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.

Mille mercis à Ben pour ce monstre! Une robe presque noire et sa tête mousseuse qui est résistante. Un nez déstabilisant et envoûtant. Des notes houblonnées qui volent la vedette. Je pense, entre autre, au Citra. Il y a des parfums vraiment citronnés. Je sens aussi de la résine et des fleurs. Un aspect mentholé se développe: est-ce l’alcool? La base maltée montre des pointes chocolatées et des notes de pain de seigle rôti. J’aime ces céréales lorsqu’elles restent sur leurs positions. Sur les papilles, un travail artistiquement houblonné et assez complexe. Des saveurs de marijuana et de fleurs séchées. Des notes évidentes de pamplemousse. Des aiguilles de pin et d’autres choses vertes. Des céréales qui arrivent à un moment opportun. Un seigle qui transporte ses habituels éléments épicés. Une sensation en bouche très réussie. Un corps dense mais souple. Une texture qui se montre tantôt crémeuse et tantôt huileuse. Une finale intense, résineuse et florale, enrobée par des notes rôties et chocolatées. Homérique.

I haven’t been a fan of this style, but I really loved this. Pours black. Aroma- piney citrus, chocolate, and a bit of spicy rye. The taste combines these flavors extremely well. You get the citrus hops chocolate and the rye. You can taste each one individually, but they all blend extremely well together. Great beer. The best black ipa I’ve had yet.

Thanks to tastybeer for sharing this. A well balanced black IPA, it has all the aspects of a top notch West Coast beer. I haven’t tried many Firestone Walker releases but I do not see turning them down if offered. So far all have been solid.

Aroma / Appearance - Carbonated and murky, the black base is decorated by a sheen of cocoa head. Malty notes carry coffee grounds and deep hops. The vegetatal aspect is distracting unfortunately.

Flavor / Palate - Hopped up black coffee sparks the palate into action. A resiny feel rests on the back of the throat. Well rounded this does not have any big surprises. However neither does it disappoint. This is recommended if you pick up a fresh bottle.

Pours dark and black, but thins out to a clear kola, with a finger or two of somewhat lacy white-corn foam. Smell is of sweet grains, and earthy grapefruit. Taste starts and ends with grapefruit bitterness, with notes of pumpernickel bread, and slight sweet undertones also present. Finish is very hoppy, with lingering alpha-acids. Mouthfeel is medium and lightly sticky. Medium to high carbonation.

22oz bomber shared with JohnGonk. Pours pure black with 2 fingers of off white head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, peppery rye, and notes of toffee sweetness. Taste is lots of pine and grapefruit hop character, chocolate, caramel, and ends with a nice peppery rye spiciness.
