Here's what I came up with last night after reading a bunch of recipes. Thoughts?
14.0# Colorado 2-Row (90%)
0.75# Crystal 60-L (5%)
0.75# Carafa III Dehusked (5%)
60 min. - 1.0 oz Warrior
15 min. - 1.0 oz Simcoe
15 min. - 1.0 oz Amarillo
5 min. - 1.0oz Simcoe
5 min. - 1.0oz Amarillo
7 day dry hop - 2.0 oz Cascade
7 day dry hop - 2.0 oz Simcoe
YLabs California Ale
1 Whirlfloc tablet @ 15 min.
Looks awesome! The only thing id add is a flameout/whirlpool hop addition for increased hoppy awesomeness
It's definitely in the more straightforward black IPA style than the almost-a-hoppy-porter kind of black IPA I prefer.
I would move the five minute additions to knockout. You're getting flavor at fifteen and losing a little aroma at five.
Just a little tip. If you're just looking for dark color, adds the Carafa III the last 10 mins of the mash. Otherwise, your can use it all the way through and get some of the roast flavor.
Looks great, but I would add one more ounce of Warrior at 60 mins
Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.

I added 1oz of black patent to a similar recipe, hoping for a slight bite to go with the hops, no idea what to really expect. Used midnight wheat for color, because thats what I had. Kegging in the next couple days.
