Leo vs. Ursus: Wookus
Once thought to be extinct, the Wookey family comes roaring back with its wooliest progeny yet: an imperial black rye IPA that is wickedly hoppy, righteously spicy and fearsome in flavor. While exhibiting DNA from its Wookey Jack ancestry, Wookus offers next-generation attitude with amplified hop aromatics and a bit of rebellious dankness. The result is a beer that blends the familiar with the ferocious. Right out of Firestone Walker mythology and into your glass—behold the beast that we call Wookus.
Wookus is available for a limited time, after which it will yield to the next offering in the Leo v. Ursus chronology. Enjoy it as soon as possible.
Firestone Walker Brewing Company is a pioneering regional craft brewery founded in 1996 and located on the coast of California. Firestone Walker’s main brewery in Paso Robles produces a diverse portfolio ranging from iconic pale ales to vintage barrel-aged beers. The Barrelworks facility in Buellton makes eccentric wild ales, while the Propagator pilot brewhouse in Venice specializes in R&D beers and limited local offerings.
The beer pours rather nicely with decent carbonation with a very fine, thin beige head, with solid lacing. The aroma had a nice combo of roasty malts and pithy hops with a background nose of mildly bitter chocolate with a touch of cocoa powder. The hopping is almost overpowering with lots of resiny and piney notes hitting the palate.
