Your daily pint for Monday, Oct. 28, 2013 is: ODELL MOUNTAIN STANDARD

What it is: a 9.5%-ABV, 60-IBU imperial black IPA.

What it tastes like: One of the best examples of a black IPA we’ve tasted. This beer first hits the tongue with roasted malts and caramel sweetness; a singular juicy orange hop note emerges along the way and brightens the big, creamy wash of malts. A combination of roasted malt and hop bitterness leaves the tongue pleasantly dry after each sip.

About those hops: Odell sources hops grown along Colorado’s western slope for this beer.

About the availability: Rejoice in the fact that this seasonal is out on shelves right now. Be saddened by the fact that it will disappear after December.

In other Odell beer news: The brewery just released the latest edition in its Woodcut series. Woodcut No. 7 is an oak-aged Russian imperial stout. Go out and grab a bottle. Last year, we opened up all of the Woodcuts to date and they were incredible.
