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 Coloradoís 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 MSTís act of balance and harmony within nature or your glass. As the seasonís darkness sets in why shouldnít your beer become darker as well?

I donít normally like a black IPA, but this is a double black IPA and is one of the best offerings in this style. The Hoppy Feet 1.5 is a close second to this. Odell just makes good beer, and this is nothing different. The beer has a nice balanced hoppy aroma to it, and a lovely mouthfeel. The finish is smooth, light bubbles, and leaves the palate refreshed. You wold never realize this is over 8% ABV.

sherm1016 (1271) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Draft at Devilís Advocate in Minneapolis. Pours a dark, dark brown color with a tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is hoppy, mostly pine, some grapefruit citrus. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, chocolate with just a little touch of roasted malt, lots of pine hops, a hint of citrus, and a clean, bitter pine finish. Nice intersection is chocolate and pine.

Extra from toomanybeers. Pretty good stuff. Nice blend of malt and hops. Slight citrius and slight floral. Medium body and easy to drink. Seems way lighter than 9.5. Not in same league as dubhe or wookey but next step down.

Dark black. Near perfect balance of bitterness, malt and hop fruit. Damn good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - JAN 25, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 One of my favorite ABAs. Restrained dark complexities balance assertive but respectful citrusy hop notes to create an outstanding ale. After a days work, this is at the top of my list. Earthy, bold, balanced, and satisfying. To take this up a notch, it does just fine in the frig for several months. I actually prefer it fresh, or with about three months of 40į on it. Self-righteous definitely isnít doing that.

Pours brownish black color with tan head. Aromas of lightly roasted malts, citrus and pine. Lots of grapefruit and pine flavors with some roastiness and moderate bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation.

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - JAN 24, 2013
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.
