I've never heard that term before.
I've heard it commonly referred to as "Black IPA," and even occassionally "Cascadian IPA," but never "Colorado Dark Ale."
I notice you're in Colorado.
Does anybody outside of Colorado call it that? Is every state out there trying to take credit for the Black IPA style, or is it just Oregon and Colorado?
Isn't settling on a single, coherent, descriptive name for the style more important than the egos of the brewers in the states bickering over who gets credit for creating it?
Can we please all just call it "Black IPA?"
