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?

Tap. Black color with tan white head. Subtle pleasing aroma. Smooth at first then perfect balance of sweet malty and alcohol. Excellent.

The best DIPA (or any IPA, so far) that I have had. This is a sumptuous, opulent ale that starts with a light pine and citrus nose, develops into a near-perfect blend of malt and hops and finishes hoppy and leaves the mouth begging for more. Hard to believe the ABV, it is so well-hidden. Drink this. Drink it now.

maltman53 (328) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - NOV 12, 2013
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!

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!

From bottle. Pours a very dark brown with slight, dissipating, tan head and mild lacing. Nose is grassy hops with a touch of roasted malt. Remarkably smooth with a strong bitter/smoky finish. This is easily one of the best black ipas I’ve ever had. Well done as usual, Odell.

Arizona strong beer festival. Good blend of pine and citrus, with nice toasted undertones. Not too bitter.

In 12oz bottle. Wonderful aroma of pine and dark chocolate, but from there it?s all downhill. Taste is syrupy with dark chocolate and mud. Mouthfeel is sticky, Nyquil-esque. Must be better on draft?!

Frahmo (292) - Idaho, USA - OCT 18, 2013
12 oz bottle, poured a nice black with a single finger of brown foam. Strong malty taste on a medium body. Bitter flavors are toned down. Alcohol content is barely noticable. One of my favorite beers!

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.

djroehler (290) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Extremely dark brown, light cream head. Aroma of cream, malted milk shake really, light high notes of orange citrus. Drinks with a smooth creamy medium body, high bright citrus hops with delicious chocolatey malt, banana and bubblegum background, very light yeasty bread on the finish.
