Our “Velvet M-80” is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ale with a nose full of aroma, a sticky mouthfeel, a malty middle and unctuous hop flavors. G’Knight sports a surprisingly sensuous finish for a beer of its size (8.7% ABV, 60 IBUs). It’s brewed in tribute to a fellow Colorado craft beer pioneer and Vietnam vet who died fighting a 2002 wild fire outside of our Lyons hometown. For all the details behind this tribute follow this link to www.N3978Y.com. G’Mornin’. G’Day. G’Knight.

Can from IrishBoy. Nice caramelly and strong hop aroma. Pine and almond. Nice head on the auburn pour. Dry, chewy flavor, lots of hop but a good bit of nut and wee malt flavors. Very drinkable, very tasty.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2007
Canned. Orange amber coloured. Quite hoppy aroma with toffee notes and a roasty touch. Sweetish fruity and malty flavour with a rather bitter hoppy finish. Slightly weak aftertaste. Medium bodied. Slightly sharp carbonation.

9/15/05. 750ml bottle. 9.2%. Mahogany brown with large tan head. Sweet malty vinous aroma. Sweet up front with bitter ending. Really malty for an IPA and expensive at $16. Have not had it in the can.in the new formulation.

Pours red/brown, with an off-white head. Aroma is hops and malt. Flavor is much the same. A solid brew.

dankman (254) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Yum, this is a different beer. I have never had beer from a can that was this good. It looks like a red smells like an IPA and tastes like a malty IPA, I’d drink this again.

Pours brown with lots of foamy white head. Strong hop and citrus aroma. Taste much the same but with some nice malt flavor. Reminds me a a good IPA.

A nice mix of styles coming together in this great can. Kind of hits you in the face without thinking twice about it at first pour. Amazing great things like this can come in a can.

cheap (4675) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Big glass at Bocktown for $6. Big foamy off white head. Color is hazy iced tea. Big hoppy aroma, like clean pine needles. Big citrus grapefruit rind flavor. Quite an impact on the taste buds. It gives me the feeling like there is perfumy dish soap in this brew. Some mild carbonation. Hops are very one sided and overwhelming. A little sweet initially with each taste but that turns into an offensive bitter bite after it’s in your mouth for a while. A little too much for my girlie lager taste buds. Very coarse and very annoying on the finish, as expected for this style. Will not buy again.

Buddahchild (28) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Wow the nose on this baby is like walking through the hop farm while eating caramels. Smells like an IPA but is dark amber in color. This must be poured from its can. Medium bodies with sweet malts and and big bitter hoppiness that lasts to the finish.
