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?

Pours a dark brownish-black with a fairly thick head. Strong scent of pine in the aroma. Flavor is a nice combination of citrus and pine with some sweetness in the background and finish. This is a very good IPA.

It poured a dark color with a small tan head. The aroma was floral pine and some roasted scents. The taste was very good with some nice bitter hops which come off piney and a little roasted malt and earthy flavors. A very good Black IPA.

Bottle pours very dark brown with one finger khaki head. Smell is a little piney with lemony citrus and some sweetness from the grains. The taste is smooth a fairly light, a bit different than the nose. The grain is stronger than the hops and has a moderately strong roast. The hop flavor is mostly in the finish with a bitterness that competes with the grains and a light pine and citrus that letís it be smooth a malty but just enough bite to be an ipa. It is a clean beer with no off or extremely strong stand out flavors, just nice and mellow throughout. For the strength it does not show it. Another great brew from Odell.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark brown with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, chocolate, earthy hop with a small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good complex beer.

[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is very nice--lots of hops bursting out of the glass, particularly grapefruit rind and tangerine. Some roasted malt peeks through at times as well. Taste is quite hoppy up front--more pine than in the aroma--then almost a woody spiciness, some alcohol, and roasted malt. Quite full mouthfeel, somewhat dry, long finish. Overall, a fairly nice beer with good aroma...the taste Iím less crazy about. I guess I would prefer to try this as a "regular" IPA without the roasted malt, but it was interesting nonetheless.

Pours black with a thin head. Aroma of dark malt and very herbal hop aroma. Medium bodied with a nice mouth feel and tastes of malt and pretty bitter herbal hops. Very interesting, unique flavors, I like it.

arminjewell (8853) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Pour was dark brownish black with off white head, aroma brought notes of pine, grass, some toffee and caramel, hints of roast along with a sweetness from the citrusy notes. Taste is a mix of grapefruit, grass and pine bitter notes, some sweet toffee, caramel, roast and chocolate, finishes fairly bitter but smooth. Nicely done.
