Drink of the Week: Odell Brewing Co.’s Mountain Standard Double Black IPA

With buckets of rain hitting the West and a blizzard blanketing the East, today’s Drink of the Week is a beer you can curl up with. The Mountain Standard Double Black IPA from Odell Brewing is black as night, but with hopped up aromas, bright notes of citrus and a dark chocolate bitterness that cuts right through its 9.5 percent ABV. Part of the brewery’s Single Serve series, this beer won’t be around forever, so best to enjoy it while you can. And to read how six different black IPAs stacked up in our blind taste-test, check out “Army of Darkness” from our January/February issue. $14/750 ml., odellbrewing.com
