COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the Colorado hop growers prove they can produce world class hops, we as a Colorado craft brewer want to showcase what our state can offer, not only with the ingredients used in crafting them. Mountain Standard Double Black IPA showcases the homegrown hops our brewers helped pick from farms along Colorado’s western slope. MST pours committingly dark with a light brown head and a slightly roasted hoppy nose. An ephemeral bitterness, the result of combining roasted malts with an assertive American hop profile, contributes to MST’s act of balance and harmony within nature or your glass. As the season’s darkness sets in why shouldn’t your beer become darker as well?

Tripplebrew (774) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Pours an opaque espresso brown with frothy tan tinged head. Aroma is a mix of spruce, nut, toasted bread and caramel. Flavor is a mix of spruce, brown sugar and raisin definitely present. Coffee undertone. Body is creamy but with very active carbonation.

mar (4778) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Pitch black with a khaki head. Nose is roasted malts, chocolate, fudge, and great citrus notes. Very smooth on the palate, heavy chocolate, fudge, rich malts, and a hop note in the finish.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Pours like the blackest of coffee with a finger of tan head and indiscernible beading. Nice lacing. This beer is extremely well balanced, atypical of the style. Roasted black malts are blanketed with an understated mix of hops. Nose caries through to the tongue. Comes across more as a "hoppy something darker" than a "darker something hoppy" - quite tasty though. The feel is suitable, as is the carbonation. Overall, a well-balanced Cascadian Dark Ale ;)

chicowv (455) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2012
12 oz bottle: Pours dark, mostly black with hints of dark brown around the edges. Nice tan head, dissipates but still has penty of CO2 release. Aroma is hoppy, mostly cirtus and floral with a slight toasted bread and doughy quality. Taste is nice and hop forward, complex and well balanced with the roasted malts. Smooth, slightly bubbly, almost oily from all the hops. Great offering, probably my favorite Odell to date.

Arizona strong beer festival. Good blend of pine and citrus, with nice toasted undertones. Not too bitter.

pinkzambia (1427) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Tap: Dark color with reddish tints. Dry, hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit and dry pine needles. A bitter-sweet taste with notes of leather followed by mild hop bitterness. Quite enjoyable.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle thanks to jdskinns: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing froth of light tan head. Has a slightly oxidized caramel malty nose with some piny hop notes. Starts with good fullness and sweet caramel and pale malts with a healthy amount of resiny hops and good bitter balance before a bittersweet lightly toasted finish. Apart from the oxidation in the nose, this is a pretty good black IPA.

madvike (2659) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle - Pours clear dark brown with a thin light tan head. Citrusy hops on the nose, with a nice sharp boozy note, resiny pine hops, and not lots of malt. Taste is really hoppy, with lots of citrus and pine--not much malt. This sucker has the focus on the hops and a bit of chocolate malt. Smooth and medium fluffy body. Another solid Odell brew.
