Trout Hop Black IPA from Grand Teton Brewing is quite delicious, I might even like it better than Srone's, FWIW, I think Stone calls their Sublimely Self-Righteous a "black bitter" which is probably just a play on an english black IPA.
Either way Trout Hop is worhty of the title Balck IPA, one of the best I have had.
I have yet to try Abita's black IPA, but I have heard good things about it, regardless I definitely suggest giving Trout Hop a taste.
I made the recipe fromthe Brewing TV episode you mentioned, however I totally effed the water profile, I was going for Mosher's IPA with a reduction in the SO4, however, I somehow managed to add only half of the required brewing salts to my water. It turned out pretty good, but I am curious as to how it would have tasted given everything went off without a hitch. I also had higher than expected attenuation with the Pacman yeast, so it ended up being a ABV9% beer, still tasty, very slight alcohol at the very finish on the palette, but extremely drinkable. I actually had a bomber last night, good stuff. Decent recipe.
