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.

Bottle at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Poured a dark brown colour with a thick frothy tan head. The aroma is grassy hop leading to a medium bitter flavour, spicy, grassy and with some pepper on the palate. This beer grew on me the more I drank it. Worth tracking down if you can.

Sampled from bottle @ CBC 2013. Very dark brown color with a deep red glare coming through, small off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly roastyness but a lot of hops, some fruityness, lightly grapefruit, very nicely bitter. Superb balance, long lingering hoppy finish. Superb!
