COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As winter sets in we embrace the darkness with this Black IPA—released as Daylight Savings falls back to MST. We brew it with hops handpicked on Colorado’s Western Slope. The assertive American hop profile and roasted malt character balance perfectly with just a touch of bitterness. Go ahead. Give in to the dark side.

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.

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.

Can from Baggott St wines. Pours black with reddish hue with tan head. 8.1% version. Pine, earth, black berry, hints of leather. Flavour is charcoal earth, sweet blackberry jam with an ashen wood finish. Sweet dark fruit finish. Smooth and cream mouthfeel. A classy black ipa.

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

Very good black double IPA. Aroma is Hap's roast dark malt. Had a very long lasting frothy Light tan head and lots of sticky lace. Flavor is like nose, balanced and easy drinking. Great finish and smooth body.
