I think what Neil is getting at here is that his buddy brewed something like Denny's RIPA or Waldo Lake Amber and then changed up the established recipe, but is still calling it by the accepted name. 

So yeah, I'd agree that if he's made significant changes to a 'famous' homebrew recipe, then he should call it something else.  Kind of a branding issue in a way.  Like the fake Brewdog pub in China.
Denny's Wry Smile IPA made by replacing Mt. Hood with Liberty would be hard to detect. Replace MT. Hood with Citra, then rename it.

As long as he is not calling it a Blonde Stout or a Black India Pale Ale I'm good.  ;)


LOL! ;D

A pale ale losing points for being too pale is like a vicar being defrocked for being too godly. It is no wonder that beer judges get such a bad rap.  - Graham Wheeler
