beersk may have some anger issues to deal with, but i do think he's got a good point on the naming of the style. my local pub has been making a "black IPA" for quite some time and i live in holland, mi. i agree it should be called an "india black ale".
he he. if it's made with cannibis could it be called an "indica pale (or black) ale"?
I've never been the most subtle at getting my point across but I'm workin' on it. What a wonderful life it would be if we were all the people we strive to be so early on in life...
