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 brown with tiny white head. Piney hops, rye nose. Sweet with pine and onion flavor. I just dont get the black IPA thing.

For me this was a "sipper" - a bit overwhelming in malt and rye flavor. I enjoyed it, but probably wouldnt have it again. I enjoy "lighter" rye beers. I did enjoy the hops in it, though, but, to me, they were more piney than citrusy. Overall, a good beer if youre a rye and IPA fan who doesnt mind a slightly heavier malt aspect.

Camden Brewdog. Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Smooth palate, light and a little soft. Mild fine carbonation. Smooth malt - a little creamy. A hint of darkness to the malt. Mild rye spice. Nice piney hops with a whisper of marmalade citrus and red berry fruits. Mild minerals. Finishes soft with a trace of coffee and a little hop bitterness. All flavours in good balance - that is to say typical Firestone Walker!

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. About an inch of tan head, pours very dark, black/brown in color. Piney nose is very crisp, body is thinnish, rye hides until just at the end, hop profile is very balanced. Warming is invisible, really lovely beer overall.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 Poured into standard pint glass. Pours very dark borwn, nearly black. Two fingers of light tan head after a hard pour. Head has good retention and lacing, slowly dissipating into a thin cap. Smells of hops and roasted malt. The taste is hoppy up front, fading into flavors of rye and roasted malts. Not tasting much alcohol, despite the relatively high percentage. Moderate to heavy body. Medium carbonation and not a super clean finish. Leaves a mild resinous hop feeling/taste in the mouth (not necessarily a negative). Relatively palatable considering the hops and alcohol content. A nice take on a rye IPA. Would consider drinking again, although I feel Firestone-Walker has better offerings (e.g. double jack).
