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 Colorados 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 MSTs act of balance and harmony within nature or your glass. As the seasons darkness sets in why shouldnt your beer become darker as well?

M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - JAN 25, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 One of my favorite ABAs. Restrained dark complexities balance assertive but respectful citrusy hop notes to create an outstanding ale. After a days work, this is at the top of my list. Earthy, bold, balanced, and satisfying. To take this up a notch, it does just fine in the frig for several months. I actually prefer it fresh, or with about three months of 40 on it. Self-righteous definitely isnt doing that.

Aroma is pine/pine needles, spices and dark malts. The flavor is dark malts, chocolate, pine needles, grapefruit and an acidic/bitter/slightly sour finish.

Cocoa nibs aroma, complex fruits, dark fruit, woody cherry toasted coconut. Same taste, some cola, not much booze, complex dark malts, fairly malty, mild dryish finish. KInd of a barleywine, more malty than ipa.

Bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk dregs run. Appearance - opaque brown to black. Nose - toffee and marmalade. Taste - more of the same. Luscious marmalade and toffee. A touch of chocolate kicking I around the finish. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - like this.

Bottle. Dark Reddish Brown in colour. Fantastic Ruby Red against light. Good creamy tan head. Good lacing. Very Malty; toasty malts, toffee, coffee, chocolate. Spicy; peppery. Hoppy; piney resinous and floral hops. Fruity; orange and grapefruit citrus. Nice malt/hop/fruit balance. Initially sweet then moderately bitter malty spicy and citrus fruity hoppy throughout. Quite dry and salty. Bitter hoppy finish. Liked this a lot. Terrific Double BIPA! (2016-08-19)

ketchepillar (1195) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Can. Doesnt stand out in any way. Aroma is some roasted barley with a bit of hops on top. Flavor has some nice chocolate. Hop profile is minimal and non-distinct. A little astringent.

Livendadream (230) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Can pours a dark brown color with a red hue. A huge Insanely dense tan head that hangs around for the intire drink, leaving lace on glass at every swallow. Aromas of pine,baked sugar, toasted bread and caramel. Tastes of roasted grain, resin, and toffee. Medium body, smooth coating mouthfeel, perfect carbonation,and a malty, toasty finish. This is a perfectly balanced beer. The alcohol content is hidden well, making this beer very easy to consume. Excellent hops flavors meld nicely with the roasted grains, creating a magical IPA. Nice!
