To dry hop a Black IPA?

Postby spgriffin » Fri Jul 16, 2010 8:11 am

I am doing a black IPA and have 5 hop additions starting from 75 minutes to flame out. Should I dry hop or would that be overkill? The final IBUs are about 52-53. I start with Chinook go to Centennial and then a couple of Cascades. I was thinking of dry hopping with Cascade but now I am concerned it will be too hoppy/floral.

Thoughts? I know many say it depends on what you want and while true, I just don't want to overkill this.

BYO magazine just did an article on Cascadian Dark Ale. They call it the birth of a new style. It is on their website. Check it out; maybe it will point you in an interesting direction. http://www.byo.com/stories/issue/articl ... n-dark-ale

Read it, thanks. I think I will go ahead and dry hop with Centennial and Cascade. I'll let you know how this turns out.
