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.

ROGUE (2182) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUL 28, 2016
On tap and 12oz can. Pours a dark amber color with a slightly off white head that sticks around. Aroma of citrusy hops lead on the nose and are followed by a floral sweetness. Maltiness if noticeable, but not overwhelming. Taste is bright but slightly resiny and citrus hops that lead perfectly into malty sweetness with a great balance. The alcohol is hidden well, and leaves tropical notes on the tongue. Finishes smoothly and not too bitter. Carbonation is near perfect. Body is full, but still drinkable.

Dacrza (853) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2016
DATE: June 26, 2016... OCCASION: on the eve of Willow Lake Camp summer six, we begin with Shark Week too!... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter.... pours a dense ruby red body that sports a strong two-finger off-white head that settles to a craggy, chunky half finger of unevenness... lovely floral overtones with the pine that makes an IPA great...thick bread malts form a wall against which a rum-like alcoholic strength is developed... smooth, confident, medium-bodied with a creamy aspect--way too accessible for a beer nearing 9% ABV... mango, grapefruit and sweet pine roil into a strong malt base that strikes caramel and bread... sticky resin enhances the experience--deliciousness! The Oskar Blues folks know how to brew--as well as how to honor the patriarchs of the class beer world... unbelievably agreeable in its palate and rewarding in its flavor profile... another (!) Oskar Blues champion, one I would reach for among others in the genre....

fraternie (988) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Very nicely done, with a creamy texture full of abundant caramel and brown sugar malt flavors giving way to a refreshing piney hop finish, with the heat covered well. Slight citrus notes add balance and complexity.

commonmac (1048) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Tap at the brewery with ECBT crew. 10 oz pour. Copper/amber color with a pleasant off white head. Nose is more malty than anticipated but with a musty hop pine note. Taste is big and assertive with a malty backbone working well with a hoppy bitterness. Finish has a lingering hop presence with a burnt sugar feel. Full bodied but clean. A few of these without certainly make for a long g’knight.
