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.

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.

Bottle from Jane’s Beer Store, Mountain View. Black with a thin beige head. Intoxicating C-hop aroma with light roasty notes. Taste: roasty, licorice, spice, C-hops, bitter finish. Sweet stick y body.

Wow. I had heard this was good but I didnt expect it to be a ’holy shit this is good!’ kind of beer. The rye combines perfectly with the pine, to create a spicy pine needle milk chocalate espresso type thing. Absolutely amazing. Goes down smooth, no heat whatsoever. One of the best black ipa’s ever, needs more body to score higher though.

Probably the lightest mouth feel on a black IPA that I’ve 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 I’m 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 IPA’s 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.

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.

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.
