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?

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 don’t really appreciate.

A black beer with a red tinge and a small beige head. The aroma is fruit and pine hops, very nice. The flavor starts with roasted malt flavor and ends with very good fruity and pine hops characteristics. Very enjoyable.

Pours jet black with a thick brown head and tons of lacing. Aromas are alcohol, malt, and pine hops. The taste is bitter hops and burnt malt. The moutfeel is creamy and long. Delicious!

As far as Black ipa’s go, this is the pinnacle. It pours deep brown/black with very little head but a fair amount of lacing nonetheless. The smell is roasted grain, light citrus, and caramelized sugar. The taste is brilliant. There’s a beautiful porter like depth balanced with crisp refreshing hops that come together like magic. Until I find a superior black ipa, this one will remain an almost perfect score for me.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with moderate tan head. Good retention and moderate lacing. Moderate aroma of citrus and floral hops with a hint of roast. Flavor is a nice balance--bitter chocolate and toasted grains are there, but just enough to contrast with the nice hop profile. Not as much black patent bitterness as many black IPAs and a nice mix of citrus and piney hops. Medium mouthfeel and a clean finish. Very nice.

scoth (543) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2010
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.

750mL as a Christmas gift. Pours a translucent dark brown with ENORMOUS foamy tan head. Aroma is crushed by the head, but still quite faint after it finally collapses. Hoppy and a bit smoky, the charred body has a subtle chocolate note through chewy malt backbone. Smooth and disturbingly light for a 9.5% beer.

TheGB (524) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2011
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.

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
