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?

Tasted on 1/18/11 from a 750mL corked and caged bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours very dark but clear brown with a massive beige head that slowly recedes to leaving a thick and even blanket of lace. The nose is very bitter and resinous hops with some caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, and roasted malt undertone. The flavor is sweet up front with molasses and brown sugar, moving to the roasted chocolate and coffee, and finishing with the resinous hops bitterness. The body is full and creamy with lively carbonation and a long molasses and hops bitterness finish.

Nearly black pour with a foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit peel, citrus and floral hops, roasted malt, and a bit of cocoa. Flavor roasted coffee and malt up front, with a nice hop bitterness coming through on the finish. Delicious!

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a dark brown/black color with a massive tan head of at least 3 fingers that is very slow to recede. The head is a little annoying as I canít take a sip for quite a while. Head leaves lace as it settles. Hoppy aroma of slight citrus with a little hint of booze. Medium mouthfeel. The hops have a decent profile from start to finish. Iím surprised how present the alcohol is in this. Some roast as well. Decent flavors.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Dark brown with a big funky tan head. Aroma is all hops and there are plenty of them. Flavor is nice citrus and funky roasted notes. It is bready, piney, and funky. Interesting and tasty.

Odellís nailed it with this one! They truly perfected the most popular style of the year in this beer. Beautiful aroma draws you in. Great balance between big hop flavor and dark roasted malt. Alcohol is well masked and I had no problem finishing the 750ml bottle. Great logo and package too!

750 cork n cage. pours dark brown with creamy light tan head. aroma is citrus, pine, and a bit of fresh green. mouthful has big hops up front with the pine and citrus doing good things. the roasted malt is not quite as big a finisher as some other BIPAs... perhaps its the Impy.... in the BIPA ... very nice
