It's also more hoppy with some Cascade hops along with Mt. Hood and Willamette and Tettnanger from the garden than a typical Belgian dark strong. Probably not IPA strong however. But out of style...

I used to have a friend like that. Miller Lite flat drunk. Thinks my award winning HB is barely drinkable as he smugly chugs that swill.

Does that make me a beer snob, or just not willing to...

Personally I'd stay away from 14A for a rye IPA. In fact just stay away from14A unless a major killer American IPA. Even a damn good English IPA won't beat US-05 and some great American hops.
