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.

Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2013
650mL bottle. Pours thick black with an off white head. Aroma is absolute stunning, loads of peach, nectarine, grapefruit as well as a hint of dark chocolate. Resinous piney note also come through after it has sat for a couple of minutes. What an amazing start to a beer. Creamy mouth feel with medium carbonation. The tropical fruits dominate the amazingly complex flavour with resinous piney taking a back seat. Earthy charred notes from the malt also play a role. What a stunning beer.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bomber into tulip. Bottomless oily black; stiff sand-colored head. Stunning interplay of pungent PNW hops, spicy rye twang, and nuances of tobacco and woodsmoke. Sweet and roasty malt flavors, sharp citric/piney hop, some almost-tropical fruitiness. Slick and filling mouthfeel, cut by the zing of hop/rye/CO2. Crazy delicious; one of the most satisfying beers Ive ever had.

jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours black with a lovely tan head head that holds well. Nose shows piney hops, some roasted malts and maybe even a little citrus. Wow taste is lovely! Roasted malts and piney hops dominate first up, with a bitter, almost caramel like finish. Slight spiciness from the rye too. Great black ipa! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NachlamSie (3380) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bomber bottled on September 20, 2013 from Keg Liquor. Been waiting to try this one as I like basically everything from Firestone Walker. Pours very dark with a well formed khaki head. The aroma is great. Nice pungent citrusy hops with a subtle dankness highlight a spicy rye aroma with a suggestion of whiskey. The flavor is solid. Great hop presence. I could use more hops, maybe I guess, but I do really like what theyve done here. There is an assertive citrus bite and its very apparent, but doesnt quite explode. The malts are clean and add perfect balance. Delicious rye notes mix with dark chocolate and there is a constant earthiness. Very good beer.
