Black IPA
 
Has anyone had success brewing up a black IPA?

I fell in love with the Victory Yakima Twilight and my local Breweries, Iron Hill, Black IPA and would love to try one out for a new homebrew.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

One of the earliest brews I made was Jon Maier's Blackened Brutal Bitter kit from morebeer.com. It's very good stuff. The recipe is pretty easy to find out there.

"It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child."

Such a strange concept. Who else besides Steve could come up with a Black India Pale Ale?

I am planning a clone of the Stone 11th Anniversery for fall. It is a Black IPA

Stone 11th Anniversary Ale

Here is a thread on here of trying to get the clone down.

I make a red one (just throw in a little black patent), but it's certainly not enough to change the flavor. I've never tried a black IPA, but I've kinda toyed with the concept.

I guess I need to track one of these down. The concept just sounds disgusting to me. Is it an IPA with enough BP to make it black, or is it a hoppy stout?

i did one with leftovers from a bunch of grains and hops i had. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/everything-but-kitchen-sink-ipa-help-87018/
honestly at first it was really bad, the malt wasn't in ballance with the hops and it just had this funky taste to it. After about a month and a half if not longer everything melded and its quite good. I used the carafa to cap the mash with when i sparged to add color but i didint use enough and it turned out very dark but not black. Its very enjoyable at this point though but it did take a few months

I've had one from Iron Horse Brewery (Ellensburg, WA) http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f121/iron-horse-black-ipa-91538/

I wouldn't call it a hoppy stout, it's difficult to describe. Definitely IPA like, but the dark malts were there.

I had one from Tied House in San Jose which was horrible. It tasted like a burnt stout with a bitter kick at the end, not very subtle at all.

I believe Stone makes one called Subliminally Self Righteous. I had this at a double IPA festival. It was my first experience with a black IPA and was very surprised to have a beer look like a stout/porter, but taste like a double IPA.

My guess would be to add some BP or dark Crystal Malt to your IPA recipe to give it some color.
