Merry Christmas to me! Not for now, but should get through it by Christmas night (except for the 2nd vertical epic that I'm going to cellar)

Mmmmmm......Wookey Jack. The first beer that left me speechless after the first sip.

The bar down the block from my LHBS has 2 for 1 until 7. I have my grains stuffed in my saddlebags and my dry yeast in my jacket pocket.

Seems like people really like this beer. Im a big fan of their Union and Double jack, but the whole dark, or black IPA thing for me just doesnt work. Was not a big fan of the Wookey. Maybe I need to try it again and make sure haha. More research indeed!

What was it that you didn't like about it specifically? It is also a rye beer, but I thought the dark malts were very subdued. Almost no roast character at all. It absolutely reeked of pungent Columbus hops though, and I know some people aren't fond of them.

St. Austell Proper Job IPA.

Pretty tasteless, no hoppy aromatics, no head retention, under-carbonated.

It's a shame really; the beer in a production sense is fine; no off-flavours (well, maybe a little out of place yeasty character), well balanced, a little sweet. They really just need to wang a few more hops in at end of boil and dry hop to add some flavour, aroma and head retention.

Here's the vacation cellar stash. I'll keep one of the 17s and the Chimay for some extended aging though. Also got the rest of my Ballast Point Sculpin 6er in the fridge.
