Browse through the recipe database. You can't have a "dark pale" recipe though. It's either one or the other. I would checkout amber/brown recipes or some porters.

I think he was referring to the new Black IPA or "colorado dark ale" that's been all the rage recently.

I don't really have one off the top of my head, but I've been thinking about it recently as well. I think you have two potential routes you could take;

-A standard IPA recipe with just enough debittered black malt (such as Carafa 2 special) to give it a black color but very little flavor.

- A nice roasty black beer like a stout with the hop profile of an IPA.

Those will be two very different beers though, and it's really up to you to decide which one you prefer. I honestly can't decide either and it's been bothering me haha. I'm thinking a trip to the local beer emporium for some taste testing might be in order!

I've never heard that term before.

I've heard it commonly referred to as "Black IPA," and even occassionally "Cascadian IPA," but never "Colorado Dark Ale."

I notice you're in Colorado.

Does anybody outside of Colorado call it that? Is every state out there trying to take credit for the Black IPA style, or is it just Oregon and Colorado?

Isn't settling on a single, coherent, descriptive name for the style more important than the egos of the brewers in the states bickering over who gets credit for creating it?

Can we please all just call it "Black IPA?"

I'm probably the only person who calls it a Colorado Dark, and I do it tongue in cheek because I think it's hilarious that the Hipsters from the PNW just decided to claim credit for a beer style they didn't invent. So screw it, I'll do the same.

However I disagree with you that Black IPA should be the moniker. You can't have "dark" and "pale" in the same name without sounding like you suffer from some sort of mental deficiency. So let the debate continue, but I would be perfectly happy with something like "American Dark Ale."

Some individual towns, too... anybody remember Stone's "Escondidian Dark Ale" they brewed as their 15th anniversary beer? This being Stone, it was a fabulous beer, with its tongue planted quite firmly in its cheek. Kinda hope they brew it again, some day...

Sorry! I get it, but a recipe that is nice and pale and also nice and dark?????....bwahahahahahahaha!


Wait....A black and pale! lol.
Sorry.

BLACK IPA is what you are looking for. Yes it also says PALE and BLACK but "IPA" has a DEEP DEEP meaning. It means a bitter/hoppy beer. No one says "India Pale Ale", so Black IPA is paleteable.
