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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 26, 2013
22oz served in a Sam Adams perfect pint A - Dark brown with a small mocha colored head. The head stays active and forms a thin ceiling of bubbles that stays until the last sip. S - Pungent hops, green pine, orange, grapefruit, rye really comes out strong as it warms up. T - Roasted wet grain, orange and grapefruit oils, some sappy pine mixed in, sharp rye really stand out and adds a sharp earthiness. Theres a faint smokey character, some sweet citrus, finishes with green, resinous, hop bitterness. M - Medium carbonation, medium body, dry finish. Nice pungent hop aroma with a nice roasty background. The rye really shined here and mix well with the hop profile. Good stuff. I did a blind taste test with another Black Rye IPA and the Wookey was the better of the two. Serving type: bottle 03-16-2013

ordybill (1452) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a half pint glass. The appearance is a clear dark brown with a very large thick brown head. The aroma is hops, pine and some malt. The taste is a very strong blend of malt and hops with some detectable alcohol. A very good beer.

Zymurgeist2 (1916) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 12, 2016
I have historically loved this beer, and certainly would have rated it higher on previous tastings (not sure why i have not yet rated it). Spice and chocolate are the main aromas here, with floral hops in the back. Pours a deep, deep brown with garnet highlights and a large, sustained, dark tan head. There is moderate patterning down the glass and the head of small bubbles never leaves. Taste is roast and spice, missing the hops I remember from this beer. Medium-full mouthfeel, with an oily aspect to it and a dry finish. Great palate.

S_Side_Smitty (725) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Pours deep brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is pine & grapefruit with some weightiness. Taste is silky smooth with grapefruit rind bitterness and malts verging on bitter chocolate. The rye is blended beautifully. Nice, nice, nice! The sweetness is perfect. Unbelievable.

AgentAle (1570) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 27, 2016
Aroma is dark malts with slight rye-like spiciness, earthiness and toasted bread. Taste is again sweet and spicy malts with a rich earthy hip profile that is well balanced but still very much there from start to finish. Tart, citrus and pinecone rounds out the flavors on the tip. Appearance is a clear black with a light brown with a light brown head that retains quite well.

Tessic (1061) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2016
This black IPA poured a deep black colour with a light tan coloured head. Minimal lacing. Scents include hay hops, roasted malts and more hops! First swig was delicious with flavours of roasted malts, candy and flowery hops. Finish is medium bitter with slight floral taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pitch black with a big bubbly white head. Smell is pungent bitterness, lots of resin with some coffee and chocolate in the background. Liquorice, herbs, mint. Round and earthy. Taste is bitter ashy and dry, refreshing, crisp finish, cleansing. Crisp and smooth, hoppy, great balance. Elegant and subtle.
