AG8 – Indian Ink – Award Winner

This one’s a Black IPA. Yes you read that correctly, a Black India Pale Ale. It’s not pale, hence the name for this beer. The Brewer’s Association in the US has decided that the style should be called American Black Ale for the moment. The BJCP has yet to decide on whether to categorize this, so for the moment it should be entered as a specialty beer in competition.

This recipe is based on the Kernel Brewery’s Black IPA, which is supposedly based on 21st Ammendment’s Back in Black.

This beer won the 2011 Bristol Beer Factory Homebrew Competition.

IPA – India Pale Ale

A higher alcohol and hoppier version of a pale ale.  Originally brewed in Britain it was designed to be able to keep for the long sea voyage to India (the alcohol and hops allow it to keep better).  Traditionally, therefore, it’s a British beer style (recipe), but it’s one that has become popular in the US, and has been taken in a whole new direction.  In fact, some American IPA‘s have become where the brewer’s have really pushed the envelope with hoppiness.  The sub styles Imperial IPA and Double IPA (really the same thing) have been created with higher alcohol and hop levels too, and there’s even some brown and dark IPA’s out there.


Harpoon IPA Clone

I’m currently in the US, where IPA is a very fashionable style.  Harpoon IPA is a good example, and I’ve put a clone recipe on Hopville.
