Yeah, seems there's always some homebrewer out there pushing the envelope. Early last year Russ brewed up his interpretation of a Black IPA with smoked malt, lotsa hops, rye malt and well go read about it for yourself. Brewed for a homebrew, food and art pairing event to boot. Never heard of such a thing, cool. Thanks for passing that along Russ.
Most importantly I like that you don't typically get into IPAs and decided to take the theme for the event in a different...shall we say nonconfermist direction.
