    Thanks for doing this.

    I have a bottle of a juicy ipa I can send.
    Will send you a pm now. Maybe a little past it's best come tasting but I am still enjoying them

    Is a black IPA an American Pale?

    I have a mosaic SMaSH but my batch priming went pear-shaped. I’m considering entering, but there is a good chance you’ll get a gusher or something flat as a pancake and slightly oxidised. I’ve had 3 gushers so far, and the rest of the bottles I’ve opened have been split around 50:50 between beautifully carbonated and disgusting flat messes.

    I’ll PM if I decide to risk it!

    I would say yes. It could also be entered into the black beers category
