Black IPA?
« on: May 24, 2010, 12:58:39 PM »
Ok so when doing a black IPA is it just adding a little black patent or chocolate to recipe or is there more to it?

There was some discussion of this in the recipe section a little while ago.

I still don't really understand the point of this "style", just coloring an IPA (india PALE ale, right?) with almost flavorless dark malts.  Same beer, different color...I just don't understand.
*Tapped:
Peach/Raspberry Ale 4.5%/18IBU (6/6/10)
Golden Promise IPA (Keg #2) - 5.8%/73IBU (7/3/10)
Jason's Ball & Chain - 6.4%/63IBU (7/17/10)
All His Merry Men - 4.9%/23IBU (8/1/10)
Citra Amber Ale - 4.8%/23IBU (8/1/10)

Thats why mine has roasted malts and brown malt.

It probably wont fit the style guidline when they put one for it in the BJCP though  :-[

Will you be able to fit it into the American Brown Ale catagory?  At least it will be a beer with it's own character.

Maybe they should just up the IBU's in that catagory to 60...just my opinion.

Go fer it.. of course then you'll have to deal with the style Nazis who want you to be brewing an RIS if you want a black and super strong beer.

Sure, no argument there...I guess I just haven't found a black IPA yet that makes me go "wow, I want to drink that" when I look at it.
