Firestone Walker Wookey Jack Black Rye IPA
Brewery: Firestone Walker Brewing Co.
Style: Black India Pale Ale (IPA)
Format: 650ml Bottle
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 flavour. 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.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Black, Hoppy, Dry - Awesome
This is an amazing black IPA...and the dryness the rye gives it is just a great bonus. If I could have this as a regular beer - I would. Fantastic. Not heavy burnt characters from the black malts, good hoppy bitterness and aromas.
Light roasted nose with hints of aniseed. Luxurious dense creamy mouthfeel. Subtle roasted flavours with slight rye bite. 8.3% well disguised.
Worth the wait
Had heard many reviews of this brew from the US. It didn't disappoint. The rye adds a nice spicy finish to an already complex style. Great beer, great brewery.
