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?

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Tasted on tap at the brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado. Creamy head with a great dark, hoppy aroma. Very tasty dark body with a very floral, hoppy aroma. Despite the high ABV, you can’t taste it. Highly recommended.

"12 ouncer from a 4-pack. after Stone SSR and 15th AV, I don’t think any other black ipa hangs with this bad boy. had it before bringing in the chrostmas tree...and they smelled the same! well, maybe a little more roast in the beer, but you get the idea. the hops used blended expertly with the dark malt to create a rich, piney brew, with roasted barley, licorice, chocolate, and an overall feeling of joy towards fellow man in the background. Similar to Deschutes Hop in the Dark but bigger. DEElicious. Between a 4.3 and a 4.4! Tasted damn fresh too!"

phaleslu (9426) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2010
750 ml bottle from Randall’s. Pours a very dark brown color with a big, sticky tan head. Aroma of piney hops, grapefruit citrus, peppery spices, roasted malts, toasted sugar, and cream. Flavor is essentially the same, with a nice balance of earthy hops and roasted malts. Medium-bodied, with a roasty mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation. Good black IPA, tried back-to-back with the Grand Teton Trout hop and rated the same.
