4.28/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Wookey pours a deep deep brown but one can also see some garnet highlights below the tall beige head. The head is dense and pocketed with large bubbles. Some good sticky lacing is left behind.
Aroma is quite hoppy, in the citrus/floral vein. Malts have a very slight roasted smell. Perhaps even spicy rye.
In the taste the first thing I noticed, really slapped in the face, was the bitterness. Quite bitter. Hops have a mild citrus taste but are light and understated. Malts balance and hoist the hops well.
Since there is rye malts in the brew I was expecting some spiciness but couldn't find any. Roasted malts sutle and are complementory and not overpowering.
The feel of the beer I think is the weak point. It was smooth and soft but almost to the point of being flat. It weighted heavy on the palette and drink semi bitter. Had the mouthfeel of a Guiness.
Overall it's good. I like the way the roasted malts were sutle and complementory and understated, not overpowering. Some BIPA's are borderline porters and stoudts in my opinion, not that that,s a bad thing.
