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.

Bästa svartipan. Förmodligen för att beskan är låg. Världsklass. Friska dofter. Lätt i kropp

Bottle. Taste is a perfect blend of hops, rye, malt and booze. Maybe the best black IPA I have ever had.

I had this beer at the SLO Xtreme beerfest. It pours a dark brown--almost black, with glints of red in the light. A tan/taupe head. No head retention, which is not unusual for Firestone Walker creations. The color is misleading as the bouquet has a resiny hop character. Perfectly carbonated. In fact, the ties the resiny hop with the rye flavor with a very smooth transition. Not sure if that was intended or if it occurred serendipitously. Either way, it works.

Great rye flavor in this IPA. Floral hops, citrus, malt and bitterness. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 Pours almost black with large then diminishing cream down head. Aroma is yeast and some deeper bread. Stars of like a good piece of tart rye bread then into coffee malts.

Bomber dated 03/04/13 Pours out looking like a stout with a black body you cant see any light through and a khaki head. Great lacing and good head retention. Sweet citrus fruit and pine hop aromas. The rye peeks through with a nice little spice. The taste opens with a hit of hop flavor and bitterness upfront and the bitterness lingers throughout the taste which is nice. This thing is heavily hopped. Big citrus and pine flavors. The malts come through nicely as well providing rye spiciness, roastedness, and breadiness. Medium bodied and carbonated. Goes down smooth. Very nice. Im glad Firestone Walker is now available in Texas. This beer is superb. Dont have much to compare it to in the Black IPA category, but it is delicious. The added rye is a nice touch.

Draught at bar. Black color, beige head. Sttong bitter taste with citrus, caramel, roasted malts, nuts, grapefruit, pine and resin. Nice balance of hops and malts in body. Bitter finish with grapefruit and coffee. Magnificent black IPA.

Mille mercis Ben pour ce monstre! Une robe presque noire et sa tte mousseuse qui est rsistante. Un nez dstabilisant et envotant. Des notes houblonnes qui volent la vedette. Je pense, entre autre, au Citra. Il y a des parfums vraiment citronns. Je sens aussi de la rsine et des fleurs. Un aspect menthol se dveloppe: est-ce lalcool? La base malte montre des pointes chocolates et des notes de pain de seigle rti. Jaime ces crales lorsquelles restent sur leurs positions. Sur les papilles, un travail artistiquement houblonn et assez complexe. Des saveurs de marijuana et de fleurs sches. Des notes videntes de pamplemousse. Des aiguilles de pin et dautres choses vertes. Des crales qui arrivent un moment opportun. Un seigle qui transporte ses habituels lments pics. Une sensation en bouche trs russie. Un corps dense mais souple. Une texture qui se montre tantt crmeuse et tantt huileuse. Une finale intense, rsineuse et florale, enrobe par des notes rties et chocolates. Homrique.
