Hmm, that's kinda interesting. My hydro was a punch of hop flavor. How much toasted 2-row did you add? Also, what sort of IBU did you get from subbing Cascade?

Sort of brewed this yesterday. I did it as BIAB so I made a few changes. I upped the grain bill 15%, double milled, changed the hop schedule, and extended to a 90 minute boil due to my forgetting to rehydrate the yeast.

We shall see.

Total 110.4 IBU, toasted as per recipe. As it sits now, the beer's great. Kyle

I think I ignored your "15% grain bill increase" when I made that comment, haha.

Adamb, I'm not the OP, but I believe I'm the one that put in the toasted 2-Row. Looking back through my recipe log, it was supposed to go into an APA I was planning to do shortly after this brew. Turns out I crossed recipes a little bit. For me, the toasted really added a warm flavor after everything aged together a bit. Right now, the beer is very good, and the hops have jumped through quite a bit. Kyle

How "heavy" is this beer? And by that, I mean is it heavy in the way a stout would be. I've never had a black IPA so the dark color is really throwing off my sense of judgement! I plan to brew an IPA this weekend and this could be the one.

BTW...OP..the name ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!

Edit: Is there a BJCP style for this?

It's not really a "heavy" beer - you aren't going to get the same creamy mouthfeel you would from a stout. I'd liken it to a double IPA in terms of mouth texture. Black IPA is a great style, but BJCP doesn't have it officially noted yet (technically it's a "Cascadian Dark Ale").

Regarding toasting the 2-row - I didn't do it, but I'm sure you could. I tried to keep any flavors that would take away from hop flavor out of this brew, short of the usual ****.
