Default Brewed up this beast of a black IPA last night

So I "cleared house", so to speak, last night. I had some freezer hops that were browning, and random grain from craigslist that needed taken care of. Specifically debittered black malt. I had bits and pieces of hops packets from previous batches, so I also used the hops substitution chart to add in additional late-addition substitutions. I needed about .5oz of cascade and had nothing left other than 1oz of centennial for the last addition, so I said screw it and just added the whole thing. A bit over the top, perhaps, but this was meant to be an experimental brew

Started off as a Centennial/Columbus/Cascade black IPA, ended up a bit more exotic. I only had to buy carapils and yeast, so I'm happy! That debittered black malt is tasty, man.

Here's the original recipe before I destroyed it: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/back-black-ipa-201543/index2.html#post3207047

Code:
OG 1.065
FG 1.016
IBU 100+
SRM 53
Safale US-05 w/ starter

3 gallons all grain

Mash 154F, Ferment 63F

%	LB	OZ	MALT OR FERMENTABLE	PPG	°L
76%	7	0	 American Two-row Pale	37	1	~
10%	0	15	 Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L	34	60	~
10%	0	14	 Dingemans Debittered Black malt	34	550	~
4%	0	6	 Dextrin (CaraPils) Malt	33	2	~

dry hop	7 days	0.5	 Centennial	pellet	10.0
dry hop	7 days	0.5	 Nugget	pellet	13.0
dry hop	7 days	0.5	 Simcoe	pellet	13.0
I'd never buy this many hops out right, so I'll probably never make another IPA like this again until I actually start growing hops. Hopefully it turns out wonderfully!
