(Makes 5 gallons) MoreBeer! is proud to release this Black IPA recipe designed by our local homebrew Club D.O.Z.E.
After winning the AHA Homebrew Club Of The Year in 2010, the Diablo Order Of Zymiracle Enthusiasts (DOZE) put their minds together to collectively craft a beer they felt representative of the club and its brewers. The initiative was taken on as an all club project that spanned 5 months. In the end, over 50 members contributed ideas to this recipe and nearly 40 individual batches brewed by 23 DOZE members were tasted and refined to a single recipe. This beer is inspired by the style many refer to as Cascadian Dark Ale or Black IPA, however it is not intended to fit the mold of any particular guideline. Mostly it is big, dark, hoppy, and delicious.
The recipe was coined 'Diablo Dark Ale' in honor of our near by Mt. Diablo. Members of the Diablo Order of Zymurical Enthusiasts live in various cities located at the base of this great mountain. Also the location where many of us from MoreBeer! go mountain biking when we get the chance.
