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?

freeofthoughts (648) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle pours very dark brown with one finger khaki head. Smell is a little piney with lemony citrus and some sweetness from the grains. The taste is smooth a fairly light, a bit different than the nose. The grain is stronger than the hops and has a moderately strong roast. The hop flavor is mostly in the finish with a bitterness that competes with the grains and a light pine and citrus that let’s it be smooth a malty but just enough bite to be an ipa. It is a clean beer with no off or extremely strong stand out flavors, just nice and mellow throughout. For the strength it does not show it. Another great brew from Odell.

Tap: Dark color with reddish tints. Dry, hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit and dry pine needles. A bitter-sweet taste with notes of leather followed by mild hop bitterness. Quite enjoyable.

Aroma milder than would have thought, hint of hops and toasted malt. Appearance is mildly opaque black or dark brown, taste has a light malt toasting with hops mixed in, well balanced with the high alcohol. Overall a pretty descent seasonal brew from Odell’s.

fletchfighters (1056) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
A-- Poured a near cola color. Moderate pour got a three finger light brown head. Took it’s time to recede but when it did it left all sorts of streaky lacing. Great head retention. S-- Chocolate, grapefruit and lemon. T-- Chocolate and lots of chocolate. M-- Starts as chocolate in the mouth and changes to grapefruit and lemon. Chocolate becomes secondary. Slick grassy lemon finish with medium body and feel. D-- Not a hop bomb at all, quite different. Really liked how it started as chocolate and then went to IPA flavors. Thought the nose could be better though, or bigger. Got a bit sour in the end but very enjoyable and excellent hidden ABV.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Sampled on 10/1/2012 at Odells Brewery. This Black IPA pours a dark brown color from the tap. Medium sized beige foamy head. The aroma is roasted malts and citrusy hops. A medium bodied Black IPA. The malts are fruity, roasty and sweet. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity. Decent carbonation. Nice balance. Seems a little sweet for a black IPA, but it works. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with some lingering hop bitterness.
