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?

Perfectly balanced black IPA! I’ve had it on tap at a local bar in Ft. Collins, and from a bottle (that I poured into a glass). For some reason I enjoyed it more from a bottle which does not really make sense to me. Either way, this beer deserves a nice rating, for it will be one that I buy often. The high alcohol content is nicely hidden amongst its delicate flavors.

Scopey (11951) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle at Leighton’s thanks to Dirty D. It pours darkest brown - black with a small beige head. The aroma is soft, pine needles, caramel, banana bread, stewed orange, peach and apricot. The taste is bitter, rich roast, umami, liquorice, charred wood ,cocoa, spice, raw alcohol, treacle and peach. Medium body and moderate , foamy carbonation. Nice elements to it, but it is a bit chewy and alcoholic. Not bad overall.
