"The Blackest Hop" by BrewAthlon | Chad'z Homebrew Reviews #15

Yes, another homebrew made by friend Chad aka "BrewAthlon". Being the comic book geek Chad is, he named this beer after the recent Green Lantern story arc "In Blackest Night." It IS a black IPA, after all so the name is appropriate I'd say. Here's Chad's description:

Brewed the Blackest Hop to take with me to a comic book show is named for the Blackest Night storyline which took place in the Green Lantern comic. I deviated from the original recipe and upped the hops and hopping schedule and used the Carafa III instead of roasted barley...
