This style has had plenty of different names so far, "Black India Pale Ale ( Black IPA)", "Cascadian Dark Ale"...

But the name that the GABF used for their category this year and the one I'll probably stick with is "India Black Ale".

I'm new to brewing and have never had a black ipa or even designed a recipe , but I think the malt looks similar to edwort's pale ale. 3# Vienna? I would swap a pound or 2 for Munich instead for more malty sweetness.

Drink...I believe the full name of that style as used by the GABF is American Style India Black Ale.

Would malty sweetness be desired in a standard IPA?

Not really, no.

You want a balanced malt backbone but the hops should be the star of the show IMO.

That's what makes a black IPA different from a hoppy stout - there's less of a malt profile however you do still get a hint or roastiness.

So have you brewed it yet? I just finished a Stone Sublimely Self Righteous Ale, which I think is somewhat similar but with about 8.7% alcohol, 90 IBUs, Chinook, Amarillo, and Simcoe. It was the best black IPA ever! I'm pretty clear that their dry hopping was off the chart!

Anyway, let us know how yours turned out!
