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.

3 month old bottle sent to me by watson. thanks kerry! psyched to finally try this one. Hops were a little faded as could be expected but their was definitely still some tropical and citrus fruit hop flavor along with some more chewy chocolate and roasty malts. Nice beer, would like to try a fresher sample someday.

Aroma is dark and sweet with a little smoke and hop. Definitely has an ipa nose. Appearance is dark dark brown with a slightly golden brown head. Taste is malty and full, but very hopped. Finishes with a smoked character. Palate is drier than expected. Very filling, but great to drink!

Bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a deep ruby-brown with a large long-lasting frothy beige head and some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma: Wowza! Lots and lots of lovely hops backed by lightly roasted malt and a hint of spice. Flavour is also great, again with lots of hops backed by roasted malt and with a long bitter finish. Medium bodied. This surprised me, in a good way, its fantastic!

Black with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, licorice and some other fruity notes. Dry and hoppy flavour with a hint of toffee

Wonderful brew. Surprisingly different than most black IPAs in the northwest (Its a Cali-beer) Enjoyed mostly the finish. Smooth but hoppy on the palate but a really outstanding bitter end. Would definitely pair with a cast iron steak, high end bourbon, and a hot broad. Totes.

fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - JUN 15, 2013
A black beer with a foamy tan head. The aroma is great resin and citrus, heavy on the hops with some grain. The flavor is bread and grain with a quite bitter hop finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with white lacing. Aroma of rye, hops, pine, and floral notes. Taste is creamy, with pine hops, rye, sugar cane. Lingering bitter creaminess. Different, but it works.

Bomber. Yeah, man, its good. Beautiful beer, seems viscous, black, with a medium persistent tan head and very good adhesiveness. Nice medium aroma, not overpowering but pleasant, aromatic. Taste is different and distinctive, Ill stop short of saying unbelievable, but it is impressive what theyve done with rye, for sure. It just looks, smells, and tastes like good beer, and I applaud them for trying a hard style, even though itll never be my favorite.
