, cocoa and hazelnut. Taste is grapefruit, orange zest, cereal, dark chocolate, walnut. Tastes a lot more bitter than the advertised 60 IBU and leaves a nasty metallic taste on my tongue. Mouthfeel is very nice and thick and creamy, however. Generally Im not a big fan of IPAs and this one does nothing to convince me otherwise. I can see why lovers of IPAs and Dark IPAs would like this though.

Actually I give this 3 and a half stars. Their Black Rye IPA is an interesting contrast to their series of IPAs and a refreshing one. Dark coffee hue. Billowy head. Laces the glass with waves of hops. Not as hoppy as I expected. Actually quite delicious and approachable than some of their other beers. Full bodied. Not bad. Definitely not a brew to be guzzled down but savored.

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2013
9 oz pour at the Yardhouse in Meridian. Pitch black with a little brown foam. Great roasted malts with a strong hoppy backbone. Finishes bitter. Very tasty beer.

gkeh (467) - Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2014 Dark brown with tan head and good lacing. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, roasted malts. Slight coffee and roasted malt flavor, but the taste is big citrus notes. Fantastic. One of the best black IPAs.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Bottle: Rusty brown on the pour, appearing darker in the glass with a pluming, chunky, nice beige head that lasts for a while & leaves nice lacing behind. Aroma is pungent pine, light weedy dankness, roasted malt, light cocoa dust, & a good slickness from the rye. Mild woody essence, too. Taste is full of roasted malt, light dry cocoa bean, some spicy rye, & a large cascading hop presence. Light pungency, pine needles, leaves, & herbal notes. Dry, leafy, roasted, slightly spicy finish. Pretty good stuff, albeit far from my favorite of the style.

Bottle from Brewdog Birmingham. Extremely good. Fabulous balance of dark malt mouthfeel and generously proportioned hops. Easy drinking, but rammed hard with flavour.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 This is the best Black IPA Ive ever had. Very smooth. Pours a dark black color with a good creamy looking tan head. Aroma is complex; in fact, one of the most complex of the IPA category in general. The malt aroma is there, but the floral hops are slightly present, but not too much. Pine is there but not overwhelmingly so. The taste meets up to the smell. Very smooth. A little bit of bitterness on the front, but some malt at the end. This is a phenomenal beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
