I think that is fair.

Not that this will take anything one way or the other, but the TTB has just approved use of Cascadian Dark Ale...

Well, you can pretty much name a beer anything you want, as long as its not obscene right? The Government isn't looking at BJCP styles to allow people to name beer.

No, they're not looking at BJCP guidelines, but they are very picky. They have rejected some of our labels simply for putting Product of the USA on the darn thing. As I said, I know this wasn't going to sway one way or the other, but it is interesting that the TTB approved.

And you are right -- that flavour description is terribly worded. I think they mean a balance of flavours, although hop flavour should be most prominant. Presumably the beer should also be well balanced with respect to hop BITTERNESS and dryness from the roast malt and the malt sweetness. They don't actually say this, but of the two commercial examples I have tasted in the style examples that would seem to be true.
WOAH! A fellow canadian I see! I love phillips beer... and I tried Black Touque before I started brewing and my hop tolerance was WAYYYY low. It kicked my a$$ like a sidekick from chuck norris. But I now love it

Amnesiac is an awesome beer by Phillips as well.

The way the TTB works you're always concerned about what they will do.

I don't like Cascadian Dark Ale, or Black IPA.

I just brewed one that will be over 8% abv. So is mine an "Imperial Cascadian Dark Ale". That's a mouthful.

AMERICAN DARK ALE kind of covers all the bases, no? Sounds great, guys. Thanks.

No.

Half of Cascadia is in Canada so American Dark Ale does not fit.
