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?

Incredible black ipa. I received this beer via a beer trade and they guy stated it was one of his staples. Very different from any other black ipa I ever had. Malty and well balanced. Very tasty.

scooterbub (1014) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark reddish-black with a two inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, hops, pine, citrus, fruit and resin. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a slight bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Pours dark and black with a small off white head. Nose is wood and pine needles, some hay, light chocolate, coffee and berries. The taste is sweet at first but then accompanied but excellent bitterness. The mouthfeel is crisp and sticky, the body is light and the finish is long.

MrBeerFanatic (1005) - Friona, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours a dark caramel color with thick creamy head with great retention. Big aromas of pine/citrus, slight pineapple, chocolate and coffee. Flavors of pine and chocolate upfront, slight earthy/herbal hops and a slight blend of caramel. More on the hop side but has a big malt backbone. Medium to high sweetness with a medium bitterness. On the sweet side all around but the hops poke their heads above it all to make a strong presence. One of the more enjoyable beers I’ve had in a while.

Ericular (953) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Pours deep brown with a thick beige head that’s frothy and long lasting with great lacing. Aroma is a great mix of roast and IPA, running the gamut from chocolate and caramel malts to tropical fruity hops. Taste is malt and alcohol up front, giving way to resiny hops that sustain some bitterness, eventually letting some roastiness through in the end with a faint bready malt aftertaste. Palate is smooth and thick, creamy with a dry finish. More hops than roast here, but overall it works out well. Alcohol is evident but not out of place. Not bad at all!

bookman10 (924) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Pours a dark brownish-black with a fairly thick head. Strong scent of pine in the aroma. Flavor is a nice combination of citrus and pine with some sweetness in the background and finish. This is a very good IPA.

dalekliz (908) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On draft at the brewery. Pours a murky dark golden-brown with off-white lacing. Aroma of pine hops and dark malt. Taste starts with a hoppy bitter bite then gets kind of watery, with some pine and sugar. Lingering light bitter pine notes. Eh, there’s not much going on here.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Black pour with a big, foamy, white head. There’s lots of floral and citrusy hops with a touch of pine. The roasted malts add a bit of chocolate and roast but without the usual chalkiness that I don’t like in most black IPA’s. The body is creamy, medium-full with soft carbonation.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Pours a dark red/brown with light brown head. Smells very hoppy and roasty. Has an amazing combination of warm roasty flavors and complex hop aromas. The flavors combine well enough to balance out. There’s not much as far as coffee aromas go (which I like). Ends with a subtle yet distinct war roasty flavor.

markducommun (875) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Clear, mahogany brown. Light tan head. Light molasses, some floral aromas, light pine. Some alcohol on the nose. Fairly bitter, rounded out by a moderate sweetness. Fairly long, acidic finish. Medium body, some carbonation. Good.
