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?

Pours a dark French roasted coffee color, hoppy nose, palate is like a stout meets a West Coast IPA, caramel/coffee all over the palate, yet a beautiful balance hides the 9.5% ABV, ending with a crisp, hoppy, deep roasted malty finish. This beer is stout meets DIPA. Outstanding!

resevil787 (123) - Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle. Very dark clear reddish brown. Light brown head, medium lacing. Just like all other odell’s, the aroma does not disappoint. Aroma is moderate to heavy hops - floral, resin, citrus. Taste is moderate to heavy bitter sweet. Long duration. Medium to heavy body. Great beer.

commonmac (323) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Tap pour at Town Hall Lanes. A questionable glass holding a wonderful, nearly perfect beer. A roasted malty ale leads but coupled by a compliment of hops. Just a great beer that showcases taste, mouthfeel, aftertaste, and perfection. Please go out and order this one!

EtTuCthulhu (1049) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - NOV 2, 2013
The color is a very nice, very clear, and very dark reddish brown with a large light tan head, and the aroma blends resin hops, floral hops, and a hint of caramel malts. The taste is mildly sweet, a touch bitter, and mildly umami, and the palate combines a slightly boozy finish, a medium body, oily texture, and a soft carbonation.

Bottle pour. Black IPA’s are my favorite and this one hold true to the style. It’s hard to believe this brew is 9.5%. It has a good roasted coffee taste with a solid hop aroma. Well-crafted.

Not sure if I have tasted anything like this. Completely unique. Not highly drinkable but just so unique.

brokephibroke (291) - Mead, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Fantastic subalpine forest aroma. Sweet and coating with a bitter linger. Some dark chocolate which is nice, but would like more hops in the flavor profile.
