I forgot where I read that at this years GABF in September the Black IPA category will be one that pro brewers can enter into. It would be nice if we here on this homebrew community forum could have access to the new Black IPA style guidelines they will be judged by. Maybe they're available some where and I just haven't looked hard enough.
58. American-Style India Black Ale
American-style India black ale has medium high to high hop bitterness, flavor and aroma with medium-high alcohol content, balanced with a medium body. The style is further characterized by a moderate degree of caramel malt character and medium to strong dark roasted malt flavor and aroma. High astringency and high degree of burnt roast malt character should be absent. Fruity, floral and herbal character from hops of all origins may contribute to aroma and flavor.
