Can. Roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate, citrus and pine resiny hops. Pours black with a large tan head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with roasted malt and some chocolate malt as well as a rich, full body. Finishes dry, but quite smooth with citrus hop flavors as well as a little bit of pine resiny hop bitterness. Excellent black ipa. wombat23 (2189) - Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2018
12 oz. can. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma and flavors of citrus, roasted malt, pine, chocolate notes. Very tasty. Andrew196 (2065) - Katy, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2017
Lovely pour, perfect, black with a frothy light beige head... Thick and lasting head. Nose is earth, coffee and florals. Thin-medium feel, slight bite. Very interesting palate for this one, earth, coffee, licorice, more florals, then some spearmint. Outstanding version of this style. GTAEgeek (2606) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2017
On tap at Brewer's Republic. Pours black, with a medium, frothy, tan head. Caramel and milk chocolate, with some pine tar, and rye. Sweet and syrupy, with a nice, smooth bitterness. Medium to heavy body, with a syrupy, thick feeling. This is a delicious black IPA. elbernays (1752) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 8, 2017

12floz can, BBD: 02.16.2018, $1.75 unit cost. The ABV indicated on the can is 8.1%, and "double" is not part of name. It's just "Mountain Standard Black IPA." Poured into a pint glass, where it appears a dark brown color with a large sugary hop invoking head.
Smells like green stems, mmm...green. Chewy, moderate bitterness, and latent sweetness are this beer's markings. It's like drinking liquid bark, leaves, and brown sugar. It's fair, but it doesn't elevate my opinion of the style drpimento (3925) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2017
