Thanks for the inspirational recipe!
Here was my take on this AWSOME beer

5 Gal AG Batch:

10.5 LBS 2 row pale
.5 LBS Crystal 60L
1 LBS Midnight Wheat (new grain made for BIPAS)
1 LB Corn sugar

.75 OZ Magnum 60 minutes
.5 OZ Chinook 45 Minutes
.75 OZ Nugget 35 Minutes
1 OZ Cascade 30 Minutes
1 OZ Cascade 15 Minutes
1 OZ Chinook Flame Out

Dry hop with 2 OZ Cascade for 10 Days

Primary 3 weeks
Secondary 5 Weeks
Kegged with priming sugar 2 weeks

Was going for a Big west coast BIPA , That was as much grain I could fit in my 5 GAL mash tun. I used a big starter of Safale 05 and pitched at 62F. I had a OG of 1.070 and a FG of 1.011 for a ABV of 7.7 .

I can honestly say this is the best beer i have brewed and my personal favorite. I was a little afraid it was going to be to hoppy, but it balanced perfect with the Midnight wheat flavor which is smooth and creamy.

All I got to say is "dang!". Been sitting on this one since April and down to a few bottles. Popped the top on one today and this thing is a real winner. Only deviation from the OPs recipe was 8oz of chocolate malt and I mashed the Carafa III for the entire 60 minutes. This is a HUGE beer with a pile of roast/chocolate/bitterness backed up by a hefty 9% ABV. Oh, and the head on this beer? You could bounce a quarter off it...check out the pic. I'm down to three 12 oz bottles and I'm going to hang on to them till the next local comp...
Crap...not a very good pic...this hog is midnight-black, very clear and just flat-out righteous.

This brew turned out fantastic! The head on it is gorgeous and lasts forever! Hop flavor and aroma is delicious and perfect! I recently tried a local brewery's BIIPA and found it, while enjoyable, much too roasty. Like 2 minutes after a sip all I can taste still is roast. Contrast to here there is very little roasted character despite being pitch black. I brewed this up again, 3 gallon batch, and added in 6oz of black malt to get a little more roast into the recipe which is something I think I'd really like for this recipe. Can't wait to see how it turns out, this will definitely be a regular brew!
