Homebrew Brad’s Perfected Black IPA

I’ve made this beer a few times.  After a few iterations a while ago, I honed it in to be where I wanted it, hence the name.  This particular batch I tried a slight  process variation on the dry hops, and it didn’t give me as great of a hop aroma as before.  So this one isn’t truly perfect…

Brown head of foam.  Decent hop aroma.  First drink gives a bite of dark malt, but is immediately backed up by bright hop flavor.  That then transitions out to a blended mix of hops and malt, with a mild dark malt aftertaste.  Still enjoyable.
