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?

Pours inky brown, completely black and opaque in the glass, with a big tan head, very fine clinging lacing. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, toffee, coffee, and toast. Medium-full body, zesty and dry. Mild sweetness, then a tiny bit crisp, medium-strong bitter finish. A big, complex brew. Excellent.

Tan, creamy head with a purple black body. Moderate bitterness and medium body. Alcohol is mildly apparent but unfortunately plays a bigger role than Iíd like. Good malt presence.

750 ml bottle from Tournament. Black pour, luscious creamy tan head. Fresh, piny hops aroma. Nice prickly carbonation mouthfeel, Flavor is a combo of roasted malt and more fresh, resinous, piny hops. Awesome beer.

12oz picked up today at the COOP .... Poured into my HotD goblet.. 1" dark tan head atop deep dark brown brew... verging on black... nice sheets of lacing. Nose is very nice... big citrus and a little pine.. some lite chocolate and a touch of sweetness. Good bitterness up front.. resinous hops and a little sweet dark malt... the malts are more roasty black than chocolaty.. a little sweetness with warmth that helps bloom the flavors.... Body is a solid medium with good carbonation. Odell is a gem that seems too many people donít really appreciate.

12 oz bottle: Pours dark, mostly black with hints of dark brown around the edges. Nice tan head, dissipates but still has penty of CO2 release. Aroma is hoppy, mostly cirtus and floral with a slight toasted bread and doughy quality. Taste is nice and hop forward, complex and well balanced with the roasted malts. Smooth, slightly bubbly, almost oily from all the hops. Great offering, probably my favorite Odell to date.

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.

Hazy dark brown. Lots of head. Nice sweet caramel malt backbone. Hoppiness is strong without a ton of bittering on the palate. Really enjoyable brew.

bottled--once i got the cork out it poured dark brown with tight lasting head. aromas of toast, pine and citrus rind. flavors are similar. it is moderately bitter with hop presence. medium bodied black ipa with a lingering sense of hops and burnt malt. pretty decent beer.

I hadnít seen this other than in a bomber, but my local shop now has it in 12 oz 4 packs. Pours a clear dark brown with a large beige head that goes down slowly. Smells of floral hops with just a hint of sweet malt and molasses. Hops followed by fairly sweet malts and molasses, as would be expected from the aroma. Very easy drinking and just a bit syrupy in the mouth. Just a bit sweeter than I would like, so I think it could use a tad more hops to cut the sweetness. That said, this is a very good beer and itís nice to have it in 12 oz bottles.
