Default Question

I was looking at the rules for the up coming NHB competition, and it's still seems to be using the 2008 BJCP guidelines. I would like to enter my Black IPA, and I know the BJCP added this in 2011 to it's style guide. Does anyone know which category to enter a Black IPA in?

Suggestion - put more than "question" in your thread title.


I've looked on the official BJCP site and see no mention of udpated guidelines. I would think the official site would update it's official standing on this - so first question - where did you hear there are new guidelines approved?

Until we all know that there are new guidelines, it's probably going to have to be in 23. Specialty Beers

AFAIK the BJCP has not formally adopted the Black IPA style yet. I may be wrong.

I originally heard about the style guide change on Brewing TV during their CDA episode. I looked it up online and it did show it added to the 2011 updates to the BJCP, it wad added to the American IPA category. But it may not be formally adopted yet, or I just read it wrong.

The Brewers Association has adopted guidelines for an "American-Style India Black Ale" but I see nothing settled for the BJCP.
