Hey guys, please take a look at this and tell me if it has a chance to be decent...I'm fairly new to brewing (this will be my third batch) so please excuse if I left something out (just ask).

I'm going for a rye IPA with a little color to it but not quite black. Haven't really looked into any recipes, just throwing some stuff together.

13# 2 Row
2# Rye
4oz chocolate malt

I'll be using Chinook and Cascade hops, no more than 3 oz total, not sure yet when.

60 min boil

I also have on hand: Carafa I, black patent, and roasted barley.
