Not a huge fan of Amarillo gold in a black IPA with those other hops thats just my opinion. Also with the added 1 pound of table sugar (not recommended)I would add some biscuit malt to even the flavor. Just my 2 cents. Black IPA's are one of my favorites. Good luck.

Not sure about the amarillos. Something in the same aa range but may blend well with the other hops is zythos. I've been very pleased with them... Just my thoughts. Interested to see what others say about the table sugar, I tend the stay away from it.

Brewing this up soon. Wookey Jack is my favorite BIPA, and consistently rates outstanding. Look at Skeezer's recipe for ideas.
