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.

Dark pour from draft to tulip glass. One finger of light tan foam. Moderate lacing. Fresh Piney hop aroma, and the scent of background rye. The beer is very rye forward, and strong hop bitter finish.

Poured into a shaker. Pours almost black with a good beigh head. Smell of hops and stout. The hops are definitely in the nose. Taste is great. Not overaly bitter somewhat like a stout

On tap at Big Hops San Antonio. Pours dark but rather clear if held up to the light. A thin head allows aromas of toasted malt and floral hops to ring through with a subtle twinge of rye. A taste of spicy rye caresses the tongue while the citrus hops sneak in to the party. In the end, a cozy bitter finish. A magically balanced arrangement of malt, rye, and hops. What we have here is one of the best beers ever made.

This is a wonderful, interesting IPA. Nice and dark color, almost looks like a porter. Super hoppy, hints of pine and somewhat oily mouthfeel. Tasty, tasty, tasty!

AndrewOD (15) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Pours a dark opaque brown with a very small wispy head. The aroma is nutty more so than other black rye IPAs that I've tried. The taste is very smooth with minimal bitterness. One of the best black IPAs that I've tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fraternie (1010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Impressive for its light weight on the palate combined with its dark malt flavors, which add smokey notes and glide along with finesse. Subtle dark fruit is dominated by smooth malt flavors of burnt caramel and chocolate. Medium hop notes through the long, balanced finish.

Bamsen78 (5221) - Snderborg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
Draught @ Fire Works, Arlington, VA. Pours cloudy nearly pitch black with small tan head. Clear, undisturbed aroma of hops with subtle citric notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with perfect citric additions. A fantastic bitter aftertaste with hints of citrus. Simply the perfect Black IPA.

kermis (12398) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Draft sample at Freshcraft. Pours near black with a small beige head. Aroma of grass, roast, citrus, burnt toast, caramel and toffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter.

MrHangover (4293) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2013
Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a very dark brown, almost black beer with a big beige head on top. Aroma is great, perfect combination of a West Coast IPA and a robust stout. Big chocolate citrus hops on the aroma, some molasses and licorice in there as well. Flavour is bittersweet with touches of coffee and chocolate. Very well balanced, long sweet bitter finish. Great brew.
