Firestone Walker Brewing Co. Wookey Jack
From: Paso Robles, CA
John Holl says: Some call this style Cascadian Dark, but Firestone Walker goes with the more common (and oxymoronic) Black India Pale Ale. Specifically, it's a Black Rye IPA, best served fresh so the rye and dark roasted malts mingle with a citrusy lushness of Amarillo and Citra hops. With a kick of spice as well, it demands deeper consideration from those who drink.
