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?

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 On tap 1/19/2013. Appearance is dark brown with a thin frothy head and little lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine with plenty of malt character too. Taste starts off malty and sweet with a nice bready flavor and then a great hoppy grapefruit character with little bitterness. Excellent black IPA.

Deep brown with a good sized beige head. Aroma is of pine, roasted malts, dank. Taste is coffee, lots of chocolate, pine, a hint of orange zest, and tree bark.

(12oz bottle) medium clear brown, lasting tan head. Nose is super dank, Weed nuggets, grapefruit peel. Taste is dank, rich malt, citrus. Awesome. Syrupy.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours a deep almost black with just a hint of brownish amber when you hold up to the light. Medium creamy tan head that laced. Aroma of oranges, milk chocolate dipped oranges with a hint or caramel or toffee bits. Great hop nose. Hop flavor profile is great too. Mostly citrus pine and hints of floral hops. Bitterness is there buy nicely "restrained". Def IPA territory without being too much. Malts come together nicely. Roast level is low to none which again makes for one of the best black IPAs I have had to date!

beerbastard (841) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2013
12oz. bottle that poured a clear dark brown with a creamy tan head. The nose is a mixture of orange like hops with roasty caramel malts. Roasted flavors with chocolate in the background balanced out with piney hops. Nice palate with a clean finish, which is the only time I noticed the alcohol.

Opaque dark brown beer. Amazing head! A quick swirl left a perfect spiral galaxy shape in the pale tan head! Typical Odell deftness and balance. Sotfish and semi dry palate. Fresh creamy dark malt well balanced with piney smooth hops. Just a trace of hop fruit. Smooth finish. Very well joined up.

On tap at Odell on 12/22. Pours a deep brown color with off-white head. Roasty, piney, grassy, slight cocoa flavors. One of the better black IPAs in my book.

dalekliz (907) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On draft at the brewery. Pours a murky dark golden-brown with off-white lacing. Aroma of pine hops and dark malt. Taste starts with a hoppy bitter bite then gets kind of watery, with some pine and sugar. Lingering light bitter pine notes. Eh, there’s not much going on here.

MacBoost (1723) - Penfield, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours a dark ruby red with a thin khaki head. Aromas of floral hops, some roast and oddly enough, coffee. Taste is pretty standard for a black ipa, but the thin mouthfeel really detracts from this one. Meh.
