According to Jamil & Tasty, there used to be Texas brewers who drove out to CA 40-50 years ago to buy supplies... And they brewed a black IPA they called a California IPA. Just goes to show... There are no new beers, just new egos

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

You have the "Black IPA" name :-) I prefer our "Cascadian IPA's" out here in REAL beer country :-)

Well I'm partial to Cascadian Dark as a name myself, but I heard the first "Black IPA" came from the dark side of the moon. I think it's documented in some lyrics recorded backwards on the Pink Floyd Album of the same name. It really wasn't black after all, but they couldn't tell the difference in the dark of space.

I prefer Cascadian Dark Ale. Piling any hoppy beer into the IPA category is going to make the term useless. I wouldn't care if color were the only difference, but if you put chocolate, or black malt, or any other darkening malt aside from caramel in it, it's a different beer. Should we categorize all beers strictly by the hops and hop schedule? Is a Marzen an IPA if you c-hop it?
I guess I don't see the value of bragging rights to confusing terminology. On the other hand, if it's good beer I'll drink it, whatever you call it.

Personally, I prefer to give credit to the actual creator of something, not who screams the loudest when fighting over it.

OK, ABG, I've got to brew one of those. I don't care who was first at making it, I know who will be next!

I am sure that The Vermont Pub & Brewery made one of the first if not the first commercial version of this style but I am sure that hundreds of people tried something similar to it before they did it. I mean before I even knew what a CDA/BIPA was I thought damn I should try and make a really hoppy dark beer "I bet no one ever thought of that before" two or three months later I had Hop in the Dark from Deschuettes was proven wrong.
