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.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
22 oz bottle served in a Midnight Sun chub. Bottled 7/19/12. A: Pours a dark black color with a one inch pillow of light tan foam forming on the pour. The retention is very nice on the initial pour and the head leaves nice sheets of webbing down the sides of the glass. S: Grainy rye, mild citrus and light pine are most prominent up front. Slight roast with a semi-sweet bakers chocolate as well. T: Hoppy notes in large quantities bombard each sip. Light citrus fruit flesh, dried rye with a hint of spiciness, and some mild pine as well. The roast comes in towards the finish with some slight chocolate as well. The hops and rye are really the stars of the show in this one and it seems a tad imbalanced. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation level. The finish is slightly sweet with a mild drying quality to it. O: This beer was definitely good. I just feel that it missed more of the roasty and darker qualities in the flavor profile. It walked the walk, but didnt talk the talk. It still has a good taste, but gets docked some points for the imbalance. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-16-2012

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Reviewed 9/29. Thanks to Momar42 for the bottle! About 6 oz poured into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is a one finger offwhite color with somewhat thick bubbles and good retention. S: Fairly citrusy, but with that green piny note to it - Simcoe hops, perhaps? The darker malts dont really come through, but the citrusy profile redeems things. T: Much like the aroma, the citrusy flavors come through strongly. The first few sips are a bit questionable in its balance and drinkability, but once this opens up, it becomes quite pleasant in conjunction with the rye malts. Further sips show some chocolate in its profile. This *is* an older bottle, but still very enjoyable, if a little lacking in complexity. M: Pretty dry - thank you rye malts - and drinkable. Its not too heavy or light either way in terms or body, nor is it overcarbonated. O: Its another "man, this could have been AMAZING" fresh situation with this. Right now, though, its still really damn good. Ill be on the lookout for a fresh bottle/keg of this.

Malty with a bitter aftertaste. Hops show through as you continue drinking. Very interesting beer. The hops show through after the initial malty bitter flavor. Well balanced, best rye IPA Ive tasted yet.

BillKismet (3976) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Appears like a glass brimming with liquid chocolate and a thin white verdisgris cover. Wonderful piney hop nose surrounded in a layered forest of clean, roasty black barley. Leather and medium-dark chocolate notes. Entrancing. The body is piney and boozy. Certainly more rough around the edges than the aroma presaged. Sticky roast adheres to the back of the palate. Ends with an off-key, sour-bitter twang.
