I'm going to protest by brewing only Standard Old Average Pale Ales. SOAP Ale is going to be the new it thing one day, you just watch

hey all - final update on this one (which I actually named Hops on Pumpernickel)

scored a 41.5 2 weekends ago, didn't medal, but that's ok - specialty category can be a bit tough these days - great comments - only suggestion was the one judge wanted to see more roast or chocolate character in the nose and flavor, but I disagree with him there as i feel I get a hint and that's all I am looking for.

I still have a couple gallons left and its tasting mighty nice.

Roast and/or chocolate should not be in the flavor profile of a Black DIPA.  Just the dark color.  That's why we used the Black Prinz in ours.

Just heard an interview with Strong saying the new guidelines will have Specialty IPA broken down into Black, Belgian, and Rye; and Session, Standard, and Imperial for each.

That's gonna make it damn hard for me to b**** about those not being real styles.....

@ThirstyMonk - come on down!

Looking back, that recipe looks great, Paul. Did you stick with the original hop schedule? I remember you were trying to decide.

Jon - i am pretty sure I did - I will check my log tonight and will post back.

I checked last night and I did stick with the recipe as posted in the first post, with the exception of going 3oz simcoe, 3oz columbus and 2oz citra in the DH.

overshot my gravity a little, 1.080 but also finished higher than i intended at 1.018.   I would have preferred a lower finish - the rye already gives it a perception of a bigger body - i think 1.014 would have landed it nicely - next time will mash lower and longer I think.

I initially thought your hops would be a little fruity for this, but in consideration of the Rye's spiciness, you may strike the right balance and prevent it from being too fruity or too spicy. Good luck!
