Drink Firestone Walker Wookey Jack

20160814:
First, I should note that this beer is at least a year old. It, along with a handful of other bottles of beer, was purchased prior to my reduced consumption of beer.


In any case, this beer had a carbonated mouthfeel and a bitter taste. In addition, there were some coffee notes and/or some rye notes hanging out in the background. 11:01PM PT

Black Rye IPA

A riff on the familiar Black IPA style, Wookey Jack is gnarly on the outside yet refined on the inside. Malted Rye and a dash of Cara Rye impart a spicy grain quality to the palate, while double dry-­‐hopping with Citra and Amarillo hops brings a citrusy dimension to the aroma profile. The brewing team also claims to have incorporated a bit of “Wookey Dust” into the recipe. The beer is black in color, but if you close your eyes and taste it, you’ll say it’s a true IPA. Wookey Jack is unfined and unfiltered to retain its woolly natural texture and character.

Unless indicated otherwise on the code date, our beer is best if enjoyed within 120 days of its bottling date.
