I love black IPA's, in fact I just bottled my own black IPA recipe. Dogzilla and Stone's XI are delicious.

I had a bottle of Shiner Cheer at a party last year. I didn't dump it, but after one taste, I put the bottle down and walked away.

+1 to that. Had some this week and really liked it. The tasting notes said something like "Think Black IPA". It was lighter and thinner than most porters (in a good way) and the hoppiness was spot on.

I am not a huge IPA fan, I am growing into them, but I gotta say that I really like the 11th anniversery ale from Stone (Stone 11th Anniversary Ale) which is a dark IPA and mighty tasty and I am not a big stone fan either.

P.S. I know I have stone brews in my sig, but my friend is a huge stone fan (grew up in Escandido) so they are for him basically.

On Tap: 1. Kelly R. IPA, 2. Roter Hund Hefeweizen, 3. Bud Killer Blonde, 4. Red Dog Pale, 5. Roter Hund Oktoberfest, 6. Pumpkin Ale, 7. McRed's Stout (with new nitro system and stout tap,) Cream Soda, 8. ESB # 3, & 9. Ordinary Bitter.

I was in San Francisco a week or so ago and visited the 21st Amendment, and they had a black IPA on tap...Back in Black I think it was called. I don't know if they actually referred to it as a black IPA, but that's what it was. It was pretty good actually.
Tap 1:Traditional Bock
Tap 2:Robust Porter
Tap 3:California Common
Tap 4:Old Ale
Tap 5:IPA

I have got ten gallons of a Black IPA that is just not that good. There is nothing really wrong with the beer, it just tastes a little wrong to have roasted malts and lots of hops. Kind of bitter and burnt. Not good. I am hoping that it will improve with age. I'll check back with it in about six months.

I've dumped bottles of New Belgium's Abbey ale, North Coast's Brother Thelonius, and Furthermore's Thermorefur. Don't feel bad. You can also use the beer for a marinade.

On Deck
Modified Warbler Pale Ale (with wet-hop addition&different yeast)
